Non-Citizens Are Voting

John Fund, National Review, October 30, 2014

Could non-citizen voting be a problem in next week’s elections, and perhaps even swing some very close elections?

A new study by two Old Dominion University professors, based on survey data from the Cooperative Congressional Election Study, indicated that 6.4 percent of all non-citizens voted illegally in the 2008 presidential election, and 2.2 percent in the 2010 midterms. Given that 80 percent of non-citizens lean Democratic, they cite Al Franken ’s 312-vote win in the 2008 Minnesota U.S. Senate race as one likely tipped by non-citizen voting. As a senator, Franken cast the 60th vote needed to make Obamacare law.

North Carolina features one of the closest Senate races in the country this year, between Democratic incumbent Kay Hagan and Republican Thom Tillis. So what guerrilla filmmaker James O’Keefe, the man who has uncovered voter irregularities in states ranging from Colorado to New Hampshire, has learned in North Carolina is disturbing. This month, North Carolina officials found at least 145 illegal aliens, still in the country thanks to the Obama administration’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, registered to vote. Hundreds of other non-citizens may be on the rolls.

A voter-registration card is routinely issued without any identification check, and undocumented workers can use it for many purposes, including obtaining a driver’s license and qualifying for a job. And if a non-citizen has a voter-registration card, there are plenty of campaign operatives who will encourage him or her to vote illegally.

O’Keefe had a Brazilian-born immigrant investigator pose as someone who wanted to vote but was not a citizen. Greg Amick, the campaign manager for the Democrat running for sheriff in Mecklenburg County (Charlotte), was only too happy to help.

Greg Amick: Here’s a couple of things you can do. You do not have to have your driver’s license, but do you have any sort of identification?

Project Veritas investigator: But I do have my driver’s license.

Amick: Oh, you do. Show ’em that and you’re good.

PV: But the only problem, you know, I don’t want to vote if I’m not legal. I think that’s going to be a problem. I’m not sure.

Amick: It won’t be, it shouldn’t be an issue at all.

PV: No?

Amick: As long as you are registered to vote, you’ll be fine.

But North Carolina officials shouldn’t be “fine” with Amick, who appears to be afoul of a state law making it a felony “for any person, knowing that a person is not a citizen of the United States, to instruct or coerce that person to register to vote or to vote.”

The anything-goes attitude towards non-citizen voting crosses party lines. A campaign worker for the Republican running against Amick’s candidate for sheriff even called her boss before telling the O’Keefe investigator that it was for fine for non-citizens to vote: “Welcome aboard.”

Martin Kelly, whose son is running as a Democrat for superior-court judge in Mecklenburg, was blasé when asked whether non-citizens could vote. Kelly: “If you registered . . . [shrugs shoulders]. All they can do is say no. They can’t do anything else.”

      Its nice to have it on video to prove

      • MannyR

        We have video/audio proof of many things….not a thing gets done about them because those in power know whites won’t get off their asses and put force behind their objection. That’s why they ignore us.

    Voter ID laws do not suppress or seek to suppress anybody’s vote. They are meant to prevent the massive voter fraud the dems want to engineer by killing these laws.

    • IstvanIN

      Of course but the Demonrats have no morals.

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      Voter fraud is now its own voting bloc.

    • 1stworlder

      They do make a good point about non-Asian minorities being too stupid and lazy to get ID.

      • benvad

        Better for us.

      • Should stupid and lazy people really be voting?

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        True. But when it comes to welfare and other government entitlements, those IDs that NAMS are unable to get suddenly appear – multiple IDs, that is.

        • assmunch

          My cat has to have ID and she never leaves the house let alone vote.

  • Cecil Henry

    People need to go to jail for this. For a long time.

    Why is this not being prosecuted.

    • JSS

      Are you being sarcastic or do you actually believe Amurrikan law is something other then a tool used to further the agenda of our kosher and useful idiot overlords? This will not only not be prosecuted but will be outright encouraged by the US government. Non citizens voting helps ensure Whites are further marginalized and those in power stay in power. Thinking that you have a voice or that the Amurikan justice system actually concerns it itself with justice is the height of naivety.

      Well, instead of jailing the illegals who vote, what about jailing them for being here in the first place?!
      Oops, you meant those politicians! Well, same, instead of jailing those politicians for letting illegals vote, they should be jailed for letting those illegals be here in the first place…

      Better yet, deported.

    An election integrity watchdog group is suing the state of Maryland, alleging that it has discovered massive and ongoing fraudulent voting by non-U.S. citizens in one county. But because of the way that the non-citizens are able to cast votes in elections, the fraud is likely happening in every single county and subdivision across the state. The group believes that the illegal voting has been happening for years.

    The group, Virginia Voters Alliance, says that it compared how voters in Frederick County filled out jury duty statements compared with their voting records. The group’s investigation found that thousands of people in Frederick County who stated that they are not U.S. citizens on jury duty forms went on to cast votes in elections. Either they failed to tell the truth when they were summoned for jury duty, or they cast illegal votes. Both are crimes. The same group previously found that about 40,000 people are registered to vote in both Virginia and Maryland.

