First off all of your arguments are flawed and inaccurate.
It's not New York City, it's the town of Port Chester.
Secondly, Most voters were white, and there were always six white trustees even though Hispanics made up half the population and nearly a quarter of
the voters. Judge Stephen Robinson concluded the system violated U.S. law by diluting Hispanics' votes. (IT VIOLATED U.S. LAW)
I mean honestly did you not ready the actual article? Please re-read the article so that you fully understand that this is nothing new and it's done
as an equalizer not as a way to make the hispanic vote supreme. It also actually allows every citizen 6 votes... If per say you wanted to use your 6
votes for one candidate than you can do that, be you white, black, hispanic, or any other race.
Third, Illegal Immigrants can't vote! Illegal Immigrants can't vote... Even if they did create a fast track to citizenship they still wouldn't be
able to vote for Obama by 2012.
Fourth, ok lets say they are Illegal now, what if they did apply for citizenship and or fast track and became Legal Citizens... Would you still be
upset and raging and mad?
What is wrong with a person from another country applying for citizenship and becoming a citizen? Is his vote worthless? If he was a citizen he
would have to by law, pay taxes, follow the laws, help pay for your medicare and social security, help pay others medicaid and AFDC, help pay for the
bailouts and massive U.S. Debt, and more.
Honestly, this country was built on immigrants becoming citizens. And unless you are 100% full blooded Indian your family is a descendant of an
immigrant (unless they were kidnapped and made to work).
This country was founded and created by English Immigrants.
Now I do agree that they should come to the U.S. and do it the right way and the legal way. However, I had to point out that your arguments were
under false pretenses. I do understand your frustration, but unless we can find a real logical way of dealing with the problem all this could and
possibly will escalate to us the citizens of the United States losing more freedoms.
