“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to wreck America’s election integrity.”

Yes, my friends, it’s time to change the (in)famous phrase at the base of the Statue of Liberty. Open borders are not just a recipe for replacing native-born workers with cheap foreign labor and trading assimilation for multicultural militancy. They’re about undermining the historic nation through devalued citizenship and sabotage of the precious right to vote.

Over the weekend, New York City’s Democrat mayor Eric Adams threw his support to a City Council-approved measure to allow an estimated 800,000 local noncitizens to participate in local elections. The newly minted voters would include green-card holders, temporary visa holders, including H-1B workers mostly from China and India, F-1/Optional Practical Training foreign university students with employment authorization, and potentially unknown masses of illegal alien so-called Dreamers.

These new voters will be granted enormous influence over vital local matters pertaining to everything from education to taxes to crime and only need to show they’ve been in the city for a measly 30 days. It doesn’t matter that these noncitizens will largely have no attachment at all to America as their permanent home but instead see it as a temporary rest stop, a cash cow, or, at worst, hostile territory.

Adams proclaimed in a statement that while he had “some concerns” about the bill, he now believes “allowing the legislation to be enacted is by far the best choice, and look forward to bringing millions more into the democratic process.”

“Democratic process,” of course, is a euphemism for “Democrat Party.”

The demographic overwhelming of our elections through both illegal alien amnesty and unfettered legal immigration is straight out of the left-wing playbook. What’s happening in the Big Apple is not new, nor is it a “conspiracy theory.” As I’ve long reported since my early days in newspaper journalism in Southern California, there’s been a steady erosion of voter integrity at the hands of open-borders politicians and operatives for decades.

Since 1991, six municipalities in Montgomery County, Maryland, have allowed noncitizens (with no distinction between legal and illegal aliens) to cast ballots in local elections: Garrett Park, Takoma Park, Somerset, Chevy Chase, Martin’s Additions and Barnesville. An additional five Maryland municipalities, two Vermont towns, two U.S. territories and San Francisco (school board elections only, for now) have also opened their voting booths to noncitizens.

And don’t forget: In 1993, the federal “Motor Voter” law “expanded the franchise” for political expediency — exacerbating the perilous trend of lowering the safeguards for voting that continues to undermine the value of U.S. citizenship today. The nationwide granting of driver’s licenses to illegal aliens paved the way for untold election theft.

Former Immigration and Naturalization Service Commissioner Alan C. Nelson’s warning nearly 30 years ago when Takoma Park passed its noncitizen voting referendum remains more trenchant than ever:


“In many countries of the world, an alien is always an alien. In our country, we are proud that our laws and social policies encourage aliens of all races and cultures to become citizens. In recent years, however, an increasing number of aliens have not pursued citizenship. … This trend is disturbing, because it could seriously affect the assimilation process immigrants have pursued in this nation for 200 years. … This important value of becoming a citizen is lost if an alien can vote without becoming a citizen. Any legal resident alien can become a U.S. citizen in five years. That is not an unreasonable time to wait to be able to participate in our democracy. … The five-year wait emphasizes the value of citizenship as a requirement to vote and to becoming a full member of the community. … If local voting by noncitizens is allowed, state and federal voting could be next. Either there is a policy basis for noncitizens to vote, or there is not. If we open the door, it cannot be closed halfway.”

It should be as glaring as Lady Liberty’s torchlight that election reform begins with a complete, total and immediate immigration moratorium.

  1. Why should we expect “aliens” to assimilate racist violent American culture? One could hope that the “aliens” improve America by fixing what is broken. Plainly today the American system unfettered has led to the largest wealth disparity in US history. Unless something changes, that wealth disparity will grow. One can hope that alien voters support steep wealth taxes and economic redistribution. Wealth disparity caused the Great Depression. Wealth disparity is the cause of much of the violence and unrest we see today. America’s best hope is that the alien vote can overwhelm the right wing vote and bring real change.

  2. Aliens overwhelmingly vote left, which means they vote for big government and handouts.

    Big government loves showering aliens with just enough handouts from the public purse to ensure their loyalty. These handouts trickle up to the wealthy, increasing wealth disparity.

    More people = more poverty and wealth disparity.

    Open borders is turning America into Brazil North. There is no progressive utopia at the end of the road.

  3. What about nonwhite LEGAL IMMIGRANTS and their nonwhite US born geneline?…Are they not a highly racialized nonwhite Democratic Party Voting Bloc that nullified the Native White Voting Bloc on Nov 3 2020?

