San Francisco Gives Illegal Aliens The Right To Vote


"The same leftists whining incessantly about "Russian meddling" in our democracy just granted non-citizens the right to vote in local elections in San Francisco."


How can this even be legal?

We lived in the bay area (Marin County) in the 60s and hubby worked in San Francisco and we thought it was bad then. Holly Cow, I am glad we are no longer anywhere near the place. What is next for them?

Very poorly worded title and you should have read the details. This is for school board elections only.



Non citizen doesn't equal undocumented immigrants. We also have permanent residents (aka green card holders) which are also non citizens. These non citizens pay all the same taxes that citizens pay so it makes sense to give them the right to vote.



The article also says this will expire in 2022 unless the ordinance is renewed.



This snippet at the end is going to prevent nearly all undocumented immigrants from voting, so I wouldn't worry too much about it.


"The ordinance also requires a notice on non-citizen voter materials that any information provided to the Dept may be obtained from the Federal Govt."


No one's going to risk getting deported to cast a vote.

They have almost guaranteed they are going to be hit with a lawsuit where they are going to be accused of denying American citizens their right to representation under the US Constitution.

You should be banned for spreading misinformation and posting that site. Seriously, research a subject and use some common sense. FOX would be shouting this from the rooftops as people like you would be so glued to the TV for so long your eyeballs might melt.

Even more to the point, which the leftists are completely silent about, SF voted to give Russian citizens the right to vote in their elections.



Imagine what doors that gives Putin to meddle in that election.

oh for heavens sake, of course it is local but it is a start and it is a dumb idea. If you are here illegally you are a criminal and you should should have to right to vote even for the neighborhood watch patrol.

You didnt even read the post you responded to.


non citizen =\= Illegal

it seems all of these people are parents of kids who live in the district and either have a green card or are diplomats.
