Studies show that a single Democrat law is causing havoc.
There are thousands registered to vote who are noncitizens.
This one horrific law allows illegal immigrants to cast ballots in elections.
The Motor Voter Act was a United States federal law signed into law by President Bill Clinton on May 20, 1993, just over thirty years ago. The goal of the act was to make it easier for people to register to vote and forced states to provide individuals with the opportunity to register to vote at the same time that they apply for a driver’s license.
Rep. Bob Livingston of Louisiana, who led Republican opposition to the bill in 1993, dubbed it “Auto Fraudo.”
According to a May 23 report from the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), the bill has allowed loopholes which make it possible for illegal immigrants to vote in American elections, and could be exploited for fraud.
One report explained that the Motor Voter Act “provides the most common pathway to the voter roll. States that automate Motor Voter, not giving the immigrant the chance to decline registration during their DMV transactions, exacerbate the problem.”
The report found that in Chicago alone, 394 noncitizens were registered to vote in the city over the past twenty years, despite accurately informing election officials of their noncitizen status. Out of these individuals, 20 actually managed to cast a collective total of 85 ballots in legitimate elections.
The average duration for which noncitizens remained on the voter rolls before detection of the error was seven and a half years.
This isn’t just a problem in Chicago.
“PILF reported that Maricopa County, Arizona, has had 222 foreign nationals on voter rolls; Fairfax County, Virginia, 1,334; San Diego County 264; and there were 1,290 more in 10 other counties where records were examined. In Virginia overall, 5,556 noncitizens were removed from voter rolls, but only after 7,474 votes were cast illegally. These numbers are only a sampling, as PILF must do painstaking public information requests jurisdiction by jurisdiction — and its reports cover only the instances where the erroneous registrations and votes eventually, mercifully, were discovered and fixed by state officials.” The Washington Examiner reported Monday.
These are only the cases that were caught and fixed by state officials.
“The failures of Motor Voter are clearly visible in sanctuary cities,” PILF President and General Counsel J. Christian Adams said. “A terrible combination of bad Motor Voter enforcement, increasing chatter over noncitizen voting rights, and simple disregard for immigration law creates an environment for illegal voting. Bad actors and unassuming immigrants are caught up in this system all the same. Congress must update and fix the flaws in the Motor Voter system.”
