    This mayor should be recalled and thrown out of office. Wonder if his bill included legal aliens? If not, why?

    The right to vote is not a right because you live here, it is a right because you are a citizen. First local elections, next State, then Federal? What is becoming of our country?

    Ummm...why? It has to pass through their local elected officials. If it does pass it would only be for local elections not federal elections. I thought you conservatives were all about deciding these type of things at the local level?

    It opens the box up, legal wise.
    Where did I say I was a conservative?
    Even if it is a local issue, why would you support it?
    They are "illegals". They should not be in the US to begin with.

    I wouldn't support it. At the same time...saying the guy should be recalled and thrown out of office...what happens if the citizens of his city agree with him?

    Exactly...we have an issue with immigration enforcement....that is a federal issue that needs to be solved. Some states have decided to go the direction of enforcing their own laws (like Arizona and Georgia) and apparently some commutimes think that as long as your paying taxes in the community maybe you should have a voiece.

    The citizens in the south agreed with secession, too. What's your opinion on that?

    Who wants to to bet that this clown thinks that most of the illegals will vote for him?

    Secession is a little different than allowing people to vote in local elections.
