New York City has taken a huge step towards vindicating every intelligent political observer that has made such an argument by allowing over 800,000 non-citizens to vote in local elections.
“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,” Adams said in a statement on Saturday.
Mayor Adams said that while I “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,” he added.
Axios reported on the development, while soft-peddling the fact that Adams had lied during his campaign by posing as a “moderate.”
“Adams initially expressed concern over the legislation, which the City Council approved a month ago, but the Democratic governor ultimately supported the measure and allowed his 30-day time limit to veto the bill to expire, according to AP,” Axios reported. “If the implementation is not curtailed by a judge, New York City will become the first major city in the country to extend voting rights to noncitizens, per AP.”
What has long-lived as a conspiracy theory allegedly implemented by right-wing pundits that the Democratic Party has pursued lawless and reckless policies to benefit from immigration policies, is now a fact. New York City just proved it.
