President Biden on Friday criticized a Georgia law imposing restrictions on voting and urged Congress to act on sweeping voting rights legislation. “This is Jim Crow in the 21st Century. It must end. We have a moral and constitutional obligation to act,” the president said in a statement. The newly signed law, among other restrictions, imposes identification requirements for mail ballots and makes it a crime for third-party groups to hand out food and water to voters standing in line.
