DES MOINES (AP) — Two civil rights groups have sued Iowa Secretary of State Matt Schultz to overturn a new state rule allowing people to be removed from voter registration lists if their citizenship is questioned.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Iowa and the Iowa League of United Latin American Citizens filed the lawsuit Friday in Polk County District Court in Des Moines. The rule took effect Wednesday. The lawsuit asks a judge to find the rule illegal and issue a court order that prevents it from being implemented.
