House Democrats votes in FAVOR of illegal immigrant voting

It’s unbelievable just how extreme the Democratic Party has become.

House Republicans introduced another Motion to Recommit today on the Democratic bill ‘For the People Act’. The motion was to make a statement against voting by illegal immigrants in localities where that is allow. All but 6 House Democrats voted against the motion:

Here’s more:

WASHINGTON EXAMINER – House Democrats voted Friday to defend localities that allow illegal immigrants to vote in their elections, turning back a GOP attempt to discourage the practice.

The vote marks a stunning reversal from just six months ago, when the chamber — then under GOP control — voted to decry illegal immigrant voting.

“We are prepared to open up the political process and let all of the people come in,” Rep. John Lewis, a Georgia Democrat and hero of the civil rights movement, told colleagues as he led opposition to the GOP measure.

The 228-197 vote came as part of a broader debate on Democrats’ major legislative priority this year, HR 1, the “For the People Act,” which includes historic expansions of voter registration and access, as well as a major rewrite of campaign finance laws.

The measure would have had no practical effect even if it had passed. Illegal immigrants — and indeed noncitizens as a whole — are not legally able to participate in federal elections.

But Republicans had hoped to send a message to localities such as San Francisco, where noncitizens are now allowed to vote in school board elections.

“It sounds like I’m making it up. What kind of government would cancel the vote of its own citizens, and replace it with noncitizens?” said Rep. Dan Crenshaw, Texas Republican.

He pointed to last year’s vote, when 49 Democrats joined the GOP to decry noncitizen voting.

On Friday just six Democrats voted in favor.

A 1996 federal law prohibits noncitizens from voting in federal elections, but there is no prohibition on localities, and indeed a number of jurisdictions allow it, to some extent.

Not only must Democrats become radical socialists in order to run for president in their primary, but they can’t even come out against illegal immigrants voting in elections.

As was pointed out by Crenshaw, 49 Democrats voted against illegal immigrant voting last year. This year, only SIX.

  1. I hope the suburban moms who didn’t like Trump’s tweets are happy with what they voted in.

  2. The Dem party has been committing suicide for quite some time now, but it seems they’ve decided to use a shotgun instead of a slow poison. Apparently they’re so convinced that they’re going to beat Trump in 2020 that they’ve allowed some of the freshmen to spout socialist propaganda and they’ve decided to unmask all the things they’ve been hiding by telling us those things were never going to happen.

  3. Not only are they gonna lose the Jewish vote but they are gonna lose what few moderate Democrats there are left. One can only hope it will be enough to keep them out of the White House.

  4. I have been looking for this for awhile now. I hope it’s ok to post, it’s a long particle and in the democrats playbook. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

    Communist Goals
    [From “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen]
    1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.
    2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.
    3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
    4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
    5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.
    6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.
    7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.
    8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.
    9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.
    10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.
    11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)
    12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
    13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.
    14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.
    15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
    16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
    17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
    18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
    19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
    20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.
    21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
    22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”
    23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”
    24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
    25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
    26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
    27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.”
    28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”
    29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
    30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
    31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.
    32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
    33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.
    34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
    35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.
    36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
    37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
    38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].
    39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
    40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
    41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.
    42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [“]united force[“] to solve economic, political or social problems.
    43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.
    44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.
    45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

    1. Those were actually admitted to the Congressional Record–Appendix, pp. A34-A35
      January 10, 1963.

  5. Piglosi has to make up for all the blue dog democrats that will be jumping ship with all the socialism handcuffing the democrat party.

  6. WOW!!!! REALLY?!?!?! We’ve been saying they wanted the open borders for getting democrat voters and they confirmed it! They’re not hiding anything

  7. Democrats just don’t want us to be a Nation, they want us to have open borders for all and become a socialist nation. They do not value America, perhaps they’d be happier elsewhere……..

    1. I’m sure they would be welcomed in Cuba, Venezuela, the E.U., Honduras, Guatemala and South Africa. I’m sure the white democrats would love the reception they would receive from the black South Africans that are openly advocating the killing of all whites.

  8. Well sure. Ordinary Americans despise them. So they have to turn to non-citizens in order to retain their power. The silver lining to this is that it telegraphs just how worried they are about Americans continuing to support them.

    1. So very true.

      For the first time in their history the democrat party is no longer able to count on their decades long control of 95% of the minority vote. Ever since Trump has been POTUS there has been a great awakening from the black and hispanic population along with millions of their white voters. There is the “blexit movement” where millions of black voters have awakened to realize how they have been brain washed from birth to believe the democrat has their best interests in mind. There is also the #walkaway movement where millions of former democrat voters have also realized that they’ve been victims of democrat lies and deceptions.

