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.

As soon as Republicans retake the House in November and are sworn in to office in January, their first order of business needs to be the impeachment of Biden and Harris.

Please find ONE person who doesn’t have a driver’s license or an ID of some kind. Nothing wrong with requiring a person to prove they are a citizen to vote!

I don’t think that there can be anything more common sense based than requiring every voter to identify themselves. The corrupt democratic party has been populated by chameleons who started off by championing the right to own slaves. Now it claims to be the party that champions the rights of minorities. One thing is for certain, whether or not something is good for America does not matter to democrats as long as it gets them more votes.

The support of ever citizen must be enlisted to support efforts to push back against this lawless, corrupt, criminal administration. Long-established media cannot be trusted, nor depended upon, to publish un-opinionated articles about daily events affecting everyone’s security, prosperity and pursuit of happiness. The Gannett organization has sucked up dailies and weeklies across the nation to provide platforms for their biased reporting. Conservatives must establish their own publications, like The Epoch Times, and get them into every conservative household. It is time to push back against Progressive conrol of the “deplorables.” Trump can help fund it, but not control it. If his hand is as undisciplined as his mouth, the folks don’t need it.

The only reason to sue aver election integrity is if you’re a political party of frauds, thieves, and liars. Or, maybe it’s a form of domestic terrorism?

It’s obvious Dems attempt to destroy this country and they’re doing really good job. This was a 2020 coup and we need to take back our country in the mid-terms. How there hasn’t been a Revolution yet! They’re pushing it!!! We all know exactly why the border is open. I for one have no compassion for illegals. America first!!!

Everyone knows that identification is needed to verify that a person is the person he/she claims to be. I need to show my ID for the simplest of things, like buying beer at 69 years old. However, the Biden administration pushes for no ID voting in person and by mail. Democrats value votes over honesty. They have absolutely no standards when it comes to voting practices. They would rather win, no matter what, than live in a country with fair elections. The Democrats are power-hungry zealots who are constantly on the warpath. To the Democrats, all’s fair in love, war, and politics.

This is an important action by the Biden administration. It could shore up the Democrats’ efforts to steal elections, like they did in 2020.

Someone should sue this senile old waste of skin. As a matter of fact Biden should be charged criminally for the open boarder. The drugs coming across the border are killing Americans every day. Biden and his Party don’t care, they just see these illegals as new Dem. voters. One of his jobs as Commander and Chief is to protect WE THE PEOPLE from the invasion happening at the border. To the Biden supporters, HOWS THAT BIDEN THING WORKING OUT FOR YOU?

Hmmm, Arizona is a border state that is being loaded with illegals entering the country and the Joke Biden administration doesn’t want proof of American citizenship to be required?? Yeah, thanks Captain (Biden) Chaos. The federal government likes to pretend Americans are idiots and won’t know how to prove their citizenship. There is a video on YouTube showing liberals being interviewed on needing simple ID to vote in elections. It was conducted in NYC. They ask liberals if the law is good and they all say it’s not fair and it’s against minorities because, as one liberal stated “they may not know how to go to the DMV and get ID”. Yes, other answers were similar. They then interviewed actual minorities and they were beyond offended stating “do they really think we don’t know how to get ID?” “we have drivers license’s you know?” The dems try to hide behind equality and fairness meanwhile we all know the true reason for wasting taxpayer dollars on insane lawsuits and interfering in states’ rights……. Give illegals free “everything” and you have bought their “vote”. Joke Biden and the dems are disgusting.

Well, we wonder no more why Biden welcomes illegals (new voters) across the border! Doesn’t the U.S. Constitution require that voters be U,S. Citizens?

The democrats want to always look like they are standing up for the underdog. They are as phony as fools gold. It’s all about publicity and getting re-elected. I think the dems are disrespectful of people when they try to make them look helpless. If you are a legal citizen you will have no trouble proving it. The dems talk about fairness but there is nothing fair about non citizens voting in this country’s elections. Name one company or organization that allows anyone to walk in off the street and vote in their election.

It is absolutely mandatory, in my opinion, that ID and U.S. citizenship be required to vote in U.S. elections. The proper path to U.S. citizenship is based on, and should be based on, legally entering the U.S.A. as prescribed by law, and completing the proper courses of activities that lead to U.S. citizenship. If one does not do both actions, then one neither belongs here, nor has the right or privilege to vote in our governance been earned.

What else is new only is this 3world country of ours which we are turning into, thanks to the Democrats and Rinos is this protest possible. Some of us know that the last election was stolen. Elections should only take place on 1 day and 1 day only with voters having to show a valid ID.

