Ted Cruz: I’ll Bring Voter ID To Immigration Reform Debate

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) announced Monday that he’ll be introducing an amendment to the Senate immigration reform bill permitting states to require identification from Americans registering to vote.

The amendment comes in the wake of a Monday morning Supreme Court ruling that overturned an Arizona law requiring proof of citizenship to register to vote.

The conservative senator has a record of defending voter fraud prevention measures, and has also been vocally opposed to the Gang of Eight’s plan for comprehensive immigration reform.
