On today’s Neal Cavuto, Florida Governor Rick Scott told the host he was going to sue the Department of Homeland Security:
Gov. Rick Scott’s top elections official sued the U.S. Department of Homeland Security on Monday, accusing the agency of unlawful “recalcitrance” for refusing Florida access to a database that could help the state spot and remove noncitizens from the voter rolls.
“We have a right to this database,” Scott said Monday on FOX News’ Your World Cavuto show. “It’s supposed to be used for voting registration. I look forward to them giving us the database but, again, we don’t have a choice but to sue them this afternoon.”
DHS has refused to comment or explain why it won’t give Florida access to the database.
Remember, the federal government is a creation of the states, not the other way around. They need to open the database to the state.
