Justice Department Sues Over Arizona Voter ID Law

The law was signed by Republican Governor Doug Ducey and requires proof of citizenship to vote in federal elections. An attorney employed by the state House had suggested the law would be challenged, but Speaker Travis Guntham declared it a “fight worth having”.

The law requires election workers to validate citizenship before voters can cast ballots for federal elections in person or by mail, according to NBC News.

Assistant Attorney General Kristen Clarke of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division said in a statement hat the “onerous documentary proof of citizenship requirement for certain federal elections constitutes a textbook violation of the National Voter Registration Act.”

The law is similar to one struck down by the US Supreme Court in 2013, but due to the new ideological makeup of justices State Attorney General Mark Brnovich is willing to defend the law anew.

“I will once again be in court defending Arizona against the lawlessness of the Biden administration,” Brnovich said. suggesting that the Biden administration was encouraging undocumented immigrants to vote by pushing back against ID laws.

Though the state has successfully implemented a voter ID law for its own elections, it has not been able to enforce the same standard over federal elections.

Governor Ducey has claimed more than 11,000 voters in 2020 did not provide proof of citizenship, more than the number of votes by which President Joe Biden won the state.

Arizona is right over the election fraud target when Joebama’s puppet masters sic Merrick the Marxist on them for requiring proof of citizenship to vote. Tell the DOJ to stuff it where the sun don’t shine and don’t go away mad, just go away.
FJB and F Demonrats.

this is administration is just a criminal cartel and what better way to show Americans that they don’t believe in law, but back door deals and payoffs to get their agenda passed. We don’t have law in fbi, doj, secret service or courts. Biden is firing the judges that Trump appointed, like Obama fired generals that weren’t woke and twisted – he fired 250 of them and replaced them with the likes of Milley and wokeness and leftist leanings.

The Biden DOJ is now known as the Lie Fest! Everything they are suing over State of Arizona is abiding by state and federal laws! It is the DOJ that is misrepresenting the existing laws. Biden is breaking the law as a norm. The AG is a joke!
