House GOP Introduces Bill to Prevent Non-Citizens From Voting in US Elections

“Anyone—even an illegal alien or other non-citizen—can register to vote in federal elections, just by checking a box and signing a form. This is all on the honor system. No proof of citizenship is required,” says Sen. Mike Lee (Utah)..

House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) introduced a bill that would require proof of American citizenship to register to vote in federal elections.

Johnson unveiled the Safeguard American Voter Eligibility (SAVE) Act on the Capitol steps Wednesday, which was sponsored by Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Rep. Chip Roy (R-Texas), warning that a “dangerously high number” of illegal aliens are able to vote in elections.

“Due to the wide-open border that the Biden administration has refused to close, in fact, that they engineered to open, we now have so many non-citizens in the country that if only one out of 100 of those voted, they would cast hundreds of thousands of votes,” Johnson said.

He continued, “And since our elections are so razor-thin… and a few states decide the makeup of Congress and who is elected to the White House, this is a dangerously high number, and it is a great concern to millions and millions of Americans. It could obviously change the outcome of our elections.”

“If a nefarious actor wants to intervene in our elections, all they have to do is check a box on a form and sign their name. That’s it,” he added, noting that about 16 million illegal aliens have already entered the U.S. since Biden captured the White House.

The legislation would amend the 1993 National Voter Registration Act, also known as the “motor voter law,” to require that states obtain documentary proof of citizenship from someone before they can register to vote. It also would require states to remove noncitizens from existing voter rolls.

“The most fundamental thing you can do to destroy the rule of law and to destroy our republic is to undermine faith in elections and undermine integrity of elections by making it unclear as to who is voting and limiting our ability to know that only citizens are voting,” Rep. Roy told reporters.

“We are here for the proposition supported by the vast majority of the American people: that only citizens of the United States should vote, that we should have documentary proof, that we should have a system to guarantee that only citizens of the United States vote in federal elections where we have the clear authority under the Constitution of the United States, under our laws as Congress, to set the terms of those elections.”

Though Democrats have argued that it’s already illegal for noncitizens to vote in U.S. elections, Sen. Lee (R-Utah) pointed out that that there are currently no mechanisms to stop them from doing so.

“Congressional Democrats insist that the SAVE Act—which requires proof of citizenship to establish eligibility to vote in federal elections—is unnecessary because federal law (18 USC § 611) already prohibits non-citizens from voting in federal elections,” Lee posted on X Friday.

“Those making this argument ignore a glaring problem: the government officials who register voters and conduct federal elections aren’t allowed to require proof of citizenship.”

“Anyone—even an illegal alien or other non-citizen—can register to vote in federal elections, just by checking a box and signing a form. This is all on the honor system. No proof of citizenship is required,” he added.

Underscoring the bad-faith arguments made by Democrats in opposition to the SAVE Act, the House on Wednesday passed a bill to add a citizenship question to the 2030 census — without a single Democrat vote.

“If you are an illegal immigrant, you should not be represented in the U.S. Congress,” House Majority Whip Tom Emmer (R-Minn.) told Fox News after the vote. “It’s a shame that House Democrats are allowing their open-borders agenda to get in the way of common sense.”

Biden voters have even openly bragged that Joe Biden will triumph in the 2024 election thanks to illegal aliens voting.
