Obama-Appointed Judge Blocks Florida’s Election Law Banning Non-Citizens From Collecting Voter Registration Forms

On Monday, a federal judge appointed by former President Barack Obama, issued a preliminary injunction against Florida’s election law that imposed limitations on third-party voter registration organizations.

The ruling has been met with outrage from conservative Republican circles, who see the decision as an affront to the state’s right to govern its own elections.

The law in question, signed by Governor Ron DeSantis (R) in May of this year, barred non-citizens from handling or collecting voter registration forms.

In response to the lawsuit brought forth by one of the plaintiffs – an immigrant from El Salvador who works for “Mi Vecino”, a third party voter registration organization – US District Judge Mark Walker declared the election law unconstitutional and took a veiled swipe at Governor DeSantis in his 58-page ruling. In his opinion, Judge Walker wrote:

“Florida may, of course, regulate elections, including the voter registration process. Here, however, the challenged provisions exemplify something Florida has struggled with in recent years; namely governing within the bounds set by the United States Constitution.”

These words seem to be evidence of judicial activism – yet another example of liberal-leaning judges attempting to override state statutes which they disagree with and impose their own will upon local communities.

Proponents of SB 7020 argue that allowing non-citizens to handle or collect Voter Registration Forms opens up opportunities for fraud and abuse in our electoral system. This sentiment is shared across both parties; no one wants foreign interference in our elections and it is crucial that we protect our democracy against any threat posed by outside actors.

Despite this ruling being just a preliminary injunction rather than a final decision on whether or not SB 7020 should stand into law , it still poses serious implications for conservatives across Florida and beyond who support election integrity measures such as these.

    Obama did say he was going to fundamentally change America, didn’t he? The democrats (marxists) drool all over themselves with him as America is spiraling downhill. Keep in mind, this battle is good vs. evil.

    I agree that the judge has no standing according to the U.S. Constitution. He has violated his oath of office by ignoring State Rights as laid out in the U.S. Constitution. The judge should be arrested for violation of our Constitution and jailed for interfering with our elections.

    No one should be positioned between a voter, who is a citizen and the polling station. Be it an Illegal Alien, or US Citizen except for the US Post Office and they had best be hiring US Citizens.

    There may be more bombshells when people start reading the entirety of some of the last laws passed in some of the multi-purpose laws passed in late 2022. I believe there is some laws that will guarantee the Democrats will win in perpetuity. I have a friend to filed a FOIA suit and received a document that it had been so heavily redacted that only the adjectives and prepositions were visible.

    I never liked Bush but this country has continued to spiral out of control mostly due to Hillary, Obama and Biden administrations. Soros and Al Sharpton continue to support them along with AG, mayors, etc. with millions for dollars which should be a crime by buying votes which should be illegal and include prosecution to anyone accepting that money. Bought and paid for and our country is gone.

      Monica, remember that Bush was the one who gave us the patriot act. Has it caught a single terrorist? That isn’t the real purpose of the Act, it is to begin to enure Americans to being tracked and searched everywhere you go. Are the 87,000 really going to be IRS agents? Or maybe something a little more clandestine?

    The Judge should be disbarred for Life and banned from holding any public office for life as well. His ruling violates the Very CONSTITUTION he claims to rule from. The CONSTITUTION leaves to the states the right to set Election Laws in th e State.
