Meanwhile, Back in the Jungle: Maine Wants Aliens to Have a Vote (Not the Outer Space Kind)

By Debbie Schlussel
While Department of Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano a/k/a “The Lesbionic Woman” harasses Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agents for doing their jobs and tries to put most immigration enforcement on hold, liberal-dominated states, like Maine, are pressing ahead to give illegal aliens full rights usually restricted by law to U.S. citizens.
It’s beyond ridiculous.

Lawmakers are preparing to consider a bill that would let communities choose to allow non-U.S. citizens to vote in municipal elections.
Proponents argue that letting non-citizen immigrants vote on local issues would include them in the community, and provide incentive for them to pursue citizenship.

Huh? The only community they should be included in is the detention and removal community. Why on earth would we want to provide “incentive” for lawbreakers to become citizens? We don’t have enough foreigners with suspect records trying and succeeding to become citizens and we need more?

The bill, LD 1195, was sponsored by Sen. Justin Alfond, D-Portland, and co-sponsored by Rep. Brian Bolduc, D-Auburn. It was referred this week to the Legal and Veterans Affairs Committee.
Alfond said he spoke to a number of households in his one-time role as state director of the League of Young Voters.

Sounds like ACORN.

He would talk to residents about issues in upcoming local elections, Alfond said, and then learn that they couldn’t vote because they weren’t U.S. citizens.

Tragedy.

“I want to look at this,” said Alfond. “Is there a way to give people in our communities a bigger way to be involved?”

Barf. Why not let people’s pet dogs vote? I mean, we should find a way to give them a bigger way to be involved, too.

There’s a variety of legal Maine residents who are not U.S. citizens, said Alfond, including doctors, refugees, students, hockey players and more.

Yes, America was not a good place, before Wayne Gretzky, Anna Kournikova, and some Muslim students at the University of South Florida who plotted terrorist acts, could vote here. . . .

Allowing that part of the community to vote would be inclusive, said Alfond, and would give more people a voice.

Allowing convicted pedophiles sitting in prison to vote on child molestation laws would be “inclusive,” too, so let’s do it! Everyone is entitled to their say, right?

Ron Hayduk, professor of political science at the Borough of Manhattan Community College and author of the book “Democracy for All,” said immigrants who are not citizens are allowed to vote in a number of communities.
Chicago, for instance, allows them to vote in school elections, and six towns in Maryland allow them to vote in all local elections. They can vote in the Massachusetts towns of Cambridge, Amherst and Newton, said Hayduk, and proposals have been made to do the same in Chelsea and Somerville, and likely will resurface in Boston after a 2007 defeat.

Yes, all of the Marxist zones of America. Awesome.
I have an idea. Let’s just hand out citizenship to anyone who is now in or ever steps foot into America. You know, just to be inclusive and give everyone a voice. Who cares about borders or sovereignty?

As a Canadian who worked legally in the U.S. for 10 years, all the time paying U.S. taxes, I never once considered it would be appropriate for me to vote.
Now illegals want that right??

Time for my favorite game!
What is the liberal semantic response going to be?
A- Let them come out of the shadows. And straight into a voting booth
B- What better way to enact Comprehensive Immigration Reform than to empower the immigrants to have a say in how the laws are created and by whom?
C- Anyone who opposes this legislation is a Racist Xenophobe!
D- All of the above

Best idea you posted today, Debs.

Norman Blitzer–at first I think I understand what you are saying…but after I read further…what are you saying, dud?–you pick C, I guess. Well you’re doing better than usual (hey that’s a compliment).
As for the whole idea this giving the vote to illegals represents, I can only say one thing…WTF? Folks, we who love this country are screwed. Unfreaking-believable!

How about we start arresting our elected leaders and try them for Treason.
How about putting them on trial on live TV and then put them on the gallows in a public square in Washington DC.
How about we start with Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano and work our way through the US Senate next.
Americans need to unite and put a stop the wholesale slaughter of the USA as we know it.

Lets deport Norman Blitzer and let him have the full feeling of living in another country. Though as a liberal they want illegal immigrants but once they get outnumbered they become irrelevant and don’t live in those neighborhoods. Just look at Los Angeles the liberals live on the West side. All the poor and illegals live on the other east side of the I-405. Liberals drive in to those neighborhoods, have a few photo-ops and leave before sun sets. Liberals don’t allow their children to stay in the same schools as the illegals and the poor. Liberals put their kids in private schools in the West Side of Los Angeles? Wow, but they rage after Conservatives who make it a point the system is broke and they are called xenophobes. Well liberals seem to be xenophobes since they won’t allow their children to be in the same schools. Just kind of like KING HUSSEIN COBRAMA and Bill Clinton put their children in private schools. Bush does the same and he’s got a silver spoon in their mouth?
Flop House Nation continues….

I suspect there may be a Muslim angle to this story. Lewiston, Maine has the second highest Somali Muslim immigrant community in the US (behind Minneapolis-St.Paul). I wonder if they and their leftist enablers are pushing for this camel’s-nose-under-the-tent initiative?

What a TRAGEDY that America has lowered it’s expectations to allow ANYONE who is PHYSCIALLY PRESENT to take part of the Election Process.
Those who want to bestow rights on ILLEGAL ALIENS are the first to deny the EXISTENCE of the Unborn Child who is murdered 24/7 in this Country without any exceptions.
I have long said that the American Citizens are like the “bugs” in Bugs Life. The Liberals/Socialist/Communists/Mainstreet Media/etc. are the “grasshoppers” in Bugs Life. They sit and enjoy the RICHES of the bugs and then LAUGH about the fact that IF the bugs ever woke up and realized that THEY were the majority and that THEY could control their own destiny that the Bugs would…take control.
Well, American Citizens now is the time to WAKE UP. If you can’t WAKE UP for yourself then ask yourself this simple question: What ability will our children, and grandchildren, have to WAKE UP if they would never KNOW…any difference?
Nuff said.

Well, I guess anything that helps the Democrats. What a constuency — felons, young kids who are even dumber than their elders for the most part, people too stupid to fill out ballots or read them correctly, and now, and not for the first time, illegal aliens. The Democrats have been working on increasing their voting power for a long time; it was usually just a little more indirect than this.
What about the idea of having a vote in proportion to the amount of taxes you pay?

Don’t forget who these illegal aliens are. They are not from Mexico. Maine, NH, and Vermont have the largest Somalia Muslim population in the country. We imported over 100,000 “refugees” from somalia, they are muslims, and they are not citizens, but now they will have the right to vote. All of this illegal alien crap has nothing to do with Mexicans, it has everything to do with Muslims.
CAIR just sent Obama, on his request a book of at least 45 Muslim/Americans that he can hire for his administration.
