Security by House is to be overhauled, with 2024 rolling soon.


Security by House is to be overhauled, with 2024 rolling soon.

The House Republicans are putting efforts towards making American election security more robust, as it is just a few weeks before the elections of 2024 start. The Committee on House Administration will meet on Thursday to initiate seven bills about the state, federal, and local elections. 

One of the bills consists of the measures that enable the state to require proof of citizenship when entering to boil through the mail. It mandates the Department of Homeland Security and Social Security Administration to relay information to states to assist them in verifying the citizenship of the people who are starting to vote and a bill for reading a Washington, D.C. law enabling non-citizens to vote in the local elections and others. 

Steil stated that when they had a joint hearing with Oversight and they explained what D.C. law is, even the Democrats agreed with them. Allowing the non-citizens to vote was referred to as “ridiculous,” as it is. 

The Democrats have stated their opposition to the GOP election security efforts. They have accused the Republicans of trying to make visiting further tricky. However, Steil says he believed the D.C. measure must be a bipartisan push. 

Steil states another bill that forbids foreign nationals from making any political constitutions in the elections, not on ballot initiatives and also on public referendums, must be a “no-brainer” for the Democrats to support. 

Steil stated that they are strengthening the integrity of the elections by not allowing any foreign interventions. 

The committee meeting on Thursday will be a month and a half before the Jan. Iowa caucus, when the Republican voters will partake in the first content of the presidential election for 2024. The Democrats are carrying out their first primary in early February in South Carolina. 

Steil introduced the bills in July as a part of a larger package, which is referred to as the American Confidence in Elections Act. Fox News Digital told him that his committee would advance as individual bills for riveting the last part of the package a higher chance of passing- and for getting the Democrats on the record. However, he did not directly reply on whether he believed that election insecurity or voter fraud had a significant role in the elections conducted in 2020 and 2022.
