College Park, Maryland Will Allow Illegal Immigrants to Vote

The city of College Park, Maryland, has approved a measure that will allow illegal immigrants to vote in local elections. By a 4-3 vote, and after roughly four hours of contentious debate, non-citizens were granted a right that should only be held by residents of the city who are Americans or legal immigrants.

Fox 5 reports that College Park “joins six other towns in allowing legal permanent residents and undocumented immigrants to vote in municipal elections.”

According to WJLA in Washington, one council member proposed an amendment that would only allow non-citizens to vote if they could prove they were in the country legally, via a green card for example. The amendment was shot down when the mayor, Patrick Wojahn, cast a tie-breaking vote against it.

College Park has been debating the issue of allowing non-citizens to vote for months. They were supposed to hold a vote in August but it was postponed after alleged threats against a council member.

The vote was conducted after council member Fazlul Kabir – the same member who attempted to add the amendment – tried to have a non-binding voter referendum, which was also squashed by Wojahn’s tie-breaking vote.

“Although you come up here and you say that there are hundreds of citizens and residents of College Park that are for this charter, I can tell you that there are thousands against it,” said Beth Debrosky, a resident who opposed the measure. “Voting is a right of the citizens. It’s plain and clear. It’s constitutional. It’s also written at the state level and it also belongs at the local level.”

At a previous meeting on the matter, Laurence Provost explained that “voting is a right, but it is also a privilege and there are standards for voting.”

He added, “Citizenship is special.”

Not to Democrats. Citizenship is just an artificial barrier to inflating their voter rolls.

SWEET: Republican Representative Introduces Resolution To Expel Nancy Pelosi From Congress

Louisiana Republican Rep. Ralph Abraham has introduced legislation to expel Speaker Nancy Pelosi from the House of Representatives.

Abraham’s resolution accuses Pelosi of a “vicious crusade” against President Donald Trump.

“Nancy Pelosi’s vicious crusade against our lawfully-elected President is nothing more than a politically-motivated witch hunt and it must be stopped,” Abraham said in a statement obtained by Fox News. “She has disgraced the people’s House and weaponized the Speaker’s gavel for her party’s political gain.”

“House Democrats spent nearly three years obsessed with election meddling only to dwarf any such efforts with their own deceitful plan to nullify the 2016 election and prevent President Trump from winning in 2020,” the statement continued. “I have introduced a resolution calling for her to be expelled from the House and for the Speaker’s Office to be vacated.”

The text of the resolution, which is most definitely not going to pass the Democrat-controlled House reads: “Resolved, That pursuant to Article 1, Section 5, Clause 2 of the United States Constitution, Representative Nancy Pelosi be, and she hereby is, expelled from the House of Representatives and the Office of the Speaker is declared to be vacant.”

Fox News notes that constitutional clause holds that “Each House may determine the Rules of its Proceedings, punish its Members for disorderly Behaviour, and, with the Concurrence of two thirds, expel a Member.”
