North Carolina residents will be able to vote without an identity verification because it discriminates against the black population
Yesterday, the North Carolina Court of Appeals rejected the law on the need to present ID during elections. The court found in this law prejudice and discrimination of the African American population, since many of them are undocumented.
In the ruling, the judges indicated that this initiative could exclude black voters from voting.
“Such a choice speaks more of an intention to target African-American voters rather than a desire to comply with the newly created Amendment in a fair and balanced manner,” stated in the decree.
The Republican government of several other states, in turn, approved a law that obliges citizens wishing to vote to present an identity card to stop attempts to vote fraud.
Critics of the blocked bill argue that fraud with votes at polling stations is virtually non-existent.
“Extensive research reveals that fraud is very rare (and) voter impersonation is virtually nonexistent,” the Brennan Center for Justice, which bills itself as a nonpartisan law and policy institute, says in its ongoing voter fraud project, according to Reuters.
According to the American Immigration Council data as of 2017, “Over 200,000 U.S. citizens in North Carolina live with at least one family member who is undocumented”.
“350,000 undocumented immigrants comprised 43 percent of the immigrant population and 3.4 percent of the total state population in 2014”.
“429,169 people in North Carolina, including 186,930 born in the United States, lived with at least one undocumented family member between 2010 and 2014”.
“During the same period, 1 in 15 children in the state was a U.S. citizen child living with at least one undocumented family member (170,487 children in total)”.
As can be seen from this study, permission to vote without an identity confirmation gives a significant advantage in the election race to those who are more loyal to illegal immigrants, and not just to the black population.
