INSANE: Texas lawmakers want anyone who said they were a noncitizen at any point over 22 year-period to be purged from voter rolls (with no notification!), even tho the reason they're registered is very likely that they were naturalized during that time.

This is retribution against Democratic Senators who have come forward stating they would not vote to confirm David Whitley to the $135,000 post as Secretary of State. The wording is even worse in that it will kick off anyone who's ever advised any government entity noncitizenship

That means every single naturalized citizen in the state of Texas would be kicked off because in applying for a green card they are indicating noncitizenship.

On a certain level this is almost a gift to turn Texas even more purple by shifting a critical demographic - Latinx voters

The “no notice” gives away that this isn’t about preventing fraud. It’s about getting rid of nonwhite voters. The bad faith is blatant.

If they're looking for retribution, they haven't seen backlash like they'll get for this move. is up for re-election next cycle. SENATOR, what say you to this maneuver to KICK OFF ALL NATURALIZED CITIZENS FROM TEXAS' VOTERS REGISTRATION ROLLS?

the sponsors are state Senator Paul Bettencourt (who represents part of Harris County) & state Senator Pat Fallon (who represents northeastern Texas). and why stop at nativism when there are other people to mock?

"Very likely"? Well, then they might be registered twice, probably are.

How do you get there? That seems an awfully long leap, so I'm wondering what data you're basing that on.

Actually, if they go back a 100 years, there will be a few centenarians who be dropped also. Pure voter restrictions and political avarice in Texas.

Well, you don’t expect them to win elections by actually being fair, do you?
