The NYT Pushing For Illegals To Vote

Written By BlabberBuzz | Sunday, 01 August 2021 16:45

Former Trump advisor Stephen Miller has grilled The New York Times over a guest article calling for non-citizens to be given the power to vote in US elections.

Miller - who has been credited with establishing President Trump's famously draconian immigration policies, including his Muslim ban - said: "The New York Times opinion piece is extraordinarily revealing for the mindset of the left - which is they want to erode and ultimately erase the very idea of American citizenship."

Speaking on Fox News, he proceeded: "Voting is not just a right. It's also a responsibility. You have to learn our country's history, its culture, its language, and its values to be able to make an informed decision about voting."

The "guest essay" - which was written by noncitizen Atossa Araxia Abrahamian - was issued Wednesday "as part of a series exploring bold ideas to revitalize and renew the American experiment."

In the article, Abrahamian - who praises from Switzerland, but now lives in Brooklyn - staked a claim for letting people living lawfully in America such as non-immigrant visa holders and people with green cards vote in US elections.

In her editorial, Abrahamian explained the types of noncitizens she thinks should be entitled to vote, including: "People with green cards, people here on work visas, and those who arrived in the country as children and are still waiting for permanent papers. This type of illegal immigrant is known as a 'dreamer'".

And in his interview with Fox News, Miller grabbed on to that final category, claiming The New York Times seemed to be driving for illegal immigrants to also vote in elections.

He stated: "Americans are Americans. Citizens are citizens and dreamers, so-called, are illegal immigrants... We deprive people of this country of their language, of their ability to be able to speak clearly, and to say: 'No, if you come here illegally you are not a citizen. You are not an American. You don't have the right to vote in our elections. You do not have the right to occupy American jobs.'''

Miller added: "These are not controversial thoughts. These are basic fundamental ideas to what it means to have and to keep a nation."

In the paper, Abrahamian wrote: "Nearly 15 million people living legally in the United States... don't have a say in matters of politics and policy because we — resident foreign nationals, or 'aliens' as we are sometimes called — cannot vote."

She staked a case for allowing noncitizens to be able to cast ballots, saying: "Allowing people to vote gives them even more of a sense of investment in their towns, cities, communities and country. There's a detachment that comes with not being able to vote in the place where you live."
