Kansas, Arizona Sue US Agency Over Voter Forms That Aid Illegals

The American Civil Rights Union has submitted evidence and arguments to the U.S. Supreme Court that illegals are filling out federal voter registration forms — and are being added to the rolls.

The group's amicus brief was filed last week in a lawsuit brought by Kansas and Arizona against the Election Assistance Commission (EAC), P.J. Media reports. The organization is based in Alexandria, Va.

The two states are suing the federal agency because it has refused to add state-law instructions to the federal form. They contend that the registration form does not require filers to identify whether they are U.S. citizens or not.

Both states use the federal form, but each require proof of citizenship, according to the report. The federal agency has refused their requests to include that instruction on the form.

"The Constitution says that the states get to decide the qualifications for voters," attorney Joseph Vanderhulst said in the report. "In other words, the states get to decide who votes.

"Relying on this clear power, Kansas and Arizona are rightfully saying that a person is qualified to vote in their states if they provide some kind of proof of citizenship.

"But the EAC is saying that the Constitution gives them the power to regulate the 'time, place, and manner' of federal elections," Vanderhulst added. "In other words, that the federal government gets to decide how registration works."

He concluded that "the federal government, yet again, is stretching too far. The federal form has failed to keep noncitizens from registering to vote, on purpose or by accident.

"And by dominating the registration process, the EAC is preventing states from being able to do anything about it."
