‘Mind-boggling’: Dem wants law to give illegals the right to vote in state, local elections

A Democrat New York state lawmaker is dropping any fig leafs about the party’s stance on illegal immigrants.

He wants to give them the right to vote now in state and local elections – along with a whole menu of state benefits they’re not eligible for now, since they’re here illegally.

State Sen. Guesteva Rivera is the kind of lib Hispanic pol that must give sane Hispanic migraines. According to the Daily Caller, he said his proposed bill would make up for inaction by Congress.

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

In a BusinessWeek article, immigration law expert Michael Olivas, a law professor at the University of Houston called the bill unprecedented.

“It’s mind-boggling,” Olivas told the magazine. “I don’t believe there’s ever been a serious attempt to codify so many benefits and opportunities.”

That’s probably because it’s irresponsible, pandering and borderline insane.

(If Senator Rivera came home to find four Mexicans rifling through his bedroom looking for cash, he’d apparently decide to cook them dinner – then ask them what kind of cable package they’d like next month. “Given the failure of the front door lock, I have asked, ‘what else can I do?’”)

The good news: Even Rivera admits the  idea has zero chance of passing in New York. (There are still Republicans with power there, once you get out of the Five Boroughs).

The bad news: He says it’s only a first step. He said the proposed bill could be a model for other states to follow, and cites homosexual marriage as the template for success.

The worst news: Given how bananas Dems and their lefty fellow travelers really are, he might well be right about that.
