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

Published

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.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
