Arizona, Kansas Win Court Case to Require Proof of US Citizenship to Register to Vote


I am thoroughly convinced that the only reason liberal Democrats are so anxious to pass their immigration reform bills is to set up the means for millions of illegal aliens to vote in US and state elections even though it is not legal for them to vote.

In many states, all someone needs is a valid state driver’s license to register to vote.  On voter registration forms, it asks the question if you are a US citizen and whether you are or not, all you have to do is check ‘yes’ and you will be registered to vote.  This is why Obama made his illegal DREAM Act executive order to allow millions of illegals to remain and work in the country.  Many states like California allow the illegals to obtain a valid state driver’s license, thus paving the way for illegals to register to vote.

Arizona and Kansas passed laws that forbid illegals from obtaining a valid state driver’s license or any state benefits.  However, they decided to take stronger measures to avoid voter fraud in requiring anyone registering to vote to provide proof that they are a US citizen.  Proof can be in the form of a birth certificate, passport or other legal document that proves citizenship.

To accomplish this, both state election officials, Kris Kobach of Kansas and Ken Bennett of Arizona, filed a federal lawsuit against the US Election Assistance Commission to add the proof of citizenship to the federal voter registration forms.  Liberal groups including the Democrats argued that such a requirement would block many of their young and poor Democratic voters from being able to register and vote.

Arguments on the lawsuit were heard before US District Judge Eric Melgren in Wichita, Kansas.  This week Melgren ruled that the federal commission had no legal authority to deny the request from the two states and ordered the commission to revise the federal voter registration form immediately to include proof of citizenship.  In his ruling, Melgren stated that the US Constitution gives states the power and right to establish voter requirements.  He also said that Congress has not preempted this right of the states.

Tom Horne, Arizona Attorney General responded to the court’s ruling, saying:

“Today’s decision is an important victory for the people of Arizona against the Obama administration, assuring that only Arizona residents and not illegals vote in Arizona elections.”

Kris Kobach, Kansas Secretary of State also commented to the ruling, saying:

“This is a huge victory for the states of Kansas and Arizona.  They have successfully protected our sovereign right to set and enforce the qualifications for registering to vote. We have now paved the way for all 50 states to protect their voter rolls and ensure that only U.S. citizens can vote.”

Bryan Whitener, a spokesman for the US Election Assistance Commission sent out an email stating that the ruling is ‘under review.’  If they decide to appeal Melgren’s ruling, it will go before the US 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver.  Knowing how much the Democrats are counting on millions of illegal votes to win their elections, I’m sure they will appeal the decision and if necessary take it all the way to the US Supreme Court.

If this decision stands and other states follow along, this could be a serious blow to the Democrats power in Washington DC.  But let me ask you a question: Why have Democrats fought so hard to prevent photo ID laws, the cleaning up of state voter registration rolls and requiring proof of citizenship in order to vote?

Their argument that it discriminates against minorities and poor people is bogus.  There are many poor whites as well as blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Europeans, American Indians and so forth.  But the very groups that the Democrats point to receive tons of government aid and they have to show some kind of ID in order to receive their aid don’t they?  If they can obtain an ID to get their welfare, food stamps, housing and healthcare assistance, then surely they can obtain the proper ID when it comes to voting.  Therefore their argument is bogus and illogical, leaving only one reason why they fight such voter laws and that is they need voter fraud in order to win their elections. They need people voting for other people, for dead people, for pets and they need illegals and legal non-citizens to vote Democratic so they can continue to destroy America.
