In other countries, like Mexico, there is JAILTIME for a foreigner trying to influnce their political process.

4A is about search and seizure. However, since they are innocent till proven guilty, a search warrant would still be required before entering their premises.
Although I may be in the minority here, I believe that the BoR applies to citizens and visitors alike, except where the wording explicitly refers to citizens. Amendments 15, 19, 24, and 26 contain such wording. 1A does not.
Of more interest is 14A: "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive ANY PERSON (caps are mine) of life, liberty or property, without due process of law; nor deny to ANY PERSON within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."
Notice that this amendment clearly distinguishes between a citizen and "any person". This amendment affords visitors (any person) the right to due process and to equal protection of the laws. Due process includes 4A, so searching the home of an (alleged) illegal alien would require a warrant. Also, one of those laws is 1A. That means Piers Morgan has the right to speak.
While we're looking at 14A, notice that this amendment clearly prevents any State from making any law that abridges the privileges of citizens of the United States. Seems pretty clear that this means any State law restricting firearms is unconstitutional. 2A says we have the RKBA. 14A says the States can't make laws restricting that. So, as far as I can tell, the States do NOT have the right to legislate gun control (and neither does the Federal government).
