Let the slippery slope begin. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the city of San Francisco – fresh off a jury’s decision to make it legal for an illegal immigrant to murder a tourist – has opted to let non-citizens vote in their upcoming school board elections in November. Considering that election will undoubtedly take place the same day as the rest of the local and national races, what could possibly go wrong?!
The decision by the city comes after a 2016 ballot initiative in which San Francisco voters chose to open school district elections to non-citizens over the age of 18 who are residents of the city and have school-age children. This gracious abdication of social responsibility will, of course, open the ballot box up to thousands of illegal immigrants who have flocked to San Francisco in search of a city that will actively protect them from deportation.
“This is no-brainer legislation,” said San Francisco supervisor Hillary Ronen. “Why would we not want our parents invested in the education of their children?
We don’t disagree, Hillary. This legislation gives new meaning to the term “no-brainer.”
Republican National Committee member Harmeet Dhillon told local news station KGO that the local Democrats were opening the floodgates. “The reason I voted against it,” she said, “is that I think the right to vote is something that goes along with citizenship and should be.”
Amusingly, there are even some on the left who have questioned the idea of opening the rolls to illegal immigrants. Because they have some semblance of national loyalty left? No, silly: Because having these immigrants on the voter registration lists might make them easy pickings for deportation.
“Our immigrants, are they vulnerable? Absolutely,” Supervisor Sandra Lee told the San Francisco Examiner. “But in San Francisco, we stand strong together.”
We may sometimes be standing in a pile of human feces, but we stand together, dammit!
The idea of letting illegal immigrants vote in local elections is wildly popular among Democrats, and you don’t need a degree in Leftist Studies to figure out why. This is a baby step towards the reality they ultimately want, which is to have these immigrants voting in every other election this nation holds. The left is desperate to tear down any wall between illegal immigrants and U.S. citizens, and the reason is simple: The majority of people who come here illegally are biased towards Democrats. Not only for valid political reasons, but because Democrats are the ones handing out free money to every layabout that washes up on our shorelines. You can’t accuse them of voting against their interests!
Anyway, we’re sure the cheers will be deafening when San Francisco finally puts the first illegal immigrant on the school board. We would worry about what kind of curriculum that barrier-breaker will vote for, but knowing San Francisco as we do, it probably wouldn’t be any worse than what they’re putting in front of students today. Viva, Cali…
