A city council in Maryland has voted in favor of allowing resident non-citizens such as illegal immigrants to participate in local elections.
The city council in College Park, home to the University of Maryland campus, has joined six other towns that allow green-card holders, illegal immigrants and other non-citizens to vote in local elections.
The decision was reached following a 4-3 council vote, which was initially scheduled last month but was postponed.
Dem College Park Mayor Patrick Wojahn, who was just busted for child porn, headed the effort:
“My goal is to keep the conversation tomorrow civil and productive,” Mayor Patrick Wojahn told the Washington Post ahead of Tuesday night’s city hall meeting. “I’m hoping that we won’t have the circus around it that we had last time.”
…….Beth Debrovsky, a resident who voted against the change, argued that only citizens should be allowed to vote as it is “constitutional.”
“Although you come up here and you say that there are hundreds of citizens and residents of College Park that are for this charter, I can tell you that there are thousands against it,” she said, according to Fox 5 DC. “Voting is a right of the citizens. It’s plain and clear. It’s constitutional. It’s also written at the state level and it also belongs at the local level.”
Maryland has broken the immigration laws. Can American citizens go to the countries of illegals and vote in their elections?

Dems were all for enforcing the immigration laws until illegals became their political tools.
