Skip to comments.Citizenship and Voter I.D. Laws Could Keep 10 Million Latinos From Voting
Posted on 10/03/2012 9:05:46 AM PDT by yoe
Latinos in the U.S. comprise more than 10% of the nations eligible voters and approximately 8% of its registered voters, but according to a new report, demands for proof of citizenship and photo identification requirements in several states could prevent at least 10 million Latino citizens from voting.
Like African Americans, Latinos have experienced decreased access and correspondingly lower levels of voter registration and participation than non-Hispanic whites, said the report titled ( Segregating American Citizenship: Latino Voter Disenfranchisement in 2012.) The report was released Monday by the civil rights organization Advancement Project.
The report found 23 states have legal barriers that can keep eligible Latino voters from the voting boothand In many states, the number of eligible Latino citizens that could be affected by these barriers exceeds the margin of victory of the 2008 presidential election.

It won’t stop them if they are citizens with proper ID.
Assuming that those 10 million are ILLEGAL ALIENS, what’s the problems, dork libs???
Would those 10 million happen to be illegal?
The DNC is determined to defend vote fraud at all costs.
So what’s the goal? Just to get as many votes as possible regardless of elgibility? I know, I know, yes that’s the Dem’s goal but these news agencies should ask themselves what they’re reporting. That it might be inconvenient? That illegals should be allowed to invade our polls with the same numbers they invade our country?
And the bigger question any jounalist should answer is whether or not they’re actually reporting news or just furthering an agenda.
They can still vote in Mexico though, right?
Another junk story setting up for the “Romney is an illegitimate president” story. Notice the number pulled out thin air is is 10 million, a number higher than the victory margin in 2008. “We wuz wobbed... if our voters were not disenfranchised, we would have won.”
IF they are citizens, then citizenship requirements are no impediment. And I don’t know why this writer is so racist that he assumes hispanics are incapable of getting a valid id.
I read one place that there are 24 million hispanics who are eligible to vote, but only 12 million will register.
Now this guy says 10 million of them won’t actually vote because of voter ID? Or is he saying that they won’t bother to register? But they already haven’t bothered to register, before we put voter ID rules in place.
It wont stop them if they are citizens with proper ID.
That’s just it. These ass-clowns WANT illegal non-US citizens to have every right to vote as you or I.
The guy is operating under two bizarre ideas ~ one is that Latinos all look alike so they can never get IDs that make them look distinct from all the other Latinos, or they just don’t take good photos.
It looks like by far the biggest problem is an unwillingness to register and vote rather than some problem with IDs.
actually, hundreds of Latinos are being kept from voting in our election if you consider the ones living in other countries that we are so unfairly discriminating against.
So, why does the gummint think that “Latinos” are dumber than Italian, Russian, French Canadian, Polish, Muldovan, Ukranian, German, and a host of other non-English speaking immigrants?
This story is MEANINGLESS except when viewed in this context: It is designed to inflame Latino voters against Republicans.
It cantains no facts or any other useful information.
It is propaganfa only.
Univision is saying Latino’s are too stupid, lazy, and/or incompetent to board a commercial airliner.
Jorge, you ignorant puta ....
Cabron, es muy facil: If people 1. from Hispanola 2. who speak Latin, are American citizens and want to take the trouble to vote, they can vote. So go peddle your papers you race-baiting maricon.
Go get your shine box, you muck-raking ... grumble, grumble grumble
I’m so sick of this shite. But think how bad it would be if Obama had not brought us all together with his racial healing.
C’mon Willard, butter his necktie tonight!
Mean spirited right wingers want to discriminate against non-citizens by not allowing them to vote!!!!!
It’s racism I tell you!!!!!
What? There’re 10 million non-citizen Latinos here among us?
A shameless two-fer.
I should certainly hope they're prevented from voting!
I just have to laugh at the ridiculous number; it is at least twice that many.
Not a citizen? You're not entitled to vote.
Not a legal resident? You're not entitled to vote.
That is not going to change any time soon.
Check with Univision, or The Fox Illegals Channel. See how many illegal, non-citizen Americans in Mexico are prohibited from voting in Mexico.
If that Mexican law is broken, the perp first has to do mandatory jail time. Then he's deported permanently.
Why aren’t they complaining about voter registration laws? Those could potentially prevent hundreds of millions of people from getting to vote if they don’t obey the law.
From the report linked in the story.
READ THE REPORT.
Most militant illegal aliens lie. 24/7. About everything.
I see it and hear it three times a week without fail.
I am fortunate to be perfectly fluent in both English and Spanish. My entire life. My first grades in school were totally bilingual. I understand Spanish perfectly. My last exposure to fraud was walking through a "student lounge" in a school which is mostly illegal aliens and hearing two people walking by and one of them was telling the other, "I just told them that I was from (name of city) so they would allow me access to the classes."
What could possibly cause any rational person to think that if they lie about trivial things, that they won't lie about rights and privileges reserved for citizens?
Just as they rightfully do in Mexico!
and let’s be clear, latinos are not white, they are latinos. time to end the stupid pc charade of lumping them into the white category when they are not. it’s as dumb as saying blacks are whites because some of them have very light compexions.
Fixed it for you.
Citizens? I call BS
