NY Dem Wants to Let Illegals Vote

From the time of the Revolutionary War to today, more than 1.3 million men and women have died fighting for and preserved the right to vote for American citizens. Additionally, more than 1.5 million men and women have been wounded fighting for the right to vote. These men and women sacrificed themselves and their bodies for one of the most sacred rights of citizenship. Some of them were my relatives.

Millions more Americans fought for the right to vote and escaped injury. My dad, who just passed away last week, served 6 years in the US Navy, before, during and after World War II. His brother also served in the Navy during World War II. My wife’s brother served in the Air Force during the Korean War and my older brother also served in the Air Force in Vietnam. They all fought to preserve our right to vote.

If a New York Democrat gets his way, the 2.8 million Americans died and were wounded in vain. State Senator Gustavo Rivera wants to allow illegals to vote in all state and local elections. Last week, Rivera introduced a bill to give illegals the right to vote.

Rivera claims that not allowing them to vote is an injustice to the 3 million illegals living in New York. In an interview, he stated:

“Nearly 3 million people in the state of New York currently reside here and make New York their home, but can’t fully participate in civic, political, and economic life.”

Referring to the refusal of Republicans to act on Obama’s immigration reform, Rivera said:

“With failure at the national level on comprehensive immigration reform, the question we have asked is what can states do?”

Why would any law abiding American citizen want to grant rights and privileges to people who are breaking federal law by being here ILLEGALLY? I’m certain that when Rivera was sworn in as a New York state senator that he swore to uphold the laws and constitution of New York and the United States. Now he wants to trample those laws by granting the right to vote to 3 million illegals. This is a typical Democratic ploy to make voter fraud legal. His actions should warrant his removal from office for aiding and abetting illegal activity.

Personally, I take this as an affront and insult. From prior conversations with family members and friends who served in our military, granting citizenship and the right to vote to illegals is wrong and against everything they fought for. My dad once told me that he didn’t risk his life so that someone can break federal immigration laws, steal jobs and medical care from American citizens and then be granted the rights of American citizens. My dad was a life-long Democrat until Barack Obama and his liberal ways.

Instead of rewarding illegals with the right to vote, they should all be rounded up and shipped back to their countries of origin. Then we should bill those countries for all of the expenses incurred in the arrest, detention and deportation of the illegals. Perhaps that would spur these nations to take action to secure their side of the border.

Then I would bring all of our troops back from Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan and deploy them along our border with Mexico. I would provide them the necessary equipment to detect any movement across the border, day or night, above or below ground and then give them the order to stop all illegals crossing with whatever measure of force necessary. America needs to protect our own borders before we go half way around the world to protect the borders of others countries.

    Mr. Jolly, Nice headline. You pulled at the intended “heart strings” of patriotic Americans but you forgot something. There are Americans today who will not be able to vote in November because of the draconian voter ID laws and the shutdown of extended voting dates in Republican-led states.

    I don’t know that Rivera person but you’re feeding into the idea that Democrats and Americans of color should be blocked from voting. How dare you politicize the sacrifices of our men and women who served and died for us!! How dare you say that Democrats want illegal immigrants to vote. How dare you project the actions of an individual on an entire race and political party.

    Mr. Jolly, it is a very American idea to allow all Americans of legal age to vote.
    Conservatives are not honoring the sacrifices of our troops. Conservatives are restricting voter rights for personal gain. If anything, why would an American join the military and fight for a country that has no respect for its citizens? There are black Americans in the military. How do you think they feel about their families being discriminated against when it comes to voting?

    • jessica22

      Aren’t you just a wee bit embarrassed to pretend you have compassion for every “American of legal age” and their right to vote?
      To pretend you care about the “sacrifices of our troops”?
      To pretend our country “has no respect for its citizens”?

      If you’re NOT embarrassed, then why aren’t you fighting like us for simply the legal, constitutional right of ONE VOTE PER ONE LEGAL CITIZEN????

