Republicans Try To Save America’s Election System From Foreign Takeover

Senator Marco Rubio from Florida and five other GOP senators have unveiled laws to block federal funding to cities and states that allow foreigners to vote in United States elections.

“It is ridiculous that blue states are allowing foreigners to vote,” Rubio said in a media release. “However, if states do allow those who are not citizens to vote, they should not get taxpayer money.”

Rubio introduced the “Protecting Our Democracy by Stopping Foreign Citizens from Voting Act” along with Senators Thom Tillis from North Carolina, Steve Daines from Montana, John Kennedy from Louisiana, Rick Scott from Florida and James Lankford from Oklahoma.

Republican Congressman Jeff Duncan from South Carolina introduced the bill in the U.S. House on December 16.

The Republican coalition said allowing foreigners to cast votes dilutes the votes of real citizens and triggers a slippery slope that might compromise election integrity.

“It is simple — United States citizens should be the only ones voting in our elections,” Daines said in a comment. “Sadly, far-Left cities and states have moved to disenfranchise American citizens by allowing non-citizens to vote in our elections. This needs to be stopped.”

Kennedy agreed, saying that allowing noncitizens to vote “makes a mockery of United States citizenship.”

“Most Americans were born here, and some came here legally, but none of these citizens should have their vote nullified by a foreigner who casts a ballot,” he said.

On December 9th, Democrat-controlled NY City approved a measure that will bring in over 800,000 noncitizens to vote in local elections. These are New York citizens who have the legal right to work in the country.

So far, these noncitizens were prevented from voting in elections, but it is only a matter of time before this happens since Dems have already started agitating for illegals to vote.

As we have seen, the radical-liberal policies created by big cities like New York usually metastasize nationwide, so changing local elections ultimately changes national politics.

“Allowing illegals to vote gives foreigners influence on some of the most crucial decisions impacting our rights, and our representation in the government,” Duncan said in a comment.
