Justice Department Shenanigans Involved in Helping Illegal Aliens to Vote

The first step is to allow a massive new largely unassimilable underclass to illegally flood into the country. Second is to get it hooked on welfare. Third is to ignore immigration law so that illegal aliens are not deported. Fourth is to see to it that they vote:

Several well-funded organizations — including the League of Women Voters and the NAACP — are fighting efforts to prevent non-citizens from voting illegally in the upcoming presidential election. And the United States Department of Justice, under the direction of Attorney General Loretta Lynch, is helping them.

On February 12, these groups filed a lawsuit in D.C. federal court seeking to reverse a recent decision by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC). The Commission’s decision allows Kansas and other states, including Arizona and Georgia, to enforce state laws ensuring that only citizens register to vote when they use a federally designed registration form.

It looks like this sensible decision is being subverted by Lynch’s Department of Social Justice.

[W]hen Arizona sought to include citizenship-verification requirements with voter-registration forms, the institutional Left — including the League of Women Voters, People for the American Way, Common Cause, Project Vote, and Chicanos for La Causa — brought a lawsuit claiming that the EAC hadn’t approved such requirements. Incredibly, this fight over whether states can ensure that only citizens are voting went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. In 2013 in Arizona v. Inter Tribal Council of Arizona, a divided Court said that Arizona could not implement such a requirement unless and until the EAC agreed to change the instructions for use of the federal form to include the Arizona requirements.

However, the majority opinion in that case, written by Justice Antonin Scalia, stipulated that if the EAC refused Arizona’s request to accommodate the proof-of-citizenship requirement, the state could sue the EAC and establish in court that “a mere oath will not suffice to effectuate its citizenship requirement and that the EAC is therefore under a nondiscretionary duty to include Arizona’s concrete evidence requirement on the Federal Form.”

Yet again we see why Scalia’s replacement must be nominated by a constitutional conservative to preserve what sanity still remains in Washington.

The Court went so far as to say that Arizona could also claim that a refusal by the EAC would be “arbitrary,” since the agency “has accepted a similar instruction requested by Louisiana.”

But when Arizona made the request, acting EAC executive director Alice Miller nixed it while the four-member commission lacked a quorum. The denial letter was allegedly actually written by social justice warriors within the Voting Section of the Civil Rights Division of the Injustice Department.

Once the EAC regained a quorum of commissioners and hired a new executive director, the agency reversed the previously announced policy and allowed Kansas and Arizona to include citizenship-verification requirements with the federal voter-registration form. In other words, the EAC wound up doing the right thing, in accordance with the Supreme Court’s 2013 decision.

This is why the EAC is now being sued by the NAACP and the other militant moonbats. It will be represented in court by lawyers from that same Injustice Department — who can be expected to take a dive and let the suit win, a practice that is common when environmental groups sue the EPA to force it to impose ever more draconian measures.

The EAC is supposed to be an independent agency. Like the rest of the federal government, it is in the process of becoming politicized and weaponized under Obama.

Our elections, like the federal government itself, are degenerating into an elaborate farce.

    The only person the republican state of arizona could find to prosedute for voter fraud was a republican woman who voted for romney twice because she said he needed all the votes he could get. This after spending millions of dollars looking for illegal alien voting by attorney general and county attorneys. They even tried to pay an illegal alien to vote so they could arrest him but realized what was happening and refused so he was deported for not voting!

    Good to hear. And with voter ID requirements we can keep it this way.

    The SECOND WORST AG in American History (a CLOSE second !!)

    You should jump on those racists in Mexico. They require a valid, government issued voter photo ID card before you can vote in their elections. Those bastards won’t even issue them to anyone but Mexican citizens.

    Often I think of the end of Shawshank Redemption and how nice it would be to see Lynch, Holder, Obama, Kerry, Earnest, Hillary, et al cowering in some room, just like the Warden and Hadley were in that prison, watching with utter fear on their faces as dozens of real law enforcement rush up the stairs to finally deliver a much overdue fate.

    You notice the Progtroll focuses on AZ. That is naturally where you would start looking for voter fraud, not say, Chicago.

    I solemnly swear to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America [to the extent that it helps me forward the leftist agenda].

    We may as well elect al Qaeda to run the country, wouldn’t be any worse than it is becoming now.

    What would they do different from B. Hussein Obama?

  • 762×51

    Just remember, she would be AG without the help of Mitch McConnell.

    The Progressive GOPee establishment is every bit as culpable in this mess as the Progressive Democrats.

    AQ probably wouldn’t have supported the gay mafia movement, but that’s the only difference I can think of.

  • JeffersonSpinningInGrave

    Can’t argue with you there. Just waiting for turtle mitch to help Obama put a RINO on the SCOTUS before the next election.

  • 762×51

    Can’t say that would be out of character for old Mitch. I wonder how much payola he would take to get that done?

    I used this on a proggy at a party a couple weeks back, he sputtered, “Do you want to be like Mexico!?”

    I looked him in the eye, winked and said, “You betcha!”

    I thought he was gonna stoke out!

    3rd wave feminists would learn what it’s like to live under real instead of imaginary oppression. Leftist American Jews would be given no slack for being anti-Israel. And let’s see what happens to a militant atheist when he bitches about prayer in school. Man, if one could see all that without also suffering under Islamist rule, it would be a hell of a show.

    Yeah, shave their legs and armpits or face decapitation or stoning, decisions, decisions.

    I really like it when they actually foam at the mouth. Telling them this stuff so contradicts their twisted, diseased world view they go into auto-destruct mode.

    Obama brought Eric(Obamas wang)Holder in to pull off his “fast and furious” bullshit. Then before Holder could be brought up on charges, Obama used executive privilege to hide Holder from being prosecuted. Lynch will be no different. He will have her doing prosecutable offenses, then hide her under his cloak.

    Nothing like getting people who have already broken the law to break more with the fed gov’s approval. Seems that “representative” gov applies to the non-citizen only. They get the representation and we get hosed for the taxes. New declaration of independence and second war for independence anyone?
