house Bill H.R. 151

Should States & Localities Allowing Non-Citizens to Vote in State or Local Elections Lose Federal Funds?

Argument in favor

Only American citizens should vote in elections, and while non-citizens are barred from voting in federal elections some local governments allow them to vote in local elections. That wrongly dilutes the voting power of U.S. citizens, so states and localities allowing non-citizen voting should lose access to federal funds.

It is a right give only to US citizens (it is taught in US history) to vote in any election on US soil. If an non-US citizen wishes to vote then they must go through the naturalization process via the US immigration.

People that are not legal citizens should not be voting in any of our elections.

Only citizens should vote. Any foreigner that wants a part in the process should swear allegiance and become a citizen.

Argument opposed

Non-citizens pay taxes, enroll their kids in public schools, and live in American communities. They have as much of a stake in the governance of their community as their U.S. citizen neighbors. As such, they should be allowed to vote so they have a voice in government decisions that affect their lives.

Instances of voter fraud are incredibly few. Bigger concerns are foreign intervention with voter roll data or voting machines, as well as stoking hate and fear in attempts to suppress votes. Election fraud like what happened in NC is also a real concern that needs to be dealt with.

Don’t bother to pull their funding. Instead, arrest every state and local administrator involved. Try them for treason. If convicted, make high profile public examples out of them. A conviction for treason generally carries the death penalty. As it should. This bs will come to a grinding halt.

FOR THE 100th TIME. ONLY REGISTERED CITIZENS ARE ALLOWED TO VOTE IN FEDERAL ELECTIONS. THIS IS THE SAME CRAP THAT KOBACH TRIED TO SELL EVERYONE ON - voter fraud. He spent Government money millions of $$$ & only found 3, which were Republicans who were registered in 2 states. Non-citizen people that cities or counties allow to vote is because those people will be personally affected by the bill in which they are voting. THAT IS NONE OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT’S BUSINESS as long as they don’t allow those people to vote in FEDERAL ELECTIONS. RIDICULOUS THAT THIS BILL IS EVEN WASTING THE CONGRESS’ TIME.

    Constitution says that only U.S. Citizens can what don’t the Democrats understand about this? I understand that undocumented immigrants are being taxed without representation. Here is a fix = apply for citizenship the right way. DACA recipients should get to vote though as soon as they turn 18 if they are working in the United States and they should be allowed to become United States citizens.

    This doesn’t exist. We’ve been over this dozens of times. Even the people that have deliberately done research WANTING to find voter fraud find vanishingly tiny numbers. You’re more at risk of being hit by lightning.

    Voting is a right if citizens. Non-citizens and felons do not have the right to vote. To much blood has been shed over this right (civil rights) and marches held (women’s rights) to diminish this by allowing anyone who happens to be in the neighborhood to have this right!

    Absolutely they should loose Federal dollars, this is an insult and a slap in the face of legal citizens and those who come here legally. Our founders never intended for non citizens to vote in any election. #MAGA

    Should illegal immigrants be allowed to vote? No. That question was so easy to answer.

    House H.R. 151 bill AKA- Eliminating Foreign Intervention in Elections Act It’s obvious that a Democrat will be opposed to H.R. 151 being passed. I’m in strong support of and recommend the passage of the House H.R. 151 bill AKA -Eliminating Foreign Intervention in Elections Act — would prohibit the use of federal funds to make payments to local governments that allow non-citizens to vote in state or local elections. It’d require the Census Bureau to collect and publish information on which states or localities have non-citizen voting policies in place. Only American citizens should vote in elections, and while non-citizens are barred from voting in federal elections some local governments allow them to vote in local elections. We’re seeing the initial rollout of non-citizens having the ability of illegal voting occurring at the local level with NO efforts of preventing illegal migrants impacting voting results in local elections. That wrongly dilutes the voting power of U.S. citizens, so states and localities allowing non-citizen voting should lose access to federal funds. SneakyPete........ 🙀👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻🙀. 3*9*19..........

    No countries allow foreigners to vote in their elections, if you’re not a citizen you are foreigner because you have not taken the oath of allegiance to be a citizen and when you have that allegiance then you can have a voice in your government.

    Amendment XV in the Constitution ratified on 03 February, 1870, & Amendment XIX ratified on 18 August, 1920 clearly address protections of voting rights in regards to “The right of ‘CITIZENS’ of the ‘UNITED STATES’”. Non-citizens do not have the Constitutional right to vote. The left has taken up tactics attempted by the pre-Civil War South, that of ‘Nullification’ of Constitutional Federal Law they did not agree with. President Andrew Jackson threatened to send Federal troops to the South to enforce what the South called the “Tariff of Abomination”. Open defiance/nullification historically tends not to end well for any country. Presidents swear to “preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution “, & must be allowed peaceful means in furtherance of their duties.

    Tenth Amendment of the US Constitution states: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” This bill, if passed, would likely be found unconstitutional because it violates the 10th Amendment. I find it interesting that a Republican is sponsoring a bill to limit states’ rights, since that phrase has been their mantra fo all the 36 years I have been a voter.

    States and localities can make their own laws about whether or not non-citizens can vote in their elections. Non-citizens are only prohibited from voting in federal elections, not state or local elections! The GOP just needs to admit that they don’t like people who look different from your ordinary white American.

    If you are not a citizen of this country, you have no say on how my village,town,city, state, or country is run or who runs it. This business of allowing illegals to run rampant is out of hand.
