    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. Raul Grijalva is caught in a tight race with...

    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....
  • McCain Stomps on Constitution

    02/02/2008 2:20:04 PM PST · by truthfinder9 · 18 replies · 131+ views
    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.

    Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., has a simple answer to the people who say its not possible to deport nearly twenty million illegal aliens as a means of resolving the immigration problem: Yes, you can! As one of four speakers at Accuracy in Academia's Conservative University forum on immigration, Tancredo spoke about the challenges and political implications associated with addressing the hot topic of immigration reform. Having the role of Chairman of the bipartisan House Immigration Reform Caucus provides him with the status as a political expert on the subject. Speaking to the difficulties of establishing immigration reform laws, Rep. Tancredo...

    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 - Arizonans who show up at the polls without some form of acceptable identification will be denied a ballot, perhaps as soon as local elections this November. On Friday, Secretary of State Jan Brewer revealed her proposal for procedures election workers will have to follow to determine who gets to vote. Brewer said the plan complies with the requirement of Proposition 200, approved by voters in November, which mandates ID both to register and vote.

The procedures set out the forms of identification that can be used when seeking a ballot. "These regulations will ensure that our elections are clean and...

  • U.S. court won't block Ariz. immigrant law that denies some public benefits to illegal immigrants

    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...

    SUN CITY WEST - Invoking the image of the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, the newest candidate for governor promised Tuesday to crack down on illegal immigration. Republican Don Goldwater told an audience of about 50 people here the 9/11 attack "was a direct result of our unofficial open border policy." Turning his attention closer to home, Goldwater made it clear he thinks Democratic Gov. Janet Napolitano, who was elected in 2002, bears responsibility for other effects of illegal immigration, ranging from increased crime and pollution of the desert to lost jobs for U.S. residents. Goldwater,...

    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.
