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.
