The Mayor of New Haven, CT has announced that he hopes to ask the state legislators to allow illegal aliens in his city to be granted the right to vote.Why is John DeStefano Jr. pressing for a change in the law that would allow people living illegally in the country (and his city) to vote?He says “to build a more engaged participatory community”The New Haven Register reports that the change to the law could bring a substantial pool of new voters to DeStefano’s camp. The paper estimates as many as 12,000 undocumented people are living in the New Haven area.That begs the question: Is there another motive besides building “a more engaged participatory community” behind DeStephano’s idea? Possibly.Just last month Mr. DeStefano was re-elected to a record 10th term as mayor of New Haven, but the margin of victory was not that large. Of the estimated 64,000 registered voters in the city, fewer than 15,000 participated in the last election. Adding a potential pool of 10-12,000 new voters could make certain that DeStefano doesn’t face such a problem in the future.
