New York City’s Democrat-dominated City Council passed a law late last year that would allow more than one million non-citizens to vote in local elections —but a New York Judge isbringing the gavel down.
According to The Daily Wire, “[t]he City Council passed the law by a 33-14 vote on December 9, 2021. It said noncitizens who have lived in the city for at least 30 days and are legal permanent residents, including green card holders, DREAMERS, and residents with work permits, could vote in city elections, including the mayor, public advocate, borough president, and city council.”
State Supreme Court Judge Ralph Prozio says not so fast.
“There is no statutory ability for the City of New York to issue inconsistent laws permitting non-citizens to vote and exceed the authority granted to it by the New York State Constitution,” Porzio ruled. “Though voting is a right that so many citizens take for granted, the City of New York cannot ‘obviate’ the restrictions imposed by the Constitution.”
RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel called the ruling a “huge victory” on Twitter.
“Today, a New York City court struck down the Democrats’ radical scheme that would allow over 800,000 non-citizens to vote in NYC elections. This ruling is a huge victory for election integrity and the rule of law: American elections should be decided by American citizens. (1/2)”
“The RNC is proud to head a broad coalition in successfully challenging this unconstitutional scheme and will continue to lead the effort across the country to ensure only citizens can vote in America’s elections. (2/2)”
