    Two Republican senators are taking aim at the Biden administration over
    its support for the Washington, D.C., Council bill giving illegal
    immigrants and non-citizens, which they say would include members of
    the Chinese Communist Party residing in the city, the right to vote in
    local elections.

    Sens. Katie Britt, R-Ala., and Tom Cotton, R-Ark., are urging the
    Senate to take up a joint resolution that would stop the bill in its
    tracks, following the House of Representatives' passage Friday of a
    bipartisan resolution of disapproval on the D.C. measure.

    Prior to the House's passing of H.J. 24, the resolution disapproving of
    the D.C. Council's move, the Biden administration issued a memo stating
    its support for the council's bill and its opposition to the
    resolution, calling it a denial of "true self-governance," and evidence
    that D.C. "deserves statehood."

    "The Biden administration should be ashamed," Britt told Fox News
    Digital. "This is a flagrant failure of the president to uphold his
    oath of office to ‘preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.' Quite simply, he has chosen to pander to the far-left
    wing of the Democratic Party instead of advancing America’s interests."

    "Voting in our country is a sacred right that must solely be limited to American citizens. This is simple common sense," she said.

    The House passed H.J. 24 in a 260-162 vote. Despite Democratic
    leadership urging its members to oppose the resolution, 42 of the
    party's members joined Republicans.


    Why would a president of the US want to allow Chinese Communists and
    illegal aliens to vote?
