The Democrats have just won a huge victory in the US Supreme Court that could effectively keep them in power indefinitely.
In 2004, Arizona voters passed Proposition 200 which required everyone wanting to register to vote to produce the necessary documents to prove that they were a US citizen. Prop 200 required anyone renewing a driver’s license with an issue date after 1996 or applying for a new license using the federal registration application form to produce a US birth certificate, passport or any other official document proving US citizenship. Failure to do so would result in the state rejecting the voter registration form.
You would think that this was a great law to insure that the thousands of illegals in the state would not be allowed to vote in any election since the law requires that only citizens of the country have the right to vote. But that’s not good enough for liberal Democrats and the illegals who want more rights than citizens have, so they challenged the constitutionality of the law, even though it was passed by a majority of the people. When the case was heard by the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals (which is THE most liberal court in the land), Proposition 200 was overturned. The 9th Circuit ruled that the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 superseded state law and since it did not require proof of citizenship, the Arizona law was struck down.
The National Voter Registration Act of 1993 was pushed through a Democratic controlled Congress and signed by then President Bill Clinton. Known as the Motor Voter Act, the federal law allowed for anyone applying for or renewing a driver’s license to register to vote. It also provided a means for anyone applying for any form of social services to be given the opportunity to register to vote.
Arizona appealed the liberal court’s decision and the case was then heard before the US Supreme Court. On Monday, the Supreme Court voted 7-2 against Arizona and its citizens. The ramifications of the decision also affect similar laws in Alabama, Georgia, Kansas and Tennessee. About a dozen other states have been considering adopting their own immigration and/or voter registration laws to prevent non-citizens from being able to vote.
Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas voted to uphold proposition 200. In his dissention, Thomas wrote:
“[The Constitution] authorizes states to determine the qualifications of voters in federal elections, which necessarily includes the related power to determine whether those qualifications are satisfied.”
Anthony T. Caso, Associate Professor at Chapman University School of Law reacted to Monday’s decision saying that it opened the door for non-citizens to vote. He also said:
“The court’s decision ignores the clear dictates of the Constitution in favor of bureaucratic red tape.”
Justice Antonin Scalia, who did vote against Arizona stated that states can submit a request to the federal government for the inclusion of additional identification information. Indicating that other states have submitted such requests, Scalia stated:
“[The Election Assistance Commission] recently approved a state-specific instruction for Louisiana requiring applicants who lack a Louisiana driver’s license, ID card or Social Security number to attach additional documentation to the completed federal form.”
This does open the door for Arizona to submit such a request, however the chances of approval are slim considering the liberalness of the most of the federal government.
Therefore, any non-citizens and illegal aliens who obtain a valid driver’s license or applies for any form of social aid can fill out a federal voter registration card and just answer yes to being a US citizen and they will be allowed to register and vote in the elections. No proof of citizenship can be required. Just imagine the 11 million illegals that will be applying for driver’s licenses and welfare, being able to vote illegally in local, state and federal elections. They could totally change the outcome of many elections in the future and keep their liberal buddies in control for years to come. Elections from here on out will be won by voter fraud instead of legally.
