This is unbelievable.
In a stunning turn of events, New York City’s new Mayor Eric Adams is showing American just how far-left he truly is and now says he plans to fully support newly passed legislation to allow non-citizens to vote in their local elections.
According to Yahoo, Mayor Adams said in a statement, “I believe that New Yorkers should have a say in their government, which is why I have and will continue to support this important legislation. While I initially had some concerns about one aspect of the bill, I had a productive dialogue with my colleagues in government that put those concerns at ease. I believe allowing the legislation to be enacted is by far the best choice, and look forward to bringing millions more into the democratic process.”
From the very moment this bill was proposed, New York Republicans had immediately spoken out against the decision. Many even claimed that Democrats would never go as far as giving people who are not American citizens the right to vote and it was just “all talk.” Sadly, it appears they were wrong and now they are planning to fight back.
The controversial bill is called “Our city, our vote” and was approved by the city council of December of last year.
This move will allow around 800,000 non-Americans to vote in local New York elections and is an extremely controversial decision.
Former NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio expressed some concerns about the bill before he left office but sadly didn’t do anything about it before leaving.
