Biden Administration Sues Arizona for Requiring Voters to Show Proof of Citizenship

Arizona

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.

You know Americans, the Democrat/Communist/Socialist elitists are indeed profiting from the unrest, human trafficking and drugs coming across our borders! Don’t be so niave, wake up and follow the money! When the illicit money supply was threatened by the last administration, that’s what started the hate Trump campaign, their rich lifestyle was threatened!

This isn’t news, this has been going on since Clinton was in office. The only difference now is the desperation of the DNC and dark money supporters who are backing China and want to control an authoritarian socialist government in America. Stop mail-in voting in your state and require verification for absentee ballots. Keep voting in America for American citizens. The first Bill that must be passed after the mid-term election is a Citizen Voting Rights Bill. Only verified American citizens have the right to vote in any election, city, county, state and federal. This was basically started with the air travel ID requirement, which was halted by the Democrats until after the 2022 election. I have a star on my drivers license. I validated my ID and citizenship to get it and at no extra cost. Stop lying to Americans, every citizen can be verified to vote!

I’m happy that you differentiated between Absentee Ballots and the unsolicited mailed out ballots sent in the millions by the Marxist Party. It seems the Fake News talking heads were all attempting to categorize Absentee voting with the mass mailed paper ballots following the stolen election.

It pleases me that some people know the difference. Having worked overseas with the military community for many years, our only option was to vote Absentee; and one must prove their identity in order to obtain these ballots.

Ridiculous! Legal ID should be required to cast a vote. And passports should be enforced at the borders! We are sick and tired of this!

Biden is just ticked off because this will prevent him from stealing this election, all states should require this.

What is wrong with requiring proof of citizenship to vote in federal elections? The right to vote is a right reserved only for those who ARE citizens of the US. Thank you Attorney General Mark Brnovich and Governor Doug Ducey! We need men like you who are willing to stand and fight. The Biden Administration has shown over and over again that they are more interested in a Global World Order than they are in protecting the National Sovereignty of the United States. Our founding fathers risked their lives, their liberty and their property to birth this great nation we call America. Like our founding fathers, Governor Ducey and Attorney General Brnovich are leading the way. Let’s follow!

According to Gateway Pundit Arizona will now vote to decertify the 2020 Presidential election. This is just one State and when others follow our real President will be put in office. No true President would allow the damage that is being done to our country to occur. I think Biden will be tried and convicted or treason.

Protecting illegal immigrants into own country is very important if you have plans to cheat big time on election. Saw tweet crying about Trump his past business failures.While showing a bankruptcy 4 times for the same project and the banks keep giving more money ,must really worried if you give money 4 times .Awesome Thomas Edison said” I have had over 2000 failures in my life with hundreds of winners. Failure is opportunity to succeed” Edison had over 1000 confirmed patents in his life time.Let’s get Trump back in office and help our country to return to world leader so that even the Democrats will cheer for Trump

Your quotation from Thomas Edison is highly relevant to those who quote Einstein to the effect that repeated trials, leading only to failure, is insane. I’ll go with Edison and you, based on my personal and observed successes owing to perseverance.
