Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senator David Vitter (R-La) has introduced a proposed bill, the Project Voter Integrity Act S. 3579, which would make it a federal felony and an expedited deportation offense for any illegal alien and noncitizen who votes in federal elections. Undocumented immigrants would be subject to deportation under the Immigration and Nationality Act, if the bill is approved by Congress.
Senator Vitter claims and estimated that tens of thousands of illegal aliens have registered to vote in the U.S., but he failed to provide any actual proof or any crime statistics of mass numbers of illegal aliens charged, convicted of voting or committing voter fraud along with the bill on September 20, when he introduced the bill.
In a news release Vitter stated, "While this may sound bizarre to a lot of folks in Washington, illegal aliens and noncitizens have no constitutional right to vote in American elections. And they certainly shouldn't influence the outcomes. Louisianians and the rest of America understand this as common sense," said Vitter. "My bill injects some of that common sense and puts teeth into voter laws so we can uphold the integrity of American elections. Of course we want immigrants to become voters once they become citizens, but our election system and our right to vote are being taken advantage of because of weak enforcement."
Senator Vitter's bill has been stalled and became temporarily moot since, Congress ended their session and recessed until after the November elections.
Democrats are claiming Senator Vitter is just attempting to create voter hysteria with his bill before the November presidential elections. It's common sense that noncitizens can't vote and it's illegal and already a crime for undocumented immigrants to vote, according to Democrats.
