Maryland city mulling idea to let illegal aliens vote


Council member Christine Nagle: “It just makes sense.”

Demorats love giving voting “rights” to their “constituents.”

From Fox News: A D.C. suburb in Maryland is considering a plan that would give undocumented immigrants illegal aliens the right to vote, making their city the largest in the Old Line State to do so.

The city, which is home of the University of Maryland’s main campus and nearly 30,000 residents, is weighing approval of the new measure to let noncitizens cast ballots for mayor and City Council, The Baltimore Sun reported Sunday.

Supporters of the measure say that local elections focus on issues like trash collection, and other municipal services and they are issues that affect residents of the city, regardless of their citizenship status.

“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 is sponsoring the measure, said to the newspaper. “To me, it just made sense.”

Others in the community say that immigrants should not have a say until they have completed the process of becoming a citizen. “On a personal level, I do not agree that noncitizens should be voting,” College Park City Councilwoman Mary C. Cook said before adding that she will listen to her constituents before making a decision.

Jeff Werner, an advocate for tighter immigration restrictions with the advocacy group Help Save Maryland told the newspaper that he felt even more strongly about undocumented immigrants illegal aliens going to the voting booth. “What gives them that privilege?” He asked.

A total of 10 municipalities across two counties allow noncitizens to vote in local elections. Voters in Takoma Park, a liberal enclave in Montgomery County, narrowly approved a referendum in making the town one of the first to allow the practice in Maryland.

It was preceded by Barnesville — a small town near Sugarloaf Mountain in Montgomery County — has allowed noncitizens to vote since 1918 and Somerset, which approved noncitizen voting in 1976.

The number of communities in Maryland adopting the measure has surged in recent months. Hyattsville in Prince George’s County approved immigrant voting just last year, followed by Mount Rainier, also in Prince George’s County.

The College Park proposal like the other municipalities, does not distinguish between legal permanent residents and undocumented immigrants illegal aliens.

Those in favor of the policy say that’s by design. “We very intentionally made it so that we did not have questions about citizenship status,” said Patrick Paschall, a former member of the Hyattsville council who championed the legislation there said to the Sun. “It undermines the premise of noncitizen voting to try to draw a distinction.”

    • Kevin . . . You are 100% correct! I just don’t understand how this could have gotten started in the first place. It truly is “treasonous” as you have stated!

  8. Give me your tired, your poor, send your refuse, illegal aliens, the drug addicts, the entire cartel, and I will lift my shutgon inside the golden door, Try to step in at your own risk!


  9. Amazing self-serving ignorance and hubris. An ILLEGAL resident has the right to vote? Doesn’t that further diminish the once cherished status of “US CItizen”. Of course, it does. It’s a globalist, no-borders, faux compassionate mindset which is undermining the last vestiges of our constitutional republic. The insanity and hubris is mind-boggling and deeply offensive. But you know what? The dingbat citizens of the community will either say nothing or support it. We don’t deserve a constitutional republic. We lack the virtue, moral compass and courage. All that work done by our founders is for naught. Rule of Law and a virtuous citizenry are oh so DEAD.

  10. How Mexico treats illegal aliens; by Michelle Malkin
    Creators Syndicate – Copyright 2010 ;
    — The Mexican government will bar foreigners if they upset “the equilibrium of the national demographics.” How’s that for racial and ethnic profiling?

    — If outsiders do not enhance the country’s “economic or national interests” or are “not found to be physically or mentally healthy,” they are not welcome. Neither are those who show “contempt against national sovereignty or security.” They must not be economic burdens on society and must have clean criminal histories. Those seeking to obtain Mexican citizenship must show a birth certificate, provide a bank statement proving economic independence, pass an exam and prove they can provide their own health care.

    — Illegal entry into the country is equivalent to a felony punishable by two years’ imprisonment. Document fraud is subject to fine and imprisonment; so is alien marriage fraud. Evading deportation is a serious crime; illegal re-entry after deportation is punishable by ten years’ imprisonment. Foreigners may be kicked out of the country without due process and the endless bites at the litigation apple that illegal aliens are afforded in our country

  11. Letter: What of Canada’s illegal immigrants? – Last Updated: December 1, 2014

    While the U.S. has about 13 million undocumented immigrants, Canada has about 75,000. (The estimates range from 50,000 to over 100,000.)

    The political divide and the poisonous debate about immigration in America is alien to Canada’s political culture. Most Canadians are fair-minded when it comes to immigration issues. But when it is related to the undocumented people who disobey rules, overstay illegally or enter Canada without proper papers, they are looked upon with utmost disrespect and suspicion.

    People who jump the regular queue are not generally welcomed in Canada. It is, as Professor Peter Showler said, “a very high Canadian value” to oppose this kind of behaviour, regardless of the unfairness of current rules or circumstances.

    Citizenship and Immigration Canada recently commissioned a poll about the issue and found that nearly two-thirds of Canadians had unfavourable opinions on the undocumented immigrants in Canada. They prefer them deported over granting them special status.

  12. I lived in Maryland for almost 59 years, and I can tell you that it has become a liberal bastion over the years; so much so, that it is only second to California!

  13. Under no condition should anyone but an honest to God citizen of this country have the right to vote. This isn’t out of concern for illegals, this is another degree of voter fraud.
    And all those that were allowed to jump the line and put on the fast track to citizenship the last eight years needs to be looked at again. If they aren’t self supporting or disobeying our laws, get them out of here.
