The Texas senator rallied his GOP colleagues around the issue on an invitation-only call heard by The Associated Press.

On an invitation-only call last week, Sen. Ted Cruz huddled with Republican state lawmakers to call them to battle on the issue of voting rights.

Democrats are trying to expand voting rights to “illegal aliens” and “child molesters,” he claimed, and Republicans must do all they can to stop them. If they push through far-reaching election legislation now before the Senate, the GOP won’t win elections again for generations, he said.

Asked if there was room to compromise, Cruz was blunt: “No.”

Why are Republicans so desperate to limit voting rights? Voting fraud has been thoroughly proven to be nearly nonexistent; therefore, one can only assume they don't want certain groups of voters voting for Democrats. I predict that this will not end well for Republicans. We must not allow a resurgence of Jim Crow voter suppression. What do you think?

The only individuals who should be allowed to vote in US elections, should be limited to only actual US born citizens. If someone comes to this country "legally," takes the citizenship test and is sworn in as a citizen, he or she should also be allowed to vote. "Illegal" migrants have committed a crime by coming through illegally and thus should not be allowed to vote in elections.
It doesn't take an Einstein to produce a birth certificate or citizenship papers, to obtain proper state or federal identification. This Democrat penchant of claiming that minorities shouldn't have to produce identification, boils down to the "racism of low expectations." The white Democrats think minorities, especially blacks, are too dumb to know how to obtain proper identification.
While I am pro-Republican, my significant other is pro-Democrat and despite our political differences, on this one, we agree.....only bona fide citizens should be allowed to vote.....once per election cycle.

The face you make and the desperation you resort to when you know, 1) Your party has nothing in the way of new policy initiatives, 2) You can see the writing on the wall that most of the country is fed up with Point #1 and is about to kick your party to the curb. So rather than address policy issues and renounce failed stand by's like supply side and trickle down economic policies (tax cuts for corporations and the wealthy), you retreat to old tactics of cultural wedge issues, voter suppression, gerrymandering, and division pimping.

From the link:

Perkins answered the question by recalling how voting laws were made stricter in his native Louisiana after a close 1996 Senate race won by Democrats. He noted that the state now votes solidly Republican.
“When you have free, fair elections, you’re going to have outcomes that are positive,” Perkins said before urging viewers to push state lawmakers to “restore election integrity.”
Stronger voting regulations have long been a conservative goal, driven by old — and some say outdated — conventional wisdom that Republicans thrive in elections with lower turnout, and Democrats in ones with more voters. That has translated to GOP efforts to tighten voter identification laws and require more frequent voter roll purges. Both efforts tend to disproportionally exclude Black and Latino voters, groups that lean Democratic.

When Dems can't cheat, they lose more often.

Why wasn't voter ID a problem in the 2020 election?

Really? Why wasn't that proven in all the recounts and court cases?

Republicans are engaged in extreme voter suppression that has NOTHING to do with voter ID - such as various actions to limit access to the polls. Limiting access to the polls has NOTHING to do with voter ID.

Because it will disproportionately affect democrat voters. As it is designed to do. That is literally the only reason the GOP wants it.

Of course, on this issue, one party is on the correct side of democracy and ethics, regardless of why. That's the democrats.

“Why are Republicans so desperate to limit voting rights?”

Because they know that when voter turnout is high, Republican candidates tend to lose elections.

It is an article of religious faith among Republicans that when a Republican loses an election, it’s the consequence of the myth of voter ‘fraud.’

In order for Republicans to reestablish or maintain their minority rule, they need to undermine voting rights, seek to suppress votes, and disenfranchise citizens they perceive to be likely Democratic voters.

Of course it does. Because Dem voters are too stupid to get photo ID. Or too dead.
