senate Bill S. 2785

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.

Why does congress waste time on simple things like this? Is it so they can say they passed more bills? If someone interferes in an election than there is a motive to harm the US, what do you think they would want to do if they gained entry to the US? Get back to work and impeach the lunatic!!!!

Any politician who asks for or accepts help from a foreign national should be banned from politics and Lobbying for LIFE.

Of course they should. Protecting our own elections from foreign interference is basic.

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.

This seems like a misguided attempt to make the American people feel that Congress is actually doing something about the Russian hacking of the 2016 Elections. We need sanction and prosecution, not meaningless laws that can't or won't be enforced.

We routinely interfere in other countries elections continually, we don't really get to cry foul now just because they picked the wrong (from your perspective) candidate.

Waste of money. You will never prosecute and it has no teeth. You want to do something meaningful, people need to show id before they vote. We need id for almost everything else we do. That includes buy a phone. Anyone with a phone has id. That is what you do if you actually want to protect the ballot box.

    Of course foreign nationals who interfere or try to interfere with elections should not be allowed to enter the US. At the same time US citizens who cooperate with these actions should be arrested for treason and place on trial.

    Yes, meddling with a country's democratic election IS AN ACT OF POLITICAL TERRORISM. Anybody engaged in such an activity must be viewed as enemy of the people and be banned.

    Foreign people who are known to have interfered in the functioning of our government in anyway, especially our elections, shouldn't be allowed in this country.

    Foreign Nationals are not citizens and “any involvement” in our election process should be grounds for returning them and their children to their home country. No separating the children, no concentration camps, but send them home and make this clearly known upon arrival.

    We let millions of illegals interfere with our elections every 2 years. Let’s put a stop to all interference.

    Yes, But also add a clause that states that any American Citizen who interferes with an election at any level, shall be forced to exit the United States and also relinquish their citizenship. This would include any entity, politicians, religious entities, law enforcement, judiciary and presidents. They must also be forced into imprisonment for one year on the “plastic island” in the Pacific Ocean.

    The government has recourse in place and most of the interference was in other countries i.e. Russia. The people that were involved with Russian that tried to interfere, are going through the court system, but unfortunately, Trump will pardon all of them!
