Trump Calls for Voter ID: 'Only American Citizens Should Vote in American Elections'

President Donald Trump has made it clear that immigration will be a major campaign issue for him, in both the midterm elections and in his own re-election bid, and that was evident at the president’s rally in Florida on Tuesday.

“Republicans want strong borders and no crime. Democrats want open borders, which equals massive crime,” he said. “And on top of that, the Democrats…they’ve launched outrageous attacks on our incredible law enforcement officers and on ICE and our Border Patrol — can you believe it? People that keep us safe.”

Trump said Democrats, in their pursuit of open borders, also want to let illegal immigrants vote. “It’s crazy,” he said. […]

“We believe that only American citizens should vote in American elections. Which is why the time has come for voter ID, like everything else. Voter ID. You know, if you go out and you want to buy groceries, you need a picture on a card. You need ID. You go out and you want to buy anything, you need ID, and you need your picture. In this country, the only time you don’t need it, in many cases, is when you want to vote for a president, when you want to vote for a senator, when you want to vote for a governor or a congressman. It’s crazy. It’s crazy. But we’re turning it around,” Trump promised.

He received a standing ovation when he called for voter ID. …

Should end dual citizenship itself. Pick a country and be loyal.

Connecting illegal immigration and voting. its a good issue, which shows Trump’s strong political instincts.

Let the Dems take a public stand in opposition.

OOOOPS. personally I believe we should end dual citizenship Senators and Congressmen, and dual citizen politicians of any kind, BUT I’m kinda’ fond of Ted Cruz and he would be ousted, and probably lots more who have good heads on their shoulders. What to do????

This should not even have to be said.

We are 30 years and 30 million people into a bipartisan policy of non-enforcement of laws and borders with the purpose of forever changing the United States of America.
We have a very short window to reverse the flood of fraudulently documented foreigners before our elected give our country to them.

Bush League Republicans MUST become extinct before the Republic does.

OOOOPS again. Ending dual citizenship in voting would be a problem for me, this “baby” would be flung out with the bathwater, and I’m a true blue conservative. You could not renounce your British citizenship prior to 1958, so I’m a dual national whether I like it or not, even tho’ I’ve been here since age 11.

I’d be flung out with the bathwater, too.

I hate to rain on everyone’s parade, but consider the Real ID Act of 2005. The initial compliance deadline was 2008. As the mandatory compliance date approached...many states weren’t in compliance. An extension was granted...and then another one...and then another one. The most recent extension bumped compliance out to 2020. At this point, a little over half the states have complied. The ones that haven’t are your typical democrat bastions of resistance...some even passing resolutions opposing compliance.

As much as I’d like to see a Voting ID...good luck getting it to go nationwide.

Should, but can't. No way to control who some other country accepts as their citizen.
