The Department of Justice filed a lawsuit against Arizona in an attempt to block a law requiring voters to show proof of citizenship before casting their ballots in federal elections.

The DOJ argues the requirement is “a textbook violation of the National Voter Registration Act,” according to The Hill.

Arizona Republican Attorney General Mark Brnovich responded to the lawsuit on Twitter: “It’s another round of Brnovich v. Biden as his DOJ continues its attempts to undermine our election integrity laws. I will see you in court. Again.”

Brnovich, who is running in the state's GOP U.S. Senate primary, has promised before that his office will “do everything in our power to push back against the lawlessness of the Biden Administration.”

The Biden administration claimed Arizona's voter integrity measure is regressive.
