New York City could soon allow more than 800,000 non-citizens to vote in citywide elections
Democrats are ruthless in their bid to maintain power at all costs, even if it destroys the integrity of our nation and its founding principles, most of which they don't believe in anyway.
New York state and New York City are cases in point: There, Democrats command a supermajority and they wield their power in authoritarian ways because that is the nature of their politics, as evidenced by economically stifling pandemic lockdowns, unconstitutional vaccine mandates, and now, a new executive order from Gov. Kathy Hochul that declared a 'state of emergency' over the COVID-19 omicron variant even though there has been no sign of it in the state yet.
And here's another way Democrats wield permanent power: By changing the rules of the electoral process in order to ensure victory, as the Big Apple is poised to do.
New York City Marxists are preparing to pass legislation that will enable more than 800,000 people who are living in the city but who are not citizens to vote in local elections
, as reported by Conservative Brief and other outlets:
The “Our City, Our Vote” legislation would allow migrants who hold green cards, those who maintain a legal work status in the United States, and DACA recipients to be granted special voter registration forms to vote in local elections.
“The legislation calls for training poll workers and community education campaigns to ensure every voter receives the correct ballot,” The New York Times added
City Councilman Ydanis Rodriguez told the newspaper the legislation is very good for Democrats because they can advance their political talking points claim that “voting rights are being attacked.”
“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,” he said.
Conservative Brief noted further that Republicans around the country are launching legal battles against Democrat-led legislation granting non-citizens voting rights, which essentially cancel out the votes of citizens:
In October, the Republican National Committee announced it would sue Montpelier and Winooski, Vermont, for altering their town charters to accommodate municipal voting by noncitizens.
“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," said Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel.
"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.
Fox News went on to report
The case centers around the Vermont cities of Montpelier and Winooski, who in May had changes to their charters approved by the state’s Senate that allowed non-citizens to vote in their municipal elections. ...
Republican Gov. Phil Scott vetoed the legislation in June, citing “inconsistency in election policy” across the state.
But the governor’s veto was overridden by the Senate in a 20-10 vote, with Democrats getting just enough votes to clear the two-thirds majority needed for a veto override.
“I believe if someone wishes to be able to vote they should be a citizen,” Vermont state Sen. Brian Collamore told Fox News.
“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.
Democrats will move heaven and earth in order to perpetuate their own power, even at the risk of destroying the country's social fabric
and institutions. Republicans need to step up their game if they hope to put America back on the right path.
