Why am I not surprised?

A typical puff piece from the NY Times - Push Is On to Give Legal Immigrants Vote in New York. As usual the "push" comes from the usual "activists" and "advocates".
"This would be seismic in its impact," said Roberto Ramirez, a political consultant and lawyer who has served as a state assemblyman and chairman of the Bronx Democratic Party. "Both parties would have to develop a different mindset to address policy issues for those residents who have historically not been part of the political process."
Maybe because they're citizens of another country, Brainiac. And then there are the places that want to give illegal aliens the vote.
