obama's DOJ to Florida: Stop Removing Non-Citizens from Voter RollsThe Department of Justice has ordered the State of Florida to stop removing non-citizens from its voter rolls, the Miami Herald reports.
The DOJ sent a letter to Florida officials Thursday night expressing
concern the state's clean up was violating the 1965 Voting Rights Act,
which protects minorities, and the 1993 National Voter Registration Act,
which governs voter purges.
So far, Florida has flagged 2,700 potential noncitizen voters and
sent the list to county elections supervisors, who have found the data
and methodology to be flawed and problematic. The list of potential
noncitizen voters – many of whom have turned out to be lawful citizens
and voters – disproportionately hits minorities, especially Hispanics.
The DOJ has given Florida until Wednesday to submit a plan in
accordance with section 5 of the Voting Rights Act, which dictates the
DOJ must approve any changes to the state's voting system.
Florida is deciding whether to fight the DOJ on its interpretation of
the law. The state claims they were "stonewalled" for nine months by
the administration and specifically names the Department of Homeland
Security as being uncooperative. The DHS has data on citizenship but
refuses to share that database information with Florida. As a result,
the state has tried to make these determinations based on its own
A full response from the state is expected soon.
