“The Democratic Party’s most recent desperate attempt to win an election if not illegally then at least immorally involves doing just that: Granting rights of our nation’s citizens to its illegal aliens.”
Law Enforcement Today-January 9th, 2020
This last chapter was not in the original planned conversation. It was much later in the process that this conversation raised its head to be heard.
As is the case in many cases, the original idea and plan gets hijacked by people and organization with good intentions.. In compiling the facts and dealing with the accusations of illegal immigrants and immigrants being victims, it became clear that the unintentional victim in this immigration scenario is The American citizen.
Keeping in mind that The American Citizen bears some responsibility for this, as we have allowed forces to infiltrate our rights, values and culture through our lethargic voting actions.
In 2016, 61.4 percent of the citizen voting-age population reported voting, a number not statistically different from the 61.8 percent who reported voting in 2012.
In the aftermath of Clinton’s loss, some Democrats have argued that the low voter turnout was driven by Republicans’ voter suppression efforts, such as strict voter ID laws and early voting cuts. But the research shows that these types of efforts have little to no impact on voter turnout. And, again, US voter turnout has been fairly stable in presidential elections — typically fluctuating between around 55 and 60 percent
Voter participation also depends on the state where you vote. According to a Wall Street Journal analysis on state participation, fewer Americans vote when their states are less competitive in races between Democrats and Republicans.
While solutions to the voting dilemma remain fluid, the turnout rate in the U.S. may also come down to the age of the country’s democracy. One Harvard University study found that citizens from advanced democratic nations tend to abstain from voting.
Here’s a list of the 5 closest 2016 states, according to The Cook Political Report’s running tally, ranked from narrowest margin by percentage to widest:
Michigan 0.3 percent
Trump 47.6 percent, Clinton 47.3 percent
Difference: 13,080 votes
New Hampshire 0.4 percent
Clinton 47.6 percent, Trump 47.2 percent
Difference: 2,701 votes
Wisconsin 1 percent
Trump 47.9 percent, Clinton 46.9 percent
Difference: 27,257 votes
Pennsylvania 1.2 percent
Trump 48.8 percent, Clinton 47.6 percent
Difference: 68,236 votes (99 percent reporting)
Florida 1.2 percent
Trump 49 percent, Clinton 47.8 percent
Difference: 114,455 votes
One could say that those numbers put to rest the excuse “my vote doesn’t count”
A excellent example is the 2018 democratic primary in the 14th congressional district, when incumbent and well known Joseph Crowley was upset by newcomer Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The registered voters turned out in a anemic 13%, allowing the challenger to win with just under 17,000 votes.
When our elections become as tight as they have been, truly each vote matters. With that being said, as citizens of this great country we need to be ever vigilant in this privilege, to make sure it’s not corrupted.

1.Illegal Immigrants getting Drivers License
In an effort to encourage more Americans to register to vote, Congress and then-President Bill Clinton enacted the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) in 1993. Commonly referred to as “Motor Voter”, the law mandates that “states provide individuals with the opportunity to register to vote at the same time that they apply for a driver’s license or seek to renew a driver’s license.” The law also directs states to “offer voter registration opportunities at all offices that provide public assistance and all offices that provide state-funded programs primarily engaged in providing services to persons with disabilities.”
Since the NVRA’s passage in 1993, the number of registered voters has increased every year. According to the Bipartisan Policy Institute, the share of the voting-age population that is registered to vote has increased from 68.4 percent in 1992 to 70.0 percent in 2012. Politico reported that over 200 million people were registered to vote before the 2016 election.
Certainly, the NVRA simplified the process for registering voters by allowing individuals to register when they applied for driver’s licenses. For practical reasons, states do not differentiate licenses between citizens and aliens. Plenty of legal immigrants apply for and receive licenses every day. While they have equal access to a driver’s license, legal immigrants, as non-citizens, do not have the right to vote. But due to the NVRA, almost all of them were presented the opportunity in their license application to register to vote, and many (often mistakenly) selected that they wanted to be registered to vote. This process usually involved simply checking off a box on the application, which was then sent off to the state board of elections.
Often, the fact that an individual was an alien was lost in translation, and many were mistakenly registered to vote in federal and state elections. To understand how common this mistake is, recently the California DMV discovered that 1,500 legal immigrants were registered to vote within a span of only five months.
The Boston Herald said in their opinion piece published “Illegal immigrants should not get driver’s licenses”-September 4, 2019 .
“A driver’s license can bridge the gap between undocumented status and the full privileges of citizenship, including voting. It is quite a reward to bestow upon someone who has repeatedly broken the law, in most cases, in establishing an unearned livelihood in this country.”
As of December 2019, 15 U.S. states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico issue driver’s licenses or permits to some or all of the population residing illegally in the United States.

