For the better part of a year, Democrats have tried and failed to force a federal takeover of our elections. With Americans rejecting their partisan power grabs, Democrats are now going for broke when it comes to attacking election integrity: letting foreign citizens vote in American elections.

Earlier this year, Democrats in the Vermont Legislature doubled down on a radical plan to let non-citizens vote in two Vermont cities. The Republican National Committee (RNC) recently announced we are suing in response. Now, Democrats want to do the same thing they did in Vermont in America’s largest city. This week, the New York City Council is considering a measure that would allow more than 800,000 non-citizens to vote in their city’s elections. In Democrat-dominated New York, the proposal is expected to pass easily. It should concern every American that these assaults on our elections are gaining traction in both small towns and big cities.

It isn’t surprising why the left is leading a coordinated push to let non-citizens decide our elections. As they learned last month in Virginia, Democrats know that voters are rejecting their failed policies. That’s why they want to open the voter rolls up to anyone who they think will vote to rubber stamp their radical agenda. It’s clear Democrats are hell-bent on gaining political power. If they have to diminish what it means to be an American citizen and dilute the value of Americans’ vote to do it, that’s a price they’re are willing to pay.

In the past, such progressive fantasies might have been fodder for debate on liberal college campuses – and nothing more. Sadly, today such extreme ideas are accepted as mainstream in the Democrat Party. In addition to being blatantly unconstitutional under New York law– something even New York City’s Democrat Mayor Bill de Blasio has conceded – letting non-citizens vote is a terribly unwise idea.

Remember, in 2020 New York City proved that they couldn’t manage to run primary elections without making a complete mess of the process. Their shoddy administration of mail-in ballots was especially deserving of criticism.
