We don’t need no steenkin’ badges

This is really much simpler than declaring someone an enemy combatant:

“The burden of proof is on the individual to show they’re legally entitled to be in the United States,” said ICE spokeswoman Kice.

Among the terrifying things here is that US citizens don’t really need any documentation at all. Social security numbers aren’t mandatory, and births ought to be recorded but there’s no penalty to the baby whose appearance wasn’t documented. So the Immigration people are basically saying that once a doubt gets into their minds about whether you’re a citizen, you’re toast.
