No, American born voters of any sex, race, gender, ethnicity.  I never said that it was pushed in the recent stimulus.  But it’s been pushed at the state level for years.  It’s only a matter of time before it’s pushed nationally.

A Maryland city voted Tuesday night to enfranchise noncitizens, the latest in a growing effort to expand immigrant voting rights.

With a tie-breaking vote from the mayor, the City Council in College Park approved the measure to allow undocumented immigrants, student visa holders and residents with green cards to vote in local elections, The Washington Post reports.

Regardless, I tend to agree with Andrew Cuomo.  Cuomo, on WAMC, says there are "downsides" to voting by mail: "It's a harder system to administer, and obviously it's a harder system to police writ large. People showing up, people actually showing ID, is still the easiest system to assure total integrity."

I didn't see this thread at first, so excuse me for not responding to it for some time.

I helped the same mayor get elected, actually. But I disagree with him on this. What's the point of citizenship in any country if anyone who shows up can affect your elections?
DON'T BLAME ME, I VOTED FOR OPUS & BILL!

He had apparently been offered a spot at a halfway house here in town, the "Bridges to New Life Society". 

 

What ?

Ok "offered a spot" sounds like they unilaterally reached out to him, ie. made an offer.  Reading the response from the institution in question it is closer to a necessary accommodation.

“I was contacted by an advocate for Bernardo, for lack of a better term, out of Ontario and she requested information about Bridges and asked if we would be able to work with a person like Paul Bernardo," Churchill said, adding later that the context of the letter he. wrote in response wasn’t “we’d love to have him” rather, “we wouldn’t run away.”

“Our mandate is we believe everybody should be treated equally. They have to be able to put their past behind them so we work with them…. I don’t care what you did in the past, I care what you do in the future.”

Churchill said they’ve never turned anyone away but a letter from a high-profile criminal the likes of Bernardo is unusual. They would have worked with him and there would have been checks and balances in place to ensure community safety.

----------------------

So, all of this would assume Bernardo were granted parole first and needed somewhere to go.

All of this being said, I would be maximally creeped out by hearing this.  My friend lived in Montreal and discovered Karla was involved with a school on her block.  Bleah.

He is never being granted parole.
