H. Res. 1071

                In the House of Representatives, U. S.,

                                                    September 26, 2018.
Whereas voting is fundamental to a functioning democracy;
Whereas the Constitution prohibits discrimination in voting based on race, sex, 
        poll taxes, and age;
Whereas it is of paramount importance that the United States maintains the 
        legitimacy of its elections and protects them from interference, 
        including interference from foreign threats and illegal voting;
Whereas the city of San Francisco, California, is allowing non-citizens, 
        including illegal immigrants, to register to vote in school board 
        elections; and
Whereas Federal law prohibits non-citizens from voting in elections for Federal 
        office: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved, That the House of Representatives recognizes that allowing illegal 
immigrants the right to vote devalues the franchise and diminishes the voting 
power of United States citizens.
            Attest:

                                                                          Clerk.
