NYC Mayor Eric Adams Backs Law Giving Non-Citizens Voting Rights in Local Elections

New York City Democrat Mayor Eric Adams backed the law that gives non-citizens the right to vote in local elections.

The bill, “Our City, Our Vote Bill,” was passed last year by the New York City Council and became law today.

The bill will allow an estimated 800,000 visa and green card holders to vote in city elections.

Adams backed the bill during an interview with CNN host Jake Tapper.

Initially, Adams questioned the bill because it gave the right to vote for non-citizens who lived in the city for only 30 days.

But Adams backed off that concern.

Critics expressed their concerns on Twitter.

Adams also raised concerns because he hired his brother for a city post in the police department.

It looks like New York City will not change much under Adams’ management of the city.

Allowing non-citizens to vote is outrageous and it really does undermine our Democracy and makes a mockery of those who go through the time and expense of becoming a citizen.

As Tom Borelli put it during his NewsmaxTV appearance, “Meet the new boss. Same as the the old boss.”
