College Park Maryland Council gives Illegal Aliens right to Vote

Surprisingly some people object to this

A city in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., has decided to allow non-citizens to vote in municipal elections.

In a heated session that went on for hours, the city council of College Park, Maryland, approved a bill Tuesday that allows non-citizens to vote. The controversial decision came down just before midnight.

Mayor Patrick Wojahn said the majority of residents who have submitted comments support the amendment. The bill allows green-card holders, undocumented immigrants and student-visa holders to vote in local elections.
The New York Times reported in August that 10 municipalities in Maryland already allow non-citizen voting in local elections. They include Hyattsville and Mount Rainier, which changed their laws in the past year.

Unless the 9th Circus hears this I'm pretty sure it will be voided most Ricky-tick (that annoying Constitution thing)

1. Open rebellion of Federal Law. Time to start meeting your like minded neighbors, make a plan.

8. In your opinion which is more dangerous:

Granting rights to non-citizens or stripping away rights from cut all citizens?

4. Not going to be voided

Cities have been doing this for a while. It's not new, and has nothing to do with federal law. They are only eligible to vote on College park stuff.

Here's the list all in MD,except for San Fran coming in 2018. Goes back to 1918.

5. They can allow this on local stuff if they want to. I question of the wisdom of giving voting

rights to college students for local questions as most college kids don't know or care about local property tax, school board, or general infrastructure issues, but now they'll be influencing decisions on them.

9. I agree

This just opens up the possibility of voter fraud. All these illegals are now registered voters.

Sure, it's illegal to vote in federal elections, but they already broke the law to get here. What's one more stupid law?

10. It certainly does open up the door to voter fraud. This will backfire on them once someone

figures out that the town has about 32,000 residents (this counts children too) but the college has close to 38,000 students, all of which would be eligible to vote if they wanted to. You could get almost anything passed if you're just willing to spend enough time getting low-information college students to come out and vote.
