(RoyalPatriot.com )- In the House of Representatives, 162 Democrats voted to allow illegal immigrants to participate in municipal elections in the District of Columbia.
Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) listed the 162 Democrats who voted against H.J.Res.24, which would have blocked the District of Columbia Council’s approval of the Local Resident Voting Rights Amendment Act of 2022.
First submitted in the House on January 31, 2023, the bill seeks to overturn the District of Columbia Council’s Local Resident Voting Rights Amendment Act of 2022, which allows noncitizens who fulfill residence and other qualifications to vote in non-federal elections in the district. This also applies to those who are in the country illegally.
The bill was approved by a Republican-led House 227-201 but now moves to the Democratic-controlled Senate.
Massie has been critical of Democrats all week, and this isn’t the first time. On Thursday, he also published a list of 201 Democratic lawmakers who support maintaining a vaccination requirement for overseas tourists who are not U.S. citizens.
He went on to clarify that the regulation, unbelievably, wouldn’t pertain to illegal immigrants who are released into the US.
After the House of Representatives passed a bipartisan resolution of disapproval on the D.C. proposal on Friday, Republican senators Katie Britt (Ala.) and Tom Cotton (Ark.) encouraged the Senate to take up a joint resolution to halt the law in its tracks.
A memo from the Biden administration expressed support for the D.C. Council’s bill and opposition to H.J. 24, the resolution disapproving of the move before the House passed it. The Biden administration argued that H.J. 24 was a denial of “true self-governance” and proof that D.C. “deserves statehood.”
Britt said that the president has disgracefully disregarded his sworn duty to defend the Constitution of the United States. Simply put, he has abandoned the interests of the United States in favor of appeasing the far-left section of the Democratic Party.
The Alabama senator said that the D.C. Council’s action encouraged illegal immigration just as the crisis was unfolding at the southern border and allowed foreign opponents to have an influence on elections in the nation’s capital.
