And the plot thickens… A former Department of Justice official in the Civil Rights Division has said that local state government officials are registering non-citizens as voters, and this is even occurring when the person had identified themselves as non-citizens on their voter registration forms. Now he’s ready to present his documentation of these crimes to the Supreme Court this month.
The Daily Caller reports:
J. Christian Adams, a former United States Department of Justice official in the Civil Rights Division will show the Supreme Court in a brief later this month that non-citizens are registering to vote through the government’s motor voter program. The motor voter act became law during the Clinton administration as an easier way to register voters through their local Department of Motor Vehicles offices, but Adams says the program is failing to weed out those who are not American citizens.
“The bigger problem is that when they get those drivers licenses, there’s a government social services agency that is compelled under motor voter to offer voter registration,” Adams says. “For example, I’m representing a client — the American Civil Rights Union. We’re about to file a brief to the Supreme Court that shows actual voter registrations of people who on their voter registration forms that they’re not citizens, but they’re still getting registered to vote.”
Adams says they are going to file documents showing the names and addresses of non-citizens who were registered to vote, despite marking on forms they were not Americans, in their brief. Adams notified the Justice Department’s voting section and public integrity offices of the issue in letters sent to both DOJ divisions, but he says they have not acted on the information. TheDC sent an inquiry to the DOJ, but did not receive a response.
“[These will be] the actual voter registrations forms through motor voter,” he said, noting, “The point is, because of motor voter in issuing these alien document cards, you’re going to have non-citizens moving on to the voter rolls. It’s inevitable,” said Adams noting, “The Justice Department protects the lawless, because there’s a political benefit to this administration to allow lawlessness to occur. Because if those people who lawlessly are on the voter rolls go to vote, there’s probably a 9 in 10 chance they’re voting for Democrats.”
While many of us have suspected that this is going and on and part of this was the reasoning behind states like California issuing drivers’ licenses to illegal aliens. Furthermore, the problem is compounded because those states that issue these licenses are not clearly identifying that the person is not a citizen.
Former Federal Elections Commission official Hans von Spakovsky said, “The whole problem is most states are not issuing licenses that easily on their face show that the person holding it is not a U.S. citizen and that’s going to make it much more difficult to prevent people who are in the U.S. who are not citizens from illegally registering and voting in an election.”
Add in the mix that Barack Obama has not been enforcing immigration laws, has declared himself king in order to implement an illegal executive amnesty and the issuing of social security numbers for those who are here illegally and we are looking at a massive undermining of not only our government, but our culture as well.
According to the US Constitution, the only people allowed to vote are citizens of the United States. The U.S. Constitution stated in Amendment XV, which was ratified by the states in 1870:
“Section 1. The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude.
Section 2. The Congress shall have the power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.”
Later, the 19th Amendment allowed for women who are citizens of the US to vote. Additionally, the 24th and 26th Amendments reinforced the idea that voting is a right of US citizens only. However, the since Congress was only authorized to make sure those particulars of the Amendments were enforced through legislation, everything else, including Voter ID laws, are reserved for the States. According to the Tenth Amendment:
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
So, when a corrupt DOJ and state officials want to do what they are doing with non-citizens voting, they are in violation of the Constitution. Second, when the same corrupt DOJ goes after states over Voter ID laws, the governors of those states should tell the DOJ to take a flying leap in front of a moving bus because they have no authority in the matter.
Several states are trying to deal with the issue such as Kansas, Ohio, Georgia and Arizona. Among the last three, state law requires one to provide proof of citizenship in order to vote. This is one of many reasons why Voter ID is so important, despite what Obama’s Attorney General Appointee Loretta Lynch says.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
