  • Voter identification law from 2004 struck down

    SAN FRANCISCO - The U.S. Court of Appeals, 9th Circuit, has struck down the law requiring Arizona voters to present proof of citizenship to vote. Prop. 200, approved by Arizona voters in 2004, was found to violate federal law - the majority opinion was that the National Voter Registration Act precludes states from imposing additional requirements.

    On Friday it was reported that the Yuma Recorder’s office was checking the 3,000 last minute voter registration forms turned in by the far left Mi Familia Vota organization. The recorder’s office found that already more than 65% of the registrations were invalid due to the registrant not being a citizen, wrong/invalid address, false signature, etc. Mi Familia Vota is a SEIU sub-organization. It is just as “non-partisan” as ACORN was before documented fraudulent behaviors finally killed it.Yuma County is located in Arizona’s 7th District. Currently, far left Arizona boycotter Rep.

    Conservatives in Arizona can have a little more hope now that their views will begin to be represented in the Arizona Republican Party. The AZ GOP State Convention was held today and, after a contentious and close race for the chairmanship, conservative Republican Randy Pullen won by a slim margin of 408 to 404. His opponent, Lisa James, was hand-picked by Sen. John McCain and represented the moderate, establishment Republican wing of the state party. Although she did pick up a handful of conservative supporters, for the most part her supporters were the liberals, moderates, and RINOs of the party....

    Over 190,000 Arizonans petitioned to put Prop. 200 on the ballot. As it simply required proof of citizenship before receiving the benefits and privileges of citizenship, who could oppose it? Answer: the entire GOP congressional delegation, led by Sen. John McCain. For conservatives, the stakes could not be higher. For on the great controversies, McCain has sided as often with the Democrats and the Big Media that pay him court as with conservatives. Where President Bush has been bravest, on taxes and judges, McCain has been his nemesis. Not only did McCain vote against the Bush tax cuts twice, he...

    A federal court upholds Arizona's voter I.D. law. The Phoenix judge found that citizenship counts when determining who has the right to vote, and that Arizona's voter-approved law does not conflict with federal law. "They have no conflict of us requesting that people show citizenship when they register to vote nor any conflict when we ask for ID at the polls," Brewer said. Secretary of State Jan Brewer said more than 99 percent of voters had no problem complying with the new law in the 2006 election. Prop. 200's requirements were enacted by voters in 2004.

    Contrary to conventional wisdom, minorities and the poor overwhelmingly favor a get tough approach on illegal immigration - as they proved just two years ago by supporting Arizona's Proposition 200 in a landslide. As the 2004 election approached, the immigration crackdown, which proposed denying state services to anyone who couldn't prove they were in the country legally, was decried by critics as "draconian" and "xenophobic." The proposal was trashed by Arizona's business community. All the state's big newspapers came out against it. Governor Janet Napolitano, Sen. John McCain and Sen. Jon Kyl echoed their opposition. The Chamber of Commerce and...

    PHOENIX State lawmakers are slowly moving to put a series of controversial and potentially ethnically divisive measures on the November ballot. The latest effort got a boost this week when the House of Representatives voted 34-22 to ask voters to once again declare English the state's official language. That vote came despite protests from foes who said the proposed constitutional amendment reflected everything from an anti-immigrant attitude to the fear of the currently Anglo majority of the demographic changes occurring in Arizona. And Rep. David Bradley, D-Tucson, even compared this move to promote what he described as...

    Those with older driver's licenses don't meet citizenship guidelines ... PHOENIX - A voter-approved proposition passed last year to prevent noncitizens from voting may also prevent Arizonans with older driver's licenses from voting as well. Under Proposition 200, anyone registering to vote must provide proof of citizenship. The most popular form is usually an Arizona driver's license issued after Oct. 1, 1996, when the state began demanding evidence of legal U.S. residency to get a license. But according to a report in The Arizona Republic, one in 10 Arizona motorists - more than 400,000 - currently hold licenses issued before...

    PHOENIX (AP) - A federal appeals court refused Tuesday to block part of an Arizona law that denies some public benefits to illegal immigrants, saying the plaintiffs had no right to sue. The voter-approved law appeared on Arizona's November election ballot. The portion at issue bars illegal immigrants from getting certain public benefits and makes it a crime for public employees to fail to report undocumented immigrants who seek the benefits. A separate provision, unaffected by the court challenge, requires people to show proof of citizenship when registering to vote. The plaintiffs had asked the 9th U.S. Circuit Court to...

    Despite voter approval of Prop 200, a measure aimed at illegal immigrants, last November, Arizona Governor Janice Napolitburo says she will continue her fight against requiring voters to show identification documents in order to be allowed to cast ballots. "ID requirements make people prove they are citizens and that they reside in the jurisdiction in which they are attempting to vote. This discriminates against persons who aren't citizens or don't live within the jurisdiction. Voting is a human right that should not be subject to such narrow and parochial restrictions," said Napolitburo in a statement released by her office.

Millions of currently resident illegal aliens would be permitted to buy guestworker status for a fee of $1,000. After the first three year term they could apply for three year extensions (for another $1000), and in the meantime, apply for green cards. After six years they would be eligible for permanent residency, which...

