The state of Florida will be responding to the claims made by the Department of Justice, stating that the states effort to seek out and purge non-citizens from its voter rolls is breaking at least two voting laws.
Florida is looking for clarification if any federal laws are being violated in their effort to purge their voting rolls.
“Our letter will address the issues raised by DOJ while emphasizing the importance of having accurate voter rolls,” Chris Cate, a spokesman for Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner, told the Miami Herald.
Florida has been facing backlash from the DOJ since they started their effort. And to know surprise.
The department that claims to know something about ‘Justice’ is saying that illegal aliens, non-citizens that are living illegally in the U.S.A., should still have the right to vote. The terms illegal alien and non-citizen must mean nothing to them.
We will see where the DOJ will go after the state responds to their demands. They will certainly not comply, but fight it. So we might see a bigger fight down the road.
