Silent as New York City adds 800,000 non-citizens to voter rolls, Delgado votes to diminish what it means to be an American citizen

Red Hook, NY - As New York City adds 800,000 non-citizens to the voting rolls, yesterday in Washington, DC Antonio Delgado diminished what it means to be an American citizen with his vote against an amendment to the Voting Rights Act.

“Yesterday, we called on Antonio Delgado to make his position clear on the New York City law allowing non-citizen voting and today we learned that he voted no on an amendment that reaffirms that voting is a right reserved to citizens” said Molinaro. House Resolution 866 recognized that "allowing illegal immigrants the right to vote devalues the franchise and diminishes the voting power of United States citizens.” "Why won't Delgado be truthful with the voters of the Hudson Valley about his support on allowing non-citizens to vote in our New York elections?" asked Molinaro.

Concluded Molinaro, “Where in the world is Antonio Delgado?"