    Dear Michelle

    Would you like to answer this question?

    • Agree: ruralguy
  4. The Immigration Reform Movement were,and still are, a bunch of White Liberal Cucks who are ok with nonwhite LEGAL Immigrants coming to America….breeding….and enthusiastically voting the Historic Native Born White American Working Class into a white racial minority within the borders of America…

  5. @beavertales

    Nonwhite LEGAL immigrants and their US born nonwhite geneline vote overwhelmingly Democratic…..and if they started to vote Republican….to the delight of the Bush Family…they would still be able to vote the Native Born White American Working Class into a violently persecuted white racial minority within the borders of American…

    You provide no evidence for your assertions, which is not surprising because there is none.

    Our nation is already bankrupt at a Federal level, and rapidly becoming so in the most liberal states. Source: US Treasury data, and state data.***

    If “wealth disparity” caused the Great Depression, why:
    * was the bubble possible in the first place? (Think: brand new gov’t “easy money” strategy that artificially inflated available money)
    * was there a Great Depression, when actually it was the *wealthy* who initially lost, not the rest? It was only about ten percent of adults at most who lost their shirts in the great crash that signaled the end of the bubble.
    * did Hoover’s attempts to provide massive new money to the masses, hurt rather than help? (Yes, it was Hoover who started the new atrocious gov’t interventions that continued in multiplied fashion with FDR)
    * did FDR’s attempts to further help the masses through the New Deal, actually hurt rather than help?
    * did the overall depression not end until outside factors force a change in the massively regulated economy (ie WW2)?

    If “wealth disparity” is the cause of violence and unrest today… why was our nation able to live in peace in the past, even with such disparities? Could it be perhaps that this has been violence incited by those who do not understand how wealth is created?

    India has rapidly become a nation of entrepreneurs — with the largest middle class on the planet — not because wealth has been redistributed, but because millions have learned that anybody can create wealth. Anybody can escape poverty by spending less than they earn. Example:

    An Indian mentor of mine introduced community-based savings and community-based micro-enterprise. ZERO outside finances involved… These “Sanghams” involved typically eight women, who earned only about ten rupees a day (barely more than US\$1 at the time.) Each woman contributed one rupee daily to the kitty. At the end of a year, those few thousand rupees were enough for one family in the group to buy their way out of oppressive poverty imposed by the unethical landowners who kept them in perpetual debt.

    Enough. Most likely I am wasting my breath.

    One footnote:

    *** For example: USDebtClock dot org — note the level of unfunded liabilities vs total national assets. Present value of each demonstrates that legally required future benefit streams, for which there is no known source of revenue to cover, is so huge that every woman, man and child in the USA today, needs to already have close to \$500,000 in the bank ready to hand to the IRS— today — to cover those future costs. That’s not an issue of “wealth distribution.” And adding more beneficiaries only makes it worse.

  7. The open intent of post-1965 Immigration Policy is to import nonwhite LEGAL Immigrants….so that nonwhite LEGAL immigrants can:enthusiastically vote the Native White Working Class into a violently persecuted white racial minority within the borders of post-white America…..

    And don’t you ever ever forget this when discussing US Immigration Policy…ever….

  9. ruralguy says:

    Emma Lazarus who wrote those infamous words “give me your poor, your poor, huddled masses ..” was a Jewish woman who was advocating for the mass immigration of Russia and Eastern Europe’s Jewish population into America. Like all extremist political slogans, these resounding words masks a deeply ugly intent. She was a self serving radical whose words helped lead to mass migration of hordes who’ve destroyed our culture, glorified perverted morals, and preyed on our easily influenced population. The left has been pulling down our statutes and history. It’s time to pull down theirs.

    Here in The OC, the legal immigrants from NE Asia and their descendants are mostly decent and sane. Hard-working and conscientious and smart. They self-segregate residentially, but so what. Probably someone will hate and troll me now, saying they took American jobs, so I hereby hate and troll myself, to save you the trouble; you would be right. But on balance I welcome them; they remind me of the America I grew up in, a zillion years ago.

  12. This article encapsulates both good and bad immigration. Argentines invited and incentivized educated Europeans to move there, turning Argentina from a backwater to a First World nation.

    Then in the 1930s, planned White immigration stopped and unplanned hordes of impoverished third worlders began flooding in (sounds familiar.)

