On Tuesday, Biden’s Department of Justice announced a lawsuit against the state of Arizona for requiring its registered voters to show proof of their American citizenship to vote in federal elections.
The lawsuit came in response to an election integrity bill, H.B. 2492, which was signed into law by Arizona’s Republican Governor, Doug Ducey, back in March. After the bill’s signing ceremony, Governor Ducey described the law as “a balanced approach that honors Arizona’s history of making voting accessible without sacrificing security in our elections.” In addition to ordering voters to verify their citizenship as a requirement to vote, the legislation demands that new voters show proof of their address when registering. H.B. 2492 is currently set to go into effect on January 1, 2023.
According to the lawsuit, United States v. Arizona, the Department of Justice “challenges certain provisions of HB 2492 on the basis that they violate Section 6 of the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 and Section 101 of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.” The lawsuit also wrongfully labels Arizona’s common sense election integrity measures as “unlawful and unnecessary requirements that would block eligible voters from the registration rolls for certain federal elections.” However, it should be noted that Arizona has required evidence of citizenship to vote in state elections since 2004, so Arizona voters are obviously capable of adhering to the policies outlined in H.B. 2492.
Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich responded to Biden’s lawsuit by promising to fight it. To quote Brnovich, “In addition to free rooms and transportation for those illegally entering our country, the DOJ now wants to give them a chance to vote. It’s another round of Brnovich v. Biden. I will once again be in court defending Arizona against the lawlessness of the Biden administration.” In 2021, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Brnovich in the Brnovich v. Democratic National Committee case. The decision upheld Arizona’s H.B. 2023 bill, which prohibited out-of-precinct voting and the detrimental practice of ballot harvesting. Brnovich’s winning record against Democrats combined with the Biden administration’s lackluster arguments in a variety of cases suggests that the lawsuit will likely fail.
The Biden administration is more concerned with protecting illegal immigrants and their ability to possibly vote than American citizens and the security of their elections. Given the circumstances, the intentions of Biden and his Democrat allies are apparent: to bring as many new voters into the United States as possible to serve as a permanent left-wing voting bloc.
