Judge: Kansas cannot require citizenship proof from voters

WND –  June 21, 2018

A federal judge has struck down a Kansas law requiring voters to prove they are citizens, even after she admitted that “to register to vote, one must be a United States citizen.”

The decision comes from U.S. District Judge Julie Robinson, who boasts on her federal court profile of being a fourth-generation Kansan and “the first African American to the U.S. District Court for the District of Kansas.”

Robinson not only struck down the state’s legislatively approved requirement to provide proof of citizenship, she lashed out at Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who defended the law.

She ordered Kobach to take additional continuing education classes because she claimed he did not follow her instructions.
