I'll be a guest with Bill O'Reilly tonight at 8pm and 11pm ET. Please tune in!
Big news out of the Supreme Court today, as the Justices struck down an Arizona state law which required people registering to vote in federal elections to show proof of citizenship.
As Reuters reports, "In a 7-2 vote, the court said the voter registration provision of the 2004 state law, known as Proposition 200, was trumped by a federal law, the 1993 National Voter Registration Act.
"The federal law requires prospective voters to provide one of several possible forms of identification, such as a driver's license or a passport, but no proof of citizenship is needed. Would-be voters simply sign a statement saying they are citizens."
Given this decision, Republican immigration "reformers" such as Sens. Marco Rubio, John McCain, and Lindsay Graham, and those who support what they're doing, such as Senator Kelly Ayotte, ought to demand one key provision before moving forward with ANYTHING: that in addition to enforcing the border and gathering basic information about the illegal population FIRST, they ought to be demanding a change in that 1993 federal law to REQUIRE those registering to vote to demonstrate citizenship. PERIOD.
And if those Senators will not demand it, we must. NOW.
