    U.S. city makes 'outrageous' decision to let illegals vote (ALIPAC)

    U.S. city makes 'outrageous' decision to let illegals vote
    Some predict trend of non-citizen voting is about to spread like 'cancer'

    Leo Hohmann is a news editor for WND. He has been a reporter and editor at several suburban newspapers in the Atlanta and Charlotte, North Carolina, areas and also served as managing editor of Triangle Business Journal in Raleigh, North Carolina. His latest book is "Stealth Invasion: Muslim Conquest Through Immigration And Resettlement Jihad."



    Non-citizens in New York City were given the right to vote on issues related to education in 2002, as they have recently in San Francisco and Chicago. Eleven cities in Maryland now grant the right to vote to non-citizens in municipal elections.

    The City Council for College Park, home to 30,000 residents and 3,600 foreign students at the University of Maryland, voted 4-3 Tuesday night to allow non-citizens to vote in local elections.
    And not only non-citizens who are in the country on student visas or green cards, but even those who are here illegally will be granted the right to vote in College Park starting in 2019.
    It’s a concept that border hawks say may make conservatives recoil, but they’d better get used to it because it’s front and center on the agenda of open-borders globalists.
    In fact, granting more “inclusive” rights to migrants is a central goal of the United Nations Agenda 2030 document embraced by the United States and more than 100 other countries in September 2015. It’s also part of the U.N.’s New Urban Agenda, which focuses on implementing the 2030 agenda through cities rather than nations.
    College Park Mayor Patrick Wojahn, who broke the tie Tuesday on the city council with his vote, said he hoped delaying the vote by a month would bring less attention to the matter. But the council chamber was jam-packed with citizens holding signs opposing the measure.
    At least 24 people stood up to speak either for or against the controversial policy during a four-hour meeting Tuesday.
    One woman was shown on local TV speaking angrily in favor of giving illegals the vote, lecturing the council members that the future of civil rights for LGBTs could be decided in a referendum they could not even vote on.

    Some in favor of the proposal argued it would make the city “more inclusive.” Others called it a violation of the U.S. Constitution and a method of undermining the sovereign integrity of the United States.
    A majority of the comments posted to the city’s website were overwhelmingly opposed to the measure.
    Immigrants are still prohibited from voting in federal elections, such as for Congress and the president, and in statewide elections such as gubernatorial races.
    “These are folks who have a significant stake in our community, and who rely on the facilities in our city,” College Park City Councilwoman Christine Nagle, who co-sponsored the measure, said. “To me, it just made sense.”
    Roughly 21 percent of the town’s 30,000 residents are foreign-born.
    Favorite tactic of totalitarians throughout history
    Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies for the Washington, D.C.-based Center for Immigration Studies, sees the move as a dangerous ploy to cancel out the votes of citizens.

    “It is outrageous. Voting is a right, a privilege and a duty for citizens. It’s the foundation of our republic,” Vaughan said. “If non-citizens can vote, even if in local elections only, what good is citizenship? What if the city of College Park should begin considering policies in which the interests of citizens and non-citizens diverge? This is a direct degradation of the rights of citizens.”

    The ploy is an old trick used by despots the world over, she said.
    Recep Tayyip Erdogan, president of Turkey, tried it recently in his country.

    “Seeing his popularity waning, Erdogan suggested allowing the hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees in Turkey to have the vote, hopefully creating a new base of support for him to replace his lost support from the citizens of Turkey,” Vaughan said. “This is what totalitarians do – when the people don’t like them, they find an alternative people.”

    College Park becomes the 11th city in Maryland to allow immigrants to be participate in local elections.


    Spreading like a ‘cancer’ across U.S.


    William Gheen, president and founder of Americans for Legal Immigration, said he expects the policy of non-citizen voting to spread like a “cancer” throughout the U.S., since most cities are run by Democrats and open-borders Republicans posing as conservatives. If they think they can get away with it, they will try it, Gheen said.


    “Basically, the actions of the College Park council reinforce what we see across the country, which is a plan for illegal immigrants and non-citizens to eventually vote and give Democrat socialists permanent control of all U.S. elections,” Gheen told WND.


    “DACA, the DREAM Act and so-called comprehensive immigration reform/amnesty legislation in Washington are all part of the same plan to render conservative Christians, Republicans, Trump supporters and merely non-socialists and the borders of the United States permanently obsolete,” Gheen added. “That’s why we’ve been sounding the alarm about the illegal immigrants and non-citizens of many cities, where socialist supremacists already have a high level of control.


    “America is really crossing a point of no return right now,” he said. “The numbers are moving into their favor. If they continue to succeed with their influence over Democrats, Republicans and President Trump, then it’s going to be one permanent, unstoppable, socialist nightmare.”


    Citizens urged to sue cities that legalize non-citizen voting
    Gheen urges citizens to sue the city of College Park and any other city that tries to get away with this.


    “It is definitely part of a national trend,” Gheen said. “We’ve seen it in California and almost every deep-blue state.”


