Illegal Alien Legislative Fight

(Patriot.Buzz) – Confirming why they were keen on allowing a staggering amount of illegals into the country, House Democrats are gеaring up to oppose the Safeguard American Voter Eligibility (SAVE) Act.

Scheduled for a vote the week of July 15, the bill would make it mandatory for state election officials to verify American citizenship before distributing voter registration forms.

It stipulatеs that election officials can only register voters for federal elections if they providе proof of citizenship, such as a passport or birth certificate.

Introduced by Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX), the SAVE Act is deemed a landmark for its essential role in protecting U.S. elections from foreign interference and addressing broader concerns about immigration and border security.

He highlighted the bill as a response to the ongoing immigration crisis created under the Biden administration.

“Noncitizen voting is a threat to election integrity,” House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) stated in a policy brief to emphasize the need for the legislation.

“Congress must pass the SAVE Act to close the loopholes that have allowed noncitizen voting, to enhance election security, to reduce the risk of foreign election interference, and to restore Americans’ confidence in U.S. elections,” he said.

However, Democrats led by House Minority Whip Katherine Clark (D-MA) are pushing back hard against the bill.

Clark is pressing Democrats, especially those in districts that previously supported former President Donald Trump and are facing challenging reelections, to vote against the bill.

Support for requiring proof of citizenship to vote is notable among the public. A July 2022 YouGov poll shows 65% of Americans in favor, including 48% of Democrats and 88% of Republicans.

The Democratic response claims it places “an extreme burden [on] countless Americans” in order to vote.

They argue that the legislation is unnecessary and cited a lack of evidence for the widespread voter fraud it aims to prevent.

The whip question distributed to Democratic House members has a clear directive: “Democrats are urged to VOTE NO on H.R. 8281.”

Meanwhile, House Republicans are advocating strongly for the bill’s passage, with Speaker Johnson declaring on X that “the SAVE Act will safeguard our elections by ensuring only American citizens vote in federal elections.”
