In a victory for Republicans, the federal government has agreed to let Florida use a law enforcement database to challenge people’s right to vote if they are suspected of not being U.S. citizens. The agreement, made in a letter Scott’s administration that was obtained by The Associated Press, grants the state access to a list of resident non citizens maintained by the Department of Homeland Security. The Obama administration had denied Florida’s request for months. (AP Photo/J Pat Carter, File)
