Freedom Caucus Chairman Bob Good, R-Va., said Tuesday that Democrats have fought every effort Republicans have made regarding election integrity. 

"Sadly, the Democrat Party has fought us along the way," Good said on the "John Solomon Reports" podcast. "You would think that everybody would want voter ID, everybody would want proof of citizenship, everybody would want to prevent third party handling of ballots and drop boxes away from polling places and unsolicited mail-in ballots and those sorts of things," Good continued. "But the Democrat Party has fought us all along the way."

House Speaker Mike Johnson, R-La., and Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, held a press conference last week where they discussed the "Safeguard American Voter Eligibility (SAVE) Act" which would require proof of U.S. citizenship to vote in federal elections. 

Election integrity has made headlines over the past few years as voters around the country raise concerns about how elections are handled. 

Good said that Democrats don't want election integrity legislation to pass because they are counting on the votes of illegal immigrants to get them elected.

"You wouldn't be against proof of citizenship unless you want to allow undocumented Democrats or illegals to vote in elections," he said. "This bill would certainly address that [and] require proof of citizenship to be the law of the land across the country."
