Peltola skips work as U.S. House votes to ensure that non-Americans are not deciding elections


The U.S. House today passed the Safeguard American Voter Eligibility Act, or SAVE Act, which would make states require, documents that prove a person is a U.S. citizen when registering to vote.

Such documents could be a Real ID, passport, or identification that show a person’s place of birth. A standard driver’s license would not be enough by itself, and would require some kind of secondary proof, such as a birth certificate.

Most Democrats voted against it, but it passed, 221-198. Rep. Mary Peltola was avoiding the media and her duties in the Capitol this week, instead spending time hiding out along a river in rural Alaska, far from the uncomfortable votes and reporters’ questions about her views on President Biden’s competency.

The SAVE Act also calls for states to remove non-citizens from their voter rolls and for the Department of Homeland Security to start deportation procedures against those who are unlawfully registered.

“Today 198 House Democrats voted against preventing illegal aliens from voting in American elections,” House Speaker Mike Johnson said in a statement. “Over the past four years, Joe Biden has welcomed millions upon millions of illegals into the country knowing that noncitizens only have to check a box to vote in a federal election.”

“We have long known this was an intentional effort to turn them into voters, and now the American people know where every member of Congress stands on this critically important issue,” Johnson said. “House Republicans believe that only Americans should vote in American elections. House Democrats have now proven they believe that illegal aliens should vote in American elections.”

Democrat Minority Leader Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, for whom Rep. Peltola voted 18 times to become speaker in 2022, called it a “extreme MAGA Republican voter suppression bill.” He put pressure on Democrats to vote against it and all but five who were present went along. Peltola was among the 10 Democrats who were not present.

“There is no evidence that has been presented to suggest that undocumented individuals have been participating in federal elections,” Jeffries stated.

President Joe Biden said he will veto the legislation.

Congressional candidate Nick Begich said, “For most people, skipping a week of work to go fishing would get them FIRED. Hard working Alaskans don’t get that luxury and neither should their only member of the House. @MaryPeltola #GetBacktoWork.

States are not waiting for Biden. They have begun adopting measures to ensure that non-citizens are not voting in their states. With over 7.2 million illegal migrants having entered the United States since Biden became president, most continental states are experiencing the adverse conditions that come with criminal activity being brought over the border from Mexico.


This November, voters in North Carolina, Iowa, Kentucky, Missouri, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and Wisconsin will vote on ballot measures that would change their state constitutions to say that only U.S. citizens can vote in elections.


  1. It’s just as well. The “captain” would have voted against it.

    Any time she skips work is a good thing. That way she isn’t trying to destroy my country.


  2. Peltola the woman who has been married 5 times, has 7 kids and 2 grandkids is fishing hard for a husband #6. Don’t bother her anymore. She thinks she’s a good catch. She’s out fishing.

  3. The fact that Jeffries called it an “extreme MAGA Republican voter suppression bill.” just proved what we all knew and know, that the Biden regime and all Democrats have allowed in 30,000,000 illegals with the express intention that those illegals would vote for them, and keep them in power, and increase their ever tightening tyrannical grip on the nation.

  4. The Constitution leaves voting in State and elections up to the States and locals. Conservatives are Constitutional textualists, until they don’t like the text.

    • Maybe you should read the bill before commenting. This is the title:

      “To amend the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 to require proof of United States citizenship to register
      an individual to vote in elections for Federal office, and for other purposes.”

      It applies to Federal elections, not State or local elections.

  5. Skipping work to fish? That’s not uncommon in Ak and it’s called vacation. Do our elected reps get vacation and did she plan it? I’m NOT a fan but this seems like normal Alaskan behavior and Nick is virtue signaling. MAGA.

  6. A ridiculous measure since the incidence of illegals voting in federal elections is exceedingly rare, but hey, it whips up the conservative base which is the whole point of this, so…..

  7. As long as she’s out by a river, the better. Does less harm that way. I’d be happy to pay her to not go to DC.

  8. The GOP putting forth laws that are not needed in an attempt to show election corruption. How many non-citizens have voted in the last 5 presidential elections? Show the evidence? This is all about trying to limit who votes, not about stopping corruption. You will notice they did not include Tribal IDs in the list. I wonder why? THE GOP passing bills that have 0% chance of becoming law. There was a bipartisan border bill that would have helped secure the border, the GOP backed away when their “orange god” said don’t pass it.

    • The evidence is in the suppression and censorship experienced by the country from the last election cycle to the present moment. Many people are innocently ignorant because the MSM is biased, not objective, in their reporting of ‘news’. Securing the individual rights of ALL AMERICANS is the most critical position requirement of every elected official in DC. Skipping out of one’s duty to represent (why, Mary?) speaks for itself (irresponsible is the first word that comes to mind).

  9. This is a voter suppression bill. Illegals are not voting in any number, they are too busy working their tails off to make a living. The wealthy only want to pay low wages, when Americans refuse to do the work for minimal pay they look to the illegals to keep their costs down.

    • Not true. I think you’ve been brainwashed by the MSM channels. Hard to have a meaningful exchange w/o facts and truth.

    • Working their tails off??? You dont get out much to see the masses of them lined up at the freebie handouts and the shoplifting they are entitled to when they aren’t sneaking through neighborhoods looking for stuff to steal and trade for weapons to commit more serious crimes against innocent victims.

  10. “In the end”, those who voted against proving U.S. citizenship to vote, only outed themselves as the enemy within, whose goal is the destruction of our democratic republic.
