Tea Party Patriots Action Applauds Trump & Johnson for Pushing Citizen Only Voting Bill


Atlanta, GA – Today, former President Trump and Speaker Johnson will hold a press conference endorsing citizen only voting legislation – specifically, Rep. Chip Roy’s bill, the “Safeguard American Voter Eligibility Act” (SAVE Act). This bill strengthens current law by requiring proof of citizenship to register to vote in Federal elections. In response, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement:

“Tea Party Patriots Action strongly supports the SAVE Act. We thank Congressman Roy for introducing it, and we are thrilled former President Trump and Speaker Johnson are rallying around it.

“Americans understand the importance of ensuring that only citizens vote in elections for the American President, Senators, and Representatives.

“In January of this year, we commissioned John McLaughlin’s company to conduct an election integrity poll. We learned that 87% of Americans agree that ‘proof of U.S. citizenship should be required to register to vote in American elections,’ and that 79% agree that ‘foreigners should be prohibited from interfering, including voting, in U.S. elections.’ Even though President Biden is deliberately flooding our country with illegal aliens, overwhelming majorities of Republicans, Democrats, and Independents want to protect our elections from foreign interference. That is what makes the SAVE Act so important. 

“We look forward to working with President Trump and Speaker Johnson to promote the SAVE Act and the larger cause of strengthening election integrity.”

Strengthening election integrity is at the heart of TPPA’s mission. Ahead of the 2022 midterms, TPPA recruited and trained over 20,000 poll watchers and poll workers. TPPA is redoubling those efforts for the 2024 election, and its goal is to exceed what it did in 2022.
