    New Haven Asks State to Allow Non-Citizens to Vote

    New Haven Mayor John DeStefano plans to ask the state Legislature to allow illegal immigrants who live in the city to be able vote in municipal elections.

    DeStefano said on Tuesday that the proposal would build a more engaged community and follows the lead of other cities, the New Haven Register reports.

    The Register reports that 10,000 to 12,000 undocumented residents are believed to live in New Haven.

    The mayor needs to be recalled and replaced, then shamed out of town.

    It's amazing how stupid people become once they get into office.

    Let illegals vote...you have to be kidding.

    What about felons? Why shouldn't they vote? Why not the relatives of the illegals who are still in theior native countries? They are dependent on the money the illegal residents send home. They too have an interest in ALL US elections.

    Since the Big Eared, Muslim Loving Shit Head says we are no longer a Christian Nation, I want to see his ass and all those pin heads in DC working on Dec 25th. If he thinks we are no longer a Christian Nation, then they should all work those CHRISTIAN holidays.

    Allowing those piss ants from across the border to vote in our elections is a CRIME. You have to be a LEGAL resident to vote.

    Outrageous. This just affirms my belief that we should start mass deportations and put the military on the border.

    The mass deportation should start with all politicians that are or have been in office!

    If those involved aren't out of their elected positions come Monday morning,

    blame the people of New Haven!

    The only way to get your government back is to start at the local level.

    I am sure the Mayor didn't just come to his stupidity at a moments notice!

    In the news story carried by the press it had a pic of the mayor flanked by a number of city officials in support of his announcement. ALL of them should be looking for jobs on Monday. This kind of thinking is a sickness that needs to be flushed out of government.

    It'll be interesting to see if the citizens of New Haven grow a pair over the weekend.

    IF the citizens of New Haven "Had A Pair" to begin with, this P.O.S. would NOT already be Mayor.

    Not sure if this is true but even if it is

    You guys need to get your heads out of the sand or your 4th point of contact

    This was adopted in France several years ago. It happens when a segment of the society becomes large enough to be needed and recognized.

    I dont think we should allow illegals to stay but I do think immigration has been the life blood of America since its founding. I also know that many industries and small buisnesses rely on motivated hard working individuals.

    What amazes me though is that individuals and groups once or twice removed from immigtration or maybe even 4 or 5 generations removed feel they should benefit from all this land has to offer simply because they were born here. Maybe their grandparents or parents worked for the american dream but not this particular person or mobs of people demanding deportation of others.
