Report confirms welfare offices are handing out voter registration to illegals, no proof of citizenship required


Once again, attempts by the Biden administration to mock conspiracy theories about elections turned out to be rooted in reality.

When House Speaker Mike Johnson announced earlier this year that he was introducing a bill prohibiting illegal immigrants from voting in federal elections, he was ripped by the Biden-Harris campaign and complicit media outlets for reacting to something that certainly was not happening under this administration.

Well, it’s another day and it turns out, the concerns were not unfounded.

According to a new report, it seems those in the country illegally are getting voter registration forms in states across the nation.

“Welfare offices and other agencies in 49 US states are providing voter registration forms to migrants without requiring proof of citizenship, leading Republicans and conservatives to call for swift federal action to stop the handouts,” the New York Post reported this month.

“Every state but Arizona — which recently passed a law barring the practice on state but not federal forms — gives applicants for either welfare benefits, driver’s licenses, or in some cases, mail-in ballots voter registration forms without demanding proof of citizenship,” the outlet noted. “There is currently no requirement on federal voting forms to provide proof of US citizenship, though it is illegal to falsely claim one is a citizen or for a non-citizen to cast a ballot in a federal election.”

However, the same migrants who could qualify for benefits with their asylum and refugee status would end up at locations where voters would also be getting registered.

“The National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) of 1993 ordered states to register voters at the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and agencies where Americans apply for public benefits — and those offices are required by federal law to hand over the registration forms along with the application papers,” the New York Post explained. “If an applicant attests that they are a US citizen, that is considered valid on its face and the person is registered to vote.”

The Safeguard American Voter Eligibility (SAVE) Act introduced by Rep. Chip Roy (R-Texas), was approved by the House Administration Committee last month in an effort to ensure proof of citizenship is presented whenever anyone registers to vote at welfare agency offices, DMV locations or by mail.

“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,”  Roy 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,” Ryan Walker, executive VP at Heritage Action, told The Post.“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.”

“It’s a real problem, not an imaginary problem,” Hans von Spakovsky, manager of the Election Law Reform Initiative at the Heritage Foundation, told the outlet.

Spakovsky, a former member of the Federal Election Commission (FEC), presented testimony to Congress last month filled with examples of non-Americans who have been caught casting ballots.

“Preventing non-citizens and illegal aliens from registering and voting in American elections should be a 100% issue in Congress,” Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) told The Post. “Unfortunately, Democrats have taken the stance that it never happens — which is false — so we shouldn’t give states the tools to ensure it doesn’t happen — which is absurd.”

It wouldn’t be the first time Democrats have told Americans not to believe their lyin’ eyes.
