Jay Sekulow, the prolific Supreme Court attorney, has recently been on FOX news talking about the Department of Justice blocking the state of Arizona implementing the voter ID card. On his blog, he wrote, “Critics claim the voter ID law is burdensome and disenfranchises voters. Ridiculous. Voting is a privilege. There is nothing wrong or unconstitutional requiring those who vote to show an ID. In fact, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the right of states to require identification cards in a 2008 Indiana case. Texas is well within its rights to identify voters who want to cast a ballot. There is voter fraud. It is a problem. And the truth is that even a small amount of voter fraud can affect the outcome of close elections.”
Jay is not new to social causes and struggles for religious freedom, as chief counsel of The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ). The ACLJ is recognized as one of the most successful law firms in the country. He is the face of religious democracy and freedom for thousands of people. Time Magazine has also referred to him as the “25 Most Influential Evangelicals” of his times. Jay started the ACLJ when he realized that Christians around the world were suffering for practicing their faith. Today ACLJ has sister concerns in various parts of the globe such as France, Russia, Kenya, Pakistan, Israel and Zimbabwe. Today ACLJ can be found around the globe with the European Centre, Slavic Centre, African Centre and East African Centre.
The ACLJ, under the direction provided by Jay, focuses on various constitutional and human right issues around the globe. Jay is a renowned attorney in the Supreme Court too, having fought many cases that helped to produce landmark results. Jay has won various accolades for religious liberty around the globe. The National Law Journal named him as one of the “100 most influential lawyers in America.” He has also won acclaim for being the “The 90 Greatest Washington Lawyers of the Last 30 Years.” He also interacts with people through his interactive radio show “Jay Sekulow Live!” in which he talks about the issues affecting America.