      The marxist democrat party has outed themselves as being the great deceivers and liars. They’re in full panic mode and no amount of their continued lies and deceptions are going to win back those citizens that have educated themselves that reality. The want gullible, uneducated and ignorant illegals to flood into this country because they’ll vote for democrats as long as they think they’ll get everything for free.

  9. So an illegal can vote to increase taxes for school budgets, send their kids to that school, benefit from it, not pay taxes, and the Dems encourage this?
    Where is the outrage?

  10. Whatever it takes to stay in power. Unbeliveable any American would vote Dem. Quislings all…..the enemy within!

    1. A couple of days ago I had a local dem politician show up at my front door canvasing for votes. When I asked him what party he was representing he told me the democrat party. That’s when I looked him in his eyes and gladly said, “Nothing personal, but I will never vote for a democrat.” I could see the dejection in his face. As soon as he attempted to try and dispel my resentment I cut him off and said, “Don’t bother wasting my time trying to convince me that the democrat party has any redeeming qualities because it is a verifiable fact that they don’t.” He went on to say, “I’m sorry to hear that you feel that way.” I said, “On the contrary, I’m sorry to see that you still buy their marxist propaganda and lies. Have a nice day.”

      1. Well done my friend!
        My in-laws are all libs, retired teachers, and drive Prius’. Nice people, but I just don’t get it. Some of them even go to church, THAT really blows my mind.

        1. Everyone, but one nephew on my wife’s side of the family is a liberal democrat. You described my wife’s older brother and his wife to a tee. They are retired school teachers and he drives a Prius. He is a study in contrasts. He is all in on the climate change narrative, yet he hunts and is not anti gun. He taught high school chemistry. I love them both dearly because they are good, but politically confused, people. My wife’s dad was a Reagan conservative and we got along quite well. Her mom and dad have both passed on.

  11. Then it is time to pass legislation by referendum to make this illegal too. I am sure the results would be startling when push comes to wallet.

  12. Since it appears that these Dems have not read the Constitution themselves, does anyone ever read it to them?

    1. Why bother since their reaction would be to stick their fingers in their ears and yell, “Blah blah blah! I can’t here you!”

  13. Never mind Russian interference. Illegals voting? The rest of the election whereby legal citizens do the voting is a mere sham. And I’ll no longer waste my time.

  14. James Woods
    “House votes in favor of illegal immigrant voting.” Hard to believe an American would ever have to wake up in the morning to this headline.

  15. Will Mueller open an investigation regarding election collusion between the democrat party and foreign governments?

    (I won’t hold my breath.) :fire:

    1. I believe I.G., Michael Horowitz and Special Federal Prosecutor, John Huber are doing that.

        1. Which would also give her the electoral vote, if my state and the others get their way. There’s a push to give all electoral votes to the winner of the pop vote in several blue states.

  16. The Dumbocrats are dismantling everything this country stands for…such as law and order. Those sorry *#%@@s would rather stay in power than to make immigrants follow our laws. The Dumbocrats are lawless and useless in my opinion.

      1. Hey, Nana, I’m not worried so much about myself because I’m an old coot, but I do worry about the country in which my kids and grandchildren are going to live.

        1. @army_pilot1967 Hey Army, my hubby and I were just saying the same thing the other night , it’s a worry but we’ve tried to keep them up to date and thankfully they are well informed . The bad part is the spinless Republicans don’t seem to have the will to stop the demons.

          1. I’ve been having the same conversations with my wife and son. I also told my son to stop allowing his children to get vaccinated. I asked him, “Have you ever questioned what is in those vaccines?” He sheepishly said, “No.” That’s when I gave him some information to research. I told him that by the time he gets through most of it he won’t want to subject his children to vaccinations again.

  17. So there was 6 that somehow disconnected from the Borg… Just how did that happen Nancy are you losing your grip?

  18. Looking on the bright side, Dems obviously feel they can’t secure wins without illegal votes. If you’re going to steal elections, you might as well make sure you can get all the fake votes you can.

    1. @paladin Hey Paladin, where are you in the country? I’m going to call my vet to see if there’s anyone in your area that does what he does.

      1. I’m in the DFW/Denton TX area. The only vet close to me is my country vet. They wanted me to go into DFW proper to have my dog see a specialist. I’m okay with that. I’m not okay with $5K.
        With the info, I might be able to get my country vet to do whatever treatment is recommended. Thanks!

