NYC May Allow 80,000 Noncitizens to Vote

New York City is on the verge of allowing hundreds of thousands of noncitizens to vote in municipal elections. However, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio and incoming mayor Eric Adams disagree on the passage of the bill.

The proposed bill would allow green card holders and those with work authorization to register to vote and take part in citywide elections through the creation of a separate voter registration. Adams has supported the bill’s passage while Mayor de Blasio has been more hesitant.

Fox News reports:

“We cannot be a beacon to the world and continue to attract the global talent, energy and entrepreneurship that has allowed our city to thrive for centuries if we do not give immigrants a vote in how this city is run and what our priorities are for the future,” Adams said in February, according to the New York Daily News.

De Blasio, meanwhile, said on “The Brian Lehrer Show” in September that there are “two problems” with the bill.

“One, I don’t believe it is legal. Our law department is very clear on this,” the mayor said. “I really believe this has to be decided at the state level, according to state law.”

The other issue, he said, is that it undermines efforts to get people to become citizens.

Legal immigrant come here to leave their country because they feel like we give them a chance to thrive. They have no right to change what drew them here. If they don’t like our country, go back to theur country.

They’ll vote for whoever gives them free stuff! Look at all the blacks who vote Democrat….the Democrats were the slave owners; party of of the KKK, Jim Crow, George Wallace & segregation, lynching (of blacks who voted Republican) and ‘racial purity’ laws…why would any African-American ever vote for a Democrat? Greed… What’s true of low-information citizens is doubly-true of foreigners with no loyalty to this country….yeah, they’ll happily sell us all into communist slavery…

Lets tell Ilian Omar that. She hates this country, laws and way of life, wants to defund police and hates Jews. Why are people like that allowed into our government? Any candidate for office in our government, at ANY level, should be required to pass a patriot test and loyalty to our Constitution.

Why would they vote? They don’t belong here. It takes 5 to 10 yrs for that priveleg
you are giving jobs and communism the upper hand. Most dacas have been here long enough to be citizens and very few bother.

you ask why would they vote! that hasn’t stopped the left from doing illegal things, drive without a license, vote, etc. the question we should be asking is why should we Americans be lawful.

Wow, I had hope that the new mayor might bring some sanity to New York. Looks like he has some views that are farther to the left than even DeBlasio. Not good.

People have come to New York and America for centuries without having to be enticed with the vote. Besides, it probably would be unlawful and if I were a voter, why would I want my vote diluted.

Will these votes count in national elections? If so, I feel that states such as Louisiana will have our voting rights deleted by sheer numbers. Doesn’t the Constitution protect us? Is the Electoral College also headed for destruction? If all this happens, can our state secede or at least quit paying federal income taxes???

In State and local elections they can do anything they want, but federal elections are subject to a higher standard. I can see why democrats would want illegals to vote. They feel a kinship with anything illegal.

This is disgusting! I’m formerly from NY and if this is the only way to make sure a democrap gets into office, they have a lot of problems. How dare they even consider giving the right to vote to NON-US CITIZENS. I do NOT care what their status is, the bottom line is they are NOT US CITIZENS!!! How dare NY even consider this!!!! Cheaters, the Democraps are ALL CHEATERS!!!! LIARS AND CHEATERS!!!!!

Has anyone read the constitution lately. US Citizens are the only people who should be voting. What’s wrong with these people,rule of law, immigration law, the need to maintain our sovereignty ad a nation. The city I grew up in and loved has been turned into a cesspool for criminality, distinction, lawless society. It needs new leadership the not only love New York, but this country. Mayor Guliani
And Ray Kelly. Tough laws and good cops, and honest politicians (if that’s even possible)!!!!!

We lost the sovereignty of our republic, which millions suffered injury or died to protect by the stoke of a pen by a party of leftest lunatics. They nullified federal immigration law which is a defiant act of treason. They rigged the 2020 election and prevented any federal investigations after 4 years of federal investigation on Trump. Soon will green card holders vote, what is next allow them as planned 8 million armies of undocumented here on relief to vote for our already democratic illegal masters? Think about it you lost freedom of speech, freedom to protest if conservative, freedom of fair elections, freeedom to pick your own leaders, to a party that Riggs elections to pick our leaders for us. We do not want socialist, yet they are going to shove it up our fannies, like their illegal immigrant policies to over whelm us with illegals to be quickly made citizens, so the evil who enslaved us with 2020 rigged elections, can rule a once free now enslaved people forever. They divide us as a people by accusations of racism, to create the racial divide. Never in our history has such pure evil controlled our government, our news, and taken away out most treasured basic freedoms such as speech, freedom of movement, fair elections, the right to elect our own leaders, in a fair election. Daily, they commit endless acts of treason against us, and on purpose they feed the fires of once ended racial hated amongst us. The democratic global communist party, our new illegal communist masters, who work tirelessly to enslave us, and use forced Marxist indoctrination camps upon defenseless children pure evil scum our illegal government.

I can’t believe that someone is willing to propose allowing non-citizens the privilege to vote. It is illegal, and just look at what you are causing-allowing people to vote for people/ topics that may not be beneficial to citizen Americans. FOLLOW THE RULES TO BECOME A CITIZEN!! I am so happy that I do not live in New York.

What, do you need more democratic votes after the last election that upset some of the “key” regions?

WOW — I never throught I would agree with anything deblasio but I have to this time. I’m sure adams must be a democrap because it seems like ny city people are too ignorant to vote someone in who will help the city instead of running it deeper into the sewer. This has to be “ILLEGAL” but in true democrap fashion — let’s do it anyhow we need the votes even if they don’t have a clue who or what they are voting for. I’m sure the democrap party members will be more than happy to fill out the ballots for them — judging from past elections — they are good at falsifying ballots.
