It's a problem. Look at the difficulties involved in the Yemenis at Gitmo. Obama would love to repatriate them, but Yemen won't take them back. When you have an illegal immigrant from a country that has no government, or whose government is openly hostile, and they are effectively agents of that government, or agents of another hostile power, your options diminish dramatically. We can count on Britain, for example, to keep persons who are persona non grata from even getting on a plane to the US, but we cannot count on Haiti to do it.

Usually, they're spies with diplomatic immunity.
