I have to respectfully disagree with this. Unless an alien is maintaining lawful nonimmigrant status, all males between the ages of 18 and 26 are required to register with Selective Service, including those unlawfully present in the U.S. The registration requirement is not limited to only permanent resident aliens.

Mr. Devore's comment is absolutely correct. Here is what the rule is:
If you are a man ages 18 through 25 and living in the U.S., then you must register with Selective Service. It’s the law. According to law, a man must register with Selective Service within 30 days of his 18th birthday. Selective Service will accept late registrations but not after a man has reached age 26. You may be denied benefits or a job if you have not registered. You can register at any U.S. Post Office and do not need a social security number. When you do obtain a social security number, let Selective Service know. Provide a copy of your new social security number card; being sure to include your complete name, date of birth, Selective Service registration number, and current mailing address; and mail to the Selective Service System, P.O. Box 94636, Palatine, IL 60094-4636.

Hence, he is correct and I was wrong. My bad. Sorry.
