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.

Did Bernie Sanders Just Endorse a Neocon Regime Change Foreign Policy?
Is Bernie Sanders the anti-war candidate that many non-interventionists are making him out to be?
Journalists Jacob Crosse and Barry Grey presented some interesting observations about Sanders’ foreign policy views.
Sanders criticized the assassination of Iranian General Qassem Suleimani in January and also stressed his opposition to the 2003 invasion of Iraq.
During the Iowa presidential debate, Sanders loudly boasted, “I not only voted against that war, I helped lead the effort against that war.”
However, Sanders changed his tune when chatting with the New York Times.
The answers the Sanders campaign gave the Times showed its flexibility when it comes to foreign policy.
In other words, the Sanders campaign signaled to the military and intelligence apparatus that Sanders won’t present a threat to their interests and may actually carry out their interventionist agenda.
One question in the survey that the Times sent the Sanders campaign stuck out above the rest.
The third survey question asked, “Would you consider military force to pre-empt an Iranian or North Korean nuclear or missile test?”
The Sanders campaign responded, “Yes.”
Based on this response, Sanders’ is signaling that he’s willing to continue Bush-era policies of “preemptive war.”
Like Obama, Sanders’ opposition to the Iraq War was a matter of politics rather than a principled opposition to regime change wars.
His campaign was also asked, “Would you consider military force for a humanitarian intervention?”
Sanders responded, “Yes.”
Some of the wars that the U.S. carried out in the name of “human rights” have been the Bosnian war and the bombing of Serbia in the 1990s along with the aerial campaign against Libya in 2011 and the Civil War launched in Syria.
All in all, Sanders’ pro-peace/non-interventionist image is at best window dressing.
Under a Sanders presidency, the interventionist status quo will likely stay in place.
