For over nine months the State of Florida has sought access to the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE)
database maintained by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in an effort to verify eligible voters and clean up the voter rolls of ineligible voters.........Detzner’s letter continues “By denying Florida access to the SAVE database, DHS appears to have violated federal law, which provides that states may use the SAVE database for any legal purpose such as… voter registration,” and that “DHS shall respond to an inquiry by a State… government agency… seeking to verify or ascertain the citizenship or immigration status of any individual within the jurisdiction of the agency for any purpose authorized by law, by providing the requested verification or status information.” 76 Fed. Reg. 58525, 58527 (Sept. 21, 2011); 7 U.S.C. 1373(d).
