War On Citizenship

A U.S. Court of Appeals has invalidated an Arizona law requiring proof of citizenship to vote in state and federal elections. Not only our borders but our voting booths are wide open.

The uber-liberal 9th Circuit decided that you don’t have to be a U.S. citizen to vote in our elections, or even be required to prove you are. It struck down Proposition 200, a measure passed by Arizona voters in 2004 requiring individuals to produce proof of citizenship, such as a passport, to register to vote, and a picture ID such as a driver’s license, or two pieces of nonphoto ID, in order to cast a ballot.

The law was designed to keep illegal aliens from voting in our elections, which we think they should not be entitled to do. Some 30,000 noncitizens were prevented from registering to vote in the first four years of the law. Georgia is the only other state with a citizenship mandate requirement so it too may face a court challenge.

In addition to the traditional absentee ballots, originally intended for people with real excuses, we have motor voter, same-day voting and voting by mail, all opportunities for fraud and corruption.

The sanctity of the ballot box and the integrity of our electoral process is threatened by those who think voting is just another form of entitlement.
