Biden uses Selma ‘Bloody Sunday’ visit to attack GOP voting legislation

by ian

Yesterday marked the 58th anniversary of “Bloody Sunday” in Selma, Alabama. President Biden visited the town to honor the day police horrifically attacked peaceful protesters marching against racial discrimination.

The day is remembered as a defining moment in the civil rights movement.

During his visit, Biden continued his push for Democrat backed voting legislation. At the same time he attacked recent election security laws in Republican led states.

Biden then called on congress to pass the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. Congressional Republicans oppose these voting measures, saying they open the door for fraud.
