It people were provided paperwork and transportation to prove legal citizenship would people still oppose a law requiring an ID to vote?

Imo... since many people don't live close to their nearest DMV, just send vans from the DMV into targeted communities to assist in making (non driver) ID cards for people who need one. Particularly areas with many elderly or poor people who may have the hardest time getting to the DMV on their own to get that done. And maybe do it on occasion at libraries too for all communities beyond a certain distance from the DMV. This way, for example, hourly paid parents who don't have a big income and can't afford to take a day off to go sit at the DMV and don't have or can't afford childcare if they don't get home on time because bus schedules are what they are, it would give them an easier opportunity to get an ID card.
I don't have any issue with one being required. I DO have issue with people not believing that it's only right that states do what they can to help ensure everyone can easily get one if they're going to insist that they have one.
There's idiots on here who are always going on about how liberals are racist or something and believe that people are too dumb to get one, but these crap for brains users constantly ignore that there are many factors in many people's lives that can get in the way. If something is required then it's only right to make it an easy process to ensure that everyone receives it.

Where in the Constitution does it say states can deny citizens from voting in federal elections?

If it could be guaranteed that the administration of the ID card program would be unbiased in any way, then I doubt people would oppose it.
But there can be no such guarantee; bias and prejudice are common in politics. Someone would find a way to deny certain cultures in the US the right to vote by preventing them from have an ID card.

When the GOP takes over Congress this Fall we'll pass E-Verify and voter ID with or without the Democrats cooperation .

If they weren't provided with the money to get the ID, then yes.
If they were provided with that as well, then everyone would oppose it, because it would pointless (and expensive). Requiring an ID to vote does not stop any illegal voting. The only voting stopped by voter ID requirements is legal voting by citizens who don't have the money to get a voter ID (even if they already have an ID that they got for free therefore can't use as a voter ID, because only an ID that costs money can be used for voting).

Can you identify any need for it in this country? The FBI who investigates voter fraud can't.

I am sure there would still be some opposition.

Liberals will always oppose voter ID because they cheat in elections. If Canada has national voter IDs, surely the USA can and should also. IDs are cheap, convenient, and easy to get. It just makes sense.

If IDs were free, easy to get, were universal, and Republicans didn't mess with students right to vote where they spend tens of thousands a year into the economy, sure
