Report: New York City may allow amnestied illegal immigrants to vote
Breitbart ^ | 9 May 2013 | Matthew Boyle

Posted on 05/11/2013 12:57:02 PM PDT by SeekAndFind

New York City may soon allow non-citizens, including illegal immigrants who would be granted amnesty if the Senate's immigration reform bill passes Congress, to vote in elections.

According to Talking Points Memo, the New York City Council is currently considering a proposal that would allow non-citizens to vote in local elections. Even though Mayor Michael Bloomberg reportedly opposes the proposal, TPM reports that the New York City Council “appears to have a veto-proof majority” so it could make the proposal law without Bloomberg’s support.

Queens College professor Ron Hayduk, a supporter of the proposal who helped craft it, told TPM that this proposal is likely to influence the national immigration debate, too, as pro-amnesty factions are likely to support it.

“It would send a big message to the rest of the country and embolden campaigns which are ongoing in other places like San Francisco, and Portland, Maine, and Washington, D.C., and other places,” Hayduk said. “It would certainly be viewed favorably by immigrants’ rights advocates and be seen by other policy makers as another level of discussion about the whole business of the role of immigrants in the United States.”

If the Senate immigration bill passes Congress and the New York City Council passes its proposal, illegal immigrants in the city would likely be allowed to vote because the immigration reform bill makes illegal immigrants legal almost immediately upon passage.

Protecting American citizens’ votes is a major concern of many in this debate. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) made “secure the vote” one of his top three priorities in any immigration package.

I expect this will have the opposite effect on pending legislation that Herr Doktor Professor Haydek says.....

I’M SHOCKED! /s Isn’t that why the Dems are pushing amnesty and the reason why 0bama is allowing illegal aliens to storm across our borders as we speak?

Let the Catholic Church go full-turbo now on getting Latino Catholics back into the church. Let’s see how fast the locals jump to erase this measure. The Catholic Church is the wildcard in this whole thing...if they’d just recruit and bring young Latino priests into the inner city area....they’d change the whole dynamic.

Dems foster voter fraud in elections
Dems want illegals to vote in elections

Anyone see a pattern here?

There are an awful lot of leftist Catholics in the Americas. Hell, nearly all of the Catholics I know voted for 0bama. Twice. I know that's merely anecdotal, and maybe it's different in Virginia, but out here in my undisclosed locale the Catholic vote is a very dependable Democrat vote. I don't think this will end the way you are hoping.

57% of ALL American Catholics (and any illegals that were able to vote) voted for obama in 2012. The blaze has it archived and you can find it with Bing.

The Dems have reliably “Catholic” states of the northeast, west coast, and upper midwest for decades.

As a Catholic I am ashamed of it; Rome needs to replace those leaders who can’t get the point across to their flocks that they are abetting the murder of children with their votes.

Exit polls had it at 50% Obama and 48% Romney among self-identified Catholic voters.
Jewish voters were 69% Obama and 30% Romney while Protestants were 42% Obama and 57% Romney.

(he probably does, although his BILLIONS of amnesty promotional radio commercials say otherwise—just proves he’s learned to lie to Americans like the rest of them.)

As someone who voted in NYC for about 27 years, I can tell you they don’t need to throw out any ballots. When you vote at your local high school, the floor is littered with discarded ballots - lost by the old biddies who have no control or interest in voting rights. When they lost my registration form one year, I had to fill out an absentee form. I can still remember the bored woman tossing it to the side (to join all the other litter).

When you cast your vote for the most conservative candidate and your neighbors vote in the liberal Dem trash, there isn't much you can do. When both your Senators are liberal garbage (Schumer & Gillibrand) and a decent Republican Congressman (Turner) was gerrymandered out of the district, you effectively have taxation without representation.

I was disgusted by a recent visit to a local high school, which had 3 posters on the wall opposite the elevator, no doubt the work of the Hispanic principal. One was a poster with a picture of Che Guevara with some quote of his, one was a poster telling the reader that "Columbus did not discover America--he INVADED America" and the third was some mushy homily about "we all share the earth together, blah, blah, blah."

I was disgusted to read the latest edition of the teachers' newspaper, telling us to vote for the endorsed candidates--every one of them had a "D" by their name. Thanks, UFT. You have provided me a valuable voting guide. All I have to do is vote for whoever's running against your endorsees.

Where you have a certifiable maniac for a mayor who is proud of NYC's status as a sanctuary city, is it any surprise that the City council could come up with allowing illegal criminals who have no respect for our laws to vote for politicians who make those laws? How sick is this?

One of the things that non-New York City freepers don’t understand is how trapped you can get in these Democratic ghettos. My husband and I care for my elderly mother who simply can’t leave the Northeast. So, we stay, vote for the most conservative candidates (or sit the elections out) and wait for the day of the Great Escape.

Fox News’ exit poll data:
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/elections/2012-exit-poll

I heard on CSPAN on Friday that the U.S. has 800,000 Latinos turning age 18 every year. Latinos aged 18 to 24 went for Barry Soetoro 74% to 23% for Mitt Romney.

Regardless... More Catholics voted for obama than did not. I also will go with Beck over fox news. I no longer trust fox (or any media beyond Levin, Rush and Beck) and the reason we should all question fox will come to light soon. fox is not the friend of any Conservative... rove and the Bush family yes... but not a friend of the Conservative American.
