No one has a RIGHT to be admitted. And looking at one person more stringently than another for whatever reason isnt violating their rights. An infant, if disease free, poses no threat whatsoever. A twenty five year old man, on the other hand, will require an extensive screening to determine eligibility.
And that's fair enough, of course, provided you do so based on reasonable criteria. Ethnic origin is not a reasonable criterion, and neither is religion. Nationality would be, but that isn't the criteria used (even though the US sometimes claims that that it is used).
