In the Fourth Circuit's decision, US vs Nicolas Carpio-Leon, the court says that illegal aliens have no second amendment or fifth amendment rights? I am not a lawyer, but would like to know:
1. Does anyone here agree or disagree with that point of view? What other rights do illegal aliens not have? First mendment rights, habeus corpus?
2. Do other non-"legal citizens" also not have these rights, e.g. legal immigrants, tourists, businessmen coming to work in the the US legally, conference attendees. etc?
3. If this is true, what is the consequence for the US?
I do not think that this is the 'final' word in this area. Things are warming up for the US Supreme Court to step in.
For people who don't know what you are talking about, here is a link to the case:
