Democrats are desperate to win the 2020 presidential election. With President Donald Trump’s incumbent status, booming economy, and insanely loyal base of supporters, liberals feel they need to pull out all the stops to defeat him next year. That includes cheating.
Just about anyone with a pulse knows Democrats’ strategy always seems to hinge on pushing minorities to the polls on Election Day. Therefore, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Government Accountability Institute, GAI, Director of Research Eric Eggers recently proclaimed to Breitbart that it’s “only a matter of time before illegal alien voting is expanded.”
Eggers’ assertion came on the heels of Democrats in the state of New York passing and signing into law a plan to provide driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants. According to Breitbart, “The law allows for the state’s 725,000-strong illegal alien population to be eligible for the same driver’s license that American citizens are afforded.”
Disturbingly, state officials have already conceded the new law will essentially hand illegal aliens the ability to vote because New York registers people to vote in its Department of Motor Vehicle, DMV, offices.
Eggers insisted it’s “only a matter of time” before Democrats in liberal states such as New York, California, Oregon, Massachusetts, and Maryland expand voting liberties to illegal immigrants. Eggers stated, “This is the first step towards the expansion of a number of things that normalize the rights of illegal aliens.”
The GAI Director of Research went on to say, “It’s only a matter of time before we see the expansion of illegal alien voting in state elections and eventually the Left pushing for illegal alien voting in federal elections.”
Eggers provided two distinct scenarios where illegal immigrants might register to vote in The Empire State. He remarked that they may do so by knowingly registering to vote at the DMV through fraudulently claiming an eligibility to vote. He commented, “We’re now trusting illegal aliens’ honor not to register to vote.”
Eggers maintained that New York’s Democratic officials might also exploit illegal immigrants by pressuring them to register to vote without their knowledge that it’s an illegal act.
He remarked, “My research shows that illegals get caught up in this by parties that exploit and victimize illegal aliens.” Liz Ricci, a Florida immigration lawyer, informed Breitbart that she’s served clients who’ve gotten snared in a voting registration system that was inherently easy. Ricci’s clients have suffered undesirable consequences as a result.
She stated, “I’ve had other clients who were denied naturalization because of this.” Eggers didn’t think the timing of New York’s move was a coincidence. He said, “The Democrats are doing this right in time for 2020. We know that [DNC Chairman] Tom Perez has been advocating for this — the expansion of voting rights to illegal aliens.”
The GAI Director of Research maintained to Breitbart that The Empire State’s new law will “potentially increase” the effects of illegal immigrants voting in the state and serve to temper the votes of actual citizens. Breitbart reported that “California, where illegal aliens are allowed to obtain driver’s licenses as well, has been found to have a growing voter fraud issue across the state. Last year, the California DMV admitted that it had registered 1,500 non-eligible voters, including noncitizens, over the course of just six months.”
Earlier this year, almost every Democrat in the U.S. House of Representatives voted against a measure that condemned illegal immigrants voting in U.S. elections. According to Fox News, “The GOP-backed measure would have added language to the ‘H.R. 1’ election proposal stating that ‘allowing illegal immigrants the right to vote devalues the franchise and diminishes the voting power of United States citizens.’”
Obviously, federal statues already ban non-citizens from voting in contests for federal offices. However, the Republican-backed legislation noted liberal San Francisco’s decision to permit non-citizens, and even illegal aliens, to register to vote in school board elections.
Unsurprisingly, the GOP measure wasn’t successful in the Democratic controlled House. All Democrats, except for six, voted against it. One Republican also voted no.
Fox News reported that “Lauren Fine, a spokeswoman for House GOP Whip Steve Scalise, pointed out that an identical resolution was adopted by the House last September. But on Friday, 41 Democrats flipped to oppose the latest measure.”
Fine aptly stated, “These 41 Democrats must now answer to voters why they were against illegal immigrants voting in elections six months ago, but are suddenly in favor of it now.”
Democrats may be willing to do just about anything to get illegal aliens to voting booths. To remain in office, Republicans need to illustrate to everyone in this country, legal citizens and otherwise, how their model of capitalism and limited government trumps liberal socialism hands down.
