Representative Jim Jordan Says 'Only Americans Should Vote in US Elections'

On Friday night, Ohio Republican Rep. Jim Jordan sparked controversy on Twitter by calling

Democrats in Washington, D.C., "stupid" for supporting a decision allowing non-citizens the right to vote.

Jordan said, "Only Americans should vote in American elections," which sparked criticism.

The Local Resident Voting Rights Amendment Act of 2022, which was approved by the District of Columbia Council,

was the subject of the Republican's tweet regarding House Joint Resolution 24, which was approved by the House of Representatives on Thursday.

The motion aims to repeal a law that allowed immigrants to vote locally and was approved by the D.C. Council in October.

In response to Jordan's post, some people disagreed with the lawmaker's viewpoint, while others agreed with it.

"All people residing legally in the area affected by the outcome of the elections should be eligible to vote in state and municipal elections," the user stated.