      Don’t look now but there is a movement to allow illegals to serve on juries.

      As California goes….

      2013:

      SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The California Assembly passed a bill that would make the state the first in the nation to allow non-citizens who are in the country legally to serve on jury duty.

      In sanctuary state California, ALL illegals are legal.

      They can already drive “legally” and practice law in California.

      The governor vetoed the bill…for now.

      Want to see what YOUR state will look like in 50 years (or fewer)? Come to California. Fast-breeding illegals are spreading out across the nation like a plague.

      • Alexandra1973

        Well, when the Big One hits, I bet few tears will be shed.

        • Bon, From the Land of Babble

          What makes you think YOU will be spared from government-sanctioned, third world illegal aliens coming to colonize your state and take what your’ve built and earned?

          Like Visa, they’re “everywhere you wanna be.”

          I’ve traveled to all 57 states and seen them in Alaska and Hawaii.

          The government has told us since the 80s that there are “10 to 12 million illegals,” There are that many alone in Los Angeles county.

          Try 30 million, possibly 50 million fast breeding illegal aliens coming YOUR way.

          • Alexandra1973

            Yes, there are some in Ohio…but California has a good amount of them.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    In California this is not news and has been going on for two decades, if not longer.

    Ask Bob “B-1” Dornan how he lost his seat in the OC in the 80s due to illegal aliens casting votes for the wholly incompetent socialist Loretta Sanchez. Dornan even had the proof and the GOPenablers and RINOS could have put a stop to it then but ignored the evidence.

    You can be sure if illegals were voting Republican, the media would be screaming for deportations and a militarized border with shoot to kill orders.

    Why shouldn’t illegals vote? We have one as POSTUS.

      Hardee har har – Ralph Kramden. I should’ve had him laughing. My bad.

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        Jackie Gleason was a genius with a true eidetic memory. He could read a long, complex script through one time and memorize not only his lines word for word, but every one else’s as well.

        How Sweet It is!!

        • I don’t like jokes about family abuse, but that was very funny.

          • Bon, From the Land of Babble

            Shows how times have changed, doesn’t it?

            One of the recurring things Ralph said to his wife Alice was this:

            “One of these days… POW!!! Right in the kisser!!”

            And everyone at that time thought it was hilarious. Try it now and the feminazis would be out in force.

        • Ringo Lennon

          Very clever, very funny.

    Once hispanics seize political power in the southwest they will attempt to seize the land either for Mexico, or attempt to turn it into an independent hispanic state. We’ve seen this happen before. Already they are attempting to leave immigration laws null and void. It’s only a matter of time.

    • 1stworlder

      Parasites cant survive without a host. If it goes to mexico no more food stamps.

      • benvad

        I doubt they’re worried about that. The white leaders in Mexico want all of the Spanish Empires lands in their hands and that’s that.

      Notice in almost every city: when the population of a city becomes majority non-white, they pass laws to the effect that you must live within the city limits in order to work and/or do business with the city. It seem outlying suburbs, and mostly white areas have a diversity plan, and so do non-white cities and regions.

      Nah. Some Chicano Leftists academics threaten this. Reality on the ground is that poor Mestizos are transient and simply are always trying to move on to better, Whiter places. If most of the Southwest becomes like bad places in Mexico, the Mestizo hordes will try to move on up to Kansas and Nebraska.

      Bad Liberal pol states like Minnesota with extremely bad tax exempt “Christian in name only” churches first sponsor terrible immigrants like poligamist Muslim Bantu Somalians, once here the Somalians end up going other places like Middle Tennessee. Extremely cold winter places will in the long run not hold on to the worst non Whites. I am surprised Blacks stayed in Detroit this long.

  • Ringo Lennon

    Non-citizens voting.

    No kidding? That’s the only way Dems can win. Why you think they don’t want voter ID? That’s how that creep Al Franken(stein) won. BTW, his vote passed Obamacare. Besides you gotta use these people for more than just leaf blowing, crowding up our schools, hospitals and traffic. Also welfare usage and taking out white neighborhoods.(sarcasm)

  • Holden

    Thomas Meehan wrote a fantastic article on VDare.com explaining why Republicans refuse to fight voter fraud. I would highly recommend it.

    If your state has Motor Voter laws, illegal voting is guaranteed.
    All they have to do is check the voter registration option on the DMV form.
    It is that easy.

  • benvad

    Only American leftist can claim needing photo id is racist.

    • Alexandra1973

      I don’t understand what the big deal is.

      Here in Ohio, each precinct has a list of its voters on a print-out. You show your ID, you find your name, you sign next to it, you vote, and you’re done.

      I guess voting only once is a White thing.

  • Fed Up

    Non-citizens and illegal immigrants in particular — not only are allowed to vote. . . They are encouraged to vote. The only requirement being they vote strictly for the Liarcrat (Democrat) Party!

    Just what don’t you “racists” understand here? (kidding, of course, about the “racist{“.)

  • Ringo Lennon

    “I don’t need no stinkin’ ID to vote!” said the greasy alien.
