Should Noncitizens Be Allowed to Vote?

Hayduk_300x300

Ron Hayduk

Ron Hayduk on Jacobin  offers an argument that some Americans — wrongly - might view as unAmerican — noncitizen voting. Noncitizen voting was common across the United States until around WWII, when the Red Scare and nativism gripped the nation.   Should the U.S. expand the franchise to all residents like Sweden, Norway, the Netherlands, Denmark, Ireland, and other nations do?
