House Democrats Unveil Their Position on Noncitizen Voting with Crucial SAVE Act Vote

One would have thought that among the ever-shrinking number of issues on which the majority in Congress could still agree, requiring citizens to be citizens before they can vote was one. Unfortunately, it does not appear to be the case. The House of Representatives approved the SAVE Act on Wednesday afternoon, but only five Democrats supported the measure.

We’re probably at the point where partisanship is more important than even the most fundamental concepts. The final vote count was 221 to 198. The main talking point for opposition to the measure seems to be “But (non-citizen voter voting), it hardly ever occurs.”

The U.S. House of Representatives passed Wednesday a requirement that voters prove their citizenship. This is a Republican talking point for the upcoming election, even though research shows it’s extremely rare to find noncitizens registering illegally and voting in federal elections.

The Democratic-led Senate is unlikely to pass the legislation that was approved mostly along partisan lines, but five Democrats voted in favor. The Biden administration is also strongly opposed to the legislation because it already has safeguards in place to enforce the laws against noncitizens voting. However, it did not say it would veto it if the measure reached his desk.

Let’s pause for a second and ask: Do “administrations”, as we call them, usually veto legislation? Or should it be presidents? I thought it was an interesting word choice in light of recent events that have made me question who is in charge of the Oval Office.

Despite the likelihood that this measure will not pass the Democrat-controlled Senate, House Speaker Mike Johnson praised the passage of the measure in the House.

In a press conference held earlier this week, Republican House Speaker Mike Johnson, one of the key supporters of the bill said that many Democrats were opposed to the bill because they “want to see illegals participate in our federal election; they want to see them vote.”

In a speech on Wednesday, he described the vote as a “generational moment.”

He said that if a small fraction, or a fractional fraction, of the illegals Joe Biden brought here, were to vote, “it wouldn’t only change one race.” “It could potentially change all our races.”

Johnson posted a second statement on X regarding the passage of the SAVE Act, noting that members of Congress have now been on record about their stance regarding noncitizens voting.

198 House Democrats voted today against the ban on illegal aliens voting in American elections. Joe Biden welcomed millions and millions of illegal aliens to the United States over the last four years. He knew that they only had to check a single box to vote in a federal election.

The American people now know the positions of every member of Congress regarding this important issue. House Republicans think that only Americans can vote in American elections. House Democrats now have proven that they believe illegal aliens should be allowed to vote in American elections.
