74. People here on green cards can't vote either
And they have to register for the draft too.

The counterbalancing benefit is that in the event they are drafted they have another country to flee to, without retribution, if they want to get out of serving. They also have an option to serve in the US military. It's like Monty Hall giving them the choice to keep the money or give it up for what's behind Door #3, only they already know what's behind Door #3.