        He is a pathetic troll. Don’t feed it and it will go back under the bridge.

        • Sunshine Kid

          You are right there! Although I will admit I don’t consider woonsocket or BobE and other trolls to be “pathetic” – I consider them to be cancers of society.

        • Russell Lissuzzo

          Thanks Sargent; made me laugh!

    • dntmkmecomoverther

      You must be sniffing some kind of vapor…An ‘American’ is NOT an illegal invader but a person who was either born here LEGALLY to a LEGAL American family, OR is an immigrant who has followed the immigration laws we VOTED for and uphold. There is NO WAY a foreigner should be able to vote in ANY election….PERIOD. Note that color is not a qualifier either.

    • Jgahring

      There is a world of difference between allowing a person who has entered this country without regard to it’s laws and requiring an eligible vote to provide identification. An illegal alien is not a citizen, and therefore is not entitled to the benefits and priveledges afforded to a citizen. There is a legal method to enter this country and all who follow the laws to come here are welcome.
      Requiring an eligible voter to provide identification protects the voter and their rights. There are multiple means of obtaining proper identification, available to all citizens. No one protests the requirement to provide identification to purchase alcohol or cigarettes. No one protests requiring identification at the bank, the airport, or anywhere else. Why would any reasonable adult protest the requirement to provide identification to vote?

      • ProudSCresident

        I can’t even buy Sudafed at the drug store without an ID! I can’t go to my own doctor where I’ve gone for 30 years without showing an ID!!! It’s ridiculous to think showing an ID to vote is discriminatory!!! They Dems what NO ID so they can vote multiple times and so non-citizens can vote. PERIOD!!!! There is NO other valid reason to fight for no voter ID no matter what they rant and rave about. This is PURE LOGIC!!!!!!!!! Maybe we should start having voters dip their fingers in permanent dye at the polls like they do in some third world countries??????

    • daisykmt

      Minorities have ID for everything else—SNAP, Medicaid, etc. Why not voter ID?! There are actually, according to SNAP, more whites than blacks receiving food stamps: 43% white, 33% black, 19% Hispanic, 2% Asian or Native American. Whites make up 70% of the country per last census with blacks making up 19%. Relative to the nation’s overall demographic composition, a disproportionate number of African Americans receive food stamps. Identification is required for a myriad of things—proving one’s identity should not be an issue in voting. Only citizens should vote, and these citizens should prove their identities, no matter who they are, or what color their skin is.

      • Russell Lissuzzo

        BADGES? I DIN’T NEED NO STINKING BADGES!!!!

        • daisykmt

          Funny! Guess we could all use some comic relief because we’re grieved to death at what’s becoming of our beloved country!

    • Ddenney1

      That’s all United States citizen of legal age and can prove it should be able to vote! I do not understand why demon rats think minorities are not smart enough to get a drivers license that sounds awful racist to me but you are a demon rat the creator of the klan!!! Maybe you will finally get over you basic hate of all races not white but we have there backs with plans to move people of all colors out of poverty and into better lives. Al we have to do is vote out all racist demon rats and give real people a chance to succeed !! And get the government master off all of our backs!!!!

    • theshadow

      That is such an incoherent rant of idiocy I don’t know where to start.

      Step away from the crack pipe.

    • daisykmt

      Referring to what Woonsocket said—–“but you’re feeding into the idea that Democrats and Americans of color should be blocked from voting”. Where did the author say anything remotely like that?
      Also—–“How dare you say that Democrats want illegal immigrants to vote.” Of course he said it! Senator Rivera stood up and said it—it’s a matter of record. He may not be speaking for ALL democrats, but he said it!

      • woonsocket

        Rivera doesn’t speak for me.

        • Russell Lissuzzo

          Sorry to tell you this but anybody that believes that the façade “democrat” actually exists except in name only is yanking their own chain. As we all know yanking your own ain’t much fun!

