You know why SCOTUS has moved this way don’t you?! This is just a puzzle piece to the bigger picture taking place in the US. The DC destroyers are bent on passing ILLEGAL ALIEN amnesty by the 4th of July, how would it look if SCOTUS ruled the other way!?
More proof of how corrupt and lost this country has become that we can’t even have a law that requires people to prove they are citizens. As for that penalty by perjury clause, do you think an illegal cares about that?? They are in the country illegally, they already broke our laws by just being here! They couldn’t careless about that little penalty of perjury check box, probably have a big smile on their face when they check it off!

Arizona appealed that decision to the Supreme Court.
“Today’s decision sends a strong message that states cannot block their citizens from registering to vote by superimposing burdensome paperwork requirements on top of federal law,” said Nina Perales, vice president of litigation for the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund and lead counsel for the voters who challenged Proposition 200...more
