New York Mayor Eric Adams, the New York City Council, and New York City’s Board of Elections were sued Monday over a new law that lets noncitizens vote in elections.

The Republican National Committee (RNC) filed the suit in New York Supreme Court along with City Council Minority Leader Joseph Borrelli, Rep. Nicole Malliotakis (R-N.Y.), and other Republicans.

Plaintiffs say a new bill that was passed by the Democrat-controlled City Council and allowed to become a law by Adams, a Democrat who took office on Jan. 1, violates the state Constitution and election law.

Open Borders = Election Sabotage (Solution: Immigration Moratorium), by Michelle Malkin, 11 January 2022:

... Open borders are not just a recipe for replacing native-born workers with cheap foreign labor and trading assimilation for multicultural militancy. They're about undermining the historic nation through devalued citizenship and sabotage of the precious right to vote.

Over the weekend, New York City's Democrat mayor Eric Adams threw his support to a City Council–approved measure to allow an estimated 800,000 local noncitizens to participate in local elections. The newly minted voters would include green-card holders, temporary visa holders, including H-1B workers mostly from China and India, F-1/Optional Practical Training foreign university students with employment authorization, and potentially unknown masses of illegal alien so-called Dreamers.

These new voters will be granted enormous influence over vital local matters pertaining to everything from education to taxes to crime and only need to show they've been in the city for a measly 30 days....

Adams proclaimed in a statement... "... and look forward to bringing millions more into the democratic process."

"Democratic process," of course, is a euphemism for "Democrat Party."...