    • ProudSCresident

      Woonsocket, you should read the article before commenting. I know of no Republican who wants to block any LEGAL American citizen, no matter what color, from voting. I’m an Independent, though. What all sane citizens of this country want is for only American citizens to be able to vote. Name ONE COUNTRY where you or I could go and be allowed to vote in their elections without first obtaining citizenship. Name just ONE, please. A walk across our border does not endow a person with automatic citizenship, sir.

      • ProudSCresident

        PS. I need to add that we want American citizens to vote and only vote ONE TIME per election!!!!!!

      • woonsocket

        Republican governors have made it harder to vote if you’re a Democrat and/or black.It’s been in the news for years. Here are a few of their stunts; Fewer advance voting days, inconvenient proximity of the polls, fewer hours to vote, telephone calls with lies about election dates and poll locations, fewer advance voting days causing long lines and hours of waiting to vote, jamming telephone lines of Dem. candidate’s offices, etc.

        “The Real Cost of Voter Id Laws”
        http://www.democrats.org/the-real-cost-of-photo-id-laws

        • ProudSCresident

          Those same things would make it harder for Republicans to vote, too. Dems drive bus loads of people around from poll to poll to vote multiple times. How do you figure we can eliminate voter fraud without voter ID laws? And don’t say it doesn’t exist. We all know it does. How do we keep non-citizens from voting in our elections without voter identification?????

        • ProudSCresident

          And name the ONE country where people can vote multiple times, and non-citizens can vote. Just one.

        • ProudSCresident

          I read the whole report, and it’s a bunch of bull. Most of us already have photo IDs in the form of drivers licenses. The whole premise is that we cannot AFFORD to enact photo voter ID cards because it costs too much money. Well, it would be money well spent! True IDs would eliminate all sorts of government fraud! Saying that voter fraud doesn’t exist is insane when we all have read stories of it! The truth is that only a few cases have been prosecuted because they don’t want to mess with the polls. Lack of voter ID is a public shame in this progressive country of ours.

        • Russell Lissuzzo

          WHAT UNIVERSE ARE YOU LIVING IN? Are you just typing this shit so you can get a rise?

    • LawtonOkie

      How dare you, for being a traitor and and a complete idiot and hypocrite. We’re not talking about Americans being able to vote, we’re talking about illegal aliens being able to vote.

      • woonsocket

        Read the complete article. The writer is claiming that liberals want illegals to vote. That’s a bunch of crap.

        • LawtonOkie

          Why don’t you read the whole article. The writer is claiming that New York Democratic State Senator, Gustavo Rivera wants to give illegals the right to vote. What part of that do you not understand, woonsocket? But, most liberals want to let illegals vote and get drivers licenses. Even you can’t deny that. You liberal/Marxists only want illegals to vote in order to get their votes.

    • Skeptical_Boomer

      What BS wheelsprocket. You are a typical phony and there is less than an ounce of truth in your three paragraphs of baloney.

      • woonsocket

        It IS indecent to prevent American citizens from voting.

      • frawgeyz

        All of you arguing with moonpocket are expecting results as if this person had the ability to comprehend the facts. ;) Not Possible! The intended response is to call attention to themselves. Do not expect an “ounce of truth” from such as these and you shall not find yourself amazed at the stupidity of their posts.

        • Skeptical_Boomer

          Do not expect results from a zombie but the urge to not let loonie’s BS stand is just too great.

        • frawgeyz

          lollllllllllllll I know! It is quite hard to ignore them.

    • Russell Lissuzzo

      OK. Let me guess; a poly-sci major at a community college where English is a second language and your being indoctrinated by a third-rate, at best, poly-sci indoctrinator.

  • John Schëar

    Citizens and only citizens should vote regardless of politics. Illegals can get on the next bus or as Obama would prefer a taxpayer plane and go to their home country and apply for citizenship as so many millions have done legally. Stop the whinning and crying.

