(FreedomWire.org) – Joe Biden’s leftist DOJ is suing the state of Arizona to block a new law requiring voters to prove their citizenship when registering to vote for federal elections.
The U.S. Justice Department on Tuesday sued the state of Arizona to block a state law that requires voters to provide proof of citizenship for some federal elections.
Due to take effect in January, the law violates the National Voter Registration Act by requiring proof of citizenship to vote in presidential elections or vote by mail in any federal election, the department said.
“This lawsuit reflects our deep commitment to using every available tool to protect all Americans’ right to vote and to ensure that their voices are heard in our democracy,” Kristen Clarke, the assistant attorney general for civil rights, told a press briefing.
The suit said a 2013 U.S. Supreme Court decision rejected an earlier attempt by Arizona to impose a similar documentary proof of citizenship requirement on applicants seeking to vote in federal elections.
It contends the state law violates the 1964 Civil Rights Act by requiring election officials to reject voter registration forms based “on errors or omissions that are not material to establishing a voter’s eligibility to cast a ballot,” the department said in a statement.
This is the same administration that is allowing millions of illegals into this country every year, and especially in border states like Arizona, which is why they hate this new law. But it’s exactly why Arizona needs it.
Just like with Voter ID, Democrats can’t allow this law because it hurts their ability to cheat to win elections! That’s what all of this is about.
Should nothing else change on the Supreme Court by the time this challenge gets there, I can’t imagine the DOJ winning this lawsuit.
It’s perfectly reasonable to have citizens prove their citizenship to vote, especially when there are so many illegals in the state.
