As an immigration officer, you have been assigned to prepare a prisoner exchange between the U.S. and the Philippines. Explain how you would accomplish this assignment. What are the statutes involved? How would you handle the issues of claims of torture in foreign prisons by US exchange prisoners? Do you think, there is a need for a treaty between the U.S. and the foreign country for prisoner exchanges? Do prisoner exchanges come under extradition statutes and why?
Your supervisor asks you to produce an opinion paper on the prisoner exchange program, but he or she does not like to read much and restricts your opinion paper to 2- to 3-pages.
Create a 2- to 3-page report in a Microsoft Word document that includes the answers to the following questions:
Your paper should cite the statute and analyze the language of the prisoner exchange statute. It should address the US Constitutional 8th Amendment related to cruel and unusual punishment issues. If a treaty is required for prisoner exchanges, explain what information should be included in the treaty that would prevent a US court from violating the treaty?
Support your responses with examples.
Cite any sources in APA format.
