It appears that Democrats are circling the wagons at the Capitol to make sure that there is no effective measure in place to require voters in federal elections to prove that they are citizens of the United States.

The push by House Democrats follows skyrocketing numbers of illegal border crossings. U.S. Customs and Border Protection reported a record-breaking number of encounters with illegal aliens along the southern border during FY 2023, with significant increases clocked each year under the Biden administration, as previously reported by The Dallas Express.

Here’s some of what Fox News reported about the Democrats’ seeming efforts to thwart election security:

Republicans are pushing the passage of the Safeguard American Voter Eligibility Act, otherwise known as the SAVE Act, which would amend the National Voter Registration Act, and require states to obtain proof of citizenship from voters for federal elections, as well as purge noncitizens from voter rolls.

Democratic leadership is urging its House members to vote against the bill in the lead-up to the vote, saying it would place “an extreme burden [on] countless Americans” in order to vote.

“As we’ve seen a number of times this Congress, House Republicans continue to irresponsibly call into question the credibility of our elections. Despite numerous recounts, challenges in court, and deep-dives by conservative think-tanks, there has been zero evidence of the widespread fraud that this bill purports to target. It is already illegal under current law for noncitizens to register to vote or to vote in federal elections,” the office of House Minority Whip Katherine Clark, D-Mass., wrote in a “whip question,” Axios first reported. The whip vote rounds up this coming weeks’ votes and outlines guidance regarding how Democratic House members should vote.
