Approved voting privileges for illegals
Takoma Park, Maryland is the Berkeley of the east coast. Not long ago, the City Council established an immigrant sanctuary law, declared itself a nuclear-free zone and voted to call for the impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Cheney. The council approved the impeachment resolution 5 to 0, with two members absent.
With the encouragement of a cheering crowd, the council formally requested that the Montgomery County Council, the county executive, the Maryland legislature and the governor consider adopting similar resolutions.
Now, the town council has voted unanimously to reaffirm the town’s status as a “sanctuary city” where police and other municipal employees are forbidden to enforce federal immigration laws.
According to WTOPNews.com, the vote came two weeks after the council denied the police chief’s request for more flexibility in executing immigration warrants—only if police come upon previously deported illegal alien felons.
Mayor Phil “Sanctuary City” Gordon and his erstwhile Chief of Police, Jack “Lacky” Harris, would feel right at home in this community. Maybe they can influence the Phoenix City Council to follow the lead of Takoma Park, which actually allows residents who are not U.S. citizens to vote in municipal elections. Such a move would bolster those paltry vote totals that greased his re-election skids.
Maryland, granted a charter in 1632, was one of the original Thirteen Colonies. It was the seventh state to ratify the Constitution of the United States in 1788. Seems they now desire to secede.