  13. Bro43rd says:
    @Harry Huntington

    Yeah because they’ve managed to vote “good” non-right systems in all the countries they’ve come from.

    If voting made any difference it would be illegal. Democracy, 2 wolves and a sheep deciding what’s for dinner.

  14. Every expansion of voting rights has created a constituency for bigger government (“Now it’s our turn!”). We should disenfranchise women; or men. Blacks; or Whites.

    Government workers — unionized or not — retirees, contractors, and their financial dependents should be disenfranchised. Also, private sector types who sign-up for material, special interest, government benefits. Register your kid for school, surrender all of the voter ID cards in your household.

    The voting age needs to be raised to 35. We need to impose a mandatory, voting retirement age: 60 sounds about right. We also need to impose a strict, three even-year, election limit on voters. (As things stand nowadays, I see no reason why the voting age shouldn’t be set at age six or so, i.e. when a voter is tall/strong enough to reach/pull the lever.)

    Abolish convenience voting. No more mail-in ballots (be they solicited or not), early voting (i.e. sometimes even from the grave), voting from a US embassy, etc. If you’re deployed, on vacation, (e.g. away from your designated polling station on Election Day), tough. No mandated time off to vote. Reinstate the venerable poll tax, though in a fashion that progressives should love: An odd-year, March ballot costs \$50. A presidential ballot costs \$800, and so forth. Redistribute the money to non-registereds.

  15. Let me attempt to relate something here to whoever can see my limited account.
    We and I mean most of us here in America are seeing something that is pure and unheard of evil in our country today. While this is something on many levels and areas, this one focus is on the allowing of mass murder of hundreds of thousands of people in the country as well as the world.
    IF you have people sick and literally dying from an illness, ANY illness and you as a medical professional, a HOSPITAL, or government allow and not only allow but PROMOTE treatments to these people on a FALSE narrative or due to a political agenda in a nation, THAT my friends is MASS MURDER.
    Example: A person goes to an emergency room to be treated.
    The person has the virus and is starting to have viral pneumonia. After 9 hours, they are told they yes have these things, but hey, here’s some Tylenol. Nothing we can do and want to send you home with NOTHING! So you ask, what about monoclonal antibody treatments? They say sorry, we don’t have anymore. The GOVERNMENT has bought it all and LIMITING which states get how much of it. You ask, what about treating me with hydrox regimine or ivermectin? They say the same thing all over the country, at MOST hospitals! We CAN’T give you that, “It’s NOT APPROVED FOR COVID TREATMENT. Do you get this????
    So what happens next. They send you home, you most likely develop sever pneumonia end up back in that hospital when you end up and a ventilator, or you stay home, and maybe DIE! Or hope your lucky enough to survive.
    I don’t care HOW you slice it this can NOT be disputed! THIS IS MASS MURDER to allow this to happen. This is NOT following the science! It is NOT humanitarian and in fact is the opposite.
    Then hospital are REFUSING life saving transplants for those not vaccinated. Ronald McDonald’s house is now turning away help to children with leukemia because the are not vaxed. This is murder and absolutely unforgivable.
    Then you throw in a dose of if you are a white person, you go further down the list for treatment which is discrimination and RACIST! It is sudo genocide!
    So, you tell me, HOW do we allow this to continue in America or anywhere else for that matter? HOW do we just stand around and accept this as okay when it is anything but okay.
    If these treatments had been allowed from the START, we would not be where we are today and many, maybe even most would not have died.
    The scenario I described above is not hypothetical, it is real and one I have seen over and over. THIS is happening right now!
    What will you do?

    Even a partially effective dose of something like HCQ would have saved many lives…
    No it wasn’t a cure all, but it would have done more good than harm…..

    The avg age at death is still over 70, the obese still make of 80% of hospitalizations and death….
    For the 70+ there are pneumonia shots…..

    The Democrats in government (all levels) have done more harm than the covid itself….

  17. Biff K says:

    In a very large, very induustrial city, my neighborhood, populated largely by blue collar, UAW Poles, Ukrainians, Italians and a few Hunkies, there were the scattered white collar Protestant WASP’s, tightly wound, never seen “acting ethnic, ” and all that. As the city was getting turned over to radical anti-white ginger complected coloreds (after which it promptly circled the drain) which ones voted for the radical anti-white colored mayoral candidates (and proudly announced that they would?) – yup, the WASP’s. I guess it was part of acting “proper” c. 1972. Of course, they were the first to head out to distant suburbs. Hippocrates.
