Just to do it anyways is a very serious breach of federal law.
    The Sec of State of Florida has been asking for a noncitizenship list from DHS for 9 months. The reason why the deadline is closing in is because DHS and DOJ have been dragging their feet to provide information so Florida can comply with its own law.

    Ignored by Obama DHS: Florida's Request for Citizenship Database to Review Voting Lists | Sunshine State News

    Secretary of State Ken Detzner wrote again to the Department of Homeland Security on Thursday in an attempt to obtain what would be more updated citizenship information than the state currently has. Detzner is trying to remove noncitizens from the list of registered voters.

    “Federal law expressly requires your agency to respond to state inquiries to verify or ascertain the citizenship or immigration status of any individual within its jurisdiction for any purpose authorized by law,” Detzner wrote to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.

    “Yet, after nine months of requests, we have not been granted access to that information or any other available DHS database.”
    This isnt some new development, Florida has been working on this for months.

    Well now you see why they don't want to give it to them, right? Because DHS knew they were going to use it for an election fraud scheme, as in fact they are doing now.

    They are no better than the worst ACORN folk.

    LOL...."Scott's real agenda"? What the hell is that CT? either you think you have some insight into the personal thoughts of Rick Scott, or you are so full of yourself that you believe your opinion the only one worth of consideration...Which is it?

    Oh bull! I am so sick and GD tired of this race card BS! People that shouldn't vote, should NOT be allowed to vote, regardless of what group you think they fall into.

    Ugh. Apparently you don't understand. Let me go over it again.

    The problem isn't removing undocumented immigrants from the rosters. That's fine. It's kind of pointless given that all studies ever done have shown that virtually no undocumented immigrants vote, but whatever.

    The problem is that they are excluding people based on extremely suspect criteria. For example, just having the same name as an undocumented immigrant. "Jose Garcia" or whatever. Guess what, there are hundreds of Jose Garcias in Florida. They will all be excluded if there is one Jose Garcia that is know to be an undocumented immigrant. Get it?

    They've been busted for doing it several times now. Most notably in 2000 when they excluded tens of thousands of legal minority voters just because they had the same name as an ex felon in the state. They were sued of course and had to undo it, but not until after the election. Same deal.
