Catholics take Holy Communion very seriously - for us it's not a symbol but the actual Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. So one reason we ask non-Catholics not to receive Communion is to protect them from judgement (see 1 Cor. 11: 27). Secondly because (as the word inplies) Communion is about acknowleding union with the Catholic Church - a non-Catholic receiving Commuion would be in a sense lying since they are not in union with the Catholic Church.
The US Catholic Bishops put out an document called "Happy Are Those Who Are Called to His Supper" that talks about Catholic Communion and who can recieve.
