Aliens Are Stealing Our Birthright: The Right To Vote

Our friend Daniel Horowitz recently posted an outstanding summary of the damage judicial tyranny and scoff-law Democrat elected officials are doing to our constitutional republic, but of the many hazards listed, one in particular caught our eye: how they are allowing illegal aliens to steal our birthright, the right to vote.

A particularly egregious example of how Democrats are facilitating illegal alien voting is a new Chicago Illegal alien votingmunicipal ID, designed primarily for illegal aliens, that will be accepted in Chicago as a valid form of identification to register to vote.

WQAD, News Channel 8 reports the CityKey will be a government-issued photo identification card available to all Chicago residents regardless of immigration status, criminal record, housing status, or gender identity, according to the city clerk’s website.

The station reports State Board of Elections spokesman Matt Dietrich says the final call on what documents to accept rests with local officials.

“There are 109 local election authorities in Illinois,” Dietrich said according to WQAD. “They’re the ones who actually handle the registration, the checking of IDs, and keeping the documentation. We maintain an electronic database of voter registrations that we get from them.”

Dietrich says there is no state requirement to prove citizenship while registering to vote. He’s not expecting a surge in potential voter fraud cases because the process will remain the same.

“When you go to register to vote, you do check a box that attests to your citizenship,” Dietrich said. “You are signing a legal document that says, ‘Yes, I am a citizen.’ But no one who registers to vote is required to bring in, for example, a birth certificate or other proof of citizenship. That’s something that you check the box, and you attest to it.”

Here’s the problem with that “honor system” style of enforcement – it doesn’t work – either due to intentional fraud or misunderstanding of the law.

An analysis by our friends at the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), an election integrity group, found that there are allegedly more than 100,000 noncitizens that are currently registered to vote in Pennsylvania, according to a Philadelphia official's testimony before a Pennsylvania government committee last year.

The Washington Free Beacon’s Joe Schoffstall reports that Al Schmidt, a Philadelphia city commissioner, disclosed a "glitch" in September 2017 at "Pennsylvania Department of Motor Vehicle branch offices was enabling noncitizens to register to vote when they applied for or renewed their driver's licenses."

In early October, then-Pennsylvania secretary of state Pedro Cortes abruptly resigned from his position. PennLive called it a "mystery departure" and noted that, "Cortes's agency also caught flack in September for disclosures that hundreds of legal, non-citizens in Pennsylvania had been improperly offered a chance to register to vote most often while applying for drivers' licenses at PennDOT customer service centers."

During testimony before the Pennsylvania State Government Committee of the House of Representatives in late October, the PILF and Philadelphia officials said that procedural failures invited noncitizen registration in Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) offices. The Pennsylvania Department of State said that an effort to identify noncitizens in the voter registry that have yet to report themselves was underway.

However, once the news of the illegal alien voter registration problem was revealed, Pennsylvania officials clammed-up and refused grant PILF access to the voter registration files.

PILF filed a lawsuit a week ago in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania seeking injunctive relief to compel Pennsylvania's State Department to allow the group access to the information.

"According to Commissioner Schmidt, the Department of State has completed the Noncitizen Matching Analysis," PILF's complaint reads, according to Schoffstall’s reporting. "In his oral testimony, Commissioner Schmidt stated that the analysis revealed over 100,000 matches, meaning that the analysis showed over 100,000 noncitizens who were presently registered to vote in Pennsylvania."

The PILF expanded upon their requests from the Pennsylvania Department of State in December asking for records related to all PennDOT matches in addition to records of "noncitizen self-reported cancellations."

Following the request, the Pennsylvania Department of State notified the PILF that they would not be allowed to view the documents, prompting the lawsuit.

"For months, Pennsylvania bureaucrats have concealed facts about noncitizens registering and voting—that ends today," said J. Christian Adams, president and general counsel of PILF. "Before this lawsuit, the State admitted to a ‘glitch' that exposed thousands of driver's license customers to voter registration offers despite their noncitizen status since the 1990s. The Secretary of State abruptly resigned. DOS officials blocked federal public inspection rights. The PILF hopes to finally get answers about the true scale of noncitizen voting in Pennsylvania and assist lawmakers in crafting reforms that fix it."

"Time has run out on the Pennsylvania's effort to hide embarrassing data about how the State failed citizens and immigrants alike," said PILF's spokesman Logan Churchwell. "The electorate deserves an informed debate on how we address unlawful noncitizen participation in our elections. Seeking this information is step one."

The director of the office of communications at the Pennsylvania Department of State said that they do not comment on litigation.

Pennsylvania is a key battleground state in the upcoming midterm elections, but it is not the only state where PILF has identified aliens illegally registered to vote.

This detailed study by PILF documents more than one thousand aliens on the voter rolls in Virginia, and it provides the government documents with the names.

Here’s the most frightening part; the sample is only eight Virginia counties and doesn’t include the behemoths of Arlington and Fairfax Counties, where election officials refused to cooperate and release the documents.

In just eight Virginia counties, 1,046 alien non-citizens successfully registered to vote. And these are just the aliens who were accidentally caught because when they renewed their driver’s license, they told the truth they were a non-citizen.

The report also reveals some of these aliens have been casting ballots.  From the report:

Even in this small sample, when the voting history of this small sample of alien registrants is examined, nearly 200 verified ballots were cast before they were removed from the rolls. Each one of them is likely a felony.  Again, this is from just a small sampling of Virginia counties. Each of the aliens we have discovered to have registered or voted has likely committed a felony. Will the Justice Department act now that their names, registration records and dates of voting are herein provided?

Voting Scam

My sister-in-law is a Chinese-Canadian. She moved to California and applied for a California drivers license. The clerk asked her if she would like to register to vote. She said, "I am not a U.S. Citizen."

The clerk said, "It's all right. No one cares." The clerk tried to persuade her to register and vote.

She didn't register but noticed other clerks persuading other foreign nationals to register.


I would disagree that aliens are stealing our birthright "the right to vote".
On the contrary it is the progressive socialist democrats that are giving away our birthright, "the right any citizen has to vote in free and fair elections in a sovereign nation". The right of the American citizens to determine their own destiny without any outside influence.
As Tucker Carlson has been reporting, Illinois is the latest to develop a scheme to allow foreign influence to corrupt our election process that is to allow dishonest foreigners both legal immigrants and illegal aliens to vote in our AMERICAN ELECTIONS and insure that we can no longer believe we have free and fair elections.
rahm emmanuel and any politician who votes to allow any system to be set up that could allow non-citizens to vote in any elections should be arrested and tried, convicted and sent to jail.
The Preamble to the Constitution of the United States of America says it all.
WE TE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice , insure domestic tranquility. provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United of America.
It does not say we the people of the world, it was not established for foreigners.
Progressive socialist democrats have either forgotten or are not accepting the importance and the meaning of American citizenship and the meaning of sovereignty. They have totally refused to honor their oath of office required under ARTICLE VI of the Constitution of the United States that they accept the Constitution and the laws of the United States as the law of the land.
