By The Blaze. Former congressman Doug Ose believes only United States citizens should be allowed to vote, and he’s working to get a proposal on the 2020 ballot that would prevent any noncitizen from voting, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Ose represented California’s 3rd District in the U.S. House from 1999 to 2005, and now he’s seeking to make a two-sentence adjustment to California’s election code. . .
San Francisco approved a measure to allow any parent or legal guardian of voting age to vote in school board elections, regardless of citizenship status, back in 2016. . .
Former Rep.

The Californians who don’t support the radical views of Democrats can simply be eclipsed by non-citizen voters supporting the Democrats.” . . .
Ose, who served the Sacramento area while in Congress, was a relatively early Trump supporter during the 2016, throwing his support behind the then-candidate after Jeb Bush dropped out. (Read more from “Former Congressman Working to Make Sure Noncitizens Can Never Vote in This State” HERE)

The measure was approved by a majority of San Francisco’s eligible voters, but after the first two attempts failed.
“This is no-brainer legislation,” Hillary Ronen, of the city’s Board of Supervisors, told the publication. “Why would we not want our parents invested in the education of their children?”
“As a parent myself and a former member of the SF Board of Education it is critical that the voices of all parents are at the table, particularly those that have historically been denied a voice in the process,” Supervisor Sandra Lee Fewer said.
