This is on Ballotpedia, received via email, so no link.

And this is why we can't have nice things. Adding 1,000,000 noncitizens to the voting rolls. What could possibly go wrong?

NYC - de Blasio, and now Eric "Nepotism" Adams are cut from the same cloth. You reap what you sow.

On Jan. 9, 2022, New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) allowed Int. 1867-2020 to become law without his signature. Int. 1867-2020 will allow lawful permanent residents and other noncitizens authorized to work in the United States to vote in municipal elections conducted on or after Jan. 9, 2023. According to Politico, this will allow nearly a million noncitizens to vote.

The New York City Council passed the legislation by a 33-14 vote on Dec. 9, 2021. Then-Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) said he would not veto the legislation at the time of passage. Adams became mayor on Jan. 1, 2022.

This legislation made New York City the largest city in the nation to authorize voting by noncitizens. Fifteen municipalities across the country allowed noncitizens to vote in local elections as of January 2022. Eleven were located in Maryland, two were located in Vermont, one was New York City, and the other was San Francisco, California.]On Jan. 9, 2022, New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) allowed Int. 1867-2020 to become law without his signature.

New York city can cock up their local city elections with non citizen votes if they want,  but they should lose the right to participate in any federal election where these non citizen's votes will have an impact on all citizens in the country
Biden is an illegitimate President.  Change my mind.

Agreed, and you know that’s where they’re going.

The only thing that will stop that is when they realize the non-citizens are voting for conservatives more than liberals THEN they’ll throw on the brakes.
