This simply isn't true, undocumented persons will not be able to vote as the requirements to register are:

- Be a United States citizen;
- Be 18 years old by December 31 of the year in which you file this form (note: you must be 18 years old by the date of the general, primary or other election in which you want to vote);
- Resident of this state and the county, city or village for at least 30 days before the election;
- Not be in prison or on parole for a felony conviction (unless parolee pardoned or restored rights of citizenship);
- Not be adjudged mentally incompetent by a court;
- Not claim the right to vote elsewhere.

And the bill has no provisions regarding detention, incarceration or any other form of detainment.

The point is the animal that killed Ms. Carolina was a bad dude and his citizenship status has nothing to do with that.


1. if they are already here illegally what's to stop them from checking the box claiming they are a US citizen and registering to vote? --- NOTHING
2. he was here illegally after being deported twice, his status has everything to do with her being dead at his hands.



What? Checking a box is not how we prove our citizenship in this country. We have these things called Social Security Cards and Birth Certificates. Citizenship status not on your drivers license and at voting polls you're typically required to bring two forms of ID one of which is those documents that "undocumented" people wouldn't have.

2. he was here illegally after being deported twice, his status has everything to do with her being dead at his hands.

Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer, John Wayne Gacy, Richard Ramirez... Please explain what their citizenship status had to do with the murders they committed or is it you just prefer you killers who kill in the united states to be born here?

You should probably try getting your voter registration requirements from the state in question and not some non-profit from Santa Monica, California. Notice the .gov... that's official

Gentrification coming way too fast in Jersey City neighborhood | Opinion
#4
Newbie
Newbie


Chris Gadsden the former Jersey City Ward B Councilman took the time to give his take on the status of gentrification on the Westside on JC, where I also happen to be a resident.

By Chris Gadsden

Dear 400 Claremont LLC,

I grew up at 357 West Side Ave, on the same side of the street as Diamond Auto Body. I live down the street from Diary Queen and around the corner from Carmine.

I have concerns about the gentrification of the area. I believe your project expedites the process of removing the original inhabitants of the community with our new neighbors. Not saying I have anything against our new neighbors, I am just advocating for a more inclusive community where everyone will benefit from the development that is happening in our community.

According to Jersey Diggs, your project will have retail and restaurant space along with a fitness center, coffee bar, golf simulator, rooftop community garden, and private bowling alley. Your project calls for 631 units to be included along with 12,044 square feet of retail space and 279 parking spaces, according to the notice. The Real Deal also reported last month that the $120 million project is being referred to as “The Element,” it is expected to benefit from opportunity zone funding, and there are also plans for a “saltwalter pool” at the development.

I have a problem with the exclusiveness of the project. Your private bowling lanes, day care center, and market rate rent tell the surrounding neighborhood that they can’t afford to live around you and that they are not wanted.

You probably have your general contractors all ready to go, they know who they are going to hire to get the project complete, so there is probably no need to ask about how many local people will help develop the project because you don’t need them.

I think you are a selfish developer because you build projects without the need of the community being considered. Who are you selling this project to? How does this community benefit from this development? What is the community give back? Being that you don’t have affordable housing in the project, what are you doing to address this need in Jersey City? I already know the answer, you don’t have to. As a community leader, I am asking you to care.

I am asking that our leaders: planning, City Council, MUA, and Traffic and Engineering work on doing a thorough parking and sewer study of the Bayfront, NJCU West Campus, Culver/440, Droyers Point, Waters Street redevelopment zone because with increased density comes additional infrastructure concerns that cannot be addressed on a project by project basis. The NJ Transit Light Rail is scheduled to be closed for a year. How does your study correlate or (weigh) effects what’s being done at the light rail stations.

Based off the requirements in the redevelopment plan, you’ve met your parking requirement. But moving forward, Fields Construction is planning on building another 400 plus units down the street towards 440. Close to 1,000 new vehicles will need more than an extended stretch of Yale Avenue to accommodate the parking needs of the community. I say you build parking that will take at least 75% of the parking in your projects. Then as people habits change, public transportation improves, and the area becomes more bike friendly, then you can phase out the parking, maybe sell parking to the public to make a profit.

Overall I think you are another developer who will put profit over the original people. You have to sell a product to a group of people who are not here yet. “Close accessibility to transportation to New York, in an up and coming area of Jersey City.” “Why pay those huge rent in Manhattan, when you can move to a community and watch the original people in it leave, so that you can make it yours.”

Congrats, it took you only 5 posts to come to the truth about Yvonne!. She's terrifying.

On the other point, you seem to not know there are vast numbers of US workers who do not normally get paid on holidays. And that ignores the increasing numbers of "gig" or self-employed. Your idea is simplistic, reminds me of all the healthcare arguments from people who have always gotten it through work and have no understanding of what it costs.

*** This one is NOT up to employers choice. What I am putting forth by law workers are able to take the day unpenalized regardless of voting or not, if you vote you get paid so obviously it is in your best interest to perform your civic duty.

