New Voting Law PASSED!

Ballot Box

(DailyEmailNews.com) – In an outstanding effort to get America back on the right track, House Republicans, joined by a few Democrats, passed a bill requiring U.S. citizenship proof to vote.

Known as the Safeguard American Voter Eligibility (SAVE) Act, the bill saw 216 Republicans and five Democrats in favor against 198 Democrats who opposed it. However, the bill faces slim chances in the Democratic-majority Senate.

The SAVE Act mandates that voters present a valid photo ID and a document like a birth certificate as proof of citizenship.

This move stems from Republican concerns about illegals voting in national elections after the Biden administration allowed millions into the country.

House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) emphasized, “Over the past four years, Joe Biden has welcomed millions upon millions of illegals into the country knowing that noncitizens only have to check a box to vote in a federal election.”

“We have long known this was an intentional effort to turn them into voters, and now the American people know where every member of Congress stands on this critically important issue,” he added.

Johnson’s office released a report in June advocating for the SAVE Act, citing a 2014 study that suggested noncitizens had voted in the 2008 and 2010 elections.

The report also highlighted a loophole in the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 and criticized the Biden administration for not enforcing immigration laws, as these oversights could allow noncitizens to vote.

The bill has garnered attention amid record-high border crossings and high-profile crimes by illegals, elevating immigration as a key issue among voters.

Joe Biden, who polls poorly on immigration, faces criticism compared to former President Donald Trump, who supported the SAVE Act and called on Republicans to pass it.

“And they should pass the SAVE ACT immediately to stop illegals from voting in our elections. Republicans MUST GET TOUGH about stopping weaponization and cheating!” Trump stated on Truth Social.

Ahead of the vote, Democratic leaders in the House urged members to reject the SAVE Act, denouncing it as burdensome and potentially disenfranchising for many Americans.

The White House also opposed the bill, stating, “This bill would do nothing to safeguard our elections, but it would make it much harder for all eligible Americans to register to vote and increase the risk that eligible voters are purged from voter rolls.”
