Eric Adams sits on the outer edges of the radical Left.

The Democrat has been criticized for chasing national headlines by pushing the most extreme measures within the woke agenda instead of addressing New York City’s violent crime crisis.

But New York City Mayor Eric Adams is in a panic after he got a second major reality check on this radical illegal immigration plan.

New York City has been one of many Democrat-controlled cities to be severely impacted by the ongoing Biden border crisis.

It was one of the first in America to declare itself a so-called “sanctuary city,” barring municipal services from being used to aid the identification and capture of illegal aliens residing there.

As the Biden border crisis continues to worsen as a result of President Joe Biden and Democrats’ failed open borders agenda, New York City Democrat Mayor Eric Adams and other radical left-wing politicians have been running even further to the Left on this issue.

As the popularity for these radical policies have plummeted, even from the Left’s own base, Adams has constructed a new plan that will protect him from being slammed on Election Day through being held accountable by voters for his anti-American positions.

The good news is that the plan, which has been written into law, has already been struck down in the courts… twice.

According to the New York Post, “a controversial New York City law that would have allowed 800,000 non-citizens, but legal residents, to vote in municipal elections was struck down as unconstitutional by a state appeals court Wednesday.”

The law, which has twice been declared to violate the New York State Constitution, as well as the Municipal Home Rule Law, was a bold play that would have expanded Adams’ voting base.

This policy would have insured Adams’ political future in the city as he continues running further Left on the issue of illegal immigration.

The Appellate Division’s 2nd Department’s 3-1 decision follows an appeal after the law was struck down by the Staten Island Supreme Court back in 2022.

“He ruled such a dramatic change violated the Municipal Home Rule Law, saying the council and mayor had failed to put the issue on the ballot for voters to decide,” reported the New York Post.

The debate over local voting laws incorporating non-citizens into the voting bloc has existed at the precipice of the Left working to capitalize on the existing southern border crisis.

The proposal follows a laundry list of radical left-wing policies to ensure protection from political ramifications for their dedication to a radical agenda regarding illegal immigration.

These proposals have included the distribution of driver’s licenses, as well as debit cards filled with as much as $15,000 in American taxpayer money, to illegal aliens.

These proposals have faced a great amount of backlash, even from within New York City itself.

The Rep. Nicole Malliotakis (R-NY) cheered on the court’s decision to affirm the lower court’s ruling that struck down the law.

“There is nothing more important than preserving the integrity of our election system,” said Malliotakis in a recent statement. “And in today’s age, the government should be working to create more trust in our elections, not less.”

“The right to vote is a sacred right given only to United States citizens,” the Congresswoman added. “It is my hope that left wing lawmakers stop pushing these unconstitutional and reckless measures that dilute the voices of American citizens.”

The city’s Law Department has indicated that they are not quitting on trying to reverse the strikedown.

“We’re reviewing the court’s decision and evaluating next steps,” a department spokesman said in response to Adam’s failure to overturn the Staten Island court’s decision.
