New York City may soon permit hundreds of thousands of noncitizens to vote in municipal elections, while Mayor Bill de Blasio and his successor, Eric Adams, feel differently about the prospect.
The bill aims to amend the city’s charter by including a new chapter with provisions for allowing green card holders and those with work authorization to register to vote and take part in citywide elections through the creation of a separate municipal voter registration. Adams supported the concept when he was campaigning for mayor earlier this year.
The article goes on to state the following:
“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.
In September, De Blasio, said there are “two problems” with the bill.
“One, I don’t believe it is legal. Our law department is very clear on this. I really believe this has to be decided at the state level, according to state law,” he said, adding that the other issue is that it undermines efforts to get people to become citizens.
A report by the New York Times explains that the bill would allow an estimated 808,000 non-citizens to vote. The Times reports:
The measure is expected to be approved on Dec. 9 by a veto-proof margin. It would allow noncitizens to vote in local elections, and would not apply to federal or state contests.
Former RNC Chair Reince Priebus tweeted, “The far-left continues to make a mockery of our nation’s democratic process. Voting in US elections should remain a right reserved for American citizens over the age of 18.”
