The Connecticut Republican Party is criticizing the Democrat-led state House for a proposal this legislative session to consider voting rights for illegal immigrants, saying Democrats in the state in considering such as idea have “lost their minds.”
“It’s official. @CTDems have lost their minds,” the Connecticut GOP tweeted Thursday. “Now they are proposing voting rights for ILLEGAL ALIENS. Elections are for U.S. citizens only. We will fight this tooth and nail to preserve the integrity of our democratic system.”
The stated purpose of the proposal, House Joint Resolution No. 12, is to “allow undocumented immigrants who are residents of the state to vote in municipal and state elections.”
The bill was introduced Jan. 17 2023 and has been referred to the Joint Committee on Government Administration and Elections.
