As the Biden administration continues to struggle with a border crossings surge caused by the president’s welcoming rhetoric, Democrats are seeking to pass a massive election overhaul bill that would change certain voting laws to allow illegal aliens to vote in U.S. elections without penalties.
Multiple provisions in the 800-plus pages of H.R. 1 would grant foreign migrants who have yet to become citizens the opportunity to vote, opening the door for corruption, exploitation, and a sudden hike in votes for Democratic candidates.
One of the most sweeping mandates would compel states to engage in automatic voter registration using the information stored in government databases, “ensuring duplicate registrations and that millions of illegal immigrants spread across the country are quickly registered to vote,” as The Daily Signal noted. While federal law still prohibits noncitizens from voting, this process would grant local election agencies the ability to determine if someone is a citizen and eligible to vote or not.
Section 1015 of the bill also ensures that aliens who are illegally registered “by error” can’t and won’t be prosecuted by the federal government or states.
Another section of the legislation requires the creation of “independent” commissions, which would be granted the authority to redraw congressional districts based on “total population,” as previously outlined in Evenwel v. Abbott. This means that as record-breaking numbers of migrants make their way across the border and the Biden administration refuses to turn away unaccompanied minors, partisan bureaucrats in charge of agencies such as the Federal Emergency Management Agency and Health and Human Services can use newly opened holding centers, some of which are hours from the border, to strategically inflate the population of a given area and manipulate how a district is drawn.
