New Haven Mayor John DeStefano - a Democrat - plans to ask the state Legislature to allow illegal immigrants who live in the city to be able to vote in municipal elections
New Haven has about 10,000 non-citizen immigrants. New Haven 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.
