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 Bloombergs 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.

They are cnn... evil liars all. I remember 2004... I remember their reporting the exit polling... you know... the crap that they (along with all cooperating media outlets) made up to actually effect the election in Florida.
Fox News’ exit poll data:
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.
Well, I just linked to the Fox News exit poll data for you.
THAT is why the rats want them to vote.
My point is that a stronger Republican candidate than Mitt Romney might well have won the Catholic vote for the Republicans for the first time in quite a while.
I agree with you but Catholics need to get their minds right. ALL Christians do. satan rules the dim party and to vote dim is to vote for satan’s agenda.
BTW, have a great day with your family.
And the same to you!
NYC is “it” for observant Jews. In my Queens neighborhood, I have access to umpteen synagogues of every flavor, several kosher pizza parlors, numerous other kosher restaurants (Japanese, Chinese, Mexican, Hungarian, Sephardic, Israeli, etc.), the P.O., the public library, hardware stores, clothing stores which sell modest clothing, pharmacies, optometrists, nail salons, you name it—all within walking distance. It’s just too bad that the politicians are so scummy. Kind of spoils the rest of the good parts.
NYC can be a wonderful place. Truly. I should know. Born and raised there. In there at least once to twice a week. I miss my adorable little apartment in Murray Hill. But while we’ve always had scummy pols, this new group, including our insane mayor, is beyond repair.
Ah, you be a Manhattanite. Not me. No way. But the idyllic life in Queens is ruined by the current crop of liberal politician criminals. Just look at the current list of how many have been indicted just in the last couple of weeks! Gillibrand alone is despicable because she personally railroaded through a bill last April authorizing the USDA to enter Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge, a federal preserve, to kill every last Canada goose there. So the fuzzy wuzzy goslings my students loved were, a couple of months later, rounded up with their parents during the no-flying June/July molt period and gassed. 850 geese were murdered in a cruel way. Her justification was that Canada goose feathers were found in Sully Sullenberger’s bird strike, but DNA proved it was from a migrating goose, not the resident NYC geese. She is a typical liberal ignorant b__tch.
My representative was Carolyn Maloney who distinguished herself - not - by pompously and stupidly defending Hillary during the Benghazi hearing. And that it one uuuuugly dame.
