On Saturday, Neil Cavuto aired a clip of President Obama encouraging illegal aliens to vote in the 2016 election.
While amendments to the Constitution protect citizens right to vote, it does not forbid non-citizens from participating in elections, but voting is limited to citizens by state and federal law. Every state in the union has a law prohibiting non-citizens from voting in federal elections and there is a law at the federal level preventing the same.
The interviewer in the video proposes the criminal act of voting without being a citizen by asking Obama if they vote anyway, will they go to jail? The president answers confidently “no.”
