House Dems overwhelmingly reject motion to condemn illegal immigrant voting

Speaker Pelosi attempts to pass resolution to block President Trump's emergency declaration

House Democrats set vote for overturning national emergency declaration; reaction and analysis from 'The Next Revolution' panel.

Nearly every House Democrat on Friday opposed a measure condemning voting in U.S. elections by illegal immigrants, as part of a sweeping election reform bill.


The GOP-backed measure would have added language to the “H.R. 1” election proposal stating that “allowing illegal immigrants the right to vote devalues the franchise and diminishes the voting power of United States citizens.”


HOUSE APPROVES SWEEPING DEM ELECTION REFORM BILL, AMID FIRST AMENDMENT CONCERNS

Federal law already prohibits non-citizens from voting in elections for federal office. But the GOP motion referenced how San Francisco is allowing non-citizens, including illegal immigrants, to register to vote in school board elections.

The motion was voted down 228-197. All but six Democrats in the House voted against it. Just one Republican opposed it.



Lauren Fine, a spokeswoman for House GOP Whip Steve Scalise, pointed out that an identical resolution was adopted by the House last September. But on Friday, 41 Democrats flipped to oppose the latest measure.

“These 41 Democrats must now answer to voters why they were against illegal immigrants voting in elections six months ago, but are suddenly in favor of it now,” Fine said.

The House on Friday later approved the Democrat-backed election bill. It would institute public financing of congressional campaigns, require presidential candidates to disclose tax returns and make Election Day a federal holiday. But the measure is dead on arrival in the Senate, where Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has blasted the bill.

HOUSE DEMS TARGET TRUMP TAX RETURNS AS PART OF LEAD-OFF ETHICS PACKAGE

The "H.R. 1" measure has been criticized by civil libertarians and Republicans over First Amendment concerns.

The American Civil Liberties Union, in a recent letter to Congress, encouraged lawmakers to vote against the proposal because of “provisions that unconstitutionally impinge on the free speech rights of American citizens and public interest organizations.”

“They will have the effect of harming our public discourse by silencing necessary voices that would otherwise speak out about the public issues of the day,” the ACLU wrote.

One concern of civil libertarians is the bill’s inclusion of the DISCLOSE ACT, which would require all organizations that spend money on elections to disclose donors.

The ACLU said it supports making organizations report spending for public communications like TV ads that expressly call for the election or defeat of a candidate for office. But it worries the DISCLOSE ACT goes beyond that.

“These standards are unclear and entirely subjective, which will lead to confusion and, ultimately, less speech,” the ACLU said.

We need incentives for illegals to become citizens. Voting rights should be one of those incentives.

I can't agree with that. If they are illegals, deport them. If they really want to be Americans there are ways to go about that. Obey our laws, follow our rules, WELCOME, they are REAL immigrants. Criminal invaders sneaking in to be a leach on our society are NOT welcome. Democrats depend on the votes of their criminal invaders and the voting dead to win. CHARLIE.

I guess I didn't state that quite correctly because that's what I meant. If you start giving non citizens the same rights and benefits as citizens there is no incentive to become a citizen.

Voting is a privilege and an obligation. Should people who do not know our laws and customs be allowed to vote ?

Absolutely NOT. I don't believe that these criminal invaders don't know that we have rules, laws, and customs, they want what they want and laugh and disrespect, our laws. our country, our flag, and YOU AND ME. WHY is should criminals vote is even a question??
They became criminals when they crossed our border, and many become even bigger criminals. Rapes, robberies, beatings, duis, hit n runs, kills American citizens in wrecks, overloads our schools, hospitols, rtc. They cost us $BILLIioNS that could be better used on AMERICAN citizens, homeless, military, and all kinds of good things, instead of being wasted on ungrateful criminals who's main reason for coming here is to leach off of us, no wonder they love democrats. CHARLIE.

Once Pelosi and the communists get undocumented immigrants the right to vote there will never be a fair election again; and we will never be able to prove election fraud..
