Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives voted against a Republican motion in HR1 proceedings that would have recognized that illegal aliens voting inherently undermines the votes of U.S. citizens.
“House defeats GOP MTR to HR1 on near party line vote expressing the sense of Congress that allowing illegal immigrants the right to vote devalues the franchise and diminishes the voting power of United States citizens. 6 Democrats voted Yes and 1 Republican voted No,” Craig Caplan said on Twitter.

In effect, 228 Democrats in the House voted in favor of letting illegal aliens to vote. One Republican, Justin Amash of Michigan, also voted in favor of the motion.
HR1 is a wide-sweeping resolution pushed by the political left.
HR1, which is scheduled to be voted upon Friday in the House, is a controversial bill on the whole. The bill would remove the power of states to create voting districts, instead giving that power to “independent” commissions. It would also have wide ranging ramifications in the arena of campaign finance and impose a code of ethics for Supreme Court Justices.
Thursday, 126 Democrats voted in favor of a resolution that would have allowed 16-year-olds to vote. That resolution ultimately failed.
