Sen. Roger Marshall Warns D.C. Has Become A “War Zone” Amid Migrant Crisis

Sen. Roger Marshall (R-KS) expressed grave concerns about the safety of his employees walking to work in Washington D.C., which he described as a “war zone” due to the ongoing migrant crisis. Speaking on Fox Business’ “Mornings with Maria” on Tuesday Marshall emphasized the need to protect the federal district and ensure law-and-order officials are running it.

The senator is pushing for legislation that would require proof of citizenship for anyone to vote in D.C. elections. His proposed Demanding Citizenship in D.C. Elections Act aims to ensure that only American citizens can participate in the district’s electoral process.

Marshall’s concerns come after the District of Columbia Board of Elections announced that starting in 2024, qualified non-citizen residents may vote in local elections for offices such as Mayor Attorney General and D.C. Council members. However, non-citizens are still prohibited from voting for federal offices.

The senator warned that illegal migrants will “absolutely” be voting in the November elections, arguing that the line between local and federal elections will be blurred at polling booths. He stressed that Congress oversees D.C. elections as it is a federal district, not a state and called for the election of a mayor who will prioritize public safety.

Marshall accused Democrats and the DNC of undermining democracy and engaging in “election interference by design” by engineering what he called the “largest-scale invasion” of the country and turning non-citizens out to vote for Democrats.
