Growing Concern Over Biden EO And Voting Rights Act Facilitating Voter Registration for Illegals

The integrity of American elections is in danger, again, from Democrats who want to open up US elections to illegals, and there is growing concern that it will all unfold before the next Presidential election.

In a bold move, Mississippi’s Secretary of State, Michael Watson, has taken aim at a controversial executive order signed by President Joe Biden, alleging it is being misused to register ineligible convicts and even illegals to vote.

The order, dated March 7, 2021, was intended to address racial discrimination and bolster voting rights but has since sparked controversy over its implementation.

In a letter addressed to Attorney General Merrick Garland, Watson expressed deep concerns over what he perceives as a federal overreach into state matters. He accused the Department of Justice (DOJ) of deviating from its traditional law enforcement mission to engage in voter registration and get-out-the-vote efforts. According to Watson, this shift has led to attempts to register individuals, including potentially ineligible felons, and has coerced state and local officials into facilitating these efforts.

At the heart of Watson’s objections lies the allegation that the executive order is forcing agencies like the U.S. Marshals Service to modify agreements with jails, potentially facilitating the registration of ineligible prisoners to vote. Watson pointed out that this program creates numerous opportunities for ineligible individuals, including those with fleeting ties to Mississippi and convicted felons, to be registered improperly.

Watson raised specific concerns about the dissemination of misleading information to prisoners regarding their voting rights. He highlighted the risk of providing such information to ineligible non-citizens, potentially encouraging them to illegally register to vote, thereby exposing themselves to legal repercussions beyond their immigration status.

Moreover, Watson emphasized the urgency of addressing this issue, particularly with a presidential election looming just months away. He underscored the need for transparency regarding the DOJ’s activities within Mississippi’s prisons and called on states to push back against what he perceives as a threat to election integrity.

In response to Watson’s letter, the Honest Elections Project’s Executive Director, Jason Snead, applauded the move, characterizing the executive order as a partisan scheme that undermines voter confidence. Snead criticized the Biden administration for allegedly using taxpayer dollars to advance its political agenda, including mobilizing youth voters through left-wing organizations.

Despite efforts by Fox News Digital to solicit comments from the White House and the Department of Justice, no response was received at the time of reporting.

Watson’s letter marks a significant escalation in the ongoing debate over voting rights and election integrity, setting the stage for potential legal and political battles ahead. As the nation grapples with these issues, the integrity of the electoral process remains a paramount concern for lawmakers and citizens alike.

This happens when US Senator, Mike Lee (R-UT) have voiced a similar concern.

“Not a single Democratic witness in Congress affirmed the notion that only citizens should have the right to vote in federal elections,” stated Senator Mike Lee during a Senate Judiciary Hearing on the John Lewis Voting Rights Act. Each witness, when asked for a straightforward “yes” or “no” response, failed to firmly support this principle.

Executive Director of The Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law Damon T. Hewitt stated, “We don’t have a position about non-citizens voting in federal elections.” President of Southwest Voter Registration Education Project Lydia Camarillo emphasized the role of state law in determining federal election voting eligibility, while acknowledging no stance on federal government involvement.

Director of the ACLU’s Voting Rights Project Sophia Lin Lakin reiterated federal law prohibiting non-citizen voting, focusing on enabling eligible voters to cast their ballots without citizenship proof requirements. Only Republican witnesses Maureen Riordan and Hans von Spakovsky explicitly opposed non-citizen voting.

Regarding the requirement for voters to provide documentary proof of citizenship, responses varied. Hewitt suggested considering the impact of such requirements, Camarillo deemed the question redundant, and Lakin argued against it, labeling it discriminatory. Riordan and Spakovsky supported citizenship proof requirements.

Senator Lee expressed concern over the witnesses’ hesitancy to unequivocally support citizenship-based voting criteria. The John Lewis Voting Rights Act, if passed, could significantly impact election administration by federalizing processes and limiting state autonomy. Recent legal developments, such as a federal judge’s ruling in favor of Arizona’s citizenship proof law, underscore the ongoing debate over voting regulations and federal intervention.
