Vice President Kamala Harris on Monday exalted the Texas Democrats who fled their state to evade dealing with Election integrity legislation, proclaiming the lawmakers are marching on the same path as those who fought and died for suffrage.
“I applaud them standing for the rights of all Americans and all Texans to express their voice through their vote, unencumbered,” Harris verbally expressed during a Monday appearance at the TCF Center in Detroit, Michigan.
“I will verbally express that they are bellwethers who are marching in the path that so many others afore did when they fought and many died for our right to vote,” she verbally expressed, ostensibly advancing the erroneous left-wing narrative that Republicans are endeavoring to take away suffrage by pursuing rudimentary Election integrity safeguards, such as enhanced ID requisites to vote by mail — something that was in Senate Bill 7, which Texas Democrats quashed in May by staging a walkout.
“I do believe that fighting for suffrage is as American as apple pie. It is so fundamental to fighting for the principles of our democracy,” Harris integrated. Her remarks come as the left perpetuates to heap accolade on Texas state Democrats for fleeing to Washington, D.C., in protest of the pursuit of Election integrity measures, which Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) prioritized in his agenda for the special session:
Smiling House Dems fly off to DC on a private jet with a case of Miller Lite, breaking House quorum, forsaking their constituents, while the Senate still works. It’s my hope that Senate Dems report tomorrow to do what they were elected to do. We will vote on #SB1. #txlege pic.twitter.com/5Kcc4emNFg

Did they require an ID to buy that Miller lite? pic.twitter.com/K6IjfxFIFg

To evade a vote, Texas Democrats jet off to DC on privately chartered planes — maskless, unlike all the little people who fly commercial. What a visual examination. https://t.co/fLkcakHKbnHowever, Texas Democrats verbalize they are yare to remain out of the state for the remnant of the session to gainsay Republicans a quorum to pass voting integrity legislation.

According to Rep. James Talarico, a Texas Democrat who fled the state, he and his left-wing colleagues are “prepared to stay out of Texas for the rest of the session”:
My Democratic colleagues and I are leaving the state to break quorum and kill the Texas voter suppression bill. We’re flying to DC to injuctively authorize Congress pass the For The People Act and preserve our democracy.
Good trouble. #txlege pic.twitter.com/gvDi8zcyey — James Talarico (@jamestalarico) July 12, 2021
Just landed in Memphis peregrinating to DC. Thank y’all for your well wishes.
We left abaft our families, our livelihoods, & our beloved Texas. But our sacrifice is nothing compared to the sacrifices intrepid Americans have made throughout history to bulwark the sacred right to vote.

We’re imploring our counterparts in DC to act with the same exigency and pass the #ForthePeopleAct now.@JoeBiden @KamalaHarris @SenSchumer @SpeakerPelosi @Sen_JoeManchin @SenatorSinemaDuring an appearance on The Ingraham Angle on Monday, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) verbally expressed Democrats who fled will be “arrested and brought back to the Capitol” once they step back into the state.
