This is why Democrats do not care about the black vote anymore. They know they have lost a small percentage of black voters and they have moved on. Their idea of filling the void is with Latinos and illegal aliens.
On Friday, Democrats voted to support local elections that allowed illegal aliens the ability to vote in their elections. The GOP voted against illegal voting nearly six months ago and have been discouraging the practice for longer than that.
“We are prepared to open up the political process and let all of the people come in,” Rep. John Lewis, a Georgia Democrat and hero of the civil rights movement, told colleagues as he led opposition to the GOP measure.
The 228-197 vote came as part of a broader debate on Democrats’ major legislative priority this year, HR 1, the “For the People Act,” which includes historic expansions of voter registration and access, as well as a major rewrite of campaign finance laws.
The measure would have had no practical effect even if it had passed. Illegal immigrants — and indeed noncitizens as a whole — are not legally able to participate in federal elections.
But Republicans had hoped to send a message to localities such as San Francisco, where noncitizens are now allowed to vote in school board elections. [excerpt via Washington Times]
It looks like we need a constitutional amendment to make sure that non-citizens are not allowed to vote in the United States. If you’re not interested in being a citizen, you should not be allowed to vote. If you are not eligible to become a citizen, you should not be allowed to vote. It’s just that simple.
In July, San Francisco started allowing noncitizens to vote for school board elections — though they must be parents or legal guardians of students.
The Senate won’t allow this to pass their chamber either so this is just a “look what we did vote,” for everyone to see.
