Republican Texas Rep. Chip Roy introduced a bill into the House of Representatives on Friday, May 5, to crack down on the ability of illegal immigrants to vote in federal elections.
The Protecting American Voters Act, co-sponsored by Reps. Matt Rosendale of Montana and Pete Sessions and Michael Burgess of Texas, provides state officials with the power to obtain any information they need to verify the citizenship of individuals upon their voter registration.

Specifically, the bill compels the Department of Homeland Security to provide states with information about the citizenship status of voter registrants when asked. The Social Security Administration must also provide information for states inquiring about citizens born in the United States.
“American citizens and American citizens only should have the power to determine our republic’s future,” wrote Roy’s press office in a statement. “That’s why Rep. Roy is leading the fight to protect U.S. elections.”
Previously, Homeland Security was allowed to provide such information, but only at its discretion. Social Security, meanwhile, is not permitted to provide any kind of detail for matters of election integrity.
Illegal immigrants are becoming a more common sight at polling stations all over the United States. As of April 2023, over a dozen towns and cities in three states – California, Maryland and Vermont – allow non-citizens to vote in local elections.
At least 12 other states – Arkansas, Colorado, Illinois, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, Ohio, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Washington and Wisconsin – do not have clear impediments to allowing municipalities to pass their own voter qualification laws allowing non-citizens to vote in local elections.
Only seven states – Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Louisiana, North Dakota and Ohio – have specific laws preventing immigrants, legal or otherwise, from voting in state and local elections.
At the federal level, non-citizens are legally prohibited from casting a vote for congressman, senator and president. But many migrants still regularly slip through the cracks every election. One audit of Georgia’s election found that the state’s voter registration rolls from 2022 included some 1,634 non-citizens who were registered to vote. The audit does not state how many of those migrants actually voted.
Roy and others like him are seriously concerned about the effect of uncontrolled illegal immigration on future elections. The administration of President Joe Biden has seen a surge in illegal immigration, with Customs and Border Protection encountering over 2.3 million migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border during the entirety of the 2022 fiscal year, which lasted from October 2021 to September 2022.
By February 2023, Border Patrol has already seen over one million illegals at the border. As many as 700,000 illegals are just waiting for the end of Title 42 before attempting a crossing. This makes Roy’s bill an important one, especially since leading Democrats have made it clear how important illegal immigrants are to their election strategies.
