Could American government decide you are cult leader, your house a "compound" and send armed agents to burn you out, killing everyone inside? Naah, couldn't happen in America!
Could the government decide that a relative child of yours which has escaped a tyrannical government elsewhere, and saw his parents die during the trip, be forcibly dragged out of your house, and send back into the prison of country of his birth? Naah, couldn't happen in America!
You're right, Morgan was right to laugh at your Ben.
