What really gets me though is his parting comment: "Freedom of speech in the U.S.doesn't apply to noncitizens." Last time I checked, freedom of speech meant that you were free to say whatever you want, which he did. It doesn't mean that you'd be free from consequences for that speech. Nobody put him in jail or threatened him with bodily harm. They simply gave him what he asked for. Now, I guess you could argue that the government shouldn't take action against you for political speach and I'd buy that. It comes down to grant money and the conditions for receiving it, I suppose.
