President Donald Trump announced today that he will be placing ICE agents at all polling sites. This will be done to prevent illegal voter fraud. He went on to say:
“We have a tremendous amount of voter fraud. Many people say we need voter ID laws. These are some of the best people. We have too many minorities voting. 3 million illegal voters voted for Hillary in 2016. That’s why she won the popular vote. She didn’t really win it. It was illegals. We can’t be having that. That’s why I will be putting ICE agents at every polling site. We will round them up and send them back over the wall.”
Republicans praised the announcement. They say this is the only way they can win. Republican Sandy Batt said, “Look, we have to inconvenience the minorities. They are becoming very pesky as of late. We need to keep them home through any means necessary, even if it includes the use of federal agents to harass them. We must win at all costs.”
Democrats criticized this announcement, saying it is illegal voter suppression. It is, but Republicans don’t care what the law says about that. Communism has to be defeated. If the law must be broken to do that, so be it.
This is why we are lucky to have Republicans that are willing to break the law to advance their regressive agenda. We don’t need healthcare, fair wages, and a transparent government. We need, guns, bombs, and an oligarchy to tell us what is best for us.
