Can't be, or they wouldn't let them into the NHL.
US schools need to educate Americans that there are other countries out there.
Conversely, people from New Mexico have occasionally had trouble convincing telephone sales agents that they are in the United States, have not called the wrong number, and do not need to apply via their own country.
