Voter ID laws intended to protect legal citizens

A federal court in Kansas recently rendered a decision against the federal government’s interference with state efforts to combat voter fraud. Kansas won total support for its laws to stop voter registration by illegal aliens and other non-citizens. This ruling upheld the power of the states to require the U.S. Election Assistance Commission to include proof of citizenship requirements on voter registration forms. Until now, the form required only a signature to affirm citizenship without any proof.

Illegal aliens break the law to enter this country. Therefore, it is naive to think they would never lie in signing a form. This ruling is a step forward for states that are trying to protect their citizens.

Liberals cry “voter suppression.” Yet the only voter suppression in this law is of illegal votes that should never be cast.
