US Senator Rubio wants to block federal funding from NYC, leftist cities allow non-US citizens to vote

The New York City Council wants to give non-US citizens a say in how government works.

In turn, US Senator Marco Rubio wants to deprive the Big Apple and any other place of similar thinking, the funding comes from all American taxpayers.

“No city that allows non-US citizens to vote will receive money from the US government,” the Florida Republican tweeted on Friday. “Next week I will be submitting a bill to make that law.”

Rubio’s tweet was in response to a vote of New York City Council last week.

By a margin of 33-14, the council agreed to let non-Americans vote in local elections.

The Council, in a press release released Thursday, noted, “New York City is proud to be home to millions of working, tax-paying immigrants who are not U.S. citizens. Ky has no right to decide who represents them.”

“Under this measure, any New Yorker who is a lawful permanent resident or is authorized to work in the United States, has been a resident of New York City for at least 30 consecutive days, and meets all of the following requirements: eligible to register to vote under the Elections Act who are not citizens of the United States, will be eligible to register to vote as a ‘city voter.’

As a result, these foreign-born voters will be eligible to vote in any primary, special, general, or general election for mayor, city manager, public statement, county president or council member, or any local voting initiative.

The Washington Times, in reporting on the matter, noted, “The city will become the largest US jurisdiction to grant citizens access to the ballot box, allowing approximately 800,000 ‘Dreamers’. and green card holders participate.”

Ironically, New York is ignoring democracy while claiming to promote it.

The council’s bill passed even though a group called Americans for Citizens Vote released a poll on Thursday that found 61 percent of New York voters likely oppose voting no. citizen.

“New Yorkers oppose giving not a citizen Voting with a majority of delegates in all city boroughs,” Organization of American Citizens Elections President Christopher Arps said in a statement. “The council does not advance democracy further by ignoring the voters and emphasizing the council’s priorities.”

Vote for Americans notes that San Francisco and 11 cities in Maryland have allowed non-US citizens to vote in local elections.
