Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should the Government Allow Immigrants Who Are Here Illegally to Become US Citizens?"
"Well, you know, the word citizen is largely used to describe individuals who have the full set of rights which would include service on a jury, the ability to vote, the ability to collect Social Security. I consider everyone who lives in the State of Connecticut to be a resident of the State of Connecticut. And because they're a resident, they should have all of the rights and privileges that run with being a resident.
Now, they may not include all the rights and privileges of being a citizen, but there's no difference, when it comes to the rights as a resident, whether it's access to a beach or a library, or ability to call on a police department to investigate a crime. During the 14 years that I was mayor, I had a great relationship with the immigrant community, undocumented, documented, visiting, didn’t make any difference to me. We have to provide services."
