    Does the Constitution allow for legal rights for illegal aliens?

    Of course they do.
    I don't have proof for any of this, but you have to wonder.

    depends on what kind of "rights" we're talking about.

    Some rights. There are certainly some that are reserved for citizens. However, notably, the Bill of Rights never uses the word citizen. Everyone in this country, regardless of how they came to be there, is protected by the Bill of Rights.

    There is nothing in the Bill Of Rights that says one way or the other.

    I dont think uninvited guests should have rights. I do think if those guest are allowed to stay and work for years and years at some point they do earn rights.

    Sounds more like privileges than rights. Isn't the point of negative rights that they don't have to be earned?
