“The Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) has filed a friend-of-the-court brief in Kobach v. U.S. Election Assistance Commission, a case currently pending approval for a hearing before the Supreme Court. (Civil Action No. 14-1164).,” notes a press release issued today.
“IRLI’s brief is in support of the petitioners, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach and Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett, who seek to appeal a ruling by the Tenth Circuit affirming the Election Assistance Commission (EAC)’s decision to refuse to include the states’ proof-of-citizenship voter registration instructions on the National Mail Voter Registration Form. The states’ lawfully enacted statutes were designed to ensure that only eligible U.S. citizen voters can decide elections as is mandated under the federal National Voter Registration Act.”
