"Julian Assange has no First Amendment freedoms. He's sitting in an Embassy in London. He's not a US citizen," [CIA Director Mike] Pompeo said.
The courts would disagree with such a xenophobic view. Our constitutional rights being applied to foreign nationals are exactly why the immigration ban was/is overturned. Our declaration of independence says 'all men are created equal' and so enshrined in our 14th amendment, there's no limitation at our border. Looking at someone on the other side of some invisible line, and saying to them, you're not a person -- that's messed up.
When the constitution limits rights explicitly to citizens it is expressed clearly, such as the requirements for holding presidential office. Go pull up a copy of the constitution yourself, and re-read it, word search for 'citizen' and refresh yourself.
Heres some people who agree -- I'm sure there's plenty of material on both sides of xenophobia.
