It’s official. The New York City Council passed the bill allowing an estimated 800,000 noncitizens to vote in municipal elections. The vote was 33 to 14, with two abstentions. Unless Mayor Bill de Blasio vetoes the bill, it will become law.

Mayor de Blasio has previously stated he had no plans to veto the bill. Republicans have threatened to challenge the bill, saying it is unconstitutional. Even a potential legal challenge, de Blasio has already warned is unlikely to survive.

National Review reports:

The measure would allow non-citizens to vote for mayor, City Council members, and other municipal officeholders but would not allow them to vote in federal elections, such as for president or members of Congress, or in state elections that elect the governor, judges, and legislators.

The move will allow noncitizens who have been lawful permanent residents of the city for at least 30 days, as well as those authorized to work in the U.S. and DACA recipients, to vote in municipal elections.

If the measure becomes law, the Board of Elections would be tasked with outlining an implementation plan by January. That plan would be required to include voter-registration rules and provisions to create separate ballots for municipal races to safeguard federal and state elections.

New York City would join a dozen communities across the U.S. that allow noncitizens to vote in local elections, including eleven towns in Maryland and two in Vermont, the Associated Press reported.

    Why bother to have a country or citizenship at all, if this is what these idiots are going to do?

    As a matter of fact, why don’t they just let people in Russia vote!?? At least then they would be correct when they accused the Russians of interfering in our elections!!!

      This subject is infuriating the only difference will be, now when they vote it’ll be legal. They’ve always voted and they DO vote in presidential elections too! That’s the only reason why California is a blue state.
      Without them and dead voters AND double voters Democrats would NEVER get elected.
      LMAO NOT‼️

Don Lemon loses it on Senators Manchin, Sinema for holding up voting bill: ‘that’s bull***’

CNN’s Don Lemon cursed out those “moderates” such as Senators Joe Manchin  (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) “who are blocking people’s access to the voting booth, they want to use Dr. King conveniently. They’re the biggest hypocrites on the planet.”

“If Sinema and Manchin really want to honor the legacy of Dr. King and all the people who fought for civil rights and voting rights in this country, what they would do is to carve out for voting rights with the filibuster” he continued.

“But for some reason they are stuck with these rules that are backwards…The filibuster has been used to block civil rights legislation forever and so we need to stop that. We evolved. Just because there is a rule doesn’t mean that that rule can’t change. The Constitution is amended. So it’s time to amend the rules. And fight and, and protect the most sacred right that we have as Americans, and that is the right to vote.”

Lemon then quotes Dr. Martin Luther King about a “white moderate, who is more devoted to ‘order’ than to justice….who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a ‘more convenient season.”

That sounds like the moderates, says Lemon, referring to Senators Manchin and Sinema. “And you’re supposed to be a Democrat who espouses to the ideals of Dr. King. That’s bull***t that’s B.S.”
