Democrats Vow ‘Transformative’ Plan to Add 1M Foreign-Born Residents to U.S. Voter Rolls in 4 Years:
Democrats are vowing to implement a “transformative” plan that seeks to add about a million foreign-born residents on green cards to United States voter rolls by securing them naturalized American citizenship.
Former Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) has launched the group “Our Nation’s Future” with support from Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) with the goal of helping one million green card-holders gain naturalized American citizenship within the next four years.
Such a goal would ensure that about a million foreign-born residents are likely added to U.S. voter rolls in key swing states, both Gutierrez and Durbin seemingly acknowledged. Gutierrez, specifically, called the plan “transformative” for upcoming elections.
“In America, the overwhelming growth population is Hispanic, and even a conservative Republican can count,” Durbin said during a news conference. “And if they can count they know in future elections, their fate may be decided by those same Hispanic Americans.”
Already, President Joe Biden has instituted a plan that has surged naturalization rates ahead of the 2022 and 2024 elections.
From October 1, 2020 to September 30, 2021 about 855,000 green card-holders became naturalized American citizens — the highest annual number of legal immigrants getting naturalized in more than a decade. Put another way, more than 2,300 green card-holders were naturalized every day in Fiscal Year 2021. --->READ MORE HERE

Analysis: Biden Boosts Foreign-Born Population Across 2024 Swing States:
President Joe Biden’s policies are resulting in large boosts in foreign-born populations across a number of swing states critical to both political parties in the 2024 presidential election.
Analysis from the Center for Immigration Studies reveals that the foreign-born population has grown to a record-breaking 47 million, with about two million illegal and legal immigrants added to the United States population in Biden’s first 15 months in office.
Much of the growth in the nation’s foreign-born population is settling in swing states, the analysis finds. Florida, for instance, added 390,000 foreign-born residents in the last 15 months, while Pennsylvania added 375,000.
Likewise, Michigan added 247,000 foreign-born residents, Georgia added 152,000, and Arizona added 148,000. The red states of Tennessee and South Carolina each added about 130,000 foreign-born residents, the analysis states.
In swing states, newly registered foreign-born voters often outpace electoral margins, suggesting their significance in swaying state and federal elections. --->READ MORE HERE
