Government records show aliens are getting registered to vote and casting ballots.

(Washington, D.C.) – May 15, 2024: Tomorrow, Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) President J. Christian Adams, is testifying before House Administration Committee on preventing alien voting and other foreign election interference.

WHAT:  House Administration Committee on Preventing Noncitizen Voting and Other Foreign Interference

WHEN:  Thursday, May 16 at 10:15AM

The National Voter Registration Act’s (NVRA) federal form prohibits citizenship proof at the outset and requires to little proof to allow election officials to perform citizenship verification.

“We need to remember that voting is solely a right for American citizens and every effort should be made to preserve it,” said PILF President, J. Christian Adams. “Every time we fail to modernize systems that allow foreign participation is another wound to our nation’s trust in the process. Once upon a time fixing foreigners voting would have been an issue with not only bipartisan agreement, but also bipartisan solutions.”

For nearly a decade, PILF has harvested government records of noncitizen voter cancellation reports generated by local officials. These studies were carried out in places like Illinois, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, California, Texas, and sanctuary cities across the nation. PILF has brought and won federal trial and appellate court cases in North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Texas to secure access to records relating to foreign nationals registering and voting. The Foundation has an active lawsuit against Alameda County, CA for failing to disclose records relating to foreigners registering to vote.  

J. Christian Adams’s prepared opening statement can be read here.
