A U.S. House Republican has raised the alarm after uncovering “smoking gun” evidence of a voter fraud scheme in New York City.
Rep. Nicole Malliotakis (R-NY) says she’s exposed a plot to illegally register migrants to vote in upcoming elections.
The discovery by Malliotakis has raised serious questions about the true motivation behind Democrat President Joe Biden’s open border agenda.
“On page 50 of this contract, there is an entire section dedicated 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 NYC officials to run a Staten Island shelter.
The contract includes a stipulation that voter registration forms are to be distributed among “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 via 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 shuttered nursing home in Midland Beach.
According to Malliotakis, the contract includes a provision that the nonprofit will act in accordance with the NYC charter.
It states that the organization “shall provide and distribute voter registration forms to all persons.”
The voter registration forms are to be made available in Spanish and Chinese so they can be clearly understood by migrants, the document states.
In another portion, the nonprofit “shall not inquire about a client or potential client’s immigration status” unless it pertains to the services in question.
It is unclear if the language is standard in city contracts for shelter and housing services, according to the New York Post.
Under city law, NYC voters must be U.S. citizens, have been a New York City resident for at least 30 days, and be at least 18 years of age before Election Day.
In December 2021, a measure passed overwhelmingly by the City Council opened the door for green card holders and other legal non-residents to qualify to vote in local elections, although not in state or national races.
However, it was struck down by a Staten Island judge.
Supreme Court Judge Ralph Porzio issued a permanent injunction blocking the law in June 2022.
Nevertheless, that ruling is being appealed by NYC’s Democrat Mayor Eric Adams.
Malliotakis commented on the situation during an appearance on Fox Business.
While it’s unclear if the language is standard in city contracts for shelter and housing services, the city’s Department of Social Services hit back on Sunday.
“These allegations are false and baseless,” the department said in a statement.
“DHS is legally required to include language around voter registration in shelter contracts and this guidance applies only to eligible clients who are citizens, and would clearly not apply to asylum seekers in shelter.”
“They are bringing to you voter registration of people who are here illegally, and as soon as they’re here for 30 days, how is it they’re entitled to vote?” said State Assemblyman Sam Pirozzolo in comments to reporters.
“What’s the first thing they’re going to vote for? Better hotel rooms?” he quipped.
“How do they even understand the American system of government?”
“There is nothing more important than preserving the integrity of our election system,” Malliotakis added in a statement.
“The right to vote is a sacred right given only to United States citizens, and certainly not one provided to those who crossed over our border illegally and made their way to New York City last month.
“The City better not be acting in violation of the judge’s ruling that struck down the noncitizen voting law that would have allowed 800,000 noncitizens with a Green Card or Work Authorization and who have resided in New York City for 30 days, to vote.”
