New York City’s mayor has come out against giving voting rights to non-citizen legal immigrants, something that is, incredibly, being discussed at the moment. The mayor explained that “the essence of citizenship is the right to vote, and you should go about becoming a citizen before you get the right to vote.”
No vote for me, in other words.
Bloomberg’s right, of course, but what’s astonishing is that the debate has moved so far that such a statement of the blindingly obvious is, in fact, controversial.
Meanwhile, self-appointed Latino ‘advocacy’ group, ‘La Raza’, finds it ’alarming’ that 88 passengers on a domestic flight that arrived in Newark on Thursday were detained as illegal immigrants. Needless to say, La Raza was alarmed by the arrests, not the number of the ‘undocumented’.
