State Had Required Proof of Citizenship
By Harold Hutchison

Arizona’s law requiring proof of citizenship before being able to register to vote under the 1993 “Motor-Voter Law” was struck down by the Supreme Court on a 7-2 vote. The court rules that the federal law pre-empted state level provisions.

Only two justices, Clarence Thomas and Samual Alito, voted to uphold the law. Last year, another Arizona law seeking to combat illegal immigration was struck down by the Supreme Court.

Is there anyone in Washington willing to secure the border?
