Supreme Court upholds Indiana Voter I.D. Law

Breaking legal news from the Supreme Court.

In a 6-3 vote, the United States Supreme Court upheld the Indiana Voter I.D. Law in a decision that may have a major impact on the upcoming 2008 Election.

Justice John Paul Stevens wrote the majority opinion which reaffirms the state rights to insure that elections are fair and conducted with the utmost integrity.

Civil libertarians argued that asking for I.D. is an infringement on the rights of citizens to cast votes in elections.

Close to 20 states have some sort of voter I.D. laws.

Speculation is that one of the ramifications of this decision, will be more states requiring I.D. to cast ballots in the upcoming 2008 Presidential Election.

Imagine that! Actually having to identify yourself before voting! Gee, I wonder why Tony Villar might be against such a law.

hmmm...let me guess. If California tries to pass this law, I can tell you with 100 % absolute certainty, that the illegal alien supporting mexican caucus will be opposed to this. What does this tell you? It tells you that illegals are voting in our elections, right now.

If illegal aliens can get the Medi-cal that should be extended to our LEGAL citizens/registered aliens, then you know that they are standing in line with the person that has the LEGAL right to be voting.. DUHHH !!!!!

Villar groupies love to say "show me the proof that illegals vote in LA"

Bullshit! Here, the burden is on YOU to prove they are NOT voting. YOU decided we need a Sanctuary City.

You got that right....Antonio will never be elected if illegals have to show proof. Hell everyone on the Eastside know that's how he got elected. There are stories of tons of polls where the legal registered voters didn't show up and the illegals used their names to do it for them. Antonio thinks people are stupid but he's the stupid one. All media outlets have reported this is the worst shape Los Angeles has been in its history = Antonio the worst Mayor in the history of LA. The Cholo Mayor is already campaigning

I'll show you the proof. I would go into a district, visit 3 different polling places and vote with an undercover camera. People do it and I know this for a fact about one certain council district, so why not others. Become a poll watcher, go in and see who hasn't voted at 10 til 8 and have them vote. Have 2-3 people at every polling place and you've just elected yourself a candidate. No lie.

How does one illegal immigrant go about getting Medi-Cal?

Please tell me because I think you're full of fucking shit.

Many of the illegals giving birth at our hospitals are on MediCal, that's just a fact. Also, their anchor babies then get free healthcare insurance legally until age 18, including for very expensive surgary like kidney transplants.

2/3 of live births in the county are to Hispanics many illegals (hospitals don't keep exact stats, but they follow general figures), and it's an open fact that many are on MediCal, others of course uninsured. There is NO check for legal status in applying for MediCal in L A County, that's why we're a defacto sanctuary city.

The worst aspect is, county clinics and ER's are closing or on the verge of it as a result, and legal elderly on MediCare are often being denied care -- most doctors won't take them as new patients, and it's especially hard to find specialists because the doctors are eating too many low payments already.

You watch those arrogant idiots marching on May 1st because of our tax dollars demanding rights they haven't earned, carrying Mexican flags in our country, acting like victims and chanting like a bunch of uneducated morons. Antonio, Huizar, Reyes, Cedillo and the rest of the low life Latino politicans who have no class will be marching with them pretending to feel sorry for them all the while allowing them to turn our city into Tijuana. There are thousands of LEGAL BORN LATINOS OF THIS CITY that want ICE to start raiding. The media never wants to hear our side of the issue. LAPD needs to start enforcing the laws.

It's amazing how the Left loves to cry election fraud and the injustices of it, while they are the ones who are against requiring those who go to the polls to show an ID. The biggest argument is that it will discourage and/or keep minorities and older people from voting. How will this do that? If you don't have a license to drive, you can always get an ID card.

I'm hearing about how minorities are kept from voting. Are there people outside of the polling places threatening them? If so, then how come this hasn't been reported?

If you don't want fraud in elections, you have to require ID. I have to show my ID when I use a credit card and/or write a check for something I purchase. this is not a violation of my privacy. This is for my protection to make sure that it is actually and not somebody else.
