NYC Mayoral Candidate Wants to Give Voting Rights to Non-Citizens

New York City mayoral candidate Eric Adams supports giving voting rights to non-citizens.

There are nearly a million non-US citizens living in the city.

Speaking to the press this week, Adams explained that he supports a City Council agenda item that would give anyone with green cards, visas, or work authorization voting rights. He also discussed his support for making sure that the Big Apple remains a “sanctuary city.”

“We need to make sure we give undocumented New Yorkers support they need to allow families to not live in the shadows of [the] American dream,” Adams said.

Under the city council effort, foreign nationals would only need to live in the city for 30 days to qualify to vote for mayor, comptroller, public advocate borough presidents, council members, and changes to city policy.

Breitbart News reports that “Democrats on the New York City Council attempted to pass the plan last year, seeking to give huge electoral power to the city’s 3.1 million foreign-born population — making up almost 40 percent of the total city population.”

New Yorkers will vote for mayor on November 2. Adams is facing Republican challenger Curtis Sliwa, the founder of the Guardian Angeles crime prevention organization.
