On Friday, August 6, thanks to a lawsuit filed by the ACLU, a federal judge unsealed two documents relating to Kris Kobachâ€™s proposed amendments to the National Voter Registration Act (a.k.a. the â€œmotor-voter law”).
The first document was a memo that Kobach brought to a meeting with President-elect Trump in November 2016, which was partially exposed during a photo op and revealed that Kobach wants to “stop aliens from voting” by drafting amendments to the National Voter Registration Act “to promote proof of citizenship requirements.” The second unsealed document offers more insight into precisely how Kobach intends to do this.
As we’ve previously reported, the requirement to prove citizenship to vote already stopped 36,000 Kansas students from voting because they didnâ€™t have their passport or original birth certificate. Not one was busted as an alien, but all were busted as likely Democrats.
