Committee on the Judiciary

RESOLUTION

Recognizing that allowing illegal immigrants the right to vote devalues the franchise and diminishes the voting power of United States citizens.

Whereas voting is fundamental to a functioning democracy;

Whereas the Constitution prohibits discrimination in voting based on race, sex, poll taxes, and age;

Whereas it is of paramount importance that the United States maintains the legitimacy of its elections and protects them from interference, including interference from foreign threats and illegal voting;

Whereas the city of San Francisco, California, is allowing non-citizens, including illegal immigrants, to register to vote in school board elections;

Whereas New York City, New York, has enacted a law allowing non-citizens to vote in local elections for mayor, city council, and others; and

Whereas the Constitution and Federal law prohibit non-citizens from voting in elections for Federal office: Now, therefore, be it

That the House of Representatives recognizes that allowing illegal immigrants and non-citizens the right to vote devalues the franchise and diminishes the voting power of United States citizens.
