    we return people back to their country of origin
    after that it is between the country and their citizen

    we have ended the injustice we have inflicted

    and we will have been just in turning out the not guilty parties who stood trial; we will have dispensed our justice


    then it is time to return them to their homeland to be dealt with as their own nation would provide

    we don't care what they do with them after their citizen has left our nation's shores

    that is between the citizen of the country and the country of origin
