  • Supreme Court Refusal Protects Illegal Immigrants' "Right to Vote"

    The New American ^ | July 1, 2015 | Joe Wolverton, II, J.D.
    Yet another rejection of constitutional principles by the Supreme Court has been overlooked in the furor over the pro-Obamacare and same-sex marriage decisions. This time, it’s not what the justices said, but what they refused to say that is noteworthy. Reuters reports that the high court’s refusal to hear an appeal of the decision in the case of Kobach, et al. v. Election Assistance Commission, et al, had the effect of upholding the ruling handed down last November by the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.

    A coalition of civil rights and other activists demanded Thursday that U.S. Rep. Bob Goodlatte take action to revive a provision of the 1965 Voting Rights Act in a downtown Roanoke rally of more than 300 people. “I’m here to tell you something, Congressman Goodlatte. Fix the Voting Rights Act!” said Priscilla Ouchida of the Japanese American Citizens League, one of more than two dozen groups represented. Organizers hope the rally — which included state activists and national figures — will ramp up public pressure on the Roanoke County Republican, who chairs the committee where efforts to update the voter...

    In a commonsense decision, the Supreme Court refused to hear an appeal of a case that decided that people registering to vote in federal election don't have to prove their citizenship. That means that people registering to vote won't be bullied into proving citizenship, which now seems to be an irrelevant criterion for voting. “I am very pleased, obviously,” said Dolores Furtado, president of the Kansas chapter of the League of Women Voters. “It’s a good feeling because we’re truly trying to help” people get registered to vote. Furtado said the league’s main interest is in increasing participation in the...

    The Supreme Court effectively blocked an attempt by Arizona and Kansas to require voter ID after the high court declined to hear an appeal. By rejecting a joint appeal by the states, the high court left in place a November 2014 ruling by the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. That appeals court decided that the U.S. Election Assistance Commission, a federal agency that oversees changes to state voter registration procedures, was not required to grant the states' request that proof of citizenship be added to registration requirements. The Election Assistance Commission was established in 2002 to support and enforce...

    States not permitted to alter federal voter registration form to require proof of citizenship. The Supreme Court today refused to accept a case which sought to allow states to supplement a federal voter registration form so as to require proof of citizenship to vote. Such proof is particularly important given how freely many states are handing out drivers licenses to illegal immigrants, and the Obama administration’s unilateral implementation of quasi-amnesty deferrals (some of which were stopped in court). It’s just not enough anymore that someone is here legally (or at least, is not being deported) [Snip] This is not just...

    When Hillary Clinton issued a sweeping call for expanding and protecting voting rights, and called out Wisconsin and other states for passing discriminatory laws, Governor Scott Walker responded by blasting her views as “extreme” and “far outside the mainstream.” He defended his own record of cutting early voting days and implementing a strict voter ID law, saying these changes “make it easier to vote and harder to cheat.” But at a workshop held in Milwaukee in early June, state government employees struggled to explain the byzantine voting restrictions to a crowd of poll workers and community activists.

She claimed Walker had cut back early voting in Wisconsin and made it harder for college students to vote. We rated that Mostly True....

    He's also so often egregiously wrong, perhaps never more so than in his Monday column at the Hill. Williams is astonished that a recent poll, consistent with others, shows that over two-thirds of blacks support a photo identification requirement for voting. In the process, he cited perhaps the dumbest statistic I've ever seen on the topic, misrepresented a 2013 Supreme Court decision, and failed to understand that blacks may end up being most adversely affected if voter fraud ever become widespread.

    Democrats never say they are committed to stopping voter fraud, merely that they're dedicated to "everyone" voting. This smug admission tells you everything you need to know, or in other words, nothing you didn't already suspect. The truth is Voter ID doesn't discriminate against or disenfranchise anyone. How can it when everyone is held to same standard of accountability? If you can't even verify your identity, validate and protect the authenticity of your vote, how are you a victim of anything other than your own ignorance and apathy? People have TWO YEARS in-between elections to get a damn photo ID;...

    The recent cyber theft of millions of personnel records from the federal government was sophisticated and potentially crippling, but hackers with just rudimentary skills could easily do even more damage by targeting voting machines, according to security experts. In many cases, even the electronic ballots could be manipulated remotely, according to a new report. The report found that the AVS WINVote machines Virginia has used since 2002 have such flimsy security that an amateur hacker could change votes from outside a polling location. “This means anyone could have broken into the machines from the parking lot,” said Cris Thomas, a...

At speeches in Texas, Clinton railed against voter ID laws, praised efforts to expand early voting periods, and made the case for automatic voter registration. In the latter case, Clinton believes every American who turns 18 should be automatically registered to vote. She also would like to see everyone already over 18 registered in a similar way, though she declined to say how she would make this happen. Clinton’s remarks on automatic voter registration come only months...

    The universal voter registration system that Hillary Clinton is calling for is a terrific idea. Free speech and freedom of religion are every American's right; no paperwork is required to get them. Like the system recently embraced by Oregon, Clinton's proposal would automatically register all citizens to vote when they turn 18, unless they opt out. Automatic voter registration appears to be working well enough in Argentina, Australia, Austria, Chile, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy and Switzerland, and there's no reason to think that it cannot succeed here.

    It is an article of faith among progressives that mandatory voter ID laws are racist and discriminatory.

However, it is a well-known fact that in the United States, one must always and everywhere show a photo ID to board airplanes, rent automobiles, and purchase firearms. So why should voting, a fundamental and hard-won American right, be any different? Perhaps for these reasons, a new poll shows that the vast majority of Americans, most of whom...

