Sen. Ted Cruz (R. Tex) is very unhappy about this week’s Supreme Court ruling, which held that Arizona cannot demand “documentary evidence” of United States citizenship as a condition of registering to vote in federal elections. The ruling has opened a “hole” in the law, he says, that will allow “non-citizens to register and thereby encourages voter fraud.” He has therefore vowed to “file a commonsense (sic) amendment to the immigration bill that permits states to require I.D. before registering voters.”
This raises a fascinating question. How would Cruz himself go about providing “documentary evidence” of his own citizenship?
