Non-Citizen Voting

There is no question that our national borders are open to illegal entry.  One big reason for the open-door policy seems to be that Biden and the Democrats want illegals to eventually be able to vote (for Democrats.) 

Eventually may be now.

The below comes directly from the New York State Voter Registration Form:

To register you must be a US citizen.

Are you a citizen of the U.S.?    Yes      No

Verifying your identity:

We’ll try to check your identity before Election Day, through the DMV number (driver’s license number or non-driver ID number), or the last four digits of your social security number, which you’ll fill in below.

If you do not have a DMV or social security number, you may use a valid photo ID, a current utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, government check or some other government document that shows your name and address. You may include a copy of one of those types of ID with this form— be sure to tape the sides of the form closed. If we are unable to verify your identity before Election Day, you will be asked for ID when you vote for the first time

No Social Security Number?  No problem. Just fill out this affidavit that says you have never been issued a Social Security Number.  (See link below.)

In New York State, all you have to do is say you are a citizen but not show any evidence that you are a citizen, only show that you live in NY State.  There are multiple ways to prove you live in NYS and they do not involve proving citizenship.  NY State also gives out driver’s licenses to illegal aliens without any proof of citizenship.

Are you an illegal alien worried that applying for a driver’s license will get you reported to ICE?  No problem.  Per NY State’s “Documented” web site:

Will my information be shared with the federal government? 

No. The law restricts access by immigration enforcement agencies unless it is required by a judicial order.

Basically, if you are a United States citizen living in New York State and do not want your vote cancelled by that of a non-citizen…you are screwed.

The Federalist offers more information:

Currently, Arizona is the only state that has some mechanism in place besides the honor system to keep foreign nationals from registering to vote. The state requires potential voters to provide documentary proof of citizenship to register to vote in state elections. But thanks to federal government interference, individuals who cannot prove their citizenship for state registration can still register as federal-only voters.

Thus, in Arizona, you must provide proof you are a citizen to vote in Arizona elections but you don’t need that proof to vote in federal elections!

The Federalist does offer some hope.

To find foreign nationals on their voter rolls, states can use two little-known federal statutes to verify whether a registered voter is an American citizen through the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), according to America First Legal (AFL).

If requested, AFL contends, DHS is required to provide such information.

AFL first points to 8 U.S.C. § 1373(c), which requires the former Immigration and Naturalization Service — which was replaced by the DHS — to “respond to an inquiry by a Federal, State, or local government agency, seeking to verify or ascertain the citizenship or immigration status of any individual within the jurisdiction of the agency for any purpose authorized by law, by providing the requested verification or status information.”

AFL also points to 8 U.S.C. § 1644, which states: Notwithstanding any other provision of Federal, State, or local law, no State or local government entity may be prohibited, or in any way restricted, from sending to or receiving from the Immigration and Naturalization Service information regarding the immigration status, lawful or unlawful, of an alien in the United States.

Accordingly, States and localities should submit requests to DHS to verify the citizenship or immigration status of registered voters on voter rolls where there are any reliable indicators that a voter may not be a U.S. citizen.

In summary, current law makes it illegal for non-citizens to vote in federal elections, but it does NOT require states to obtain documentary proof of U.S. citizenship before an individual registers to vote.  So, illegal aliens voting in federal elections is illegal, but the federally-mandated registration process is a sieve and doesn’t prevent it.

There are two things we need to do right now, this year:

1-    Be sure our local election board is aware of 8 U.S.C. § 1373(c) and 8 U.S.C. § 1644 and utilizes them to weed out illegal voters (Of course, there is zero chance that NY City will do this.) 

2-    Motivating gun owners, who want to preserve the 2nd Amendment protections, to vote in this election is vital in order to offset what must certainly be expected is a flood of illegals voting for Democrats (a party that is unquestionably anti 2nd Amendment.)

Republicans have introduced the Safeguarding American Voter Eligibility (SAVE) Act which would amend the National Voter Registration Act to clarify that states must require proof of citizenship when registering individuals to vote in federal elections.  That bill has no chance of becoming law with Biden as President and the Senate in Democrat hands but with a change in 2025 in administrations and the legislature, it could be enacted. 

You will be voting for more than just the 2nd Amendment in this election.  You will be voting to protect your vote in future elections.  We lose this one and we can expect even more laws that negate our votes.