Sixty percent of “Likely Voters,” disagreed and five percent were undecided. Democrats were more likely to support illegal immigrant voting, with 53 percent supporting the idea. Republicans, however, also indicated support. According to the poll, 20 percent of Republican...

    The federal voter registration form has zero safeguards. She was only caught because she accidentally self-reported. Last week, the Department of Justice Board of Immigration Appeals upheld a decision to deport Margarita Del Pilar Fitzpatrick for voting in a federal election. Fitzpatrick registered to vote in Illinois using the federal “Motor Voter” registration form. Fitzpatrick’s criminal act is one more example demonstrating that non-citizens voting in American elections is not a myth. The opinion by the Board of Immigration appeals stated: On August 5, 2005, she applied for an Illinois driver’s license and signed a voter registration application in which...

    Noncitizens are registering to vote and at best, it seems the federal government’s officials don’t care about this illegal activity. At worst, it raises questions about whether some in Washington support illegal voting, so long as it supports their political agenda. The exact number of noncitizens who are voting in our elections is difficult to quantify because of the bureaucratic quagmire perpetuated by federal agencies against the (very few) states that have the resolve to attempt to verify citizenship.

That’s the underlying plot in the latest major case in election law that has just been presented to the Supreme Court. Federal law says that states must accept and use a federal form for registering voters.

The AVS WinVote machines, used in three presidential elections in Virginia, “would get an F-minus” in security, according to a computer scientist at tech research group SRI International who had pushed for a formal inquiry by the state of Virginia for...

    Karl Marx who would be a Democrat Senator if he was alive today said, “The last capitalist we hang shall be the one who sold us the rope.” Last week’s runoff mayoral election in Chicago brought this quote to mind. It also suggested a comparison to the plot of Disney’s The Sorcerer’s Apprentice. In that production we see Mickey Mouse working as an apprentice to a sorcerer who orders him to tend to a series of chores that includes fetching water. Seeing his opportunity to use the power in the sorcerer’s wand for his own benefit, Mickey commands a broom...

    Great news for those interested in election integrity and common sense reforms like voter ID: the Supreme Court today removed the final legal obstacle to implementing Wisconsin’s voter ID law. The Court refused to hear the American Civil Liberties Union’s appeal of a Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals decision that threw out the injunction issued against the state’s ID law by federal district court Judge Lynn Adelman. Adelman, a Clinton appointee and former Democratic state senator, had thumbed his nose at the Supreme Court, claiming that he did not have to follow the Court’s prior 2008 opinion in Crawford v....

    The Supreme Court on Monday turned down a challenge to Wisconsin’s voter ID law, which it had previously kept from going into effect before November’s elections. The court’s decision not to review a federal appeals court ruling that upheld the law was a victory for Gov. Scott Walker (R) and perhaps other states that have tightened voting procedures to require additional identification.

    The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday rejected a challenge to Wisconsin's Republican-backed law requiring voters to present photo identification to cast a ballot, a measure Democrats contend is aimed at keeping their supporters from voting. The justices declined to hear an appeal filed by the American Civil Liberties Union, which challenged the law. The ACLU said it then filed an emergency motion with a federal appeals court to try to keep the law from taking effect immediately. Republican Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel said the law cannot be implemented for the state's April 7 election because absentee ballots are already...

    Police opened 51 investigations on Tuesday related to alleged voting fraud ranging from impersonation, stolen ballots and threats against ballot officials, and 23 suspects were being pursued. Several attempts to subvert the voting process were noted in the north – four voters who arrived at their designated voting stations in Nahariya, Kiryat Tiv'on and Kiryat Ata found that someone had already voted in their name. Local police began investigating each incident. Police said that one man claimed that someone else may have used his lost drivers license to vote in his name. A similar incident was reported in Afula where...

    PORTLAND, Ore. (Reuters) - Sweeping first-in-the nation legislation making voter registration automatic in Oregon was signed into law on Monday by Governor Kate Brown, potentially adding 300,000 new voters to state rolls. The so-called Motor Voter legislation will use state Department of Motor Vehicles data to automatically register eligible voters whose information is contained in the DMV system, with a 21-day opt-out period for those who wish to be taken off the registry. Supporters say the legislation's goal is to keep young voters, students and working families who move often from losing their right to vote. Republican lawmakers, who unanimously...

    Within the first couple of months of Obama’s illegal immigration executive , at least ninety thousand Social Security cards were issued to illegal aliens. Now Republican Senators led by Ben Sasse and Jeff Sessions are asking the Obama administration to answer questions on how many additional social security cards were issued. The answer is important because it will allow citizens to know just how much money taxpayers are spending to illegal aliens. Social Security cards are keys of the kingdom to illegal aliens. With them, they are able to access a number of all sorts of benefits, including the Earned...

    Last April House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) released a report implicating Democrat Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) in colluding with the IRS and Lois Lerner against the nonpartisan voters rights group “True the Vote.” Catherine Engelbrecht, the founder of “True the Vote,” testified before Congress in February. She was targeted by FBI, IRS, ATF, and OSHA after she filed for tax exempt status for her voters rights group. Engelbrecht said this during her testimony before Congress and Cummings, “Frankly, to sit before my accuser and be silent in the face of what he did was unconscionable.” ... This week the...

    The Obama Democrats have an audacious scheme for winning future elections. They just plan to import 5 million non-citizens and credential them as voters who will, in gratitude, vote Democratic. The way this devious formula works is stunningly simple. Just get the new Republican Congress (under Speaker John Boehner and Sen. Mitch McConnell) to pass a full-funding bill for Homeland Security without any exception for the funding of Obama's illegal executive amnesty, which will allow Obama to give work permits, Social Security numbers and driver's licenses to 5 million illegal aliens.
