Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., on Friday announced his intention to introduce a new bill that would pull funding from cities that allow non-U.S. citizens to vote, a direct response to a decision made by the New York City Council on Thursday that allows 800,000 legal noncitzens to vote in municipal elections. 

"No city which allows non-U.S. citizens to vote should receive U.S. government funds," Rubio stated. "Next week I am going to file a bill to make that the law."

The New York City Council’s decision would allow noncitizen residents, still not be able to vote in state and federal elections, a local vote. Illegal migrants would not be allowed to vote in any capacity.
