    SNEAD: A Disturbing Movement Is Picking Up Steam On The Left — Letting Noncitizens Vote

    Published on

    The right to vote has always been considered one of the benefits of being an American citizen, but not much longer. Left-wing groups are pushing hard for the right to vote for non-citizens, and Washington, D.C. has recently joined the fight.

    A law allowing anybody to vote in municipal elections, irrespective of citizenship or immigration status, as long as they have resided in the city for at least 30 days, has advanced in the D.C. City Council.

    Even the normally liberal Washington Post editorial staff referred to the plan as “radical” because it is so harsh.

    The Local Resident Voting Rights Amendment Act of 2022 will grant the right to vote in local elections to an estimated 50,000 noncitizen residents, including those who are present illegally, if Mayor Muriel Bowser of Washington, D.C., approves it.

    That’s not all, though. Nothing in the law “to prevent employees at embassies of governments that are openly hostile to the United States from casting ballots. Or foreign students who are studying abroad in Washington for a semester.”.   So there you have it: the nation’s capital is prepared to distribute ballots to individuals who are opposed to the interests of the country.

    Why is the district acting so rashly? politics only.

    The Left wants to radically alter who can vote in order to change the political climate of the nation. Even The Washington Post acknowledges that “progressives hope that reshaping the electorate will allow them to reshape local politics, prodding [D.C.] further to the left on issues such as rent control and spending on social programs.”

    The left hasn’t only recognized how much power can be obtained by altering the electorate in D.C. Left-wing campaigners around the nation are seeking to give the vote to imprisoned felons, minors, and noncitizens—all groups they believe to be more likely to be liberal—under the euphemistic banner of “expanding democracy.” After all, why allow the populace to pick their government when the populace can be picked by the government?

    And there are a lot of options. Consider that in the two years following President Joe Biden’s election, more than 5 million illegal immigrants had entered the country. Enabling migrants to vote in local elections creates a strong perverse incentive for politicians to justify, or even demand, a prolonged humanitarian catastrophe on the border as long as it provides a consistent flow of migrant voters ready to support a far-left agenda.

    The obvious response from the left when they are accused of supporting open borders in order to attract more voters is that it is forbidden for any foreign national to cast a ballot in a federal election. True, but elections for the White House or Congress are far from the only ones that are significant.

    Americans have seen first hand the great damage that can be done when the woke left captures school boards and town councils. As the old saying goes, all politics is local.

    At least 15 municipalities nationally have enfranchised noncitizens to vote in local races, including major cities like San Francisco and New York. The Big Apple’s law is virtually identical to Washington’s pending measure: anyone in the city for 30 days can vote, including illegal aliens.

    That measure was challenged in court, and earlier this year a New York Supreme Court judge struck it down for violating the state constitution. Had it gone into effect, 800,000 noncitizens would have been handed the vote in New York City. CONTINUE READING…
