senate Bill S. 1328

Should Foreign Nationals Who Interfered or Seek to Interfere With Elections be Prohibited From Entering the U.S.?

Argument in favor

This commonsense, bipartisan bill would deter foreign nationals from improperly interfering in American elections by making them ineligible for admission to the U.S. if they meddle.

Yes, they should be banned and charged with a crime. Anyone person knowingly involved with foreign agents who plan to ‘help’ a candidate get elected should also be charged with a crime and severely punished. This gets to the very heart of our democratic republic’s ability to be, well, Democratic. I am very concerned about the wanton in-your-face disregard of senior politicians, political appointees, and even congressional staffers to honor their oath’s to protect our country and to honor one of the more sacred founding principles of this country’s Constitution. We constantly see this being disregarded the administration, the trump’s supporters, and the trump’s enablers - as they all feel they are too entitled to be bound by such a ‘quaint’ principal of honoring their primary duties of office, to honor and protect our country and our Constitution.

Anyone who can be tied to interference in any US election should have all access barred permanently from this country. Those found to interfere with elections who are citizens should have their right to vote removed and all access to government agencies, officials, lobbyists or positions denied permanently and their names placed on cyber security lists.

Argument opposed

Sanctioning individuals who meddle in U.S. elections and preventing them from entering the country is only a weak deterrent given that most will never even attempt to come here.

They should be allowed to get as far as setting foot on U.S. soil, met IMMEDIATELY by law enforcement, taken into custody, held without bail, charged, and upon conviction receive a life sentence in solitary confinement in a maximum security U.S. prison.

We deserve a bill with some actual teeth to it to protect our elections.

    Foriegn Nationals who interfere in our elections should not be allowed to enter the US, with the exception of testifying to their crimes in a court or an impeachment hearing. Also, the new postmaster (aka: mega donor) general that tRump appointed on Friday just reassigned 23 postal executives! He also informed states that they will need to pay 55-cent postage to mail ballots to voters (rather than 20-cents the bulk rate). This after he cut overtime, which increased the time mail needs to reach its destination. THIS IS INTERFERENCE IN OUR ELECTIONS!!!

    Foreign nationals engaging in US elections should be deported, and those interfering in any way should be criminally charged and fined then deported! Anyone engaging in financial transactions (both sender & receiver) should also be punished. And US citizens colluding with them should be sentenced to prison as traitors.

    👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 The Deter act 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 I’m in strong agreement with and recommend the passage of this commonsense, bipartisan bill (DeterAct) which would deter foreign nationals from improperly interfering in American elections by making them ineligible for admission to the U.S. if they meddle.

    Yes, and those who are already here should also be arrested and tried. We need to take real election security very seriously. I doubt most of those Russians who were accused from 2016 will ever come to this country, but we should still be prepared if/when they do. And if anybody from other countries tries to interfere they should also be pursued. Any Americans who conspire or collude with foreign interests to interfere in our election should not be free of consequences.

    Not sure that “entering” the US is the problem. Most people who are planning to be a detriment to our security, both financial systems & election concerns do not have to BE in the country they are hacking. However, I agree with not letting them in unless they are in handcuffs and to testify

    You can start with all of the governors and organizations that mass mailed unsolicited ballots.

    How about American politicians who work WITH foreign nationals who interfere in our elections? My legislators are silent on this topic. They are complicit.

    Foreign nationals interfering or attempting to interfere with our elections should never be permitted to enter our country. The main argument against such legislation seems to be that it’s not really an effective or practical solution and it’s just smoke and mirrors. I actually agree that it wouldn’t be much of a practical deterrent. Nevertheless, I think this legislative action should be taken even if it mainly symbolic. I assume that such actions are already the subject of federal criminal laws and investigations.

    We MUST protect our nation from foreign interference in our elections. I am also unhappy that the proposed amendment mentioned in the linked article didn’t make it into the Intelligence committee’s bill. Is Congress going to protect us? https://www.google.com/amp/s/fox2now.com/news/national/senate-strips-provision-from-intelligence-bill-requiring-campaigns-to-report-foreign-election-help/amp/

    Of course! This just makes sense, so I'm sure Republicans won't vote for it! They know those hostile foreign powers interfering in our elections favor them, and they don't care if they flout the will of the American people and become friendly with hostile foreign powers, so long as these keep them in power by their cheating and hostile acts!
