Finally, Action to Combat True Foreign Interference in U.S. Elections by Non-Citizens Voting

voted election fraud hacking votingSince President Trump was elected in 2016, the mainstream media, the left, and the Washington D.C. establishment have gone mad over election interference. Facebook memes are serious business in the nation’s capital now. Yet despite millions of taxpayer dollars, thousands of man hours, and lives turned upside down by multiple investigations, not one piece of evidence has been presented that shows Russia voted in, changed someone’s vote, or influenced someone to vote for President Trump. But there are cases around the country of real foreign influence in U.S. elections, and U.S. Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.) has introduced legislation to put a stop to it.

Leftist cities around the nation are going to extremes keep their majorities. One of the more nefarious extremes is giving legal and illegal immigrants the ability to vote in local elections, and possibly federal elections. San Francisco is the latest city to allow such lunacy. This is the very definition of foreign intervention.

Duncan has introduced H.R. 6482, the Eliminating Foreign Intervention in Elections Act. The bill states, “None of the funds made available in any Act may be used to make payments to any unit of local government that permits individuals who are not citizens of the United States to vote in elections for State or local office.” The cities will have to decide what is more important, illegal immigrant votes or federal funds.

Late last year, the city of Chicago introduced CityKey, IDs for Chicago, specifically targeting illegal immigrants living in the windy city. According to the city clerk’s website, “no registration or pre-qualification is needed, and every Chicagoan is eligible regardless of age, insurance, income, health, or immigration status.” What is disturbing is the ID is also a valid form of ID for voting.

Clerk Anna Valencia wrote in a letter about the ID, “the Illinois Election Code requires the Board of Elections to accept current, valid photo identification cards and other local governmental documentation that includes an individual’s name and address, as proof of identity and residency. The CityKey fits both of these requirements.”

The question must be asked, what is to stop illegal and legal immigrants from voting in national elections if the ID targeting them is a valid form of voter ID? Nothing.

By flooding local elections with legal and illegal immigrant votes, American citizens are losing their voice. The Constitution grants citizens the right to vote, not non-citizens. For every non-citizen that votes, a citizen has their vote diluted, and the risk of non-citizen policies being pushed on citizens. Not only is it insulting to citizens, the cities and municipalities expect the federal government to reward them with funding for doing so.

In a press release about the legislation, Duncan stated, “Being an American citizen comes with great benefits and responsibilities, which includes voting in elections. The dangerous initiatives that have been popping up across the country that grant voting rights to illegal immigrants and noncitizens are very concerning. Allowing noncitizens to vote undermines the rights of American citizens and puts our democracy at risk. Municipalities that allow noncitizens to vote in their elections are more likely to adopt the types of radical sanctuary city policies that promote illegal activity, undermine law enforcement, and suppress the concerns of citizen voters.”

The left has proven it does not care about foreign interference in an election. In fact, the left is actively seeking foreign interference on its behalf, and the actions of numerous leftist localities around the country prove that. If Congress truly believes it needs to combat foreign interference in U.S. elections, Rep. Duncan’s bill would sail through Congress and land on President Trump’s desk. Unless of course, all the whining about Russian interference was just for show.

I have a question on the enforcement mechanism associated with this proposed House bill. As near as I can see from what there is of the bill, there is no actual over-sight or accountability mechanism to ensure that federal monies granted to the states are actually NOT utilized to promote means by which wither legal or illegal immigrants might gain the ability to vote. That only actual citizens of the United States are allowed to vote, which is the law. This House bill just contains a kind of declaratory statement that the states agree that any federal monies received will not be used, directly or indirectly, to facilitate the voting of non-citizens. We all know how well that kind of a “promise” will be honored by the various blue states and their politicians of our country. So what actual enforcement and tracking measures, ones with real teeth that will hold both the state politicians and the states themselves both financially and potentially criminally liable, are envisioned beyond what is in the bill today? Because as currently worded, there isn’t much of an incentive for any blue state politician to do anything but continue to accept federal monies and then tell the federal government to go pound sand, as they do now, when they continue the type of state programs outlined in this article. Seriously, I would like an answer. Otherwise this is just another “go nowhere” bill simply put out there to garner votes for the Congressman ahead of the mid-terms.

Right, PaulE, there are no enforcement provisions in the Bill as currently worded. All that could be assumed is that agencies who issue the funds specified would voluntarily withhold the funds from offending local governments. That should be a great help, what?
