Kansas is working to bring back its voter ID law.
On March 19, 2019, Kansas’s solicitor general Toby Crouse requested that a federal appeals court reinstate the state’s law mandating that people provide information demonstrating that they are American citizens before registering to vote.
The original law was introduced in an effort to combat the rise in non-citizens voting in elections. This voter ID law was on the books between 2013 and 2016 but was ultimately overturned by a lower court due to pressure from state attorneys and plaintiffs.
This law met its demise in a hearing before a three-judge panel in the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Salt Lake City. Judge Jerome Holmes cited claims that the law prevented more than 30,000 people from registering to vote despite all of them being citizens. As a result, Kansas’s voter ID law was blocked for the time being.
Kansas state officials claimed that problems with the enforcement of Kansas’s voter ID law in the three years it was in effect were fixable. In 2018, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach defended Kansas’s voter ID law in court. Despite his efforts to resurrect voter ID in Kansas, Kobach was derailed by Judge Julie Robinson in a ruling that halted the enforcement of the state’s voter ID law.
Kansas’s voter registration law required that prospective voters provide documents like a driver’s license, birth certificate, U.S. passport or naturalization papers before registering to vote. According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, Kansas’s law took further steps than the 35 other states with voter ID. In sum, this current case has tremendous national implications as far as ID laws are concerned.
Former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach made it a point during his time in office to champion voter ID. For his efforts in combatting voter fraud, President Trump appointed Kobach as the head of the Voter Fraud Commission which was disbanded in 2018.
Voter ID laws are some of the more sensible measures that states can take to combat the negative effects of mass migration. Staving off mass migration requires a multi-pronged approach at both the state and federal level.
Even though Trump has faced many roadblocks at the federal level, activists cannot afford to throw in the towel. The states are still valid options for combatting mass migration. The stakes are too high at this point to not fight back against mass migration, lest we want European-style migrant ghettoes popping up throughout America and an accelerated collapse of America’s already bloated welfare state.
Let’s hope the courts come to their senses and recognize the validity of voter ID laws.

Will Italy Exit the EU Because of its Lackluster Response to the Wuhan Flu?
Affar Italiani reports that leader of the Italian political party League and former Italian Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini recently announced a possible withdrawal of Italy from the European Union due to its sluggish response to the Wuhan Virus.
“This is crazy. Europe needs another fifteen days to decide what to do, whether to help, whom and how. In the midst of an emergency when people die, now from pneumonia, tomorrow, possibly from poverty,” the politician stated
Salvini cited Italy’s confrontation with the EU over aid to fight against the Wuhan virus and the refusal of Germany and other Northern European countries to help Italy as reasons for the southern European country leaving the EU and the eurozone.
“This is a den of snakes and jackals. First we defeat the virus, then remember Europe. And, if necessary, we say goodbye. Without even thanking,” the former Minister of Internal Affairs asserted.
The EU used to serve a purpose as a common market for European members states and a cohesive political unit the prevented fratricidal wars between European states.
It could also serve as a civilizational defense bloc against the potential hordes of African and Islamic migrants that will continue coming into the region thanks to its lax border policies and the demographic realities in these regions — booming populations which many of these Third World countries cannot accommodate.
Salvini has every reason to be concerned.
If the EU cannot fulfill the most basic of government functions — protecting its members — Italy should leave and craft its own strategic regional bloc with countries that are serious about protecting their national sovereignty.
