House Republicans’ Position is Simple: Only Americans Should Vote in American Elections

WASHINGTON — At the weekly House Republican Leadership press conference this morning, Speaker of the House Mike Johnson emphasized the need for the swift passage of the Safeguard American Voter Eligibility (SAVE) Act, which aims to prevent noncitizens from voting in federal elections.

Speaker Johnson also addressed the House’s efforts to overturn the Biden Administration’s recent Title IX revisions and criticized Congressional Democrats for allegedly misleading the public about President Biden’s mental and physical health.

“Many of the Democrats want illegals to participate in our federal elections, they want them to vote. There’s no other conclusion that you can draw. When the White House announced they would veto the bill, they effectively handed our elections over to all of these illegal aliens that have come here,” Speaker Johnson asserted.

The SAVE Act

Johnson argued that the White House’s opposition to the SAVE Act is unfounded. “They claim it’s going to make it harder to vote, but they know that is not true. Many of the Democrats want all of these illegals to participate in our federal elections, they want them to vote. There’s no other conclusion that you can draw. When the White House announced they would veto the bill, they effectively handed our elections over to all of these illegal aliens that have come here,” he said.

Johnson stressed the importance of safeguarding federal elections from potential fraud. “It’s a serious problem and we cannot allow a federal election to be jeopardized by people who can run into the local welfare office, sign up for taxpayer benefits, and check a box that says I’m a citizen and I want to vote. This is common sense legislation,” he added. He praised Congressman Chip Roy and others for their work on the bill and urged voters to question Democrats who oppose it.

Title IX Concerns

Johnson also criticized the Biden Administration’s changes to Title IX, emphasizing the Republican stance on protecting women’s sports. “Unlike Democrats, Republicans know what a woman is and we know that women are worth protecting. The Republican Party is pro-women. More than two-thirds of Americans think that only women should be allowed to compete in women’s sports. This used to be common sense until the Biden administration tried to upend that,” he stated.

Johnson expressed confidence that the House would pass measures to revert the Title IX changes and challenged Senate Democrats to take action. “We’ll send it to the Senate and we will dare Chuck Schumer and the Democrats over there not to take up and pass the SAVE Act and not to take up the CRA on Title IX,” he said.

Concerns Over President Biden’s Condition

Johnson concluded by accusing Congressional Democrats of covering up concerns about President Biden’s health. “We could give you example after example, it’s all on tape. It’s all on record. Democrats, our colleagues, for three and a half years have been covering up this glaring problem. The staff in the White House has been covering it up and so have the Democrats in Congress,” Johnson claimed.

He cited recent statements by Representatives Dan Goldman and Eric Swalwell as examples of Democrats allegedly misrepresenting the President’s condition. “They’ve misled the American people, and this is dangerous,” Johnson warned.