And that ignores the increasing numbers of "gig" or self-employed.
*** Am I wrong in surmising that you or someone close to you is a "gig" worker, which is why that point is so near and dear to you. Simply put, I haven't mentioned gig workers because they do not fit into any part this. One of the benefits of being 1099 is that your time is your own. You work when you want, you budget your time for completing whatever job(s) you've taken on. The polls open at 6 am get your ass up to go vote, figure it out. The gig workers have no excuse not to participate time or monetary related other than "I don't want to". It may sound harsh but ultimately it is the truth.

our idea is simplistic, reminds me of all the healthcare arguments from people who have always gotten it through work and have no understanding of what it costs.
*** This is quite a personal attack to which I am not going to respond with negativity because I enjoy your opposing opinion and would like to keep that going on other topics as well. However, I will say this... I wouldn't say things like this from the comfort of Hamilton Park not knowing the life of the person on the other side of the keyboard/monitor. Brew, if ever you want I can take you on a tour of a life of poverty which I am quite certain you wouldn't believe existed in the United States let alone New Jersey give or take 4 miles away from the beauty of Hamilton Park.

D_Nasir_McClain, only voters can run for office. If you are a nonvoter but not a criminal, you cannot run for office. So in prison, it would be easy to get petitions to be placed on the ballot. It would be a mockery of the system.

***Please stop, you are wrong again. Ones status as a votes has no bearing on the ability to run for elected office. The issue as to whether a convicted felon can run for office varies by state some enforce or some do not.

In terms of the ridiculous scenario you put forth with prisoners holding office (I almost couldn't stop laughing while typing that nonsense) that would be impossible. Let's say the sum of all your "fears" were to happen and an inmate somehow successfully got themselves on a ballot and the somehow managed to win an election, they could never hold the position as by the nature of incarceration they wouldn't be able to fulfill the duties and obligations of said position which is the basic requirement of all elected offices.

The scariest thing I have gotten out of this exchange is the fact that you do have the right to vote. You are clearly a part of the upper echelon of the uninformed, do not understand how the basics of government work and seem to be an ardent denier of facts even when placed at your feet.

Yes, that worked out well for them. Grown-ups hold their nose and vote for the least bad candidate rather than stay home like petulant children.

The problem with your "holiday" idea is that increasing numbers of Americans do not hold traditional "jobs" at all. The gig economy and numerous low paid jobs do not give paid holidays, so you're taking a day's pay from them.


*** I think you may have misinterpreted something here. I'm not taking anything away from "low paid jobs", if you take the day and vote... you get paid. If you don't plan on voting then don't take the day. I'm not shutting down the country for a day. I am quite certain the market will set itself where companies will offer staff what I think would be two floating holidays to those who vote and still come in and only one for those who do not vote but come in.

D_Nasir_McClain, the 26th amendment was passed in 1971 and I was already out of high school. That happened to lowered to voting age from 21 to 18 due to the Vietnam War.

**The catalyst is irrelevant, the 26th made voting a RIGHT to all citizens 18 years of age and over... its the last vote related amendment after a century or so of many. FYI, I only say the 26th Amendment because it was the last one not to say voting hadn't already been a RIGHT, just using the 26th because it covers all citizens in the current interpretation of citizenship.

People who vote also have the right to run for office. I don't think people want murders and drug dealers on the ballot.

**Ummmm, if the people vote for them... then that is exactly who they wanted on the ballot. Isn't that how voting works or did I miss something?

Protecting the right to vote is similar to protecting anything we enjoy such as paved roads even if you don't own a car. The first ten amendments are our natural rights and even convicts have those rights.

** I don't even know what to do with this paved road analogy however "The first ten amendments are our natural rights and even convicts have those rights " are you saying the US constitution only consist of the "Bill of Rights", if you believe that I'd say you graduated from high school way, way before 1971 given that the 11th Amendment came along in 1795. In all seriousness, every amendment in the constitution is a RIGHT who ever/ where ever you obtained that other perspective from... never speak to them again as you have been led astray.

Just an FYI, In general, the first ten amendments, known collectively as the Bill of Rights, offer specific protections of individual liberty and justice and place restrictions on the powers of government. The majority of the seventeen later amendments expand individual civil rights protections.

***cannot take credit for the FYI, it is an excerpt taken from one of my old constitution law books***

I understand your thought however forcing someone to vote is actually "Anti-American" and completely goes against our brand of democracy. For some, not voting is their way of protesting the choice of candidates in a race for office, i.e. all the Bernie supporters who just couldn't bring themselves to vote for Hillbilly, I mean Hilary, sorry. I think (and please share your thoughts) we should actually incentivize participation wherein "Voting Day" is a National Holiday therefore all everyone has the day off but employers should only be required to pay if an employee can prove exercising their civic duty something like jury duty.

I would either that school district should be sued or maybe you were absent the day the XXVI Amendment was covered in class. Here's an abridged but very accurate synopsis "The Twenty-Sixth Amendment provides, “The right of citizens of the United States, who are 18 years of age or older, to vote, shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or any state on account of age.” It prohibits states from discriminating among voters based on age, for people who are at least 18 years old, and grants Congress power to “enforce” that prohibition through “appropriate legislation.” The Twenty-Sixth Amendment is the last in a series of amendments enacted over more than a century expanding constitutional protection for voting rights. Like many other amendments, it was enacted as a direct repudiation of a U.S. Supreme Court ruling".

The block in front of the Barge Inn has always been sketchy? how so? And how long is your version of "always"?

Also, you are speaking of the block that has up until recently consisted of 2 yoga studios, a bespoke and Abbey's Pub, where the sketchiest action is Thursday night karaoke? If so, I totally agree, all those 20 and 30 something white women in spandex are definitely up to nefarious activity. I don't trust them!
