This paper was written in an effort to highlight the guarantees of procedural due process that America provides to its own citizens, as well as those that are of international citizenship. In so doing, American Due Process Jurisprudence is compared to the minimum standards that the United Nations stipulates via the United Declaration on Human Rights. Also included is an accounting of actual due process deprivations that have been inflicted upon persons that should have been entitled to nothing less than the utmost of legal protections whilst visiting a country, and although the arresting country promised to abide by the UDHR, extended due process deprivations were a direct result of these countries not following the guarantees of international law they vowed to uphold.
