Biden sê vir Georgië om 'op te knap' om sake te verloor weens nuwe verkiesingswet

“Dit is gerusstellend om te sien dat bedrywighede en ondernemings sonder winsbejag praat oor hoe hierdie nuwe Jim Crow-wette net antiteties is teenoor wie ons is.,” die president het verslaggewers Dinsdag gereed gemaak.

There’s another side to it too. When they in fact move out of Georgia, people who need help most, people who are making hourly wages, sometimes get hurt the most,” Biden gesê.

He said he supports however businesses decide to protest the law. “I think it’s a very tough decision for a corporation to make or group to make, I respect them when they make that judgment, I support whatever judgment they make. The best way to deal with this is for Georgia and other states to smarten up. Stop dit, stop it,” hy het gesê.


Verlede week, Major League Baseball announced it would pull its All-Star Game out of Atlanta, and before that Biden said he would “sterk steun” players pushing to move the game.

I think today’s professional athletes are acting incredibly responsibly. I would strongly support them doing that,” Biden told ESPN last week. “People look to them. They’re leaders. The very people who are victimized the most are the leaders in these various sports.

Other corporations issued statements condemning the new legislation, including Coca-Cola, J.P. Morgan and Delta.

Georgia enacted sweeping election reform last week that required voter ID for absentee voting rather than relying on signature matching for verification, limited ballot drop boxes to one per county or one per 100,000 kiesers, expanded early voting days, and standardized early voting hours to a minimum of 9 am. aan 5 nm. and a maximum of 7 am. aan 7 nm. The legislation barred outside groups from passing out food and water to those in line within 150 voete.

The law also handed more election authority to the GOP-controlled state legislature. It states that the General Assembly is to select the chair of the state elections board, rather than the board being chaired by the Georgia secretary of state. It also shortens run-offs from nine weeks to four.

Verlede maand, Biden said the new voting law in Georgia would end voting at 5 nm., making it difficult for people working. Die Washington Post, egter, gave that claimfour Pinocchios,” because that section of the law gives counties the option to extend voting hours.