  • DaveM

    No Bloody way! Not their country, they are illegals and they should be arrested and charged! Definitely a terrorist action in my world!

  • dntmkmecomoverther

    The senator should be impeached on charges of treason. Simple, case closed.

  • daisykmt

    If illegal aliens can break our immigration laws, then by that reasoning, can’t anyone break a law of THEIR choosing, as well? Of course not! We are a nation of laws, and contrary to what adolescents might say, laws (rules) are NOT made to be broken. Every lawmaker within the sound of Sen. Rivera’s voice should have immediately voiced his or her outrage at his suggestion. These liberals / democrats feel so emboldened with the current administration!

    • Russell Lissuzzo

      The phrase regarding laws and a nation are just words now, the hoard has finally destroyed the only saving grace(AMERICA) from GOD after 100+ years of attacks and the real destroyers that support face-boy and his gaggle of human debris, especially buffalo-butt are elated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Don’t forget “alien”, although libs are offended at that word.

        I enjoy offending those nuts anyway, so I use the word as often as I can.

  • johnright61

    What is it about the word “Illegal” that these dumb asses not understand???

    • Sunshine Kid

      It is not that they don’t understand the word, it is that they don’t want to ACKNOWLEDGE the word.

  • johnright61

    There should be a thorough background check on this N.Y. state senator to see if he is “illegal”…..

    • Sunshine Kid

      Any traitor is an illegal by definition.

  • 2War Abn Vet

    One Dem just admitting what all Dems have been working for.

  • nimbii

    Illegals with voting rights is of course, the next Progressive step to fundamentally transforming the United States of America.

    After all, what good is giving illegals public assistance if they can’t vote (Democratic)?

    Use emotional language to force the issue to the level of feeling, we sure don’t want people thinking about this.

    If illegals were voting Republican, you can bet this irreverent political hack and his ilk, would be on the border in battle fatigues and an AK-47 on each hip to keep them out.

    This was Khrushchev plan the Soviet Union was trying to implement. Who would have thought it would come packaged on a silver platter with Dems getting votes and RINOs getting cheap labor?

    Who protects us from our government? Hopefully, elections and the Second Amendment.

    • daisykmt

      Excellent post! I totally agree with what you said!

  • [email protected]

    Great idea! There is no Democreeps in that camp!

  • Raul Jimenez

    All the enemies of the USA from outside have to do is to sit back and wait for the “Enemies from Within” (democrats/Illegal Aliens) to finish their job.

  • Raul Jimenez

    Another traitorous Puerto Rican like that other rat Luis Gutierrez from Chicago……they want to do to the USA what they did to Puerto Rico. So many residents have left the island over the years that there are a million more Puerto Ricans living in the mainland United States (4.9 million as of 2011) than in Puerto Rico (3.7 million).
    Puerto Rico’s unemployment rate is above 15%, more than double the 7.3% in the mainland, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
    Last month, Standard & Poor’s announced it had cut Puerto Rico’s credit rating to junk status as the U.S. commonwealth faces $70 billion in debt, including the debt from its utility companies.

  • Dennis

    Let’s see here, what am I missing? Here in Mexifornia, a BLUE STATE, (and I do mean BLUE) NO I.D. is required to vote! You just waltz on in to the polling place, give your name & address and Voila, sign and vote! See below (not on all forms) which should say, “not on MOST forms!”
    How about this, registration made easy!!!!!

    You must provide the following information on the Voter Registration Form:
    Your full name – first, middle, last.
    Your complete residence address – not a post office box or a place of business.
    The address where you get your mail (if different from your residence) – this may be a post office box.

    Your complete date of birth – month/day/year.

    Your California drivers’ license number (or identification card number) or the last four digits of your Social Security Number (SSN). If you do not include this information you will be required to provide identification the first time you vote.
    The name of the state in the U.S.A. or foreign country where you were born (not on all forms).

