A federal judge on Friday upheld a Washington DC law that allows noncitizens – including illegal aliens – to vote in municipal elections.

US District Judge for the District of Columbia Amy Berman Jackson, an Obama appointee tossed a lawsuit filed by a conservative group challenging the Local Resident Voting Rights Act, passed by the DC Council in October 2022.

The law not only allows non-citizens and illegals to vote, it also permits noncitizens to run for office!

Judge Jackson said the lawsuit failed to demonstrate how the plaintiffs are harmed by illegals voting or running for office.

Fox News reported:

A federal judge on Thursday tossed a conservative legal group’s lawsuit against a controversial Washington, D.C., law that allows noncitizens — including illegal immigrants and foreign embassy staff members — to vote in municipal elections.

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.”