  19. I think TERM LIMITS is a big part of the answer to stop these animals from pulling this crap – lust for power.

    1. Yup. And the ONLY way that’s going to happen is with an Article V Convention of States.

    2. I do support the idea of term limits for all the right reasons. However, it’s also a “Catch 22 scenario”.

    1. FACT: Leading up to the 2012 election, Obama’s fellow communist and A.G., Eric Holder sued every state that was attempting to pass voter ID laws. Once the elction was over it was revealed that Obama won in states that did not have voter ID laws and he lost in states that did. Therefore, it goes without saying that we must have stringent voter ID laws in this country. Doing so would destroy the democrat’s pro open borders, pro mass migration lie.

  20. EVERY single on of those who voted FOR this to pass (allowing illegals to vote), should immediately be removed from office. This is illegal and unconstitutional. The democrats are NOT rational at all – or sane. They are anti-American imo.

    1. The Devil’s Party. The Anarchist Party. The Communist Party. Take your pick. But they need a more realistic party name.

  21. Appalling. We have one party that now spends all it’s time increasing and protecting it’s power. Democrats are openly showing their true colors. All they care about is Democrat power and obtaining a way to make the Democrat party the permanent dominant party.

  22. May get chastised for this opinion, but this was nothing more than a show vote from bunch of do-nothing republicans. It is already illegal for illegals to vote in fed elections. If the republicans are so worried about the illegal situation then why didn’t they do something about it when they had the House, Senate & Presidency?

    This is just show for election ad fodder. Republicans will have to do something of substance to get my vote for re-election.

    1. Forget what the Republicans did……….do you understand the Democrats just voted to back illegals to vote? That is what you should be upset about.

    2. @homer It gets the Dems on the record. This is Part One. It will only be effective if they use Part Two, use this vote to hit them hard next year during the election. And what’s wrong with that? Too many people, brainwashed by the media, have no idea how radically Left the Dems have become.

      1. There really is no excuse for Americans to be so thoroughly brainwashed, especially given the sources of information we have available. Sadly those democrat voting citizens do not want to listen to any opposing views. I think a great many of them are afraid to learn they’ve been wrong all along.

        1. @conserve-58 No excuse? Really? Most people aren’t plugged into politics like we are, we follow it like some people follow their favorite sports teams. Sure, people SHOULD, but most are just living their lives, raising their kids, and barely read headlines. And when they do get the news too often it’s from biased sources. More than that, the entire social culture has conspired, YES, conspired to make it uncomfortable to go against the prevailing liberal thought. So yes, it stinks, but I blame the brainwashers, not so much the victims.

    3. On one hand I agree with you Homer, but it is also a good way to get the dems to expose themselves. I’m all for more of these show votes!

    4. There is nothing to chastise because you presented a common sense and rational opinion. However, I understand your reason for not wanting to vote for the republicans, especially seeing how they continue to disappoint and let us down when we give them the mid term victories we need.

      The reason why the GOP RINOS keep getting re-elected is because the RINOS have the financial resources to out spend the grass roots conservatives. Dan Bongino can attest to how daunting it is to go against the deep pocketed RINOS.

  23. Well, we knew this was coming. Why do you think these leftists don’t want to secure the border? As far as I’m concerned, these corrupt politicians should all be in jail. Disgusting. :exclamation:

  24. This is getting surreal…… this the Dems collusion with illegal trespassers into the country?
    No MS-13 member left behind………or what?

      1. They are getting more and more blatantly open about not caring. Sometimes I wonder if they’ve even read it.

  25. Just explain to me how a non-citizen can vote and I’ll side with you. Until then, pick them up and toss em over the border.

    1. Not to be disparaging but from the size of some of them I’ve seen trying to climb the wall you’d need a crane to do it.

      1. Yup and there goes the left’s bleeding heart narrative that many of these people are starving.

        I kind of feel sorry for the poor slob standing underneath the behemoth trying to push them over. One slip of one hand and you could hear screams of “LOOK OUT! INCOMING!”

    2. Pretty simple, they just show up, show NO ID, vote Democrat, go to the next polling area, sho NO ID again, vote Democrat, rinse and repeat.

  26. We all knew this was going to be the path to their end game. There is a lot of truth in this meme. Link not posting?

  27. If the Democrats keep it up the only voters they will have left will be illegals and communists. With their agenda of socialism, infanticide and anti semitism the average American, if they haven’t already, will turn away from them.

    1. @sjmom I hope you’re right, but right now, I have members of my family who are so indoctrinated by the hatred media that they will vote for anyone against Trump. I never thought members of my family could be so indoctrinated. I can’t even talk to them about anything as it turns into an argument and I refuse to do that with family. It makes me afraid that there are many out there who are indoctrinated who will do anything to get rid of Trump even if it means destroying our country. It’s very sad and discouraging.

