North Carolina Finds Hundreds Of Illegals On Voter Rolls

Republicans often say the point of Democrats pushing a pathway to citizenship is strictly to create more Democrat voters. In this case, what you have are illegals giving an Executive “amnesty” who suddenly show up on the voter rolls

(Breitbart[1]) With the North Carolina U.S. Senate race in a dead heta, state election officials say they have discovered 145 names on the voting rolls who are ineligible to vote because they are illegal immigrants who have been granted President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals status.

According to a Winston-Salem Journal[2] report, the State Board of Elections discovered the potential illegal voters Tuesday night when the N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles ran a search for DACA licenses. The 145 DACA recipients whose names appear on the SBOE’s voting rolls will be sent letters requesting documentation that they are citizens, the report noted.

The Journal[3] notes that it is likely more ineligible people may still remain on the voting rolls.

Nearly 10,000 names on the rolls are tagged by the DMV as “legally present,” according to elections and transportation officials. But that doesn’t mean that all 10,000 are ineligible to vote at this time. These are license holders who were not U.S. citizens when they got a license. They may have been green-card holders, foreign workers or foreign students, for example.

Most have become U.S. citizens since getting a license, according to an estimate by elections officials based on a sample of the overall list.

Asking for ID could help stop some of this, since driver’s licenses[4] for the DACA illegals say “Legal Presence, No Lawful Status”. Provided that Democrats working the voting centers would actually stop the usage (there’s where the requirement for voter ID really breaks down: workers who are Democrats).

“We want to know how such a large number of non-U.S. citizens were ever registered to vote in the first place,” Jay DeLancy, executive director of the Voter Integrity Project of North Carolina, told[5] “There is clearly a system failure here and we need the Board of Elections and the DMV to help the Legislature and the public understand where the problem lies.”

One has to wonder how many ineligible legal and illegal aliens are registered to vote in the other 49 States (or, in Obama’s case, the other 57) and have plans to vote. I suspect many of these DACA illegals weren’t even aware they were registered.

For those who went through the proper steps to become a legal US citizen, welcome! Enjoy your right to vote! Vote wisely. Know the issues and candidates.
