Approximately 808,000 “non-citizens” could vote in future New York City elections, if the City Council welcomes them to accomplish that, as early as December. These potential new members of the citizens would come with inexperienced card holders and people with sure work permits. 

This is a rotten idea. However, love or hate it, everybody at the very least ought to debate this idea with most precision. 

These 808,000 potential new voters usually are not non-citizens. The laptop on which I write these phrases is a non-citizen. So is the medium by way of which you might be studying them proper now. 


Rather than non-citizens, these individuals are foreign citizens. While they don’t seem to be American citizens, they continue to be citizens of the foreign nations from whence they got here – Mexico, Haiti, Russia, Singapore, New Zealand, and dozens extra. 

Every human is a citizen of some nation. A human non-citizen is not a factor. 

So, professional or con, all discussions of this brainstorm ought to mirror what’s at stake:

The New York City Council goals to dilute the native votes of American citizens by extending the franchise to 808,000 foreign citizens. This would come with letting roughly 117,500 citizens of communist China choose the mayors, City Council members, district attorneys, and different officers of America’s most-populous municipality.  

There actually is no backside to the depravity and evil of the Democrat Party, most of whose native members cheer this proposal. But astonishingly, and to his uncommon credit score, Gotham’s far-Left Mayor Bill de Blasio, is not amongst them.

Today’s madcap left-wing fantasy is tomorrow’s statute.  

“I do have reservations,” de Blasio stated on Tuesday. “So, I understand if folks say, ‘Hey, I’m somewhere on the path toward citizenship.’ But I also have feelings about citizenship and the value of citizenship and wanting to encourage people to become citizens, fully.” De Blasio additionally argues that this matter ought to be determined by the state legislature, not the City Council. A left-wing idea have to be really wretched not to get pleasure from de Blasio’s help.

Conversely, New York’s mayor-elect, Eric Adams, backs giving foreign citizens the vote. This place T-bones at 100 mph into the widespread view that Adams is a moderate-to-conservative Democrat. Does this exception show the rule or is it an ominous preview of horrors to come? As a sure former president loves to say: We’ll see what occurs.

This wacky idea extends past Gotham. Left-wing politicians already empowered foreign citizens to vote for San Francisco college board and in native races in two Vermont cities and 11 Maryland communities. 

And if foreigners could vote for varsity board and sheriff, why not state senator and governor?
