You want to bet they have to show a photo ID to vote?!
From National Public Radio:
The New York City Council approved legislation that would expand voting rights to hundreds of thousands of legal noncitizens, allowing a once-disenfranchised segment of Big Apple taxpayers a chance to participate in the local democratic process.
Despite its relatively easy coast to council victory in the Democratic stronghold, the legislation will likely face legal challenges, including from Republicans, who have spearheaded efforts across the country to enact new voter restrictions.
“American citizens should decide American elections — full stop. Today’s decision in New York is the product of a radical, power-hungry Democrat Party that will stop at nothing to undermine election integrity,” Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel said in a statement, adding that the RNC is reviewing legal options.
