Skip to comments.Iowa secretary of state pushes ahead with noncitizen voting rule
Posted on 01/03/2013 8:37:59 AM PST by Free Vulcan
Iowa Secretary of State Matt Schultz is moving forward to establish procedures for removing voters from registration rolls if they can't prove citizenship, with a public hearing scheduled for today that is expected to draw critics who want to stop the change.
Schultz's proposed voter-suppression rules will unfairly target Latino immigrants, intimidate voters from exercising their rights and could result in voters' being purged from the rolls without cause, said Ana Belen Mancebo, a member of the government watchdog group Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement.

We’ve got the same brand of SOS here in Michigan as well. We do love Ruth Johnson.
Matt Schultz is one of the VERY FEW good Republicans in an otherwise GOP-e/RINO Infested State(Steve King being another that’s about it).
Sigh. This tired lie, repeated.
Latin immigrants who ARE citizens know exactly where there citizenship documents are located, and are proud to prove it.
Everytime the Democrats and liberals holler about Gun Control, Magazine limits, grandfathering, Tax Stamps for weapons, each Republican politician or official in this country should correspondingly implement a “draconian” rule designed to get illegal voters off the voting rolls. Tit for Tat.
Birth Certificates, Drivers Licenses, Original Social Security Cards (NOT Numbers), Government Photo IDs, NICS checks, and yes FINGERPRINTS, the whole nine yards. It’s what they made me do to get my CCW license.
For those American Citizens that would have to re-prove their elligibility, it is the price of true freedom from illegal invasion and corruption of our government.
typo: “ *their* citizenship documents are...” English really is my first language.
good on him. i had to read the first sentence as i inferred from the title they were going to let non-citizens legal and illegal vote. i think the freak state does that for local elections because it isn’t fair the illegal criminals (but i repeat myself) living in the community and paying sales taxes don’t have a say.
we have been californicated in colorado and our entire state government is infested with dhimmi libtard vermin.
I believe we should give the liberals everything they want and quit voting. Let the nation collapse and let's start over again with whoever survives the conflict. This is not saracasm. I'm serious. I belive that I should plan to start supporting liberal causes and help the nation head to the bottom as fast as possible. Apparently, that's what most of the people want.
The only thing that would change my mind is for 20-30 people to PM me and say they'll meet me prior to the next school board meeting at this particularly onerous public school and raise hell because of their liberal policies. Waiting...waiting...waiting...not going to happen. If you're not going to come together and start protesting stupid stuff, then you're going to have stupid stuff, so stop complaining about it.
“unfairly target Latino immigrants” is “code” for WORTHLESS Mexicans.
righteous!!! And all states should eliminate early voting days if they have them. Vote on election day or don’t complain! Too too much fraud in early voting. If you are too stupid to show up on election day then this is your problem not mine
Matt can’t be fired, he’s an elected official.
Reps and Dems are tied in Iowa registration, so I’d say support for him is good.
While I don’t believe much good will come out of Washington awhile, state politics are different. Sorry about what is happening at your school, but something that small isn’t going to make me lay down for liberals.
VERY good man!
God bless him.
It's not that small. That's only the last school I taught at before changing careers. Every school is full of liberals. Seems like just about no one cares about the problem.
And JUST how MANY times has YOUR name been on a School Board Election Ballot(mine has/I lost)? My name will be on there AGAIN.
Tom Harkin is NOT happy.
Again, sorry for the difficulties with liberals down there, but here in Iowa we are moving things in the right direction. Not giving up on that now.
DOJ AG Eric Holder’s lawsuit coming in 3, 2, 1......
Is it a crime to be registered to vote and not be a citizen? Then press charges and deport also.
Iowa not subject to many laws which apply only to the Old South.
Soros’s SOS project paying off in SPADES!!!
