A city councilor is walking back the possibility of letting illegal immigrants vote in Boston’s elections, and her push to let other noncitizens vote is meeting resistance from a fellow councilor who said he’ll fight to keep voting open only to citizens.
City Council President Andrea Campbell is calling for a hearing on letting noncitizens vote in city elections, and told the Herald earlier this week she was open to the possibility of illegal immigrants voting for councilors and the mayor. But after receiving “a lot of feedback,” she adjusted her proposal — saying yesterday it would only affect “immigrants with legal status.”
OK not this time, but it has come up and is now a respectable position. At least in Massachusetts.
The time will come when you will be called an evil person if you are not enthusiastic enough about illegal aliens voting.
Well maybe not, but only because it is a race against time that something else may make it irrelevant, such as the money running out.
