Democrats have moved to the political fringes.
Immigration is near the top of issues where the Democrats have completely lost the plot.
And New York City’s Mayor made the border crisis far worse by signing one law into effect.
Freshly minted New York City Mayor Eric Adams has already shown that he is no moderate.
Adams was supposed to be the reasonable response to outgoing communist Mayor Bill de Blasio.
Adams, a former police officer, was supposed to bring common sense back to policing and the Democrat Party more broadly.
But Adams already said he would keep de Blasio’s draconian COVID vaccine mandates in place.
Now Adams signed a bill that will allow noncitizens to vote in municipal elections.
That means 800,000 new voters will be able to decide who is Mayor, Council Member, Borough President, et al.
Adams said in a statement, “I believe that New Yorkers should have a say in their government, which is why I have and will continue to support this important legislation . . . While I initially had some concerns about one aspect of the bill, I had a productive dialogue with my colleagues in government that put those concerns at ease. I believe allowing the legislation to be enacted is by far the best choice, and look forward to bringing millions more into the democratic process.”
According to the law, legal noncitizens who have established residence for a mere 30 days are allowed to participate.
First, it’s absurd that noncitizens get to determine the laws for citizens.
Leftists call that democratic, but it’s actually anti-democratic.
Citizens should be the ones determining laws for the citizenry.
Also, there is no limiting principle to expanding the franchise to noncitizens.
Some jurisdictions already allow illegal aliens to vote in school board elections.
It’s not a large leap to allowing illegal aliens to vote in local and federal elections.
Also, voter fraud already occurs, and this will only encourage more.
Investigative journalists for Project Veritas captured poll workers telling undercover reporters posing as noncitizens that they could go ahead and vote in federal elections.
Noncitizens voting in elections also serves as another magnet for people attempting to come to America illegally.
Democrat politicians promise them all sorts of benefits like free healthcare, education, and good-paying jobs.
Now they’re telling them that they can vote.
Democrats say they don’t believe in open borders, but all of their actions say the opposite.