    Takoma Park became the first city in Maryland to allow the practice after voters narrowly approved the measure in 1991. Hyattsville and Mount Rainier, as well as the neighboring Montgomery County cities of Takoma Park, Barnesville, Garrett Park, Glen Echo, Martin’s Additions and Somerset have all legalized voting by non-citizens.
    Left-of-center websites like ThinkProgress and Newsweek hailed the decision as a victory for inclusiveness.
    Officials in the District of Columbia have repeatedly considered allowing non-citizens to vote but have decided against it. New York City extended voting privileges to non-citizens in school board elections until 2002. Chicago has more recently allowed non-citizens to vote in school board elections. San Francisco voted last November to allow not only non-citizens but also illegal aliens to vote in school board elections if they have children in public schools.
    Ann Corcoran, a Maryland native who blogs on immigration issues at Refugee Resettlement Watch, said conservatives in the state have long been frustrated.


    Maryland’s Republican Gov. Larry Hogan

    “Well, it’s no surprise in Maryland to see this type of thing, because Maryland has been coddling illegal aliens for decades,” Corcoran said. “Then we elected a Republican governor [Larry Hogan]. We thought he would at least try to rein in some of this stuff, but he doesn’t take any leadership position on it,” Corcoran said.
    “He’s not doing anything to discourage this type of behavior. It’s sort of hopeless for us conservatives in Maryland. We elected a Republican governor in a blue state, and it’s the same old thing. So people get discouraged. Gov. Hogan is not supportive of Trump on anything, whether it be the wall or restricting refugees or anything. Many of us were disgusted that we elected a Republican in name only, in the Paul Ryan mold on immigration. He keeps his mouth shut. “

    This is what they want. More cities will be attempting this, permitting non citizens, legal and illegal, refugees to vote. Kris Kobach's efforts on voter fraud won't matter much if non citizens are allowed to vote in elections.

    Democrats will rejoice if amnesty occurs under President Trump for they will have successfully created a permanent democrat majority.

    Breaking: Non-Citizen Voting Reversed in College Park

    Larry Provost
    Posted: Sep 16, 2017 9:46 AM




    On Friday night, the City of College Park, Maryland reversed its city council decision that allowed non-citizens of the U.S., including illegal aliens, the right to vote. This was due to council conveniently forgetting that such massive changes to the College Park City Charter require the vote of a supermajority on council as opposed to a simple majority.

    Ironically, the law that mandated a supermajority to pass changes to the city charter was enacted just this summer while the proposal to allow illegals and other non-citizens to vote, and was passed 4-3, was voted on only a few months later on September 12, 2017.


    As the College Park City Council cannot be trusted to follow its own laws, it is inevitable that certain College Park council members will try to resurrect this issue in line with their lawless, progressive agenda.


    As a resident of College Park, the father of an immigrant, a Christian who believes Jesus died for all people, and having served to protect foreign peoples with different backgrounds and religions, I can safely tell you that allowing non-citizens to vote was, and remains, ludicrous.


    First, this proposal diluted the meaning of citizenship. Citizenship, with its rights, privileges, and responsibilities is a high calling. Citizenship, for those not born as Americans but wishing to become Americans, means swearing an oath and being willing to bear arms on behalf of the United States while forsaking all foreign allegiances (exceptions to having to take the oath are made for young children for whom, it is expected, their parents will teach them the meaning of citizenship).


    My son of 15 years of age recently had to swear this oath. It is not too much ask of people to not only be a certain age to vote, but also to be citizens who are willing to forego all foreign allegiances and being willing to defend this great nation.

    How ironic that those who are currently decrying foreign involvement in our elections are the same individuals saying non-citizens should have the vote.

    Second, if all the privileges and powers of citizenship are given to non-citizens, then what incentive is there to become a citizen?

    Immigrants and non-citizens are not inherently bad people. Most of our country traces its lineage to immigrants. My family just expanded considerably because of an immigrant. However, the proposal is a citizenship issue, not an immigration issue.

    Amazingly, while my son was waiting for his citizenship and residing in the U.S., illegal aliens had more rights to benefits than he did.


    The leftists pushing this agenda are trying to have it both ways. They talk of inclusiveness but say that those who spoke against the proposed amendment are “racists” and “white supremacists.” The leftists recently succeeded in declaring College Park a sanctuary city in keeping with the national movement. Yet proponents of the proposal say letting non-citizens vote should be a non-issue because voting in local elections only means the gathering of trash.


    Really, that’s what leftists think the power to make decisions over people’s lives amount to? Gathering trash? If that’s the case, is the trash really that bad in College Park? If so, perhaps what is really needed is taking out the trash, starting with a new City Council.

    The local progressives can’t have it both ways and the truth is they are trying to make a national political statement.


    The very definition of progressivism is just that; progressive to where there is no stopping point and that standards are continually lowered politically, economically, and spiritually in the name of creating a bigger political tent and base. This is the leftist mantra. They will never tell us when they are done with their incremental proposals to change our communities and ultimately our nation.


    One other thing. If the College Park City Council persists in wanting to let non-citizens vote than perhaps council should divest itself of their power and allow non-members of council to make the decisions of College Park instead of council. That would at least be consistent, for council’s recent amnesia regarding their own voting laws shows they are not fit to govern and vote on behalf of others.
