Having said that why is Homeland Security under the direction of the DOJ blocking Florida from accessing a database they are legally entitled too to begin with. Frankly if there is anyone to blame for this fiasco it's the DOJ. This data not only would be able to identify ineligible voters but would also keep eligible voters off the list.
If they get this data the results should be interesting, if even 0.005% of those on the 180K list are found to be ineligible that's 900 votes and enough votes to swing a presidential election in 2000.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) said he will sue the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to move forward with his controversial attempt to purge the voter rolls in his state of ineligible voters.
“I have a job to do to defend the right of legitimate voters,” Scott told Fox News on Monday. “We’ve been asking for the Department of Homeland Security’s database, SAVE, for months, and they haven’t given it to us. So this afternoon, we will be filing a lawsuit, the secretary of State of Florida, against the Department of Homeland Security to give us that database. We want to have fair, honest elections in our state and we have been put in a position that we have to sue the federal government to get this information.”
