More Democrats demanding that illegal aliens vote.


The Mayor of New Haven, CT is asking for permission from the state government to allow illegal aliens to vote in municipal elections.

Just one day after announcing his intent to try and block the Federal “Secure Communities” program, the mayor of “Sanctuary City” New Haven, CT announced he would be asking the state legislature to grant illegal aliens in New Haven the right to vote in municipal elections.

Mayor John DeStefano argues that illegal aliens who live in New Haven pay local taxes and their kids go to school in the city, and deserve the right to vote:

DeStefano said he plans to lobby the state for a “resident voting rights” bill that would allow any resident of New Haven—regardless of immigration status—to vote in municipal elections in New Haven. He said he’ll launch the effort during this upcoming legislative session, which runs from February to May. This bill is about “how you define community, and how you define responsibility in community,” he said.

The Fifteenth Amendment (Amendment XV) to the United States Constitution: “Section 1. The right of CITIZENS of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude.”

But why should the mere Constitution give this far-left mayor any pause? He has already turned immigration laws on their head.

DeStefano, made national headlines in 2007 when the city approved a program that provides municipal identification cards for all residents — including illegal immigrants — to provide access to services such as banking and the library. The cards have also been used for illegals to – ILLEGALLY – access WIC, food stamps, free diapers and other welfare benefits funded by both Federal and state sources.
