The city is full of dirty needles and poop, but San Francisco thought it was pertinent to extend voting rights to illegal aliens and non-citizens. Yep, these people now allowed to be placed on the voter rolls for school board elections (via Sacramento Bee):
San Francisco began registering non-citizens, including undocumented immigrants, to register to vote Monday in the November election for the city school board, reported The San Francisco Chronicle.
The move follows passage of a 2016 ballot measure by San Francisco voters opening school elections to non-citizens who are over the age of 18, city residents and have children under age 19, reported the publication.
“This is no-brainer legislation,” Hillary Ronen, a San Francisco supervisor, told the Chronicle. “Why would we not want our parents invested in the education of their children?”
“We want to give immigrants the right to vote,” Norman Yee, also a county supervisor, told KGO.
San Francisco became the first city in California to allow non-citizens to vote in local elections following passage of Measure N with 54 percent of the vote after two previous failed tries, reported KTVU.
There are concerns that the non-citizen voter registration rolls, which will be open, could be used to target people who entered the U.S. illegally, reported The San Francisco Examiner.
“Our immigrants, are they vulnerable? Absolutely,” Supervisor Sandra Lee Fewer told the publication. “But in San Francisco we stand strong together.”
This is typical of deep blue bastions, especially those in California. They’re in a battle with New York over which state is the real progressive mecca of the country. Frankly, for me, it’s a tale of two cesspools. San Francisco also seems to have more pressing issues at hand. There’s crap all over the city. That’s not a joke. Mayor London Breed said she’s never seen so many feces all over since she’s lived here. The street cleaning budget is being increased by 20 percent to deal with this issue. There are also dirty needles everywhere, but let’s focus on the illegal alien who can’t vote in the upcoming school board race. Cue the eyerolls.
