Biden Opposes Bill to Prove Citizenship for Voting, Claiming It’s ‘Unnecessary’

0:00

President Joe Biden has come out against a bill that would require proof of citizenship to register to vote, claiming it would not secure elections. However, the legislation is designed to prevent foreign nationals from voting in federal elections, which Biden’s failure to enforce America’s southern border has exacerbated.

The bill, known as the Safeguarding American Voter Eligibility (SAVE) Act, would amend the 1993 National Voter Registration Act by requiring would-be voters to provide documentary proof of citizenship. Democrats argue that the legislation is unnecessary because it’s already illegal for foreign nationals to vote or register to vote in federal elections. However, the only thing standing between a non-citizen and voting in a federal election is a small square box that individuals must check, affirming they’re telling the truth about their citizenship status.

The 1993 law requires would-be voters to attest to their citizenship status when registering to vote, but does not require any proof of such citizenship. The SAVE Act would catch any potential aliens registering to vote by requiring documentary proof of citizenship.

Democrats — or, as Billionaire X owner Elon Musk described those who oppose the legislation, “traitors” —, led by House Minority Whip Katherine Clark, are strongly against the legislation, claiming it would prevent Americans from registering to vote with their drivers’ license alone and make a passport the only acceptable standalone form of identification.

However, this argument is flawed, as many states offer driver’s licenses or privilege cards to legally present foreigners and even illegal aliens.

Musk suggested Sunday night that the only reason Democrats would oppose the bill is “because they want to cheat.”

The SAVE Act would solve these issues by requiring individuals to provide documentary proof of citizenship while registering to vote, rather than relying on weak election laws that let thousands of voters slip through the cracks. The bill is up for a vote in the House on Wednesday, and it’s essential that lawmakers prioritize election security and protect the integrity of the voting process.
