Arizona’s citizenship voting law will help protect their elections, regardless of what its critics say. We must pray for its protection.

From Idaho Capital Sun. The U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division announced Tuesday that it has sued Arizona over a law signed by the state’s Republican governor in March that requires people registering to vote prove their citizenship to participate in a presidential election or to vote by mail in any federal election.

Republican proponents of the law, HB 2492, claim that requiring voters to provide a documentary proof of citizenship, like a birth certificate or passport, helps prevent voter fraud. But voting rights advocates say that non-citizen voting is extremely rare, and the law will disenfranchise voters who will have to jump through additional hurdles to be eligible to vote.

“HB 2492’s onerous documentary proof of citizenship requirement for certain federal elections constitutes a textbook violation of the National Voter Registration Act,” in addition to the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Assistant Attorney General Kristen Clarke said in a press call Tuesday….

Surveys show that between 5 and 7 percent of Americans lack one of the documents required under the law to prove their citizenship. People who are more likely to be born outside a hospital, like Native Americans, are also less likely to have access to the necessary documents.

Lawyers for the Arizona Legislature have said that the new law is unconstitutional given how it affects federal elections and is in direct violation of the Supreme Court’s 2013 opinion. By bringing the law back this year, Arizona was setting itself up for a legal challenge likely to end up before the now more conservative U.S. Supreme Court….

Arizona is the only state that requires voters to provide documentary proof of citizenship to register to vote….

Since the 2020 election, Republican states have enacted dozens of restrictive voting laws that target who can register and cast a ballot. Clarke said Tuesday that the DOJ is determined to continue fighting unconstitutional voting laws.

“This lawsuit reflects our deep commitment to using every available tool to protect every American’s right to vote and to ensure their voices are heard in our democracy,” she said.

Father, I concur in asking you to protect Arizona for taking a stand against election fraud. I pray that other states will follow suit. Please bring to naught those who may be trying rig the upcoming election. Openly expose them. I thank you Father. In Jesus name, amen.

Can we sue the DOJ for a dereliction of their duty? They have stood against the Constitution and against Americans that don’t stand with the liars and cheaters that are in power! FATHER GOD please take action against every leg of our government that has stood against our Constitution and we the people! FATHER GOD we have no might against these evil workers but YOU do! Please send strong correction to these people. Please remove them from office suddenly in such a way that they will know YOU did it! In JESUS MIGHTY NAME! Amen!
