The Justice Department has demanded that Florida stop trying to identify noncitizens to purge from its voter registration rolls. Last night the department sent a detailed letter to Florida's Secretary of State, Ken Detzner, instructing the state to end the practice, which it said violated the Voting Rights Act and the National Voter Registration Act. Joining us is Marc Caputo, who has been covering the story for the Miami Herald.
