January 1, Dems Battle SAVE Act: Voting Integrity or Infringement?

Published

on

House Democrats are preparing to challenge the Safeguard American Voter Eligibility (SAVE) Act. The legislation is set to be voted on during the week of July 15th and would require state election officials to request proof of American citizenship before handing voter registration forms to applicants.

Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) considers the SAVE Act critical for protecting the nation’s elections from foreign influence. Under the act, state election officials would have to mandate that voter registration applicants provide proof of American citizenship, such as a passport or birth certificate.

Furthermore, election officials would not be allowed to register applicants to vote in federal elections unless the applicants have handed over proof of American citizenship. House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) has emphasized the importance of the SAVE Act in a policy brief.

He stated, “Noncitizen voting is a threat to election integrity.” He continued: “Congress must pass the SAVE Act to close the loopholes that have allowed noncitizen voting, to enhance election security, to reduce the risk of foreign election interference, and to restore Americans’ confidence in U. S. elections. [Emphasis added]”

Despite its importance, House Democrats are gearing up for a major fight over the issue. House Minority Whip Katherine Clark (D-MA) is urging Democrats to vote against the SAVE Act, putting pressure on those who represent swing districts that voted for former President Donald Trump and face tough reelection bids.

A YouGov poll from July 2022 showed that 65 percent of Americans support requiring proof of citizenship to vote in elections. This includes 48 percent of Democrats, 62 percent of swing voters, and 88 percent of Republicans. In contrast, fewer than 25 percent of Americans oppose requiring proof of citizenship to vote.

    Well, how else will the “Democrats” be able to cheat? They’ve been registering dead people for decades, why not add illegal aliens to the mix? That’s why the border is wide open, after all! Doh!

    It’s already illegal for noncitizens to vote in Federal elections, and little evidence that they do.

    Another attempt to orchestrate hysteria over a subject that doesn’t really exist.
