D.C. Judge Upholds Law Allowing Illegals to Vote in Municipal Elections – American Faith

A federal judge in Washington, D.C. upheld a law that allows illegal aliens the ability to vote in municipal elections.

Obama appointed U.S. District Judge for the District of Columbia Amy Berman Jackson, dismissed a lawsuit filed by a conservative group challenging the Local Resident Voting Rights Act, passed by the DC Council in October 2022.

Report from Fox News:

In a 12-page opinion, Judge Amy Berman Jackson said the plaintiffs, a group of U.S. citizen voters represented by the Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI), lacked standing to challenge the law because they could not demonstrate how they are harmed by noncitizens who vote and run for local office.

The complaint “does not include facts showing plaintiffs’ right to vote has been denied, that they have been subjected to discrimination or inequitable treatment or denied opportunities when compared to another group, or that their rights as citizens have been ‘subordinated merely because of [their] father’s country of origin,’” Jackson wrote.

“They identify nothing that has been taken away or diminished and no right that has been made subordinate to anyone else’s.”
