Anyone still think that Obama is all about securing borders and keeping safe the integrity of the American election system?
Not after his Department of Justice declared that the state of Georgia was not allowed to verify a voter’s citizenship through a verification process. What this means is that Georgia must halt citizenship checks. Thus, illegal aliens can now register to vote in Georgia.
According to Shannon McCaffrey of the Associated Press:
|A three-judge federal panel in October ordered the state to seek Justice Department preclearance for the checks under the Voting Rights Act of 1965, the same reason the federal agency must sign off on the new law that made Georgia only the second state after Arizona to require such proof. Georgia is one of several states that need federal approval before changing election rules because of a history of discriminatory Jim Crow-era voting practices.
Secretary of State Karen Handel blasted DOJ’s decision, saying it opens the floodgates for non-citizens to vote in the state.
“Clearly, politics took priority over common sense and good public policy,” said Handel, a Republican candidate for governor in 2010.

Should you be concerned about this? Yes, and here is why:
|Handel said that more than 2,100 people who attempted to register in Georgia still have not resolved questions regarding their citizenship. Her office’s inspector general is investigating more than 30 cases of non-citizens casting ballots in Georgia elections, including the case of a Henry County non-citizen who said she registered to vote and cast ballots in 2004 and 2006.
Handel said the checks were designed to follow federal guidelines to ensure the integrity of the vote and that those eligible are casting ballots.
Now, multiply that case by the thousands of illegals who could potentially register to vote in Georgia under the Obama administration’s directive.
And don’t think Obama doesn’t know about this. I’m sure he’s done the math more than once and he’s knows that he can solidify his power by legalizing million of illegals and getting them to vote in favor of the Democrats’ socialist programs.
After all, one of his biggest latino cheerleaders filed the original lawsuit to make this happen:
|“We are pleased with this decision,” said Elise Shore, Southeastern Regional Counsel of the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund. “It vindicates our filing of the lawsuit.”|
Yep. Pleased times 12 to 20 million illegals.
