“if states and localities do let those who are not U.S. citizens to vote in elections, they shouldn’t get U.S. citizen taxpayer money”
The city council in New York recently voted to allow 800,000 non-citizens to vote in local elections, a move many people believe is a test run for the bigger goal of letting all illegal immigrants vote.
Now Senate Republicans are pushing back by crafting legislation that would bar cities and states from receiving federal funds if they do this.
John Solomon reports at Just the News:
Republicans move to ban federal funds to states, cities that allow non-citizens to vote
Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., is leading a coalition of Republicans in Congress to sponsor legislation that would ban federal funding to states or localities that allow foreigners to vote in U.S. elections.
The new legislation, dubbed the Protecting Our Democracy by Preventing Foreign Citizens from Voting Act, was introduced after many liberal municipalities from San Francisco to New York have moved in 2021 to allow non-citizens to cast ballots in local elections
“It’s ridiculous that states are allowing foreign citizens to vote,” Rubio said. “However, if states and localities do let those who are not U.S. citizens to vote in elections, they shouldn’t get U.S. citizen taxpayer money.”
The measure is being cosponsored by GOP Sens. Steve Daines of Montana, Thom Tillis of North Carolina, John Kennedy, of Louisiana, Rick Scott of Florida and James Lankford, R-Oklahoma.
Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-S.C., plans to introduce companion legislation in the House.
“Voting in this country is a right that should solely be limited to American citizens. Allowing non-citizens or illegal immigrants to vote, even if only in state or local elections, gives foreign nationals influence on some of the most important decisions impacting our families, our rights, and our representation in government,” Duncan said.
Mike Miller of RedState notes that this isn’t going anywhere as long as Democrats are still in charge:
Simply, the federal legislation would bar federal funds from any state or local government that allows illegal aliens and other “foreign citizens” to vote in any federal, state, or local election, and requires all state and local government to certify they do not allow foreign citizens to vote when applying for federal funding.
If the bill passes and is signed into law by the president — neither of those will happen until Biden is out of the White House and Republicans regain control of both chambers of Congress (see: “2022 midterms,” “2024 presidential election”) — let the cheating begin.
Make that “let the cheating continue.” Incidentally, here’s a hot tip for the Democrat Party:
The Democrats’ belief that Hispanic Americans will dutifully line up for decades and overwhelmingly vote Democrat — as have Black voters for more than six decades —is a pipe dream at best, delusional denial at worst. As I recently reported, Hispanic voters are not only abandoning the Democrat Party in favor of Republican candidates, in droves; the degree of abandonment has dramatically increased since 2018.
Democrats are constantly looking for ways to make it impossible for Republicans to win elections. It’s good to see Republicans actually trying to do something to stop them for a change.DONATE
