A Pennsylvania judge just refused to block a tough new voter ID law from going into effect in the state. Civil rights groups are arguing that the law discriminates against minority and elderly citizens, while Republicans believe that it will crack down on voter fraud.

Judge Andrew Napolitano joined America’s Newsroom to reflect on the ruling, saying, “There is a problem with voter fraud in this country.

Voting is essentially managed by the states, not by the federal government, and some states, Indiana and Pennsylvania, have decided to address this and they’ve addressed it in a constitutional way.”

He also said that in states that have passed such laws, the number of minority people voting has actually gone up. He said, “Most people discover it’s not that difficult to prove who you are, whether you use a government-issued ID or something akin to it. It’s not that difficult to get it.”
