The rise of the border
The growth on the border is blamed by some on the insurance policies of the Biden administration. Nonetheless, the promulgated message that we now have an open border is definitely unfold broadly by Republicans – not the Biden administration.
Even when we don’t at the moment have an open border, this false narrative might properly be one of many foremost drivers of the present state of affairs on the border.

Election fraud claims
shouldn’t be the true concern
In 2016, Trump claimed that tens of millions of undocumented migrants had voted, giving the favored vote to Hillary Clinton. He appointed a particular group to analyze. It was dissolved and located no proof to help the allegations of widespread electoral fraud. As a result of there was no electoral fraud.
Contemplate all forms of fraudulent exercise that makes cash: cash laundering, prostitution, playing, pornography, bank card fraud. There isn’t a cash to vote illegally. The emotional banner of “voter fraud” is a fastidiously crafted declare to allow voter suppression. Secretaries of state throughout the nation have reported that the 2020 elections had been the most secure ever. Republicans aren’t apprehensive about voter fraud; they’re afraid of dropping.
A whole bunch of invoices making it harder to vote and register to vote is occurring throughout the nation. Voters of all stripes ought to elevate their voices to demand a good, inclusive and sensible vote. Excessive voter turnout is an effective factor.

Do GOP and the Russians
search to steal the elections?
The media publicly inform us Trump and his closest allies embraced Russia’s disinformation marketing campaign towards Biden, met with Kremlin-related figures who had been a part of the hassle, and promoted their conspiracy theories.
I wakened this morning occupied with this report. I believed to myself, “Might it’s that the Republicans and the Russians have labored collectively to undermine our presidential election by attempting to personally and baselessly assault Joe Biden”?
If this report is true, they had been actually companions. They conspired and collaborated to steal our election by way of lies and deception. Are there not penalties for this type of fraud?

Payments would create pathways
for questionable voting challenges
Whereas not with the ability to make voting by folks of shade unlawful, many provisions Senate Invoice 7 and Home invoice 6 is tantamount to harvesting Republican votes by way of intimidation, obstruction, interference, restriction and felony sanction within the hope of securing white vote majorities. The payments would keep a majority of white votes by rationing voting rights to perpetuate the present caste system.
SB 7 and HB 6 would set up within the electoral regulation a foundation and a multiplicity of avenues for reputable or different challenges, even elections performed with the best integrity. The payments would lay the groundwork for future authorized challenges to such elections.
