WASHINGTON, DC, Nov 18 — It appears that flooding the nation with illegal immigrants is a way to significantly increase the numbers of future Democratic voters, according to Roman Balmakov, host of the Epoch Times TV show, Facts Matter. He reports that recently “the DC council passed a new bill, allowing non-citizens, including illegal aliens, to vote in local elections. Not federal elections, mind you, but local elections. These are things like mayor, council member, attorney general, school board member, as well as any initiative, referendum, or recall election that happens to come up.”
Most believe that the Washington DC bill is not likely to achieve approval; when New York City enacted a law to allow illegals to vote last year, the State Supreme Court declared it to be unconstitutional.
Meanwhile, Congressman August Pfluger [R-TX] has introduced a bill that would prevent non-citizens from voting. “If you’re in the United States illegally, you don’t have the right to vote—period. Liberals in Washington, D.C. who want to allow non-citizens to vote are putting the integrity of our election system at risk. My bill will put a stop to it. Americans deserve confidence in our elections and to know that only legal citizens are voting in the United States of America.”
Pfluger’s colleague in the House, Jeff Duncan [R-SC], meanwhile, is seeking to pass legislation that would make the practice of allowing non-citizens to vote illegal. Duncan says “Noncitizen voting dilutes the value of citizenship, normalizes illegal immigration, and invites foreign nationals to interfere in U.S. elections. The idea of non-citizen voting is absurd. If an American citizen moved to another country, would he expect to have a say in how that country is run without first becoming a citizen? Of course not.
Whether the Washington DC bill will be enacted is up in the air for now, but it might signal what could happen in the future. According to the Federation for American Immigration Reform [FAIR] “In 2014, a study estimated that approximately 6.4 percent of non-citizens voted in the 2008 presidential election and that 2.2 percent voted in the 2010 midterm elections…there is evidence that both foreign nationals who are lawfully present in the United States and illegal aliens – who have already broken the law by their unauthorized presence in the country – have voted in recent elections. During the 2016 election cycle, non-citizens were discovered on voter registration rolls in both Virginia and Pennsylvania. And the Office of the U.S. Attorney for the Western District of New York charged a Canadian woman with making a false claim to citizenship after she registered and voted in more than 20 elections.”
A while back Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick was criticized for calling the massive surge of illegal immigrants who were crossing the border, a “silent revolution.” His concern was dismissed by Democrats in the Lone Star State who called his remarks “vile, incendiary and dangerous.” However, Patrick’s apprehensions seem to have been validated with the passage of time. He made his remarks during an interview with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham in September of 2021 just eight months after President Biden took office, in the early days of the continuing, unrelenting surge of illegals at our southern border.
As he put it “[Democrats] are allowing this year probably 2 million [immigrants], that’s who we apprehended, maybe another million, into this country. At least in 18 years even if they all don’t become citizens before then and can vote, in 18 years if every one of them has two or three children, you’re talking about millions and millions and millions of new voters and they will thank the Democrats and Biden for bringing them here. Who do you think they’re going to vote for?”