How difficult would it be for a judge to decide this lawsuit?
The National Voter Registration Act of 1993, and the Civil Rights Act of 1964 are direct infringements on the constitutional right of the various states to regulate their own polling place rules.

“unlawful and unnecessary requirements that would block eligible voters from the registration rolls for certain Federal elections.” ??? This charge was somewhat confusing to me until I realized that it had to have originated from the new “Ministry of Truth Department” in the Biden Administration. One can easily understand that “eligible voters” would be disenfranchised when one applies Democrat logic to such state governance.

Question: With such Biden Administration law suits, is there any non-liberal reader who doubts the agenda of the Democrats? I’m thinking about the government described in the book “1984”.

AND THERE’S THIS: HAVA, is a United States federal law which passed in the House 357-48 and 92-2 in the Senate and was signed into law by President Bush on October 29, 2002.

If a person registers to vote by mail and has not previously voted in a federal election in a State, Section 303(b) of the Help America Vote Act of 2002 established new requirements.
Where a person registers to vote by mail and has not previously voted in a federal election in a State, if the voter does not qualify for one of the exemptions in Section 303(b)(3) of HAVA (described below), then he or she must submit one of the forms of identification required by Section 303(b)(2)(A) of HAVA the first time that he or she votes in a federal election. These forms of identification are: 1) a current and valid photo identification; or 2) a copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other government document that shows the name and address of the voter. If the voter does not present the required identification, Section 303(b)(2)(B) of HAVA provides that he or she may nonetheless cast a provisional ballot.

REPUBLICANS ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL! AND LOOK HOW DEMOCRATS HAVE USED THESE LAWS TO MANIPULATE VOTER REGISTRATION!

REPUBLICANS: FIX THIS AFTER NOVEMBER!

TAKE NOTE: THESE ARE VOTER REGISTRATION LAWS, NOT ACTUAL VOTING LAWS. SO STATE LAWS REQUIRING CITIZEN IDENTIFICATION TO VOTE SHOULD STAND!!!!!!!!!!

I do not now live in California but I used to live in L.A. county, on the edge of San Bernardino county. I had to go to the DMV that was in L.A. county. Since the early 70’s the DMV was crowded with 85-95% illegals. It was hard to move between lines and hard to get a worker that spoke English or at least spoke English as a first language. Every single one of those illegals got a driver’s license, possibly an ID. That was FIFTY YEARS ago! What is it like NOW?
Although a driver’s license is not considered proof of citizenship, I know that it is used for such in many locations.
It is the same with Social Security cards. Just as it was not impossible for an illegal to get a SS Card Fifty years ago (not at all easy but definitely not impossible) it remains, for many illegals, their proof of citizenship.
And how many illegals walk over the border with citizen documents in hand, provided (probably with life indenture) provided by coyotes?

I still cannot comprehend why it is even a question…..non-citizens do not have a vote…..it’s simple.
I don’t believe in any other nation that allows voting, that non-citizens get to vote…I may be wrong, and often I am, but I think that’s correct about voting. It is obvious to me, that anyone who allows non-citizen voting is a threat to this Republic….non-citizens should not be allowed to vote, to own property, to get any benefits of any kind from any entity of the government. That would certainly put a stick in the eye of those who want immigrants to come here, jump on the band wagon of freebies and become a voter beholden. This is just one facet of how screwed up and the system has become and just how screwed we who are citizens are going to be in the end.

I’ve lived in California for 70 years, welfare and handouts are a way of life, vocation, if you will. In order to sign up for these programs they must have ID. SO, don’t tell me that it’s a hardship for people to provide ID to vote. They all have ID to get their government checks. End of story!!

Isn’t elections and the process the states right? If the Biden Admin is going to sue Arizona over the photo ID rule then shouldn’t they be suing the states over the background checks and all the bull that we go through to exercise our 2nd Amendment rights? If it’s good for one right it’s good for all. The Biden Admin should stick to what they know best, kissing chinas butts.

This is a State’s Rights issue that Biden is once again infringing upon. If I remember correctly we fought a War of Independence for infringing upon our rights. As well as other things. Biden makes King George during our colonial time look like a nice person compared to him. Biden is acting like a Fascist or Communist Dictator.

This is a little off the subject but, let’s be honest with everything right now, the entire system has completely fell off the cliff. Covid was the ignition, this is without a doubt a planned strategy from the beginning. Destroy our energy independence, collapse our economy, have supply chain shortages with everything, have a proxy war! And then after everything collapses ( and it is RIGHT NOW!) have a tyrannical government try to change everything to a communist union system! It’s all a planned strategy. Wake up.
