AG Merrick Garland Unaware of Pro-Biden Flyers (Video)

Written by Elizabeth Thompson.

Election Integrity emerges as a hot topic once more. During a recent Justice Department budget hearing, Attorney General Merrick Garland faced pointed inquiries from Rep. Andrew Clyde, R-Ga., regarding allegations of flyers instructing illegal immigrants to vote for Joe Biden. These materials reportedly surfaced near a migrant camp outside Matamoros, Mexico, and were said to be distributed by the Resource Center Matamoros—an affiliate of the Soros-funded Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society.

Troubling Allegations and Denials

The Spanish-language flyers carried a bold message: “Reminder to vote for President Biden when you are in the United States. We need another four years of his term to stay open.” Despite the clear implications of these flyers, the Resource Center Matamoros has repudiated claims of their authenticity. The controversy deepens with Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas’ ties to the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, spotlighting potential conflicts of interest.

Garland’s Response Raises Questions

When questioned, Garland expressed complete unawareness of the flyers. “I’ve never seen or heard of that poster. It’s the first time I’ve ever heard of it,” he asserted. His claim of ignorance did little to quell the concerns of Clyde and other conservatives, who are alarmed by the lax attitude toward voter fraud and election integrity. Moreover, Garland’s stance on voter ID laws, which he deems potentially unconstitutional, only fuels the debate on securing the electoral process in America.

The Voter ID Controversy

Garland’s remarks come amidst broader discussions on voter ID requirements. He shared his personal experiences of never needing to show ID at the polls, contrasting sharply with Rep. Clyde’s routine experience of ID verification. This discrepancy underscores a fundamental division in perspectives on voting security. The Justice Department’s stance against local measures aimed at preventing voter fraud, as stated by Garland to a predominantly black church congregation, further complicates the narrative. Garland emphasized that the “right to vote is still under attack,” criticizing state efforts to impose voter ID laws and other ballot security measures as discriminatory.

Our Take

The scenario depicted raises significant concerns about the commitment of our leaders to uphold election integrity. If flyers indeed were distributed to encourage illegal voting, this represents a severe breach of trust and undermines the democratic process. Attorney General Garland’s apparent lack of awareness—or, possibly, his disregard—highlights a worrying trend among some officials to downplay issues critical to the preservation of a fair electoral system. As conservatives, we must advocate for stringent voter ID laws and other safeguards to ensure every vote cast is legal and legitimate, protecting our democracy from any form of manipulation.
