House Democrats can’t bring themselves to oppose illegal immigrant voting, even in the most meaningless way possible:
Nearly every House Democrat on Friday opposed a measure condemning voting in U.S. elections by illegal immigrants, as part of a sweeping election reform bill.Oh nooo, Fox News
The GOP-backed measure would have added language to the “H.R. 1” election proposal stating that “allowing illegal immigrants the right to vote devalues the franchise and diminishes the voting power of United States citizens.”
Federal law already prohibits non-citizens from voting in elections for federal office. But the GOP motion referenced how San Francisco is allowing non-citizens, including illegal immigrants, to register to vote in school board elections.
Bear in mind – it’s the same language that passed without controversy six months ago.
The entire Democrat conference seems to think the entire nation suffers from Pauline Kael syndrome.
