President Joe Biden endorsed the moving of the MLB All-Star game and other sporting events over the state's voting law.
In an interview with ESPN's Sage Steele, Biden said he "strongly supported" the move, calling the law "Jim Crowe on steroids."
Biden's comments came as activists continue to call for the re-locating of the MLB All Star game set to take place on July 13 in Truist Park, Georgia, home of the Braves.
"Look at what's happened across the board. The very people who are victimized the most are the people who are the leaders in these various sports, and it's just not right," Biden said. "This is Jim Crow on steroids, what they're doing in Georgia and 40 other states."
Georgia's voter ID law, titled the Election Integrity Act of 2021, makes it so that citizens are required ID to cast their votes. These ID's can be obtained free of charge.
