(ReclaimingAmerica.net) – In a victory heralded by the Republican National Committee (RNC) which brought the lawsuit, a court has ruled that noncitizens — many illegal aliens — cannot vote in elections in the United States.
Specifically, according to the Daily Caller in “Court Strikes Down NYC Law Allowing Noncitizens To Vote”:
“The New York Supreme Court ruled Monday in favor of a lawsuit against giving noncitizens the right to vote in local elections.
“The Republican National Committee (RNC) sued New York City Mayor Eric Adams, the New York City Council and the New York City Board of Elections in January for passing a law allowing noncitizens to vote.”
In its decision, the New York Supreme Court wrote:
“There is no statutory ability for the City of New York to issue inconsistent laws permitting noncitizens to vote and exceed the authority granted to it by the New York State Constitution.”
Further, “Though voting is a right that so many citizens take for granted, the City of New York cannot ‘obviate’ the restrictions imposed by the Constitution.”
In a statement heralding the decision, the Republican National Committee wrote:
“Today’s ruling is a huge victory for election integrity and the rule of law: American elections should be decided by American citizens. The [Republican National Committee (RNC)] is proud to head a broad coalition in successfully challenging this unconstitutional scheme and will continue to lead the effort across the country to ensure only citizens can vote in America’s elections.”
