Senate passes an Act To Stop people who are not citizens of the United States From Voting In TN

April 5 update: The Senate passed the bill. 

By Jason Vaughn, The Tennessee Conservative, April 4, 2022– A bill that would keep illegal immigrants from voting in the state is slated for the vote of the full Tennessee Senate on April 4th, 2022.

Senate Bill 2245 (SB2245), sponsored by Senator Joey Hensley (R-Hohenwald-District 28), and House Bill 2128 (HB2128), sponsored by Representative John Crawford (R-Bristol/Kingsport-District 1), as introduced, expressly prohibits non-United States citizens from voting in federal, state, or local elections in this state; prohibits local governments from granting non-citizens the right to vote in local elections; prescribes various other mechanisms for ensuring the integrity of elections in this state.

Rod's Comment:  I support this bill.  Nashville is probably the only city in the State where such would even be considered, but this avenue needs to be cut off before any of our progressive council members get the bright idea to propose it. 

The story above as published in The Tennessee Conservative says the bill would keep "illegal immigrants" from voting.  The bill is stronger than that which in my view makes it a better bill.  There are a lot of immigrants in America who are not illegal immigrants but who are not citizens. This bill says, "An individual who is not a citizen of the United States shall not vote in a federal, state, or local election."  Legal immigrants who are not citizens should not vote in our elections either.
