Liberals have lost their minds.

San Francisco becomes the first US city to grant illegal immigrants the right to vote.

From abc7news.com

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) — Monday the Department of Elections Issued Voter Registration Forms for non-citizens who are eligible to vote for members of the San Francisco Board of Education in the November 6th 2018 election. The measure passed in 2016 with a close vote of 54 percent to 46 percent following two failed previous attempts.

San Francisco is the first city in the state to allow non-citizens to vote in local elections.

“As a parent myself and a former member of the SF Board of Education it is critical that the voices of all parents are at the table particularly those that have historically been denied a voice in the process,” said Supervisor Sandra Lee Fewer who represents District 1.

“We want to give immigrants the right to vote,” said Supervisor Norman Yee who represents District 7.

This November will be the first election in which non-citizens can register to vote.

“Third time was a charm,” said San Francisco School Board member Matt Haney.
