Breaking: House Passes SAVE Act That Bans Noncitizen Voting in Federal Elections

198 House Democrats voted against bill requiring proof of citizenship to vote, and the Biden regime will almost certainly veto it should it pass in the Senate.

The House passed the Republican-led Safeguard American Voter Eligibility (SAVE) Act by a 221-198 vote, which requires voters to prove their citizenship in order to vote in federal elections.

Only 5 House Democrats sided with the Republicans in voting for the bill.

House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) in a statement excoriated the Democrats for voting against the bill, claiming they have “now proven they believe that illegal aliens should vote in American elections.”

“Today, 198 House Democrats voted against preventing illegal aliens from voting in American elections. Over the past four years, Joe Biden has welcomed millions upon millions of illegals into the country knowing that noncitizens only have to check a box to vote in a federal election,” Johnson wrote.

“We have long known this was an intentional effort to turn them into voters, and now the American people know where every member of Congress stands on this critically important issue. House Republicans believe that only Americans should vote in American elections. House Democrats have now proven they believe that illegal aliens should vote in American elections.”

The Biden administration said it opposes the bill and will likely veto it should it pass the Senate.

“The alleged justification for this bill is based on easily disproven falsehoods,” the administration said in a statement on Monday.

“Additionally, making a false claim of citizenship or unlawfully voting in an election is punishable by removal from the United States and a permanent bar to admission.”

House Democrats earlier claimed in floor speeches that the SAVE Act is racist and xenophobic.

House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) argued the bill would only make it more difficult for Americans to vote, but did not elaborate on how that would be the case.
