President Joe Biden continues to ignore inflation, blaming it on Russian President Vladimir Putin, but he seems to have time to pounce his Department of Justice on states for requiring residents to prove U.S. citizenship in order to vote in presidential elections.
Biden’s Department of Justice is SUING the state of Arizona for its law requiring residents to prove their United States citizenship in order to vote in presidential elections.
"In March, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey signed a bill into law that requires residents to prove that they are American citizens to vote in presidential elections. The law also requires new voters to provide proof of their address," reports Breitbart.
Biden’s DOJ recently filed and announced its lawsuit against the state of Arizona, claiming that the law violates the National Voter Registration Act:
In this action, the United States 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. [Emphasis added]
One of HB 2492’s provisions violates the NVRA as interpreted by the U.S. Supreme Court in Arizona v. Inter Tribal Council of Arizona, Inc. In that case, the Court rejected an earlier attempt by Arizona to impose a documentary proof of citizenship requirement on applicants who register to vote using the mail voter registration form prescribed by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission.
HB 2492 contravenes settled law insofar as it requires Arizona registrants using the Federal Form to also submit burdensome documentary proof of U.S. citizenship to local election officials if those officials cannot otherwise confirm the applicant’s citizenship status.
President Biden needs to focus on other things, like opening pipelines to lower gas prices, and keeping his promises to actual residents of the United States.
