Jen Psaki Obliterates GOP Bill Criminalizing Non-Citizens Voting in Elections: ‘That’s Already a Crime!

‘The speaker of the House and his fellow Republicans are falsely claiming that millions of noncitizens illegally vote’

PSAKI: "'We know intuitively, but it's not easily provable.' I mean, that's like saying, 'I don’t know it for a fact, but I think it’s true.' So, Mike Johnson desperately wants you to trust his vibes, basically. But what he’s talking about just isn’t a thing. Don’t take it from me, that is according to the Brennan Center which found that non-citizen voting is vanishingly rare. That's according to conservative Cato Institute, which said that 'non-citizens don’t illegally vote in detectable numbers.' And this is pretty rich, maybe my favorite: It's even according to the hard-right Heritage Foundation, which, according to their own database, reports less than 100 cases of non-citizens illegally voting between 2002 and 2023. The Heritage Foundation, I will remind you, was also the home of the nearly 1000-page Project 2025 plan on their website. Less than 100 cases in a period where literally hundreds of millions of votes were cast. It is just not a thing that happens on any significant level. And why would it? As I said at the top, non-citizens can't vote, that's already a crime. At best, this Republican legislation pushes a solution looking for a problem. But far more alarming, it is intended to sow the seeds of doubt about our country’s elections should Donald Trump lose. We are not going to take our eye off of it, we'll keep talking about it, and neither should you."
