One of the new darlings of The Left, Stacy Abrams, gave the Democrat’s response to President Trump’s State of the Union last night. This rising star on The Left is the same woman who said she “would not oppose” non-citizens voting.
(I challenge any American reading this to try to go vote in another country’s election and demand you should have the right to vote in their election because Reasons and Feelings.)
This has come up before with her unsuccessful bid for Georgia governor.
Margaret Hoover asked Democrat Stacey Abrams if she supports non-citizens voting in local elections.

Always ask yourself – what is the end game? Municipal elections now? Then a little more? Then a little more? Until citizenship means nothing.
This is what The Left wants. An open borders free-for-all.
This article explains her comments from last fall.
…when Abrams was taped giving a speech last week during a joint appearance with Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren in Jonesboro.
In an expansive prediction of how Democrats would sweep the country with a “blue wave,” Abrams said the following:
“The thing of it is, is that blue waves aren’t blue. . . . The blue wave is African-American. It’s white, it’s Latino, it’s Asian, Pacific Islander. It is disabled. It is differently abled. It is LGBTQ. It is law enforcement. It is veterans. It is made up of those who have been told they are not worthy of being here. It is comprised of those who are documented and undocumented. It is comprised of those who have been told they’re successful and those who have been left behind.”
Perhaps Abrams was just on automatic pilot, signaling her loyalty to identity politics and expressing solidarity with every possible segment of the electorate. There is nothing unusual about Democrats’ vowing to protect the “undocumented” (an inaccurate euphemism for illegal immigrants when some states give them driver’s licenses). But saying that a blue wave of Democrats will include “documented” and “undocumented” voters, as if those two categories were just two different ethnic groups with equal rights to the ballot, was astounding.
Abrams later said that she didn’t mean for “anyone who is not legally allowed to vote in the state of Georgia to be allowed to vote.” But read literally, her statement in fact implied that the distinction between “documented” and “undocumented” is meaningless when it comes to turning out the Democratic base.
I wonder why she didn’t bring this up in her list of talking points response last night?
