Arizona | Prop 200 passed
Proposition 200 will require proof of citizenship when registering to vote and display of some type of identification when casting a ballot.

It also mandates that public employees verify the “immigration status” of applicants for “public benefits.” Workers who ignore the law would be subject to four month jail terms.
WAHOO!!! Yay!!! But now someone will take this to court to get an activist judge to negate the will and vote of the people.

Unfortunately this affects Americans seeking services funded by public money. A woman fleeing domestic violence (DV), who is a citizen and does not have the proper ID with her, could be denied entry into a DV shelter and its associated services. I agree that Immigration issues are not being addressed properly. It’s too bad that this proposition affects citizens as well.

Thanks for signing in,
Now you can comment. (Click here should you choose to sign out.)
As you post your comment, please mind our simple comment policy: we welcome all perspectives, but require that comments be both civil and respectful. We also ask that you avoid the extensive use of profanity, racist terms (neither of which we consider civil or respectful), and other boorish language.
We reserve the right to delete any comment, and to prohibit you from commenting on this site, if we feel you have broached this policy. As a courtesy, we will first send you an email noting a violation so you understand the boundaries. This will occur only once, however, and should we ban you from our comment forums we expect that ban to be permanent.
We also will frown upon those who suggest that we ban other individuals for voicing unpopular opinions, should those opinions be voiced in a civil and respectful manner. The point of our comment threads is to provide a forum for spirited though civil and respectful discourse … it is not to provide a forum in which everyone will agree with your point of view.
If you can live by these rules, welcome aboard. If not, then we’re sorry it didn’t work out, and thanks for visiting The Command Post.
