Obama Administration Refuses to Help Clean Florida Voter Rolls

Published Tue, May 15 2012 8:50 AM

Florida officials have asked Obama’s Department of Homeland Security to give them access to databases to help determine who is a citizen, but have been not permitted.

180,000 people on the voter rolls are being investigated by the Florida Division of Elections to determine whether they are eligible voters as United States citizens.  Nearly 1,600 of the voters identified list their address as in Miami-Dade County.

"We've been requesting access, but have so far been denied," a spokesman from the Florida Division of Elections, Chris Cate, said.

“Both the law and department policy requires [the Department of Homeland Security] to provide access to the [Systematic Alienation Verification for Entitlements] SAVE program within a reasonable time,” according to Rep. Jeff Miller (R-FL).
