A US House Republican has sounded the alarm after uncovering evidence of a “smoking gun” of a voter fraud scheme in New York City.
Rep. Nicole Malliotakis (R-NY) says she has exposed a plot to illegally register migrants to vote in the upcoming election.
Malliotakis' discovery has raised serious questions about the true motivation behind Democratic President Joe Biden's open borders agenda.
“On page 50 of this contract, there is an entire section devoted to voter registration,” Malliotakis said in a statement.
Malliotakis revealed that she and four other Staten Island Republicans obtained a copy of a city contract with a nonprofit.
The nonprofit was hired by New York City officials to run a Staten Island shelter.
The contract includes a stipulation that voter registration forms must be distributed to “asylum seekers.”
“We believe this is the smoking gun that proves what we've been saying all along: that the city intends to register non-citizens to vote.”

Malliotakis obtained the document through a state Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.
The contract in question, between the city and Homes for Homeless, governs the operation of the shelter at the site of a closed nursing home in Midland Beach.
According to Malliotakis, the contract includes a provision that the nonprofit will operate in accordance with the New York charter.
It states that the organization “must provide and distribute voter registration forms to all persons.”
Voter registration forms must be available in Spanish and Chinese so that migrants can clearly understand them, the document states.
Elsewhere, the nonprofit “shall not inquire about the immigration status of a client or potential client” unless it relates to the services in question.
It's unclear whether the language is standard in city contracts for housing and housing services, according to the New York Post.
Under city law, New York voters must be U.S. citizens, have been residents of New York City for at least 30 days, and be at least 18 years old before Election Day.
In December 2021, a measure mostly approved by the City Council opened the door for green card holders and other legal non-residents to choose to vote in local elections, though not in state or national races.
However, it was overturned by a Staten Island judge.
Supreme Court Justice Ralph Porzio issued a standing order blocking the law in June 2022.
However, the Democratic mayor of New York, Eric Adams, has appealed this sentence.
Malliotakis commented on the situation during an appearance on Fox Business.
I WILL SEE:
While it's unclear whether the language is standard in city contracts for housing and housing services, the city's Department of Social Services responded Sunday.
“These allegations are false and baseless,” the department said in a statement.
“DHS is legally required to include language around voter registration in host contracts and this guidance only applies to eligible clients who are citizens and would obviously not apply to asylum seekers welcomed”.
“They give you the voter registration of people who are here illegally, and as soon as they're here for 30 days, how come they're eligible to vote?” said state Rep. Sam Pirozzolo in comments to reporters.
“What is the first thing they will vote for? Better hotel rooms?” he joked.
“How do they even understand the American system of government?”
“There is nothing more important than preserving the integrity of our electoral system,” Malliotakis added in a statement.
“The right to vote is a sacred right granted only to citizens of the United States, and certainly not granted to those who crossed our border illegally into New York City last month.
“The city better not act in violation of the judge's ruling that struck down the non-citizen voting law that would have allowed 800,000 non-citizens with a green card or work authorization who have resided in New York City to vote for 30 days”.
