Skip to comments.AP NewsBreak: In victory for GOP, Florida wins access to Homeland Security list of noncitizens
Posted on 07/14/2012 10:20:05 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
The federal government has agreed to let Florida use a law enforcement database to challenge people's right to vote if they are suspected of not being U.S. citizens.
The agreement comes in a letter to Florida Gov. Rick Scott's administration that was obtained by The Associated Press.

The feds agreed with it. Now we’ll see how long it takes them to follow through. Probably won’t be able to get it all organized until, oh, the day after the election.
Holder is going to go off his nut when he hears about this.
Give it up Butch!
Wrong headline. This is a victory for patriots.
No, we don’t want to clear off dead people and non-citizens, just challenge their right to vote.
God the media in this country makes me sick.
You go Gov. Scott! I wonder if McCallum (who I voted for) would do the same thing?
It will never happen.
The dems will just use this as an excuse to start a controversy like 2000 if Odumba loses Floriduh.
Serious blow to Obamite voters
How is 0bama supposed to get reelected with all of these hurdles being placed in front of him???
Surely they have some contingency in mind to replace the illegal votes lost in Florida?
And how much time would there be to purge illegal votes once cast?
“......Now well see how long it takes them to follow through......”
Good point—I’m not holding my breath. Now it’s up to the various Florida authorities to IMMEDIATELY start sending the appropriate files to the Feds. The question is how long will the feds take to process them and return the results. It’s very clear that the Obama/Holder/Napolitano regime have inserted compliant members of their criminal enterprise throughout critical spots in the federal government.
Right. Now that Napolitano and her little sisterz have redacted any useful information.
I don’t trust anything about Obamugabe or his team.
“They say purges less than four months before the election might leave insufficient time to correct mistakes.”
We can’t trust a Federal Government list of names but when it comes to healthcare............?
Recent headlines show it—call it a soft judicial rebellion against an out of control black robed tyrant.
What’s stopping Holder from purging the names of illegals from his personal Democrat voter fraud database from the Homeland Security database before granting access?
Now for all the other states to follow in Florida’s foot steps ASAP.
With that one lame excuse, those concerned with so-called "voting rights" have inadvertently put themselves on record for supporting purges. Now, it looks like all that's left is determining the appropriate timeframe for doing them. See what happens when one's "logic" collides with one's disingenuous supposed good intentions?
If true it’ll sure cut down the number of Dem voters.
Why is this a victory for the GOP. It is a victory for all actual citizens.
“And how much time would there be to purge illegal votes once cast?”
Once a vote is cast there is no way to remove an illegal vote.
Don’t sit there and wait for it. Send a rep to DC with a video camera to pick it up.
Wasn’t there a story in the last few weeks about someone being on the illegals list incorrectly?
Maybe, but if legitimate, it shouldn't be too hard to prove that you are not an illegal.
The person from the story was put in jail for several months, but I don’t remember the details or what list was wrong. I am waiting for the Feds to argue that they can’t use the list because the list has legal citizens on it inadvertently.
This is what happens when you stand up to a bully. Gov. Scott had challenged the regime and they backed down.
Way to go. And let that be a lesson to all the weak-kneed PUBs out there. Jesus said to turn the other cheek, He did NOT say to stand there and let yourself be slapped silly.
Look for the DOJ to dump thousands of 70 year old retirees with hip replacements and eating dogfood on the lists they turn over. Just for chaos purposes come November results.
The only area where there's a legal dispute concerns folks who've moved ~ and in some places they prosecute you for keeping a registration where you used to reside (if you run for public office).
