23M Illegals: 2024 Election’s New Power?

The American Immigration Council (AIC) has raised concerns about the potential involvement of millions of undocumented immigrants in the upcoming 2024 election.

According to an analysis by AIC, more than 23 million immigrants are preparing to participate in the election, with many of them voting for the first time since their arrival in the United States. The impact of this on the election’s outcome remains uncertain.

The analysis points out that as more immigrants become eligible to vote through naturalization, their political influence continues to grow. It is projected that the number of immigrant voters will increase in the coming decade, and in certain states, foreign-born voters already have the potential to sway election results.

In the 2024 election, foreign-born eligible voters are expected to make up approximately one-tenth of all eligible voters. This means that 10 percent of the voting population will consist of individuals who are not native-born citizens.

The significance of this demographic becomes particularly pronounced in swing states, where this 10 percent could play a decisive role in determining the election’s outcome.

AIC’s report underscores the crucial role of foreign-born voters in American elections, given that presidential races, especially in swing states, are often decided by narrow margins. It points to the close results in several swing states during the 2020 election.

The analysis also reveals that foreign-born voters tend to favor Democratic presidential candidates over Republican candidates. This demographic shift in the country’s population could present a challenge for conservatives in the 2024 election.

In the 2016 election, even though Donald Trump emerged as the winner, foreign-born voters overwhelmingly supported Hillary Clinton, with 64 percent voting for her and only 31 percent for Trump, according to exit polls. In contrast, Trump won the native-born American voter demographic by 49 percent compared to Clinton’s 45 percent.

Rep. Mike Johnson (R-La.) has expressed concerns that President Biden may seek to allow as many undocumented migrants as possible to vote in the 2024 election to boost his chances of reelection, given that native-born Americans are less likely to vote for him.

The issue of non-citizens voting has arisen in some states, with California considering allowing non-citizens to vote in municipal elections. Democrats in various parts of the country have advocated for similar changes while the debate over immigration policy continues.

It is evident that the ongoing flow of undocumented immigration is reshaping the electorate, with potential consequences for future elections. Some states have explicitly prohibited non-citizen voting, while others grapple with the issue.

In conclusion, the AIC’s analysis highlights the evolving dynamics of the American electorate, with immigration and voting rights as key areas of concern and debate.
