ABSTRACT
The article presents a spectrum-based analytical framework that probes the Bill of Rights of aliens by separating them into a spectrum of definable system of laws. It asserts that the disorder is a product of the exclusion of aliens from the gains of maturing concepts of equal protection with due process of law. It also contends that the Guantanamo cases have added to the process of reunification of the two separate allocation of rights within the limits of constitutional protection.
