House Democrats Dump Constitution In Favor Of Giving Illegals Right To Vote

The House Democrats have been on an ugly roll in the last few weeks. Not only did they give Ilhan Omar a token slap on the wrist, they decided that illegals have more of a right to vote than American citizens do. The Constitution need not apply.

Yesterday the House passed H.R. 1 and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD ) did a victory dance. 

“Our legislation, the For the People Act, numbered H.R. 1 and introduced by Maryland’s Rep. John Sarbanes, will restore public trust in Congress and the federal government in several critical ways. From redistricting reforms to campaign finance reforms, from strengthening Americans’ access to the ballot box, to higher ethical standards for our nation’s leaders, the For the People Act will protect our democracy and put power back in the hands of the American people.

First, H.R. 1 protects the integrity of our elections by strengthening voting rights protections. These include automatic voter registration, an expansion of early voting and ending the process of partisan redistricting nationwide. I have always said that real redistricting reform must be national to be effective; H.R. 1 achieves this goal. The act would also restore the vote to formerly incarcerated people who have paid their debts to society and deserve to have their voices heard in our democracy once again.”

“FOR THE PEOPLE!” Sounds catchy doesn’t it?

This is legislation that, as Congressman Steve Scalise points out, covers the following:

  • Forces states to allow felons to vote
  • Overrides state voter ID laws
  • Removes safeguards to prevent voter fraud
  • Taxpayer money will fund all candidates whether taxpayer supports that person or not
  • Taxpayer money would also fund campaigns by 6-1 margin
  • Taxpayer money would also fund child care and personal expenses of candidate

Sounds just lovely doesn’t it? Now I don’t know about you, but from my very first vote at 18 years old, I’ve worked hard to pay attention to the issues and candidates. It is MY voice and it is MY vote. I absolutely do not want my voice and voice taken away. And that’s what this legislation does.

It ALSO gives illegal immigrants a voice in our elections. Keep in mind that it is currently against the law for illegals to vote in our federal elections. The House Republicans tried to make that clear by attempting to add the following language to the bill.

“It simply read, “allowing illegal immigrants the right to vote devalues the franchise and diminishes the voting power of United States citizens.””

Unfortunately, that language was shot down.

“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 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.””

So nice that those Democrats who were FOR keeping illegals from voting have swung to the other side of the fence. Adorable.

Not only that…

““It sounds like I’m making it up. What kind of government would cancel the vote of its own citizens, and replace it with noncitizens?” said Rep. Dan Crenshaw, Texas Republican.”

Yes, exactly. San Francisco gave illegals the right to vote in their local elections. Several other municipalities have done so as well. Please tell me which other countries allow non-citizens a vote? I’ll wait.

San Fran Nan is totally on board with this legislation. In this presser with Lloyd Doggett (D-TX) she bluntly states that we need to stop suppressing the vote of ‘newcomers’ (illegals) who come to the U.S.

Yes, she said that. And just three days later, H.R. 1 was passed in the House.

Scalise is correct. Democrats are placing a greater value on their progressive socialistic agenda and are stomping all over our Constitution and the rights of Americans while doing so.

This is a feature with them folks, not a bug. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

    “support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic”… at least they’re making the identification easier…

    “Restore public trust in Congress” – Nope! Trust the Democrats even less. And I didn’t know that was possible.

  • GWB says:

    by strengthening voting rights protections
    automatic voter registration, an expansion of early voting
    Those two lines are in direct contradiction to each other.

    real redistricting reform must be national to be effective
    In violation of federalism, IOW. (The whole bill is in violation of federalism.)

    “FOR THE PEOPLE!”
    Reminds of the Cold War adage that People’s Democratic Republics are neither.

    Taxpayer money will fund…
    Dems have advocated publicly funded campaigns for a long time, now. They can stop fundraising (i.e., appealing to the people) altogether and get right to being the technocrats they believe they deserve to be.

    The future of their party is in cities like San Fran, where illegals can vote. Let that sink in.
    Yep. Because, ultimately, the rest of the world kinda likes the whole aristocrat/peasant thing, as long as the aristocrats provide bread and circuses for the peasants and don’t make the peasants work too hard to keep the aristocrats in the manner to which they’ve become accustomed. So, if you let the rest of the world in, they’ll vote to put the aristocrats in power.

    we need to stop suppressing the vote of ‘newcomers’ (illegals) who come to the U.S.
    Darn tootin’! We need to suppress their very presence here. As in – get them all out!

    Democrats are placing a greater value on their progressive socialistic agenda and are stomping all over our Constitution and the rights of Americans while doing so.
    At what point is it OK to finally talk about the proper solution to these domestic enemies of our Constitution?
