your grade in American History is an F... you really really really need to read
and understand the Bill of Rights... note the specific uses of "person",
"persons" and "people"... also note the distinct lack of use of "citizen"...
the Bill of Right expressly covers ALL PEOPLE ON US SOIL... legal immigrants,
illegal immigrants, asylum seekers, tourists, migrant workers, native peoples,
naturalized citizens, natural-born citizens, etc...
