The City Council in New York City recently approved legislation that would allow approximately 800,000 non-citizens to vote in local elections. One of the several problems with this bill (which will become law because NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio has said he won’t veto it) is that it is clearly unconstitutional as to both the New York state constitution as well as our U.S. Constitution. It is highly likely the law will be immediately enjoined and then litigated in court where I believe it will be struck down.
