This legislation would hold states accountable for allowing the practice of non-citizen voting and works to stop the disenfranchisement of American voters.

January 6, 2022

The Honorable Marco Rubio
Senator from Florida
284 Russell Senate Office Building
Washington, DC 20510

Cc: Senator Steve Daines (MT), Senator Thom Tillis (NC), Senator John Kennedy (LA), Senator Rick Scott
(FL), Senator James Lankford (OK)

Dear Senator Rubio,

On behalf of the 2.3 million members of AMAC – Association of Mature American Citizens, including
nearly 180,000 residing in the state of Florida, I write to offer our support for S. 3403, the Protecting Our
Democracy by Preventing Foreign Citizens from Voting Act.

AMAC and its members have been highly engaged in election integrity issues for over a year and were
instrumental in getting election reform legislation passed in states throughout the country. Protecting
and securing our precious right to vote remains a high priority among AMAC members.

It is hard to believe that we need legislation like S. 3403 but given the current times in which we live,
AMAC is grateful for your diligence to safeguard American elections. Your bill would rightly withhold
federal funds from any state or local government that allows foreign citizens to vote in any Federal,
State, or local election. Your proposal would also require that the state or local governments must
certify that they do not allow foreign citizens to vote as a means to both receive federal funding and
ensure compliance with the legislation.

Thank you, Senator Rubio, and your cosponsors, for introducing legislation that works to stop the
disenfranchisement of American voters and holds states accountable for allowing the practice of non-citizen voting. AMAC appreciates the efforts of you and your colleagues to protect the hallmark of our
democracy and is pleased to offer our organization’s full support for S. 3403, the Protecting Our
Democracy by Preventing Foreign Citizens from Voting Act.

Sincerely,

Bob Carlstrom

President, AMAC Action

I was taught in grade school, middle school, high school and college that our Constitution and the additional amendments guarantee the right to vote ONLY to natural born citizens, naturalized citizens, and citizens of the United States working worldwide. NOT to people already breaking our laws by slipping over the borders without permission or their children unless those children were born on American soil (which includes military bases and Embassies). It is ludicrous that we are not ENFORCING this already but if it takes new laws to reinforce what is already there, then that is what we must do. We should not be handing out voting rights like toys in a McDonald’s kid’s meal. Ask any naturalized citizen and they will tell you it is much more meaningful to do it the right way. We need Voter ID Cards (I have one and I was born here!) and verification of citizenship in order to vote. We need to emphasize that voting is a responsibility as much as it is a “perk” of being a citizen. Otherwise, we are no longer a nation of laws.

I find it very telling that for Trump’s entire presidential term the Democrats could not stop yelling about how foreign interference from Russia in our elections would destroy the country and our democracy. Now those same Democrats welcome foreign citizens to be included in our election process. Proof positive they are self serving hypocrites

Non- citizens should not be allowed to vote in American elections. Voting is a right of the citizens of the United States.

Indeed. This is Sleep Joe’s attempt to have illegal aliens vote for him in 11/24. Do not permit illegals from votings. American citizens only!

Absolutely agree with stopping non citizens being allowed to vote, also they should not be given a driver’s license either. They are breaking our laws.

Bravo to Amac for recognizing the corruption of our voting system by allowing illegal immigrants and other illegals to vote. The right to vote is a right which only American citizens have earned and illegals should not under any circumstances be allowed to do so. Thank you for standing up for the rights of legitimate voters and helping our elections to reflect the will of honest voters.

We believe that only legal American citizens should be the ones to vote in elections in the United States of America. A lot of people have died so that we have the right to vote our convictions on matters or persons to hold an office in our government, be it State or Federal office. Or governing laws. Illegal persons should only be allowed to have a driver’s license , Not Social Security or voting privileges..

this concept of non citizen’s being permitted to vote in America’s elections is an outgrowth of “Era of NO Common Sense” we now live in. It’s Damn stupid.

Can anyone imagine a US citizen trying to vote in China or Italy?
They would be arrested or deported for such an act! Legal
Americans are the only ones who should be able to vote in American elections!

There is so much corruption in every level of government, that it is going to take years again to just get to a tolerable state. In order for anything to be made truthful, it must start with a complete overhaul of the voting system now.

You need to correct the title wording…
“Protecting Our Democracy…” to
“Protecting Our REPUBLIC by Preventing Foreign Citizens from Voting Act.”

Calling our country a “democracy” is just plain Ignorant. Ask Ben Franklin! 😉

It’s past the time for us to go on the offense. We shouldn’t be forced to exert most of our energy chasing the communist fires. Sharing the information about this Bill is imperative! Contacting Congress showing full support is necessary!

Sure would like to hear CNN discuss this problem instead of the non-stop Jan 6 obsession. But, alas, I know that will not happen so I will do what ? Read Smithsonian Magazine or improve my golf swing, or call relatives or take up woodworking or work overtime, or , or, or …….

This type of legislation is LONG overdue. It’s as much a concern as term limits. Now if we can get the job done it might make American future a little less cloudy. God Bless America????????????????

Given that foreign citizens are already prohibited from voting in federal and state races, wouldn’t a better title for this ‘do nothing’ bill be: “Protecting Our Democracy by Preventing Foreign Citizens from Voting in local New York City races Act” ?

Since Washington Democratic Party wants to do away with the Electoral College, The Country would be better represented by counties instead of states for all elections.
