The law was passed late in 2021 by the New York City Council. It created a class of voters made up of noncitizens who were granted the right to register for and vote in local elections.


The so-called “municipal voters” would have had to reside in the city for only 30 days before an election and could have voted for mayor, public advocate, comptroller, borough president, and council member, according to Fox News.

It’s estimated that the law would have allowed between 800,000 and 1 million noncitizens to vote.

>Richmond County Supreme Court Judge Ralph Porzio wrote the court’s ruling, saying, “The New York State Constitution explicitly lays the foundation for ascertaining that only proper citizens retain the right to voter privileges.”

The Republican National Committee and New York Republican State Committee spearheaded the lawsuit against city officials over the law. They argued it violated the state constitution and would dilute the votes of legal citizens.

Representative Nicole Malliotakis (R-NY), who represents Staten Island, celebrated the decision.

“This Supreme Court decision is a victory for preserving the integrity and security of our elections,” she said in a statement.

“I stand with the vast majority of New Yorkers who are pleased to see the court strike down Democrats’ shameful attempt to dilute the voices of American citizens by allowing non-citizens to vote. The government should be working to create more trust in our elections, not less.”

The people who push things like non citizens voting are not American in my view.

Absolutely biggest bunch of un American assholes ever in New York . How can you calm yourself American and believe in constitution and pull this bullshit voting for illegals .. Anyone who votes illegally and knowingly should be deported immediately. About time we obeyed and enforced the laws of the land. These left wing assholes are openly defying our laws and we need to round them up and put their ass inQuantanamo with the rest of the scum bags.. Shut the left wing Media down as well . Spreading lies and misinformation . Everyone read my lips. Believe none of what you read and only a third of what you see..

One of the blessings of American Citizenship is the right to vote. Allowing non-citizens and even illegals to vote is just wrong, as well as unconstitutional! I’m hopeful that more and more courts will uphold the Constitution, instead of worrying about peoples “feelings”!
Good job New York!

We must be sure that liberals don’t take control of the courts. We’re in deep shit if they do
