We have been told, repeatedly, that requirements for identification cards to vote is "racist."

Never mind the well-established fact that there are, literally, dozens of everyday events in our lives that demand that we have, and present, identification.
Those daily events include: travel (driver's license if you drive; photo identification to board a plane; a passport to travel internationally); conduct financial business, requirements to provide photo ID and, possibly, SSN, to open bank and other financial services accounts;
purchase utility services, including electric service, natural gas services, water, sewer, and trash services; obtaining a home telephone line or buying a cell phone and cell phone service; to make purchases (guns, automobiles, mopeds).

Perhaps George H.W. Bush was the most consequential one-term President in American history. Or, perhaps, it was James Polk - elected this day in 1844. Polk made America a continental power, adding more territory to the United States than any other president #ManifestDestiny

Dear #MAGA #Desis & other assorted non-white ppl who support Republicans because of anti-blackness or lower taxes or the feeling of proximity to power, observe this pattern of escalating & widening targeting in #immigration policy & #deportation:
1. Criminal illegal aliens "bad hombres"
2. All undocumented immigrants
3. End TPS "Temporary Protected Status"
4. End family preference in green cards "chain migration"
5. Reduce/eliminate residency lottery
6. Review citizenship applications for fraud & revoke citizenship &
deport ppl who've been here for decades
7. End birthright citizenship for children of undocumented migrants
8. Muslim ban
9. Revoke residency visa for people who have used certain public welfare benefits

I've probably forgotten some other measures, and no doubt there are more
