Subcommittee Chairmen DeSantis and Jordan Opening Statements on the President’s Immigration Executive Action and Its Impact on Elections

Chairman DeSantis

“Today’s hearing is about upholding the integrity of our elections and ensuring that every legal vote counts. Non-citizen voting undermines voter confidence and damages the integrity of federal and state elections.”

“A study that was released last year found that some non-citizens do participate in U.S. election and this participation has already had a meaningful effect in election outcomes, including Electoral College votes and congressional elections.”

Chairman Jordan

“Is it fair for non-citizens to participate in our elections? This is an issue.”

“Let’s remember what got us here. Twenty-two times the president said what he couldn’t do what he turned around and did. His actions violated the rule of law and the Constitution”.
