    90% of Democrats have never met a illegal alien they didn't like.

    More classic conservative hypocrisy…

    What happened to the rightist mantra of allowing local communities decide?

    If the voters of a given jurisdiction want to allow non-citizens to vote in local elections, what grounds do you have to be critical?

    Only a extreme left wing wacko would think that it's not only OK for a non citizen to vote, but also one that is here illegally. :rolleyes:

    They've always been 'foreign nationals', this isn't anything new - its simply the definition of the term 'foreign national'.

    You didn't do too well in school I take it.

    There's no such thing as "being here illegally". An "illegal alien" is simply someone who committed the misdemeanor of failing to stop at the border for inspection before entry. They may be deported, of course, to their home country, but they aren't breaking the law simply by "being here" - they broke it only at the point of entry. And furthermore - states and local governments are allowed to determine the qualifications of their voters, so long as they include all citizens over 18 who have not committed felonies, they are free to include or exclude anyone who does not fall into that group. If a state or locality wanted to allow anyone 12 years old and up to vote - they could. If they want to allow felons to vote - they can. And if they want to allow non-citizens to vote, they may also do that.
