The Democrats in New York are preparing to allow 800,000 residents, who are not citizens, to vote in local elections.
Unsurprisingly, the Democrats are disregarding the Constitution and American citizens’ birth rights, to a fair election, by attempting to tip the scales further in their favor, in an already deep blue, Democrat stronghold.
The state of New York has turned into an authoritarian nightmare and New York City, is its rotting core. With Mayor DeBlasio’s incompetent leadership throughout the pandemic, the city has seen a steady decline into a wallowing cesspool of crime and poverty.
In order to keep up their constant barrage of destruction of what was once, a great city, the Democrats have decided that they would just like to change election rules now – please and thank you.
Only American citizens are allowed to vote, but according to the proposed rule change, dubbed the “Our City, Our Vote” legislation, those who hold green cards, maintain legal work status in the United States and DACA recipients will be able to participate in local elections.
Ydanis Rodriguez, a City Councilman, told the New York Times that the legislation would be a very good thing for the Democratic party, as it will help them prevent “voting rights from being attacked.”
He said, “It’s important for the Democratic Party to look at New York City and see that when voting rights are being attacked, we are expanding voter participation.”
In October, the Republican National Committee announced that Montpelier and Winooski, Vermont, would face a lawsuit for allowing non-citizens to vote in elections, after altering their town charters in May.
The legislation was vetoed by Republican Governor Phil Scott in June but was overridden by the Senate in a 20-10 vote, just scraping in with the two-thirds majority they needed to override the Governor’s veto.
Vermont state Senator, Brian Collamore, told Fox News in an interview, “I believe if someone wishes to be able to vote they should be a citizen,”
“The Montpelier bill allows what is defined as a legal resident of the United States to be able to vote in city elections. … If someone is here on a permanent basis, why would he or she not want to participate in the process to become a citizen?” he added.
Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement that, “Democrats are trying to dismantle the integrity of our elections. In addition to attacking widely supported safeguards like voter ID, Democrats also want foreign citizens to vote in American elections,”
“Republicans are fighting back on this far-left assault against election integrity — unlike radical Democrats, we believe that our elections should be decided solely by American citizens. This is a matter of principle and we will fight in all 50 states to ensure this remains the case,” she added.
The fact that the Democrats act like it’s not a big deal to allow noncitizens a vote, is more than a little concerning and gives a glimpse of a very bleak future indeed. If the Democrats are able to get away with it, you can bet their next proposal will be allowing illegal immigrants a vote too.
