(Reuters) - A New York lawmaker wants to grant many of the rights of citizenship to millions of illegal immigrants and non-citizen residents, including the right to vote in local and state elections, under a bill introduced on Monday.

The New York Is Home Act is the first bill in the United States that would provide such broad rights to non-citizens who can show they have lived and paid taxes in New York for at least three years, according to the bill's sponsor, state Senator Gustavo Rivera.

For the last forty years the Party of Government (GOP and ‘Rats together) has done all that it can to replace American voters with Mexicans.

Why?

Good question, I know dims are convinced they will get those votes and I think that is true, not sure why GOP is going along with it.

Why?

So the Mexican can take over and be their new slave masters in the future?

Because bipartisanship is an illusion and the both pitch for the same team?

There is no way they will be allowed to vote for federal offices.

Will they have to have two voting booths?

Does NY not have voter ID laws?

Does 40,000 innocent children brought to the US/Mexico Border due to illegal promises and illegal Executive “Dreamer” Orders from Obama qualify Obama to be placed on the US State Department’s Blacklist for Human Trafficking?

including the right to vote in local and state elections

"Welcome to the polls, sir. You're not eligible to vote for president or senator, so please don't touch those levers, okay?"

I think Albany, NY could use a delivery of some illegal aliens to keep as pets.

>> they have lived and paid taxes in New York for at least three years

Illegals have SS numbers? Are are they paying taxes, breaking even, or getting credits?

Yes, we do. Have to show ID and sign a register comparing signature on file.

This guy's a loon.

These efforts are all ploys to incrementalize illegals’ complete citizen rights. Nothing more.

Once given the right to vote in state and local elections they will be petitioning the Supreme Court for the right to vote in national elections.

The US Constitution says nothing about a citizen’s right to vote in the national election for President. That is the purview of the STATES. So, any given STATE that allows local and state voting and simultaneously denying the national right would seem to me to be in conflict with itself since it is the decider for both. The SC would pounce on this and give the right to all of them, in my opinion.