Report: At Least 3,100 Noncitizens Registered to Vote in Just 13 Sanctuary Cities
Accordingly, from “The Heritage Foundation”article ”Integrity Do Illegal Votes Decide Elections?” published on Dec 16th, 2016
“The danger looms large in states such as California, which provides driver’s licenses to noncitizens, including those here illegally, and which also does nothing to verify citizenship during voter registration. In a 1996 House race, then-challenger Loretta Sanchez defeated incumbent Rep. Bob Dornan by under 1,000 votes. An investigation by a House committee found 624 invalid votes by noncitizens, nearly enough to overturn the result.
A postelection survey conducted by Americas Majority Foundation found that 2.1% of noncitizens voted in the 2016 Nov. 8 election. In the battleground states of Michigan and Ohio, 2.5% and 2.1%, respectively, of noncitizens reported voting. In 2013, pollster McLaughlin & Associates conducted an extensive survey of Hispanics on immigration issues. Its voter-profile tabulation shows that 13% of noncitizens said they were registered to vote. That matches closely the Old Dominion/George Mason study, in which 15.6% of noncitizens said they were registered.”
For your information, the following two excerpts are from “Center for Immigration Studies”-Aliens and Voter Fraud-October 29th, 2018
A 2014 article published in the journal Electoral Studies found that “non-citizen voters likely gave Senate Democrats the pivotal 60th vote needed to overcome filibusters in order to pass health care reform.” The report also noted that “there is reason to believe non-citizen voting changed one state’s Electoral College votes in 2008, delivering North Carolina to Obama.”
Researchers from Old Dominion University (ODU) and George Mason University (GMU) analyzed participation rates by non-citizens using data from 2008 and 2010 Cooperative Congressional Election Studies. With this data, the researchers estimated that roughly 620,000 non-citizens were registered to vote prior to the 2008 election.
The researchers focused on the North Carolina presidential tally as well as the senate race in Minnesota. By comparing non-citizen turnout to the vote margin needed to win the elections, they concluded that non-citizen voting likely won the elections for the Democratic Party candidates in both instances. Referring to the North Carolina election, the authors wrote that “it is likely … that John McCain would have won North Carolina were it not for the votes for Obama cast by non-citizens.” They described the Minnesota senate election as one of the most important congressional races in that election cycle, given that it ensured a 60-vote filibuster-proof Democratic majority. Notably, the vote was decided by only 312 votes. Highlighting the razor-thin margin in which candidate Al Franken won, the authors wrote that “participation by more than 0.65 percent of non-citizens in MN is sufficient to account for the entirety of Franken’s margin. Our best guess is that nearly ten times as many voted.”
The findings presented in the report are alarming. The report’s allegation that major elections were decided by the votes of non-citizens is deeply troubling and an indication that something in our system needs to change to keep aliens from deciding the outcome of elections.
The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) is a law group dedicated to ensuring election integrity. They published the following report that details the specific instances in which aliens were registered.
PILF released a September 2016 report titled “Alien Invasion in Virginia”, which highlighted the ways in which 1,046 aliens registered to vote in eight counties. In May 2017 PILF released a follow-up to that study titled “Alien Invasion II: The Sequel to the Discovery and Cover-up of Non-Citizen Registration and Voting in Virginia”. That report was even more damning:
5,556 non-citizens have been removed from the voter rolls for citizenship problems in 120 of Virginia’s 133 voting jurisdictions since 2011. In 102 of these jurisdictions, 1,852 individuals cast 7,474 ballots before election officials cancelled their registrations. In the other 13 voting jurisdictions, election officials have not removed a single record from the voter rolls because of citizenship problems in over 6 years.
The report concluded by stating that “Each of these individuals can make their way onto the voting rolls by simply checking the wrong box during a visit to the DMV. The true extent of the problem likely runs in the tens of thousands, if not more.” Again, this report highlighted the same issue found in the ODU-GMU study. Both reports found that it is fairly easy for non-citizen aliens to inadvertently become registered voters when they apply for driver’s licenses.
The AB 60 law (Governor Brown signed AB 60 into law in 2013, which directs the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to issue a driver’s license to any California resident who is eligible, regardless of immigration status. This means that an applicant who is undocumented can receive a driver’s license under AB 60. ) did not take effect until the beginning of 2015. In the first twelve months, a little over 600,000 people in California met all the eligibility requirements to obtain a driver’s license. This number continued to increase in the following months.
In closing, please note that with the tunnel vision on Covid 19, the illegal immigration concern is being overlooked to say the least. If the Biden-Harris ticket takes office, the border laws will be loosened if not opened ICE will be defunded and all illegal immigrants will have free healthcare. At least that was the consensus of every Democratic candidate on the stage that night .That alone will destroy this great country,
Thank you for the conversation…..
