Welfare offices are giving out voter registration forms to illegal immigrants without proof of citizenship

"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." 


Non-citizens are getting voter registration forms all over the US through welfare agencies without requiring proof of citizenship. In every state with the exception of Arizona, applicants for welfare benefits or driver's licenses can receive voter registration forms without needing proof of citizenship.  

Under current law, there is no requirement to give proof of citizenship on voter registration forms, even though it is illegal for a non-citizen to claim they are a citizen in order to vote in a federal election, per a new report from the New York Post. However, millions of immigrants, both illegal and illegal, are sometimes eligible for welfare benefits that allow them to obtain voter registration forms.  

The National Voter Registration Act of 1993 required that states register voters either at agencies where people can apply for public benefits or at the Department of Motor Vehicles. Additionally, it is required of these public offices to hand over voter registration forms to those who hand in the application papers for certain welfare benefits. If an applicant claims to be a US citizen, they can obtain a voter registration form and they can then vote without proof of citizenship.  

GOP members in the House Administration Committee approved the Safeguard American Voter Eligibility (SAVE) Act in order to have states be given proof of citizenship when anyone registers to vote by mail or at a DMV office.  

Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) told the outlet, “While 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." 

House Speaker Mike Johnson added in a statement in approval of the bill, “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." 

Ryan Walker, executive vice president at the 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." 

“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," he added.  

According to the report from the Post, hundreds of non-citizens have been caught attempting to register to vote in federal elections and casting ballots in different political races. Hans von Spakovsky, a former member of the Federal Election Commission said in regard to the issue, “It’s a real problem, not an imaginary problem." He presented many such examples in congressional testimony on May 23 before the approval of the SAVE Act.
