U.S. House Democrats overwhelmingly voted to support noncitizens voting in U.S. elections.

The House voted Thursday on a bill filed by U.S. Rep. August Pfluger, R-Texas, to block noncitizens from voting in District of Columbia local elections.

The bill would repeal a 2022 District of Columbia law allowing noncitizens to vote in local elections and specifically prohibit noncitizens from voting in the district’s elections.

It passed by a vote of 262-143, with 52 Democrats joining 210 Republicans supporting it.
