NEW: House Republicans Launch Bill To Stop Illegals From Voting

In a move aimed at protecting the integrity of federal elections, House Republicans announced on Wednesday the introduction of the Secure America’s Voting Elections (SAVE) Act. The legislation, led by House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA), seeks to amend federal law by requiring proof of U.S. citizenship to register to vote in federal elections. The measure is a response to growing concerns over non-citizens and illegal immigrants casting ballots.

“We are here this morning for a very important reason,” Johnson began during a press conference announcing the bill. “There is currently an unprecedented and a clear and present danger to the integrity of our election system, and that is the threat of non-citizens and illegal aliens voting in our elections.”

“The first or second question that I am asked in every public forum is about election security,” he noted. He attributed these worries to the Biden administration’s immigration policies, which he claims have allowed millions of illegal immigrants into the country.

“If only one out of a hundred of those voted, they would cast hundreds of thousands of votes,” Johnson said. “Since our elections are so razor-thin these days, just a few precincts and states decide the makeup of Congress and who is elected to the White House. This is a dangerously high number, and it could obviously change the outcome of our elections.”

Johnson elaborated on the specific challenges surrounding election security, pointing to the lack of mechanisms ensuring only U.S. citizens are registering and voting. “All they have to do is check a box on a form and sign their name,” Johnson said. “There’s a very small chance that illegals would get caught because states do not have the election infrastructure in place to confirm what they’ve said.”

Johnson alluded to the disturbing pattern of states blurring the lines between citizens and non-citizens in local elections. “In cities and towns in California, Maryland, Vermont, and even right here in D.C., non-citizens are voting,” he said. He explained that Democratic lawmakers have a clear agenda to turn non-citizens into voters, citing public comments by high-profile Democrats like Jerry Nadler (D-NY) and Stacey Abrams (D-GA).

Johnson was joined by Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) and Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), who have been instrumental in crafting the legislation.

“Even if you weren’t concerned about the drop boxes and the ballot harvesting in 2020, you definitely should be concerned that illegal aliens might be voting in 2024,” Johnson cautioned. As the SAVE Act gains momentum in Congress, House Republicans are calling on their colleagues to join them in securing America’s federal elections. “It is critical that we pass the SAVE Act to safeguard our federal elections and ensure that only Americans get to decide American elections,” Johnson concluded.

The legislative initiative will undoubtedly face stiff opposition from Democrats, who consistently express their reservations about common-sense voting laws. The bill would mandate proof of U.S. citizenship for voter registration in federal elections. However, Johnson was resolute, vowing to fight for measures that uphold the sanctity of the electoral process. “We will monitor this and bring you any news out of it,” he pledged.
