On an historical note, the KGB was never very successful in infiltrating Soviet nationals into the U.S. as "illegals" or "non-official cover" (NOC) agents. it was much easier--and more effective--to seduce or subvert U.S. citizens to work on behalf of the USSR. All of the great Soviet spies of the Cold War era were U.S. citizens, not Soviet citizens acting as "sleepers".
