“It’s time we had proof of citizenship in federal elections. The fundamental right of choosing our representatives is threatened to the extent non-citizens are able to vote. Our elections are now tighter than ever and when a non-citizens votes, like a recipient of Obama’s amnesty for instance, the legitimate vote of a citizen gets cancelled out. This threat has never been more serious than it is today,” notes the Immigration Reform Law Institute in a post about the lawsuit by Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach to get the federal Election Assistance Commission amend his state’s version of the federal voter registration form to include proof of citizenship.
