I'm not sure that significantly more ink or pixels are needed to say "US citizens and residents only."

Yah... but "residents" is a decidedly nebulous term, although "legal residents" would certainly be an improvement.

Actually "legal resident" is also nebulous depending on the particular law that it is being proscribed to. A legal resident for immigration purposes is different to a legal resident for tax purposes.

Also it is constitutionally unclear as to whether even legal permanent residents are a protected class. The provisions of the constitution dealing with diversity, citizenship and aliens are dealing with state diversity, citizenship and alien status. What is constitutionally clear is states and the federal government cannot discriminate against non-US citizens for the purposes of education and health care but may for certain state benefits.
