The Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) filed a lawsuit against Washington, DC’s new law that gives non-U.S. citizens the right to vote in city elections. DC passed the measure last October, and this week it goes into effect after Congress failed to overturn it.
The IRLI argues that the law “automatically dilutes the votes of U.S. citizens on a massive scale,” violates the “fundamental constitutional right to vote of the plaintiffs,” and voids their “equal protection of the law.” The law enfranchises roughly 42,000 noncitizens, including foreign diplomats, allowing them to vote in DC elections. This means that Chinese and Russian diplomats would be allowed to vote in our nation’s capital elections. Talk about a Trojan Horse.