      1. Rae, I understand. There will be some whose minds will not be changed. If these people are Christians point out to them the infanticide and also warn them they will be accountable to God for their vote. Then pray for them. If they ‘re not Christians pray they will convert. That, in and of itself, might change their minds.

        1. @sjmom The sad thing for me is that besides her three siblings, my mom has bought into this. Even though we’re Catholic and she’s actually the church organist at our church, she has always been pro-choice since I was very young. I, of course, followed her years ago when I was young, but came to listen to Dennis Prager who really made me look at the issue honestly and changed my heart.

          I’ve tried to get her to listen to Prager but she has no interest. My two sisters (the third one is like her, very liberal) and I send her information, and she will agree with some things, but the Trump hatred has sent her, my one sister and my two uncles and one aunt, over the edge. They were even pulling for Bernie in the last election, which I couldn’t believe.

          I pray for them every day but I refuse to fight with them. We engage on things here and there, but I and my two sisters don’t let it get out of hand, because we love our family and don’t want to separate ourselves over politics. But it saddens me to no end knowing that my mother would vote to destroy this country because she hates Trump so badly. :whew:

          1. @rae-from-minnesota I feel your pain. My brother, aside from my son, my closest living relative, is an Uber-lib. And we absolutely adore each other but cannot talk politics. Because we live on opposite coasts we don’t see each other very often, but when we do, or when we speak on the phone, we decided a long time ago that our loving relationship was way more important than our political opinions.

            I hope you all can find a way separate that part of your lives and come together. Life is short and family means everything.

            1. @nc checks and balances Thanks for your response. Just so you know, we do have a loving relationship and I wouldn’t jeopardize that. It’s just sad knowing that you have close relatives that just doesn’t see anything the same as you.

              That’s why I love coming to the Right Scoop, it give me a chance to interact with people that mostly agree with my political view but also life view. Scoop runs a great site and it’s really the only place I make comments besides a few at Daily Wire.

              1. @rae-from-minnesota I feel the same way. I love this place!

                I’m so glad it’s good with your family. And btw, Dennis Prager also has had a huge influence on my life. We (you and I) have a lot in common!

            1. @sjmom What’s amazing to me, is that we go to a very conservative Catholic church, but there are many members that are liberal. I can’t understand it either because our Pastor just preached last weekend before lent began about the divisions in the country and the issue of life before us is so important and vital to our faith.

              It boggles my mind and I can’t process the mind-set that has people still thinking that the left opinion is good, especially in light of what has occurred with the states legalizing abortion up to and including post birth!

              Praying hard every day for people’s hearts to be softened and that they can be enlightened (me too for that matter, I’m sure I have a log in my eye)!

              1. Best thing you can do is keep praying. We all must because our nation’s future is at stake. God is faithful so keep the faith.

      2. The vast majority of mine and my wife’s families are indoctrinated liberal zombies with severe cases of TDS. Every single one of them are mocking birds that spew the exact same ignorant and uneducated leftist talking points.

    2. Let’s not dismiss the thoroughly indoctrinated millenials that went through our marxist controled education system.

    1. Good point. Senate Republicans should vote to impeach House Democrats. LOL!

      😉 😀

      1. Just saw on twitter (Jewish News Service?) that Cruz is working on a resolution to condemn only anti semitism

    2. @landscaper Landscaper, I believe that is TREASON. It’s utterly disgusting and you know there are many illegals that have voted and gotten away with it. 😡

      1. You are so correct Tracy! If we had elected “Low Energy Jeb”, or that guy who’s dad was a postman, we’d be witnessing the end of our republic right now.

  28. And all this time I thought elected officials had to swear to uphold the Constitution.
    My bad…

    1. No the constitution is only there to restrain conservatives and anyone who wants to make America strong and prosperous.

      Welcome to post-constitutional America.

  29. “But we have to vote for Democrats to destroy Trump!” – NeverTrumper

    Yeah and the country too.

  30. It seems like every day the extremist Dems, which is now the majority of Dems, show the American People how little they care about the country and it’s citizens. The radicalization is nearly complete.

    Amazing how Pelosi has completely lost control of her party and the three Bigots are now running things.

    1. How is this the Republicans fault? There’s a lot you can blame them for but this isn’t one of them. This was proposed by Democrats, written by Democrats and voted upon by Democrats. Only one Republican voted for it and hopefully the fool will be primaried soon.

    2. If you’re referring to the 2 years they controlled both house of congress I would whole heartedly agree!

  31. The good news is that the Democrats are calling out loud and clear who they are with the senile Pelosi “in charge” and the militant freshman radicals pushing the agenda. How anyone could vote for them in 2020 is beyond me and defies common sense.

      1. He’s voted against every immigration restriction and the travel ban. He’s open borders through and through.
