    House votes to support illegal immigrant voting in local elections

    This is your Democrat Party


    House Democrats voted Friday to defend localities that allow illegal immigrants to vote in their elections, turning back a GOP attempt to discourage the practice.
    The vote marks a stunning reversal from just six months ago, when the chamber — then under GOP control — voted to decry illegal immigrant voting.
    “We are prepared to open up the political process and let all of the people come in,” Rep. John Lewis, a Georgia Democrat and hero of the civil rights movement, told colleagues as he led opposition to the GOP measure.
    The 228-197 vote came as part of a broader debate on Democrats’ major legislative priority this year, HR 1, the “For the People Act,” which includes historic expansions of voter registration and access, as well as a major rewrite of campaign finance laws.
    The measure would have had no practical effect even if it had passed. Illegal immigrants — and indeed noncitizens as a whole — are not legally able to participate in federal elections.

    Yep, as Lewis shows us, the civil rights movement has been hijacked by lunatics. John Lewis may have been part of the original civil rights movement, but like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, he has proven to be an opportunistic scumbag.

    it is about time for a civil war.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.


    I pledge allegiance to the Constitution as written and understood by this nation's founders, and to the Republic it created, an indivisible union of sovereign States, with liberty and justice for all.

    As usual you left out the republicans, who are known for Gerrymandering as well; your posting would have more credibility if you included both parties.

    Why would I include the Repubs who are doing it less than the Democrats. Most rural areas are not gerrymandered. They are either Republican based or Democrat based. Who controls the most major cities in the US, Repubs or Democrats?

    I never said the Repubs don't do it. But then who was I talking about? Was I talking about Repubs or Democrats? Usually people that talked about something, talk about that which is associated to what they are talking about. Seems I was talking about Democrats. Wasn't I?

    Your post implied only democrats do this; I agree democrats do this, but so do republicans as well. Doesn't matter if republicans don't do it as much; do two wrongs make a right? Expanding on your answer would have made a big difference. That's all I'm saying.
