Republicans are moving to ban federal funds to states and cities that allow non-citizens to vote.
While Donald Trump wasn’t able to come up with what he needed to reverse the decision of the 2020 election, there is absolutely NO denying that there are some loopholes and inconsistencies in voting laws that really need to be patched up before we run in to new problems in the future.
That’s why Senator Marco Rubio of Florida is leading a coalition of Republicans in Congress to sponsor legislation that would ban federal funding to states or localities that allow foreigners to vote in U.S. elections.
“It’s ridiculous that states are allowing foreign citizens to vote,” Rubio said. “However, if states and localities do let those who are not U.S. citizens to vote in elections, they shouldn’t get U.S. citizen taxpayer money.”
The plan is already being endorsed by Senators Steve Daines of Montana, Thom Tillis of North Carolina, John Kennedy of Louisiana, Rick Scott of Florida, and James Lankford of Oklahoma.
Representative Jeff Duncan of South Carolina plans to introduce companion legislation in the House of Representatives.
