why does a jury of peers have to be citizens?

If you live in an area which has a lot of non-citizens then they would be your peers. Also, if a non-citizen committed a crime and they went to trial who would a jury of their peers be? This goes both ways.

I guess it all depends whether you believe in open borders or not. I tend towards more freedom all around.
