BREAKING: The SAVE Act, which requires proof of citizenship to vote in federal elections, has passed in the House.

On Wednesday House Republicans and a handful of Democrats approved a bill that expands proof-of-citizenship requirements to vote in federal elections. In addition the legislation imposes voter roll purge requirements on states, legislation that has been called for by former President Donald J. Trump.

The legislation — formally titled the Safeguard American Voter Eligibility (SAVE) Act — cleared the chamber in a 221-198 vote, with five Democrats voting yes. It now heads to the Senate, where it will mostly be DOA due to opposition from the slim Democratic controlled majority.

Open borders President Biden has vowed to veto the measure.

Far left progressives deceptively insist the bill which makes non-citizens voting, illegal — is redundant, and as with Voter ID laws, argue that its provisions will more likely lead to U.S. citizens being denied their right to vote.

Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.), meanwhile, argued on the House floor Wednesday that the legislation is necessary because noncitizens have voted in U.S. elections despite it being illegal to do so.

“Even though it’s already illegal, this is happening,” Johnson said.

In May, Johnson told reporters, “we all know, intuitively, that a lot of illegals are voting in federal elections. But it’s not been something that is easily provable. We don’t have that number.”

“This legislation will allow us to do exactly that — it will prevent that from happening. And if someone tries to do it, it will now be unlawful within the states,” he added.
