JENNY BETH MARTIN: Non-Citizens Voting? No Thanks, Americans Say

Is it possible that non-citizens will incorrectly determine the outcome of the 2024 election? Yes, unless Congress and the President take immediate action.

The 2024 election will be as close as the 2020 and 2016 elections before it. The winner succeeds in the electoral system by winning key states with just a few thousand votes here and there, as Biden won Arizona, Georgia, and Wisconsin in 2020 by a difference in total votes. there is a possibility. 42,921 votesOr like Trump won Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin combined in 2016. 77,244 votes.

According to the federal government’s own numbers, since January 2021, when Joe Biden took office, 7 million Illegal immigrants have entered our country. This does not include “known vacations” or worse, “unknown vacations.”

Try doing the math yourself. If just 1 percent of the more than 7 million illegal aliens who entered the country under the Biden administration found a way to register and vote, that would be more votes than Biden received in 2020. That’s close to the number of votes Trump received in 2016.

And where do the illegal aliens go? New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, you name it! atlanta, Philadelphia, charlotte, Las Vegasand phoenix – In all major cities in key battleground states, just a few thousand votes can change the balance of a close race on either side.

Against the backdrop of an unprecedented surge in illegal immigration, President Biden has ordered minions across the executive branch to aggressively ramp up voter registration efforts. Executive Order 14109, issued by Biden on March 7, 2021, ordered all federal agencies to facilitate voter registration for everyone they come into contact with. What safeguards are in place to ensure that the Department of Homeland Security and other federal agencies do not register illegal aliens with whom they come in contact?

The American people want only citizens to be able to vote in federal elections.

In fact, new poll results confirm that Americans, by a wide margin, believe voting should be restricted to American citizens only.

of investigationMcLaughlin & Associates joins us for Tea Party Patriots Action starting January 25th Until January 31stA survey of 1,000 2024 general election voters had a margin of error of +/- 3.1% with a 95% confidence interval.

When asked whether they agreed or disagreed with the statement, “Proof of U.S. citizenship should be required to register to vote in U.S. elections,” 87% agreed and 67% “strongly” agreed. I said I agree. (Related: Jenny Beth Martin: Joe Biden is the worst president ever.)

Similarly, 86% agreed and 73% “strongly” agreed with the statement, “Only U.S. citizens should be able to vote in elections for U.S. president, U.S. senators, and U.S. representatives.”

Some Republicans in the House of Representatives recognize the threat of non-citizens voting in federal elections and have introduced legislation to address the issue. U.S. Representative Keith Self of Texas introduced HR 487, the American Voter Security Act of 2023. It amends the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) of 1993 to prohibit states from registering individuals to vote in federal elections. First, an individual provides documentation proving they are a U.S. citizen.

U.S. Rep. Pat Fallon of Texas has introduced a slightly more powerful bill called HR 627, the Election Verification, or Voting Act. His bill would require documentation of U.S. citizenship to register to vote in federal elections and would impose criminal penalties for violations, with individuals who violate the law subject to fines, up to five years in prison, or less. Both will be punished.

Clearly, it is time for Congress to act. With a significant increase in illegal immigration over the past three years, it is now more likely than ever for noncitizens to be able to register and vote. The American people, by far, want the people alone to have a say in choosing their nation’s leaders. A new law is needed to ensure that only citizens can vote. Speaker Mike Johnson and his colleagues should get started on this immediately and there is no excuse not to do so.
