CITIZENSHIP OPTIONAL! Hong Kong Immigrant First Non-U.S. Citizen Appointed to San Fran Election Commission

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.19.24

According to a Fox News report Kelly Wong, a woman from Hong Kong who can’t vote in U.S. elections, has been appointed to the election commission in San Francisco.

From Fox News:

Northern California public news site KQED reported Thursday that Hong Kong immigrant Kelly Wong “is believed to be the first noncitizen appointed to the commission,” after San Francisco passed a measure in 2020 removing the citizenship requirement to serve on city boards, commissions and advisory bodies.

Wong, an immigrant rights advocate who came to the U.S. from Hong Kong in 2019 to pursue a graduate degree, was sworn in at a ceremony in San Francisco City Hall.

Board of Supervisors president Aaron Peskin conducted the ceremony while “dozens of people gathered to commemorate the occasion,” the outlet reported.

Wong was unanimously voted in the by San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors. She spoke to KQED about overcoming the doubt she had to achieve the position.

“There are always voices inside my head. Like, ‘You can’t do it. You’re not competent. You’re an immigrant. This is not your country.’ That’s not true. If I can do it, you can do it,” she told the outlet.

Popular conservative meme account I Meme Therefore I Am shared a shot of Wong being sworn in last week.

“NEW: San Francisco Appoints First Noncitizen to Serve on Elections Commission. Kelly Wong who came to the U.S. in 2019 from China and isn’t legally allowed to vote will be overseeing and creating policy for the San Francisco Department of Elections. Wong is immigrant rights advocate who wants to educate other immigrants who don’t speak English about voting process. Imagine that people who don’t want to integrate by doing the least and learn the national language will be deciding on the future of an American city. Insanity.”
