Federal Judge Refuses to Block Citizenship Checks in Three States

A federal  judge on Wednesday refused to grant a preliminary injunction sought by a coalition of voting rights groups and the U.S. Justice Department against the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) in litigation over voter-citizenship checks.

At issue was a requirement in Kansas, Alabama, and Georgia that individuals registering to vote must provide proof of citizenship. The League of Women Voters, the NAACP, and the Obama Justice Department had sued Brian Newby, the U.S. elections official who changed the proof-of-citizenship requirements on the federal registration form at the request of the three states.

U.S. District Judge Richard Leon's ruling allows Kansas, Alabama and Georgia to demand that their residents submit proof of citizenship before signing up to vote even if they’re using the federal government’s registration forms.

The voting rights groups and the Obama administration had tried to halt the practice, arguing that federal law doesn’t require an extensive citizenship check when people register to vote, and saying the three states were imposing an extra burden on voters.

There you go again the guy in the white house is destroying this nation little by little

The only political thing I haven't quit (I left the GOP entirely) is my position as a voting clerk at the largest precinct polling station in my town -- being part of the voting system is the greatest honor I have...here in Alabama we take the integrity of our elections very seriously and because of the precautions we take there are very few false votes cast across the state.

The one place where there are sometimes election integrity issues is Birmingham-Jefferson County -- the last bastion for Democrats in Alabama ... if there is cheating it is there -- but even then, voting fraud is rare here -- because we check every registration to achieve the right balance of tough voting rules and the opportunity for every legal voter to cast a ballot and have it counted for his or her candidate.

Just a 'ploy' by The League of Women Voters, the NAACP, and the Obama Justice Department to 'suck the life' out of 'individuals registering to vote must provide proof of citizenship' RIGHTS of Individual States Rights Granted Under The United States of American's Constitution

Making 'Sure That Globalization Continues Into the Next Centuary' 

Does Alabama use electronic voting devices? Here in North Carolina we had a number of cases where electronic voting devices flipped from Romney to Obama. A person I know well said hers did that as she watched it. I guess the time delay didn't work or she was slow to go to the next "page." I always ask for paper ballots and hope the reader has not been tampered with.

Paul ... we use paper ballots & optical character readers which count only and have no other kind of programming so flipping votes is not possible ... I'm the voting clerk at our precinct ... I actually supervise the voting itself, I start (open up the voting machine and close it out when the polls close. We have separate Dem & Rep ballots and during the course of the day I verify that the number of D & R ballots (not the checked blocks) cast matches those signed out by voters.

At the end of the voting day I collect from the drop bin all cast ballots, then do a physical count to ensure that the actual count of D & R ballots matches the number of each party signed out to voters.

Then I run the digital print outs and do a third comparison...we do seven printouts -- six go into sealed envelopes and the 7th is posted on the outside of the door of the polling station. If there's any discrepancy at all -- even one missed vote that can't be accounted for, requires that our station inspector call the county voting registrar who sends a representative to the now closed station and we physically recount on the spot. If the situation cannot be resolved that ballot goes into a special envelope and is treated as a conditional vote.

Our polling station Inspector (official in charge) and a Sheriff's deputy take the completed poll station package to the county official counting center where the ballots are checked & the totals verified in public (any citizen can come watch the counting) ... once certified at the county level the totals are sent by secure intranet (closed system, not the public internet) to Montgomery where the Secretary of State tallies the county-certified vote totals; compiles certified county totals and forwards preliminary totals to the national counting center. The next business day the Sheriff himself delivers the certifications sheets to the Secretary of State, who upon review certifies that county's results; compiles the state official results and forwards the data to the national counting center via closed intranet.

I would have contested that on the spot....it happened lots of places and folks just said "oh well"...and let it stand. I would have made an issue..having been a poll watcher it is amazing the fraud that occurs or they try to get away with.

Looks like we have one judge that backs the law instead of bowing to those who want to put in a fix for Hillary's run for President! Good for us bad for the out of control lawless government!!

I am glad to hear this because we have to show our ID most anyplace we go.  Voting is important and we need everyone to show ID before they vote.  It doesn't stop all cheating but is sure keeps those that are not citizens from voting.  I agree that it is better to fill out paper forms instead of those machines. 

This just shows how important votes are because whoever is President will choose many more Judges and we all know what kind Hillary will choose.

Thank Goodness for judges like this one!!


Remove the judge from the bench for conduct.

Deb -- unless I misread the article this judge supported the ID to vote requirement.

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …


DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
