If an illegal immigrant can prove they live in the US, and pay taxes to our government should they be allowed to vote? 35% of voters polled said yes. It is tempting to let them vote if they are paying taxes. But then logic tells me: if convicted felons pay taxes and can't vote, why should people who are currently breaking our laws be allowed to vote? We shouldn't treat them better than we treat our citizens. If the laws apply to the people who are supposed to be here, people here illegally should have to obey our laws, as well.
