The Tennessee Conservative [By Jason Vaughn] –

A bill that would keep illegal immigrants from voting in Tennessee is slated for the February 16 calendar of the House Elections and Campaign Finance Subcommittee

House Bill 2128 (HB2128), introduced by Representative John Crawford (R-Bristol/Kingsport-District 1), would prevent any person who is not a U.S. citizen from participating in any federal, state, or local election in Tennessee. It would also prohibit local governments in the state from allowing those who are not citizens to vote in any local election. 

The bill also “prescribes various other mechanisms for ensuring the integrity of elections in this state.”

In addition, the bill aims to disqualify those living in Tennessee illegally from participating in court juries.

The bill, if passed by both the Tennessee House and Senate and then signed by Governor Lee will go into effect immediately.
