To move to other rights, should a resident alien not get a fair trial or be subject to torture?
Under the spirit (and letter) of our laws, no. The whole idea is that those rights are endowed to all people and are not subject to being "granted" by a government. To reserve them to citizens, or any other sub-class is to invalidate them as natural rights.
Sometimes it’s nice not to destroy the world for a change.
