New York City Giving Non-Citizens the Right to Vote – Opinion

New York City attempted Rank Choice voting, a new progressive system of voting for its mayoral primary elections. According to Ballotpedia:

“A ranked-choice voting system is an electoral system in which voters rank candidates by preference on their ballots. If a candidate wins a majority of first-preference votes, he or she is declared the winner.”

It sounds fair and equitable, doesn’t it? Although it may have been fair, rank-choice voting caused a delay of over two weeks in determining who won the Democratic primary election for mayor. Eric Adams, former Brooklyn Borough President was finally declared the winner of July 7.

Originaly, the election took place on June 22. Adams felt upset at the fact that an easy task of holding an election, then counting votes was turned into an election mirroring what might be found in a third-world banana republic. After days of delay, he said that he was satisfied with his decision. “Every new barrier you put in place, you’re going to lose voters in the process… I knew that was going to be a problem and it turned out to be a problem.”

Well, the New York City Council is scheduled to vote on December 9th to remove a barrier to voting….for non-citizens! Bill 1867, introduced by council member Ydanis Rodriguez, would allow green card holders — and those with work authorizations in the United States to vote in New York City elections only. They would be excluded from voting in state and federal elections — for now.

This is a redundancy situation, as a Green Card permits an immigrant legal to work in this country. “Those with work authorizations” probably pertains to the millions of illegal immigrants and so-called “Dreamers” the Biden Administration and the Democrats want to legalize with just the stroke of a pen in their $2 trillion budget reconciliation scheme. A reconciliation program also contains a provision that will allow illegal immigrants to receive a child tax credit at yearly cost of $10.5 million.

Rodriguez, Councilman, stated last week: “New York City will be making history. After getting the right to vote in local elections as a result of this bill, there is a high probability that immigrants would become even more motivated to become citizens and vote in federal elections.”

Councilman, I’m sorry, it seems you are a bit behind the times. It should be the first thing they do. Also, having the ability to vote is an advantage. She went on: “Let’s be clear, after passing this bill, other municipalities will follow in New York City’s footsteps and realize that if they have immigrant residents who pay their taxes and contribute to the city, they should have the right to vote in their local elections.”

Reporters were informed by the NYC Council President that he anticipated the bill passing easily. “have the votes.”This law, which will allow over 800,000. green card holders to exercise their right of vote in New York City, (noncitizens), is expected to pass. The bill should pass. However, the Staten Island Borough President-elect Vito Folsella has promised to pursue legal action in the event that the bill fails. “One of the great privileges of being a citizen is the right to vote and as borough president, I will initiate legal action to preserve the sanctity of the vote”.

This is the loophole that progressives use to let non-citizens vote. It is obvious that progressives will soon advocate for non-citizens voting in federal and state elections.
