5000 illegal aliens voted in election last November

by Jack Minor

 

In last year’s Senate race nearly 5000 illegal aliens cast their vote in the election.

 The revelation comes from Colorado Secretary of State, Scott Gessler. Testifying before the House Administration Committee, Gessler said his department conducted a study comparing the state’s voter registration database against driver’s license records.

 After doing so they discovered 12,000 illegal aliens living in the state who were registered to vote. Of these, 5,000 actually cast votes in the last election.

 Gessler told Rep. Gregg Harper, the panel’s Republican chairman, the study was a ‘disturbing wake-up call” and hoped it would prompt every state to verify its procedures to prevent illegal voting.

 Responding to the report, Harper stated, “We simply cannot have an electoral system that allows thousands of non-citizens to violate the law and vote in our elections. We must do more to protect the integrity of our electoral processes.”

 The report of illegal voting was disputed by Texas Democrat, Rep. Charles Gonzales, who said it was “impossible to provide precise numbers” on the total number of illegals registered to vote. Without precise numbers he felt the entire study was to be called into question.

 Gessler told the committee he would like to create a registration system requiring voters to provide written proof of their citizenship.

 Measures to do so have been attempted in several states, however, they often face stiff opposition from liberal democrat groups who claim the requirements are discriminatory. Illegals rarely vote for Republicans.

 

Steve Moreno, Weld County Clerk and Recorder, said his department was unsure if they had any illegals vote in the last election. Moreno said his department does not have the resources to check the immigration status of voters, however if he is made aware of any fraudulent voters he will gladly turn the information over to the District Attorney’s office. He went on to say “there is always room for improvement in how we register voters.”

 

Under current law, a person registering to vote declares they are a citizen and eligible to vote. There is no requirement to produce documentation, the process depends solely on the word of the voter signing the form. Falsely registering to vote is a felony, which disallows future voting or office-holding.

    It is very irresponsible of you to keep telling this story without providing all the facts. You keep treating the people of our state as stupid too. We are far from it.

    The facts are that 12000 people did not check the box when they registered to vote stating they are US citizens. Are they citizens? We dont know as the laws in our state prevent the question from being asked. We also do not know if they are illegals or legal residents and neither have the right to vote.

    The Dems killed a bill the GOP ran this session to find out. So not sure how the state is going to know either. We only wish both parties would stop the nonsense and allow the question to be asked to each person; are you a citizen? legal resident? Illegal? and once they answer it; decide then who has the right to be on the voter roles and if they arent and they are on the voter rolls; they need to come off (and we hope no close elections were effected by it.) They need to ask the question before they disenfranchise any voter as well though if the person doesnt respond in 90 days say; then we dont have a problem removing them from the rolls.

    Just please stop reporting this as you are. Its bad enough when the KS SOS Kris Kobach is telling this on TOTN on NPR but you are in our state so hope you have more of a moral obligation to tell the full story.

    Gessler’s methodology doesn’t even make it to first base.

    There are ways to get these numbers right, but Gessler is taking the lazy way out to create fuel for his demogoguery. He need to conduct verification sampling, correlation studies, and controls to validate numbers that actually mean something. I doubt very much he even knows what these things are, or has every actually conducted a valid survey. Why is he throwing good money after bad? It’s all just red meat, bread, and circuses.

  • Iam not going to vote for anyone who does not run for sendimg all illegals and their children bak to mexico period!If everybody would do this we would have millions of dollars and millions of jobs come back to america!
