American citizen. Born in Fresno, California. Taken to detention in Arizona because he kept his birth certificate at home.
When I saw Dan Lungren‘s name as principal sponsor of H.R. 4975, a bill subtitled “To provide for habeas corpus review for unprivileged enemy belligerents,” my eyes did a doubletake.
