Prager U did a street interview of San Francisco residents this week to ask them if they approve of illegal immigrants being allowed to vote.

What were their responses?

“I don’t believe that people are illegal,” a young woman says in the video. “So...yes.”

Prager U’s Will Witt followed up by asking her if that holds true even for people who don’t pay into the tax system.

“I haven’t paid taxes since 2014 and I still vote. So, yes,” she replied.

Another woman said, “You know, I feel like people who are living here, anyone — illegal or not — has a right in their opinion...I do feel like everyone has a right to vote. Illegal or not.”

A man responded to Witt's question by saying, "Um. Hold on. Do you want to ask me another question?”

In July, San Francisco gave illegal residents the ability to register to vote in school board elections, the Sacramento Bee reported.

The move made San Francisco the first city in California to allow non-citizens to vote in local elections, according to the report. It happened with the passage of Measure N, which passed with 54 percent of the vote after it failed two previous times, KTVU-TV reported.

Anything else?

Prager U's website states that its mission is to "explain and spread what we call 'Americanism' through the power of the Internet. Our five-minute videos are conservative sound bites that clarify profoundly significant and uniquely American concepts for more than 100 million people each year."

The co-founder of Prager U, Dennis Prager, is a best-selling author, columnist and nationally syndicated radio talk show host.
