CT MAYOR WANTS ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS TO VOTE
New Haven Mayor John DeStefano will petition the Connecticut legislature to allow illegal immigrants to vote in municipal elections. According to local sources, about 10,000 foreign nationals live in the city. DeStefano claims that illegal aliens pay taxes through their rent payments and therefore should be able to vote.
New Haven has long been considered a ‘sanctuary city’ since it began issuing ID cards to illegal immigrants allowing them easier access to public services in 2007. If the measure should pass, New Haven will join Chicago and several towns in Maryland which allow foreign nationals to vote in municipal elections.
