DREAMing Voter ID and Presidential Evolution

In Articles on June 18, 2012 at 7:52 am

Voter ID requirements have already produced a large reaction both for and against the proposed laws. President Obama’s new immigration policy will likely stoke the fires of passion even more.

Between sanctuary cities, the Department of Justice’s lawsuit concerning SB 1070, and the president’s evolution” on immigration reform, voter validity measures are more important than ever moving forward.


Just fill in your information and just sign here. I’ll transfer your information myself and we’ll mail you a voter registration card.”

These noteworthy words above come on the heels of President Obama’s recently-announced (and oft-interrupted) plans to change the deportation policies. They were recently spoken by a genteel, non-threatening older woman with a clipboard on the south side of Chicago.

“If you just put in your information and your address, we’ll transfer your information to this other form and we’ll mail you your voting card for this year.”

In a sanctuary city such as Chicago, and coming right after the president’s announcement, this template for “change” is one that should give Americans pause – and validate concerns that some conservatives have in support of Voter ID laws.

It is impractical for the same set of progressives that commend the president’s move with illegal immigration on Friday and champion the continued practice of sanctuary city status around the nation – often in defiance of federal law.  We can’t ignore the heightening need to get a handle on voter validity issues as soon as possible.
