I hear you knocking...but you can't come in

Do foreign nationals have the right to enter our country with the intent to demonstrate and try and change our laws, customs and elections?
“The plan was simple. Montrealer Sasha Dyck and some friends would drive to Washington to join the Women's March. But when the six Canadians and two French nationals reached the border at Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle, in Quebec, they ran into trouble.
U.S. border agents asked what they planned to do in the United States. “We said we were going to the Women’s March on Saturday and they said, ‘Well, you’re going to have to pull over,’ ” Dyck told the Guardian. Agents then searched their car and examined their cellphones, according to Dyck. Each member of the group was fingerprinted and had their pictures taken.
Finally, after two hours, the agents told Dyck and his friends to turn around. “They said, ‘You’re headed home today,’ ” Dyck told the Guardian. Officials warned that they’d be arrested if they tried to cross at a different spot this weekend, Dyck said. “And that was it, they didn’t give a lot of justification.”

Uh, Dyck. They didn’t have to give you justification. You don’t have the right to come into our country for any reason. 

I mean, the Left is having kittens over Russia, supposedly, hacking a political organization’ s email system and passing it on to WikiLeaks for distribution to the Wide Wide World via the WWW. Why? Because it is an attempt to influence.  Now that being true…..what is demonstrating in the streets?

Now I know that foreigners within the US have the same rights for due process within our legal system. But those rights are limited.  For example….They don’t have the right to vote.  They don’t have the right to drive a car without an acceptable license….Or

But there is the First Amendment that says.....”…..  or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

The crux of this is the words “..right of the people.” Who are the “people?”  Well, the Second  Amendment says, “…..the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

That makes it plain. “The people are citizens.” Various laws/regulations make it plain what the words mean.

“In general, non-immigrant aliens are forbidden to possess any firearms or ammunition. But there is a big exception for a legal alien who: in possession of a hunting license or permit lawfully issued in the United States
(See Title 18, USC Chapter 44, Section 922, part (y)(2) for details.)

Green-card holders and immigrant aliens who do not yet have their green card are both okay under federal law, although many people (including gun dealers, law enforcement officers, etc.) are not aware of the distinction or the hunting license exception, and erroneously think that either you have a green card, or you can't have guns.

Also, non-citizen cannot purchase a firearm from a federally licensed firerams dealer unless they have been a resident of their state for 90 days. So, no, tourists on short visits cannot walk into guns stores to get "protection" during their trip. Sorry. (I've been asked that multiple times.)”

So you can’t come into this country with the intent of demonstrating and trying to influence us in the relationship with our government anymore than you hack the DNC legally.

"Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them." - Karl Popper “It’s the presumption that Obama knows how all these industries ought to be operating better than people who have spent their lives in those industries, and a general cockiness going back to before he was president, and the fact that he has no experience whatever in managing anything. Only someone who has never had the responsibility for managing anything could believe he could manage just about everything.” - Thomas Sowell in Reason Magazine
