I would also refer you to my post #147 - You cannot view the Bill of Rights as recognizing rights as being held by all men while viewing it as only respecting them in regards to citizens without certain implications in regards to the nature of the nation.

"If the rights are inherent in all men,
and the US chooses only to recognize them in citizens,
but not in non-citizens,
it is denying rights which by definition
those people have by virtue of living,
and thus is not truly advocating freedom.
Just food for thought."

Beautiful, MWS.

I believe that, too.
If a man is on United States controlled territory,
his rights should be recognized,
except in time of national emergency,
when even a citizen's rights are curtailed.
