Congress Took A Serious Move Against Migrants
As we move closer to the presidential election in 2024, it is highly likely that illegal immigration will be the issue that millions of Americans care the most about above all others. According to a report that was published not too long ago, non-citizens now make up more than one percent of the population in the United States.
Democrat leaders continue to advocate for them to be granted the same rights as full and legal citizens. Despite this, a significant bill was just approved by the House, which is currently controlled by the Republicans, and 42 Democrats voted for it. If a person wants to vote in an election, they should be a citizen of the United States, according to the results of most polls. This is the belief held by the vast majority of Americans. A valid photo identification is required to vote in many parts of the United States, as it is in most of the rest of the world.

However, some left-leaning leaders argue that this requirement is racist or unfair to certain people. These justifications, however, are not going to cut it in the House. A resolution to preserve the status quo regarding this significant regulation in the nation’s Capitol has just been approved by this chamber. This bill would give non-citizens the right to vote in local elections.
but not in federal elections; consequently, they would be unable to participate in the voting process for the presidential election in 2024. The participation of 42 Democrats demonstrates that this is, for the most part, an effort that is supported by members of both parties, and that the majority of legislators are in agreement with it.
Nevertheless, it would still need to be approved by the Senate, and the White House is likely to be opposed to it. This week, the House of Representatives also approved another resolution, which aims to prevent the District of Columbia from revising its criminal code. This is in accordance with the Home Rule, which states that Congress possesses the authority to review any legislation that is passed by the D.C. Council prior to it being enacted as a law.

The legislation that they are attempting to prevent from becoming law wouldn’t take effect until October 2025, and its supporters argue that it modernizes an antiquated system. However, detractors assert that this is merely a “soft-on-crime” move that will result in fewer repercussions for lawbreakers. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a Democrat representing New York, criticized Republicans for their efforts to expand their “support of disenfranchisement” in the “overwhelmingly black city” of Washington, DC.
The Senate, which is unfortunately still controlled by Democrats, will need to vote on both of the bills in question before they can move forward. However, given that 42 Democrats voted in favor of a bill that would prevent non-citizens from voting in federal elections held in the District of Columbia, it is not impossible that the bill will be passed. After that, it will be delivered to President Biden. The issue of election integrity is still very important to millions of voters, and many people believe that you do not have the right to vote in any election if you’re not American.
