Democratic Governor Deals Blow to Immigration Activists by Rejecting Sanctuary City Push

Kansas Democratic Governor Laura Kelly is diverting from many other Governors in her party and refusing to create a sanctuary city for illegal migrants. Instead, Kelly chooses to focus on bettering her community and the lives of her constituents.

“Both Republicans and Democrats in Washington have failed to address immigration issues for decades,” Kelly said in the statement. “We need a national solution and we need it now” said Kelly about supporting the Republican-back bill.

Kelly signed the bill on Monday “that will thwart hard-fought efforts by the Unified Government of Wyandotte County/Kansas City, Kansas, to issue municipal IDs to residents unable to get legal photo IDs.”

Kelly made a bold move, as she is up for re-election in November. The law originated with Republican Attorney General Derek Schmidt, who is expected to be the Republican candidate running against Kelly.

Schmidt objected to the ordinance, saying Wyandotte County would become a “sanctuary jurisdiction for illegal immigrants,” and calling on the Legislature to ban sanctuary cities in the state.

Schmidt said Kelly did not have much option other than to sign “the veto-proof” bill. The “bipartisan support for this bill in the Legislature demonstrated its importance,” he said. “Under this new law, Kansas law enforcement will be able to resume working professionally with federal immigration authorities … and not be silenced by a patchwork of local sanctuary city gag orders.”

      Why are democrats pushing sanctuary cities. Can’t they see the damage it creates for American lower income people. I guess they don’t care.

    Ironically Sanctuary Cities themselves are illegal.
    Laws apply to everyone or else they apply to no one.
    The Dems think that they can pick and choose which laws to follow.
    We need to elect people who will both push back and undo the fake laws that the Far Left have created. Please vote.

    When there is such a shortage in the grocery stores why bring in all the aliens, especially the criminals. We should take care of our own first. Stop Joe Biden from giving out free money, put our people back to work. Employers are begging for workers but we want good workers who are not illegal aliens.

    Same for Biden’s sudden reversal on ‘allowing’ new oil drilling permits on Federal land. These are all head fakes contrived by the Democrat Party leading to the 2022 election season.

    She signed a veto proof bill against sanctuary cities, just after vetoeing a bill to keep “transgenders” from competing in girls sports. So courageous.

GOP bill proposes extra measures to ensure noncitizens are unable to vote in federal elections

GOP members of both the U.S. House and Senate introduced a bill to add safeguards to ensure that non U.S. citizens who are already prohibited from voting in federal elections, do not do so. The bill seeks to amend the National Voter Registration Act to require documentary proof of United States citizenship to register to vote.

The Center Square reports that It would require states to obtain proof of citizenship – in person – when registering an individual to vote. Applicants would have to provide proof of citizenship when they register to vote in person, when applying for a motor vehicle license, and when applying to vote by mail. The bill lists accepted citizenship documentation and requirements for voter registration agencies.

U.S. Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, led a coalition of 49 Republicans to introduce the Safeguard American Voter Eligibility (SAVE) Act in the U.S. House. U.S. Sen. Mike Lee of Utah, with several cosponsors, introduced the same bill in the Senate.

Citing the border crisis and the greatest number of foreign nationals illegally entering the country in U.S. history, the measure’s supporters expressed alarm that instead of being deported, many are being registered to vote.

“There is currently an unprecedented and a clear and present danger to the integrity of our election system,” House Speaker Mike Johnson said. “And that is the threat of non-citizens and illegal aliens voting in our elections. In the last five and a half months or so, I’ve been to over 101 cities doing events all around the country in more than half the states. The first or second question that I’m asked in every public forum is about election security. Americans are deeply concerned about this. And it doesn’t matter where you live or whether you’re in a blue state or a red state, everyone’s concerned.”

Johnson blamed President Joe Biden and his administration’s policies for for what he described as widespread concern about election integrity.

“… we now have so many non-citizens in the country that if only one out of 100 of those voted, they would cast hundreds of thousands of votes,” the speaker added. “And since our elections are so razor thin in these days that we’re in, just a few precincts in a few states decide the makeup of Congress and who is elected to the White House. This is a dangerously high number, and it’s a great concern to millions and millions of Americans. It could obviously change the outcome of our elections, and this is not an empty threat or concern.”

It is already a federal crime for non-citizens to vote in a federal election. Despite this, Johnson said, “no current mechanism to ensure only those registering or voting are actually citizens. … If a nefarious actor wants to intervene in our elections, all they have to do is check a box on a form and sign their name. That’s it. That’s all that’s required. And there’s a very small chance that illegal would get caught [because] states do not have the election infrastructure in place to confirm what they’ve said.”

Johnson said noncitizens “can simply go to their local welfare office or the DMV and register to vote there,” adding that “states are currently prohibited from asking someone to prove that they’re a citizen when they use the federal voter registration form.”

He also gave examples of “a growing number of localities” that are “blurring the lines for non-citizens by allowing them to vote in municipal local elections.

“You might not know this, but non-citizens are voting,” he warned Americans. “Democrats have expressed a desire to turn on citizens and voters. That’s what this open border has been all about.”

Roy said the proposed SAVE Act “would thwart Democrat efforts to cement one-party rule by upholding and strengthening current law that permits only U.S. citizens to vote in Federal elections.”

Lee said the bill should “pass right away” and unanimously in both houses of Congress. “The only reason to oppose this … would be if you want noncitizens to vote.”

It also would create a new program requiring the Department of Homeland Security and Social Security Administration to share information with state registration systems. States would be required to identify noncitizens attempting to register to vote by accessing data in DHS’ Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements program and the SSA’s Social Security Number Verification Service. The information would be compared with data from state agencies that supply state identification cards or driver’s licenses.

The bill also would require states to remove non-citizens from existing voter rolls and increases federal penalties for those who register non-citizens to vote in federal elections.