    Your political party preference – you may check “No, I do not wish to register with a political party” if you wish.

    The address at which you were last registered to vote (if any).

    The language in which you prefer to receive election materials – language choices will vary by county.

  • RevG

    Rivera deserves to be arrested and sent to a prison in CUBA.

    • daisykmt

      Thank you for your military service to our country!

  • joshuasweet

    I thought that was how it worked already no identification required and a concerted effort to prevent them from being required by the democrats.

  • Sunshine Kid

    The State Senator Gustavo Rivera should be charged with treason, aiding and abetting invaders of our country. This is the bottom line: They are not citizens and HAVE NO RIGHTS.

    • Zolicon

      All Humans have Rights no mater where they live.

      • daisykmt

        Non citizens do not have the right to vote in a country of which they are not a legal resident.

        • Sunshine Kid

          I’ve been a legal resident in ten countries over my lifetime. Not one of them allowed me to vote.

        • daisykmt

          And you didn’t expect them to. Sounds like you have that rare commodity—common sense!

        • Zolicon

          Not having the right to Vote is a blessing in My opinion.

      • Sunshine Kid

        Yes, the right to a fair trial being one of them. Not the right to vote, to petition the government, nor the right to act like a citizen.

        • Zolicon

          I agree with You about the right to a fair trial and the rest I disagree with You on.

      • Russell Lissuzzo

        You are right-those that are given by GOD not those defined by a lowly group of marxists from UN and (UW Madison -type socialist/government cronies) and an array of other indoctrination centers supported-stolen/redistributed by the government via your hard-earned income . The real “human rights” violators are the Country’s they came from and the socialist/communists in this country who are using the small children as the “emotional hook” as no doubt planned by bambam, et al alinsky, ayres, jones, etc., . Find out for yourself but I believe the males ages 14-17 are approximately 60% of the number of current invaders to the USA, the overwhelming majority are the street foot soldiers of some of my most favorite human debris, MS13; and undoubtedly supported, reinforced and armed in California by the Mexican brown-shirts- la raza. If you don’t believe that one of those P’s O S wouldn’t enjoy cutting your throat and raping your wife just for snicks; my condolences, in advance, on your untimely demise.
        Understand; this is the “civilian military force” with the same funding ( does anyone really think that just to kick-start this crap is going to cost $2Billion), the same latitude and the same power as the US Military that bambam told us he was putting together.

        • Zolicon

          Thank You and agreed.

    Rivera says, “that it’s an injustice not allowing 3 million illegals to vote.” Well, it’s a far greater injustice to many more millions of American citizens to have these illegals vote and break our laws!

    • woonsocket

      Rivera is an idiot. It’s a mockery to those who apply for legal status and wait their turn.

    • Russell Lissuzzo

      Remember what the punk-ass black panther garbage did with voter intimidation? That Bullshit on video will look like a tea party with Mother Teresa when …………………..

  • Joe Lineman

    rivera you are 51 cards short of a full deck. Only in new York would there be 3 million illegal aliens and we cant round them up and deport them when they come to pick up their voter cards

    • woonsocket

      Good strategy. It’s similar to smoking out criminals who are notified that they won a prize. They show up to get their prize and it turns out to be a set of handcuffs.

  • Russell Lissuzzo

    OK, so not one person has even noticed over the last, at least 20 years, that this bullshiy was coming? The socialist/communist Unions have been floundering for years and the hitler/stalin/mao type tactics employing the atypical union goon/thug enforcers are not quite as effective as they used to be when g meany; that stinking, rotten POS was head thug of afl-cio; of course the current POS , small dick trumka, friend to the islamo-fascist and other groups that despise America giving union dues money (Big Time) to the “arab spring” human debris, but hey; what’s a few million between brothers of the same mother; a dog or a hog, can’t figure out which animal is their [collective] mother, they all look similar.
