NY wants to grant citizenship to illegals (video)

The Left enjoys rubbing their obese buns in the face of taxpaying citizens. And this latest mooning involves the state of NY, aka state of ignorance.

The Left would do anything to get new recruits. They are constantly at risk of being found out, and thus need people more ignorant than they to keep them in power.

This video showcases what’s being proposed.


As Business Week reports:

While Congress drags its feet on immigration reform, New York state lawmakers are mulling an immigration bill of their own: It would grant state citizenship to some non-citizen immigrants, including undocumented residents, allowing them to vote and run for office. Under the “New York is Home” Act, non-citizen residents who have proof of identity and have lived and paid taxes in the state for three years, could apply for legal status that would let some qualify some for Medicaid coverage, professional licensing, tuition assistance, and driver’s licenses, as well as state and local–but not federal–voting rights. The responsibilities of citizenship would also apply, including jury duty.

“It’s mind-boggling,” says Michael A. Olivas, a professor at the University of Houston Law Center who specializes in immigration law. “I don’t believe there’s ever been a serious attempt to codify so many benefits and opportunities.”

Democratic state Sen. Gustavo Rivera, who’s sponsoring the legislation, sees it as a precedent. “We have a bill here that could be a model of what we need to do across the country,” he says. Rivera acknowledges the bill “certainly will not pass this session,” comparing it instead to same-sex marriage, a cause which took years to travel from fringe to mainstream. But he expressed hope that the primary defeat of Republican House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, widely construed as a final nail in the coffin of near-term federal immigration reform, would create interest in state-level reforms like his. Democratic Assembly Member Karim Camara is introducing the same bill on the other side of the Capitol. Governor Andrew Cuomo’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
