Due process is the entitlement of a citizen to?

Usually refers to rights when subject to law enforcement or judicial action, or agency rulemaking that impacts the rights of citizens - due process meets constitutional requirements, referring to both procedure and substantial rights of citizens. For example, if a citizen has a legal right to land and the government needs to build a freeway through it, the government can't just take it, due process requires at least notice, fair market compensation and opportunity for judicial review of the decision-making.

What is infringed?

An infringement is a minor offense which involves breaking the terms of a law or an agreement, or by simply violating a rule. It can sometimes lead to legal penalties.

The due process ensures that a person will be provided with a clear notice as to what they are being accused of. These individuals are also allowed the opportunity to file a grievance. Should the individual not agree with the determination made in their case they have the right to appeal the legal decision that was made.

Did The removal of Native Americans from their lands by the Indian Removal Act of 1830 violated their political legal and human rights?

You might want to check out the Constitution's position on that in the 1830s--I dont think that, according to the constitution, the Native Americans had many rights at that time so perhaps their rights were not violated because they had none at all. If you were talking about the universal rights we have today regarding all beings, then they were DEFINITELY violated--they had no political say, they had no inclusion in legal rights, and they were raped, tortured, moved out of their homes, and killed brutally.
