Treatment of Non-US Citizens

As someone who has been very close to some non American citizens throughout my life I would have to agree with Mora that non American citizens should be treated just like any other citizen. That is the only true way to keep a person's dignity and to show respect. I have a very close friend who is a non US citizen and i asked them what they thought. They agreed wholeheartedly with the idea that they should be given the same rights as citizens as long as they were interacting with the US government.
Now there are plenty of people who would disagree. My problem with that is that there is very little distinction between cruel treatment and torture, and even when there is distinction it is very blurry and unclear. That is why neither should be allowed against anyone. No one deserves to be treated in such a way ever and if there was ever a country allowing any of that, I would hope the UN or the Geneva Convention would put some clear and distinct rules in place.
