Supreme Court takes on Arizona law that discourages illegal immigrants from voting

Problem is significant

In theory. the Obama administration is supposed to look out for the welfare of United States citizens. The watchword here is “theory.” It seems the Obama administration is much more concerned with the “rights” of illegal immigrants to vote in U.S. elections than protecting the rights of U.S. citizens [“Arizona’s voter-registration hurdle to get high-court review this week,” page one, March 18].

Could it be that the Democrats assume a voter percentage of around 90 percent in the illegal voting blocks? Rather than fixing the situation, the Obama administration seems bent on promulgating it.

Statistics are quoted where the problem of illegal voting is minuscule. In Colorado, only 141 or Florida only 207 illegal immigrants were found voting. Does anyone remember Rossi vs. Gregoire in 2004? Gregoire “won” by 133 votes after two “recounts.” I wonder how many illegal immigrants voted in that election?

Don’t think this is a small problem and doesn’t matter, people. Because it does.
