Trump Exposes ''Democrats' New Form of Cheating'

According to former President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans, Democrats are avoiding strengthening federal laws that prohibit illegal immigrants from voting in federal elections.

“THE DEMOCRATS’ NEW FORM OF CHEATING!” Trump shared on Truth Social, linking to a New York Post report on illegal immigrants registering to vote.

The Post highlighted that in many states, illegal immigrants receiving welfare benefits, driver's licenses, and other government services are automatically sent voter registration forms. While non-citizens voting in federal elections is illegal, there is no requirement for proof of citizenship when applying to vote.

This issue is more complex in cities like Washington D.C., which recently allowed illegal immigrants to vote in local elections.

In response, the House Administration Committee has passed the Safeguard American Voter Eligibility (SAVE) Act. This bill mandates that potential voters provide proof of citizenship when registering to vote in federal elections.

“The radical progressive Democrats in the DC city government couldn’t be prouder of the fact that they’re going to have illegal aliens voting in their elections; yet, they want us to believe that it’s going to stop there, and that none of them are going to try — or be encouraged — to illegally vote in federal elections? Give me a break,” said Republican Rep. Chip Roy of Texas, the SAVE Act sponsor, to the U.K. Daily Mail.

“Secure elections are a key cornerstone for any representative government; without them, we won’t have a country. Radical progressive Democrats know this and are using open border policies while also attacking election integrity laws to fundamentally remake America,” Roy added on his website.

Roy also told the Post, “[w]hile Biden and radical progressive Democrats give ISIS and criminals an app to literally schedule their illegal entry, Republicans must fight any chance of illegal voter registration until we can mass deport.”

“As President Biden has welcomed millions of illegal aliens through our borders, including sophisticated criminal syndicates and foreign adversaries, it is incumbent upon Congress to implement greater enforcement measures that secure the voter registration process and ensure only American citizens decide the outcome of American elections,” said House Speaker Mike Johnson in a statement, according to the Post.

Ryan Walker, executive vice president at the conservative Heritage Foundation’s sister group, Heritage Action, told the Post, “It is undeniable that the current structure makes it possible for illegal immigrants and non-citizens to vote — and the American people have no way of knowing how widespread the problem may be.”

For instance, Ohio recently announced a deeper investigation after discovering 137 non-citizens on its voter registration rolls to determine how many more might be wrongly eligible to vote.

“The SAVE Act puts all of these issues to rest and gives Americans confidence that our elections are decided on a more even playing field,” Walker stated.

“Preventing non-citizens and illegal aliens from registering and voting in American elections should be a 100% issue in Congress,” said Republican Sen. Mike Lee of Utah, who would sponsor the SAVE Act in the Democrat-controlled Senate.

“Unfortunately, Democrats have taken the stance that it never happens — which is false — so we shouldn’t give states the tools to ensure it doesn’t happen — which is absurd,” Lee added.
