The chairman of the Connecticut Republican Party is dismayed by a mayor’s plan to ask state legislators to allow illegal immigrants who live in New Haven to vote in municipal elections, characterizing the proposal as a “publicity stunt.”

Connecticut Republican Party Chairman Jerry Labriola told FoxNews.com that while the organization believes in “inclusiveness,” citizenship has long been a standard requirement for voting rights.
