HOUSTON, TX. â February 22, 2016: True the Vote (TTV), the nation's leading votersâ rights and election integrity organization, today offered comment on a recent lawsuit filed by a collection of progressive interest groups with assistance from the U.S. Department of Justice, intent on removing citizenship verification measures in voter registration.
Litigation was initially triggered after the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) granted the requests of Kansas, Georgia and Alabama to require local users of the National Mail Voter Registration Form to submit documentary proof of U.S. citizenship. Since the filing, DOJ attorneys originally slated to represent the EAC in court today abandoned their client party and barred the Commission from providing its own legal representation, according to filings released today.
âIn advance of the 2016 election, the Obama Administration and its radicalized Department of Justice have launched a full scale effort to embolden leftist political allies and destroy election integrity,â True the Vote Founder Catherine Engelbrecht said. âTodayâs message is clear: any state or federal agency that works to prevent non-U.S. citizens from registering to vote in 2016 will witness the full wrath â lawful or not -- of the Department of Justice.â
âWe are being ruled by a government that brazenly uses its own Department of Justice to support the lawsuits of progressive interest groups while simultaneously denies defendants the right to legal representation in court. If the American people do not stand against this assault on liberty, where will it end?â Engelbrecht continued.
The True the Vote founder stressed that regular American voters have a role to play in fighting back against DOJ overreach, regardless of the court caseâs outcome:
âWhat we are witnessing is the common thug ethic on unabashed display in Washington. Common thugs use fear and intimidation as a means to control. Common thugs take what they want, never mind the collateral damage. Common thugs walk out on their responsibilities for selfish convenience. But, these common thugs can be stopped if law-abiding citizens will stand their ground. This November, True the Vote-trained election mon
“But Judge, we can’t win if it’s only Americans voting”.
Hard to believe.
Commie Obammie uses his “Justice” Department to try to break the law.
Obama trying to steal an election.
Right after Scalia dies too. What timing!
Has to make the best of his remaining time!!
I wonder if this had anything to do with it?
I HATE this country anymore!!! LAWBREAKERS are EVERYWHERE....Executive Branch, Judicial Branch, and Congress.
but be vigilant....
NO wetbacks votin round HERE....
With this group, think we are in for a rough ride!!!
you hate the government, not the country
Don’t hate the country. There are A LOT good honorable people.
The criminals that are openly breaking laws on the other hand... Have at it.
How does the average American help to stop this type of corruption of the election process?
54% of this country is CORRUPT and VOTED for Obama.....I have no use for them. Yes, there are a lot of good people in this country, BUT they are the MERE MINORITY!!!
Bullying by the federal government is not constitutional. Tenth Amendment. Read it and insist it be followed.
The combination of Clinton Motor Voter which requires clerks to offer voter registration, and Obama's executive order prohibiting clerks from asking about citizenship has led many clerks across the country to believe that non citizens can legally register to vote.
Obama is, for the sake of these illegal votes, throwing these non citizens under the proverbial bus since registering to vote or voting in a federal election can lead to rejection of citizenship applications, deportation or up to a year in the federal pen.
NM finally has a new designation for “undocumented residents”. Not sure what it entails.
Knowing the state legislature the right to vote will be there. Not sure.
And he is going to nominate this radical pagan Marxist law breaker to Scalia's seat on the court.
I pray God can heal our nation, but I think we are way, waaaay too far gone. We, as a nation, will never turn to Him again. Only a remnant of believers will do that.
