    Appeals Court Blocks Proof-of-Citizenship Voting Requirement

    By: By SAM HANANEL

    A federal appeals court has blocked Kansas, Georgia and Alabama from requiring residents to prove they are U.S. citizens when registering to vote using a national form.

    The 2-1 ruling late Friday is a victory for voting rights groups who sued a U.S. election official after he changed proof-of-citizenship requirements on the federal registration form at the behest of the three states.

    Other states only require people registering to vote to swear they are citizens, not show documentary proof.

    A federal judge in July refused to block the requirement while the case was being decided.

    The League of Women Voters and civil rights groups argued that the requirements could lead to the "mass disenfranchisement" of thousands of potential voters many of them poor, African-American and living in rural areas.

    I don't believe it was poor African-Americans in rural areas they were worried about.

    African Americans are actually very responsible when it comes to paperwork and much of the paperwork poor Americans have to produce is a birth certificate or affidavit of some sort to apply for benefits from Medicaid to Social Security, probably food stamps as well, and of course a birth certificate is required to go to school to prove your age. African Americans are as prepared and capable of doing this as any poor American, whether they live in a city or a rural area.

    I personally find this a degrading insult to black citizens of the United States.

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.
