New York Republicans filed a lawsuit Monday to block a new law that would allow illegal aliens to vote.
The law suite filled in filed in Staten Island Supreme Court, asks a judge to issue an injunction that prevents the city Board of Elections and the mayor from “implementing the law in any respect” due to its unconstitutionality according to The New York Post.
“The law is clear and the ethics are even clearer: we shouldn’t be allowing citizens of other nations to vote in our elections, full stop. We are only two weeks into the Adams Administration and he is already kowtowing to the radical City Council,” New York Republican Party Chairman Nick Langworthy said.
“This lawsuit is the only thing that will stop them from their ultimate goal of eradicating all the lines between citizens and non-citizens,” he said.
Plaintiffs in the suit include Assemblymen Michael Reilly (R South Shore) and Michael Tannousis (R- Staten Island/ Southern Brooklyn), Councilmen David Carr (R- Staten Island) and Robert Holden (D- Queens), Republican Staten Island Borough President Vito Fossella, as well as Councilwomen Inna Vernikov (R- Brooklyn), Joann Ariola (R- Queens) and Vickie Paladino (R- Queens).
“Anyone reading NY state election law in plain English can see that it prohibits foreign citizen voting,” said Councilman Joe Borelli (R-Staten Island), the new City Council minority leader and another plaintiff in the suit also according to The New York Post.
The newly elected Mayor of NYC weighed in as well, saying, “While I initially had some concerns about one aspect of the bill, I had a productive dialogue with my colleagues in government that put those concerns at ease,” Adams said in a statement. “I believe allowing the legislation to be enacted is by far the best choice, and look forward to bringing millions more into the democratic process.” This statement is a direct assault on election integrity and the very concept of citizenship.
