On Monday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said the election security laws being passed in various states are “the worst challenge to our democracy since the Civil War.”
Psaki made the claim after a reporter asked her what President Biden will do to resist the efforts by Republicans to ensure more secure elections.
“He’ll lay out the moral case for why denying the right to vote is a form of suppression and a form of silencing and how he will use, he will redouble his commitment to using every tool at his disposal to continue to fight to protect the fundamental rights of Americans to vote against the onslaught of voter suppression laws,” Psaki said.
Psaki added, “He’ll also decry efforts to strip the right to vote as authoritarian and anti-American and stand up against the notion that politicians should be allowed to choose their voters or to subvert our system by replacing independent election authorities with partisan ones.
“And he will highlight the work of the administration against this, the necessity of passing the For The People Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act and how we need to work together with civil rights organizations to build as broad a turnout and voter education system to overcome the worst challenge to our democracy since the Civil War,” Psaki said.

The election security laws have been ruled by the Supreme Court to “not result in minorities having unequal access to the political process,” creating a clear distinction between the laws passed by Republicans to ensure more secure elections and the Jim Crow laws passed by Democrats with the goal of suppressing the ability of minorities to vote.
Psaki’s comments come after Vice President Kamala Harris made a demeaning comment towards rural Americans in an argument against voter ID laws, claiming it was “almost impossible” for rural Americans to make photocopies of their IDs.
