Republicans on the Senate Committee on Rules and Administration have introduced the “Citizen Ballot Protection Act,” aiming to give states the power to verify the American citizenship of those registering to vote by mail.

The legislation seeks to prevent noncitizens, including illegal migrants and representatives of foreign adversaries, from voting in state and federal elections.

Sen. Katie Britt (R-AL) emphasized the sanctity of voting, and expressed concern over certain cities allowing noncitizens to vote in local elections. (Trending: Joe Biden Impeachment Formalized As Republicans Unite)

“Voting in our country is a sacred right that must solely be limited to American citizens,” Britt said.

“To allow States to uphold this principle should be simple commonsense.”

The bill has gained support from various Republican senators and aims to amend the National Voting Rights Act to allow states to require proof of citizenship for mail-in voter registrations.