Polls show huge majorities of both Republicans and Democrats oppose illegal immigration -- and are frustrated that President Bush won't do a thing to stop it. But this issue does not belong to the right. Or it shouldn't. Illegal immigration hurts most liberal causes. It depresses wages, crushes unions and kills all hope...

    PHOENIX - Gov. Janet Napolitano said Friday she might veto the state's entire $8.2 billion budget over a dispute with the Republican-controlled Legislature on funding to teach English. A veto would force the Legislature, which adjourned about 1:15 Friday morning after 123 days, to return in a special session. Napolitano said the budget deal negotiated with the GOP leadership a week earlier included an "understanding" that Republicans "would sit down and negotiate a Flores resolution with the Democrats." That refers to a 14-year-old lawsuit in which a federal judge ruled Arizona was not meeting its legal obligation to provide adequate...

Registrar of Voters Chris Roads said that over the last two weeks, the county has rejected 423 of the 712 registration forms it has received from prospective new voters, 59% of them. "We rejected none during the same period last year," when six times as many people were registering because of the presidential election, Roads said.

    Stricter immigration laws now on the books in Arizona that require elections officials to check for proof of citizenship have uncovered thousands of new registrants who don't qualify to vote. According to the Arizona Daily Star, state election officials credit the citizenship requirement contained in Proposition 200, the illegal-immigration initiative passed last November, for screening out the illegal voters. In Arizona's Prima County alone, elections officials have rejected 59 percent of all applicants in the last two weeks - or 423 of the 712 new registrants. "We rejected none during the same period last year," when six times as many...

    Pima County turned down 59 percent in last 2 weeks By C.J.

"We rejected none during the same period last year," when six times as many people were registering because of the presidential election, Roads said. "There was nothing in the law that required...

    FAIR Press Release via email | Sandra Gunn
    (Washington, D.C. - April 8, 2005) Governor Janet Napolitano, a staunch opponent of last year's ballot initiative known as Proposition 200, is apparently not one to accept defeat -- or the will of the people of Arizona easily. Over objections of many political leaders of both parties, the voters overwhelmingly approved Prop. 200 denying illegal aliens access to all but required government services and requiring proof of citizenship to register to vote and identification at polling places. No sooner than voters overwhelmingly approved Prop. 200, the governor and attorney general threw up roadblocks to implementing the ballot measure. Attorney General...

    State Capitol | 04/07/05 | me
    Today was a busy day. SB206 (proof of citizenship for welfare) by Jim Holt was before the State Agency and Government Affairs Committee at the Arkansas State Capitol. Tuesday, only two of the committee members showed up, which delayed any vote. Today, they were all there for the morning session (after some pressure from conservative activist). After Holt made beginning statements, Sen. Wilkins began whining at Holt about a pamphlet and it's "hatred" and "bigotry" how globalist we need to be and how there was a bunch of demagogery blah blah blah. It turns out Holt never passed out the...
  • Not so Fast to Praise AZ Governor Napolitano!!!

    She is being praised by "conservatives" for telling Mexican officials that she does not have time to meet with them with regard to illegal immigration. Instead, Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon and Atty. General Terry Goddard are meeting with these officials. Did anyone ever stop to think that maybe she is doing this as an election ploy? That she has given the task to Terry Goddard and Phil Gordon so she doesn't get the blame? Think long and hard before praising this governor on the illegal issue or any other issue for that matter.

    The Denver Post ^ | Feb. 9, 2005 | Al Knight
    Not so many years ago, immigration - especially illegal immigration - was one of those topics best discussed in lowered tones and in small settings. Time passed and suddenly there are signs all over the place that immigration has become one of the nation's most fashionable topics. For example, last Sunday's Denver Post contained an article detailing Colorado Congressman Tom Tancredo's plans to keep the issue front and center even if it means he will have to mount a quixotic campaign for president. Tancredo's determination to go on the offensive is best understood as part of a larger political...

    PHOENIX (AP) -- A new law requiring voters to provide identification when casting ballots won't apply to the first elections since its approval because Arizona can't guarantee the proposed rules won't keep minorities from voting, said state Attorney General Terry Goddard.

    The U.S. Department of Justice has approved the voting portion of Prop. 200, which now puts the burden on counties to set up means to verify that new voters are indeed citizens of the United States. The counties are now working very hard to make sure they have systems in place, Secretary of State Jan Brewer said the week of Jan. 24. The Justice Department reviews any changes to Arizonas elections under authority of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which found several states, including Arizona, had a history of denying voting rights to members of minority groups. Prop....

    MEXICO CITY - Mexico may turn to international courts in an effort to block a new Arizona law limiting services to illegal immigrants, Foreign Secretary Luis Ernesto Derbez said Wednesday. He said in a radio interview that Mexico might take such a step after it has exhausted all possibilities under U.S. law to halt Proposition 200. "We are seeking all the legal opportunities that exist, first using the legal capacities of the United States itself and ... if that does not work, bringing it to international tribunals," Derbez said. advertisement He did not specify to which international bodies Mexico could...
