Green cards or citizens?

Reader comment on item: "24" and Hollywood's Discovery of Radical Islam

Submitted by Robert Smith (United States), Jan 19, 2005 at 16:37

With so many Muslims in the United States, and especially in Michigan, it would be interesting to know how many over the years have become citizens or applied for a green card vs the number who are eligible; in essence, those who prefer to be considered as aliens working in the USA.

I would not be surprised if more than 75% are aliens. This indicates that the majority believe that in order to keep the Islamic faith one cannot accept citizenship of another country. How can these people complain about being singled out for having their rights threatened when they refuse to acknowledge that one can be an American citizen and still maintain their religious beliefs.

Is it not reasonable then to think of them as possible threats to the USA because their loyalties are with their country of religious origin?
