The city council of New York recently voted to allow noncitizens to vote in local elections. Critics have warned that this is a test run for allowing all illegal immigrants to vote in all elections.
In response, Florida’s Republican Senator Marco Rubio is drafting a nw bill which would deny federal funding to places that allow noncitizens to vote.
This is an excellent idea. There should be consequences for this.

Sen. Rubio announces bill to withhold funding from cities that allow noncitizens to vote
Sen. Marco Rubio says he’s ready to tighten the belt on government funding for cities with voting noncitizens.
Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida announced Friday that he will be introducing legislation to pull funds from any U.S. city that allows noncitizens to vote. The bill is a direct response to a Thursday decision from the New York City Council, who opened voting to their hundreds of thousands of residents without citizenship.
“No city which allows non-U.S. citizens to vote should receive U.S. government funds,” Rubio said. “Next week I am going to file a bill to make that the law.”
The New York City Council on Thursday approved a measure to allow the nearly 800,000 legal noncitizens in the metropolis to vote in municipal elections.
Good for Rubio for taking this on.
