Scalise Claims Biden More Worried About Fixing the Non-Issue of Voter Id Than Fixing the Very Real Problem of Illegal Immigration

The United States of America has long been a beacon of hope for people around the world. We are a land with freedoms many cannot fathom and with riches beyond the wildest dreams of many. We are also a nation that continuously trips ourselves up and lets personal agendas become the biggest issues we preach about while consistently overlooking the biggest problems facing us as a nation.

President Biden has provided great examples of this lately as he looks to find ways to force the Build Back Better (BBB) bill down American’s throats (despite the Senate blocking it), as well as his personal mission to get the Freedom to Vote Act pushed through. His actions on these two issues (and many others) have drawn intense criticism and yet, he keeps pushing forward like this is the most amazing idea ever.

House Minority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) appeared on Fox News Channel’s “America Reports” earlier this week to discuss these failures and where President Biden would be best served to concentrate his efforts. “In the midst of all these crises, inflation, high gas prices, a border crisis, go down the list that families are facing, Joe Biden’s top priority is getting rid of picture ID and mandating same-day voter registration in every state in America, which opens the door, by everybody’s account, to massive voter fraud. Why would he want to do that? Why is that his top priority? His top priority should be helping families who are struggling because of the failures of the Biden presidency.”

Scalise capitalized on these points by following up that eliminating voter ID is “not something the voters are crying for. It’s just some of the party bosses amongst the Democrats in Washington. Most people don’t want this. They want Washington focused on their problems, like inflation, like high gas prices that Joe Biden created.” He’s right, too. The people want what they were promised, and with the 2022 midterm elections slowly getting ramped up, the time for the Democrats is now.

This is an opportunity that the party cannot afford to miss, yet for conservatives everywhere, this is a perfect storm. The Democrats, and President Biden especially, are messing up at nearly every given point. As the mistakes pile up, Americans everywhere are turning against them in record numbers. With moderate independents abandoning them, and multiple Democrats jumping the party ship, it won’t be long until only the true party line riders are left.

As the country is being overrun by illegal immigrants and our border is consistently under fire, people have to wonder when the President will finally stand up and proclaim that he has had enough. Border patrol is grossly understaffed, underfunded, and unprepared for this influx. This has happened because of horrible administrative policies, budget cuts, and an overwhelming number of illegals coming here as Democrats promise to give them even more.

Given how lucrative being here illegally is, many Americans joke about giving up their citizenship so they can get the perks of being an alien in this great land. Yet that joke isn’t too far off from the truth. As much as Americans are penalized for doing the right thing, how horrible the medical system treats us, and how many of our rights are being handed to the aliens as we suffer, it only makes sense. Biden refuses to fix the illegal immigration issue, and the old saying of ‘If you can’t beat em, join em’ comes to mind. After all, we might just get a better shake than we are now.
