The bill would allow these individuals to vote in all local elections.

When de Blasio was asked what he would do regarding the legislation, he stated, “This is something the council has decided to do.

“It’s a democracy — certainly not something I’d be intending to veto, but it’s also not something I’m sure is the right way to go about this.”

We have seen legislation like this passed in other cities, but New York would be, by far, the largest city to enact such legislation.

If passed, non-citizens could cast a vote for mayor, comptroller, public advocate, borough president, city council, and any city ballot initiative.

A lot of people are keeping their eye on how this proceeds, as there is similar legislation on the docket in cities in California, Maine, Illinois, and Massachusetts.

Even if the legislation does not get passed before de Blasio leaves office, Mayor-elect Eric Adams has also expressed his support for the bill.

He recently stated, “We cannot be a beacon to the world and continue to attract the global talent, energy, and entrepreneurship that has allowed our city to thrive for centuries if we do not give immigrants a vote in how this city is run and what our priorities are for the future.”

A week ago, Joe Biden told Americans that prices aren’t actually high.

But the numbers don’t lie.

Inflation is up 14.4% since Biden took office.

And all the president can offer are more lies.

Inflation ⬆️ more than expected.

Overall CPI: +6.4% y/y
Fuel Oil: +27.7%
Electricity: +11.9%
Groceries: +11.3%
Chicken +10.5%
Milk: +11%
Eggs: +70.1%
Bread: +14.9%
Potatoes: +12.4%
Baby Food: +10%
Airline Fares: +25.6%
Real Average Hourly Earnings: -1.8%

Year-over-year real wages have been negative for 22 months - ever since Biden forced through his $1.9 trillion "stimulus."

That's a wages recession for American workers.
