New Measure Being Considered by Boston City Council Threatens Integrity of Election System

Published

on

2018 election

Boston’s City Council is set to hold a hearing this week to consider a measure that would provide noncitizen legal residents the right to vote in municipal elections, stating the reason for doing so being to make elections in the city “more inclusive.”

Don’t you just love all those precious, left-wing buzzwords? You know, like “inclusive?”

Apparently the idea that voting be a sacred privilege reserved for citizens only is a big no-no in today’s culture. Sad times.

This new legislation would apply only to noncitizen legal residents, including visa holders, legal permanent residents, anyone with temporary protected status, and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals recipients. These immigrants would be allowed to vote only in municipal elections. Noncitizens are still barred from voting in federal elections under federal law.

The hearing was requested in January by City Council President Andrea Campbell. Campbell’s request for the hearing stated, “The purpose of our local government, including the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Advancement, is to ‘strengthen the ability of diverse, cultural, and linguistic communities to play an active role in the economic, civic, social and cultural life of the City of Boston.’”

According to a U.S. Census Bureau survey in 2015, these residents make up 28 percent of Boston’s roughly 673,000 residents. Noncitizen residents of Boston also reportedly paid $116 million in state and local taxes.

The hearing will be at 3 p.m. ET on Tuesday.

Boston isn’t the only city that’s tried something like this. College Park, Maryland debated a similar measure last summer and ended up landing a majority vote, though not a supermajority, which was needed in order for the measure to become law.

Anyone with two fully functioning brain cells can see why this is a really bad idea. Liberals never stop pushing the boundaries, always taking small baby steps toward their ultimate goals.

What starts as noncitizen legal immigrants voting soon becomes, “why can’t illegals vote?” and before you know it, thanks to this strategy, the Democratic Party’s ranks swell to ridiculous proportions, stocked full of minorities who will toss votes their direction in exchange for more free stuff.

If the people of Boston really value liberty, they will oppose this measure to the fullest.

DELUSIONAL: Rachel Maddow Starts Crying On Air After Mueller Report Vindicates Trump

No joke. She actually CRIED on air!

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow is everything that’s wrong with America. She doesn’t understand what makes the United States great, and she’s ignorant when it comes to learning her history. After Special Counsel Robert Mueller turned in his final Russia collusion report to Attorney General Bill Barr, Maddow actually cried on live TV. That’s not hyperbole. She actually cried.

She’s now calling upon Congress to keep digging for links to Russia collusion, regardless of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s findings. From Daily Wire: Failed 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton doesn’t want Congress to give up on pursuing evidence of President Donald Trump colluding with Russian officials to impact the 2016 elections, even if Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report comes up empty. In a podcast with former Daily Beast chief Tina Brown recorded earlier this week, Clinton was clear in delivering her marching orders to the Democratic Congress: keep digging. “There is enough grounds in what has already been made public for the government, for Congress in particular, to be doing more with it,” Clinton said. “And I’m pleased that under Speaker Pelosi, the Democrats are beginning to hold hearings and try to connect some of these dots.” Why would Donald Trump’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, seemingly come from out of nowhere to blindside the president? Lynne Patton, who works under Ben Carson at the Department of Housing and Urban Development, knows the answer. In short, it involved a lengthy prison sentence – but not for Cohen. Patton wrote in a Facebook post: What many of you may not be aware of is the fact that I can personally confirm that the ONLY…

BOMBSHELL: Ilhan Omar Holds Secret Fundraisers With Islamic Groups Tied to Terror (Details)

Kind of a big friggin’ deal, isn’t it?

Well, here’s something else that won’t endear Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar (MN) with conservatives. Apparently, Omar has been holding secret fundraisers with Islamic groups that are tied to terror. Makes you wonder, was Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro right when she said Omar wasn’t “America first?” Food for thought, at the very least. Check it out… From Free Beacon: Democratic freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) has been holding a series of secret fundraisers with groups that have been tied to the support of terrorism, appearances that have been closed to the press and hidden from public view. The content of these speeches, given to predominately Muslim audiences, remains unknown, prompting some of Omar’s critics to express concern about the type of rhetoric she is using before these paying audiences, particularly in light of the lawmaker’s repeated use of anti-Semitic tropes in public. Omar recently spoke in Florida at a private event hosted by Islamic Relief, a charity organization long said to have deep ties to groups that advocate terrorism against Israel. Over the weekend, she will appear at another private event in California that is hosted by CAIR-CA PAC, a political action committee affiliated with the Council on American Islamic Relations, or CAIR a group that was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in a massive terror-funding incident. Pirro saw her show canceled for two consecutive Saturday nights after comments she made about freshman Democrat Omar. Many millions of Americans, including President Trump, were not pleased. In fact, it looks like Pirro might’ve been suspended. Check out the pictures below showing Fox News’s lineup. Notice there’s nothing about Pirro on Saturday, 3/23? About the suspension: —@brianstelter reports, per a source, that Fox News suspended @JudgeJeanine for two weeks following her comments on @IlhanMN. (Hence why she wasn’t on air…
