After the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals refused to grant a stay to the Justice Department in its current attempts to stop law enforcement against illegal aliens, the Justice Department has announced that they will not continue their appeal. This would seem to mean that DHS will now be able to process illegals, arresting them, detaining them, and then deporting them. But the prohibitive cost to taxpayers is likely to delay the process of law enforcement, thus giving the Democrats at least a temporary victory, for as long as these illegals remain in the US, there is the ultimate possibility that the Administration will be able to put into place a second "back door" strategy for keeping them here, giving them benefits, and ultimately getting them to the voting booths.

Although now prevented from conferring amnesty on illegals, the Administration still has the option to grant political asylum. The Administration must show cause to grant asylum, but cause is determined by the Justice Department. Asylum is meant for individuals and, only in rare cases, for larger groups escaping violent tyranny. It was never meant as a tool to import vast numbers of illegal aliens to take part in US elections! Whether they sneak across the border or are bussed in, as the Obama Administration is doing with Somalis, once granted asylum, the process of giving driver's licenses will follow. And, although they are not legal citizens, per se, therefore, do not have the right to vote—or even to register to vote under penalty of law!—they will nonetheless have access to both, regardless of their status, aided by the US government to commit voter fraud.

It is estimated that between seven and twenty million illegals are already in the country. Some estimate that the number could be much larger. If allowed to vote, they would have significant impact on the outcomes of US elections. And, since the Obama administration is actually inviting illegals to "come out of the shadows" and offering them not only residence, but benefits, they will register with the party that gave them this extravagant gift. Thus, Democrats will have created an entire new voting block to insure their continued election to power for generations to come. This is massive voter fraud being perpetrated by the US government against its citizens.

The facts and figures from 2012 alone are alarming and the situation has grown worse since then. According to various watchdog organizations concerned with the integrity of American voters' rights:

  • 46 states have prosecuted or convicted cases of voter fraud.
  • More than 24 million voter registrations are invalid, yet remain on the rolls nation-wide.
  • There are over 1.8 million dead voters still eligible on the rolls across the country.
  • More than 2.75 million Americans are registered to vote in more than one state.
  • True The Vote recently found 99 cases of potential felony interstate voter fraud.
  • Maryland affiliates of True The Vote uncovered cases of people registering and voting after their deaths and uncovered more than 348,000 dead people on the rolls in 27 states. California: 49,000, Florida: 30,000, Texas: 28,500, Michigan: 25,000, Illinois: 24,000
  • 12 Indiana counties have more registered voters than residents.
  • The Ohio Secretary of State admitted that multiple Ohio counties have more registered voters than residents.
  • Federal records showed 160 counties in 19 states have over 100 percent voter registration.

The enormity of this problem has caused many organizations to react against the Government's effort to commit voter fraud. Currently, the Florida New Majority Education Fund, Democratic Party of Florida and the National Council of La Raza are currently under investigation for alleged voter registration fraud.

Several organizations are trying to make them Americans of the dire urgency of this problem. One such organization headed by Catherine Engelbrecht is True the Vote. Its objective is eliminating voter fraud and securing the integrity of the US vote by supporting voter ID laws and other measures to ensure that voter registrations and voting itself is legal.

In an article entitled As Illegals Receive Their Driver's Licenses, They're Being Signed Up to Vote, author Sara Noble states that True The Vote worries that illegals will determine who becomes the next US President. She states, "When non-citizens receive their driver's licenses, they are at the same time getting signed up to vote." According to Ms. Noble, True The Vote has found two relevant issues that must be addressed to prevent illegal registration. The first is the physical appearance of the image on the driver's license issued to illegals. This can affect the ability of the poll worker to determine an illegal voter."

I had personal experience with this some years ago, when I took my NY driver's test. I was told by my examiner that some Asians and Hispanics looked enough alike that they would send a stand-in to take tests for them. Consequently, he was instructed to ask whether the person named on the learner's permit was actually the person taking the test. This illustrates how easy it is for illegals to vote once they have been registered. And if they are granted driver's licenses voter registration is more or less automatic despite the illegality. If no one is allowed to ask for their IDs at the polling place the prospect of massive fraud is guaranteed.

The Election Assistance Commission (EAC) an independent agency of the Federal government charged with the responsibility for maintaining the integrity of American voting, has responsibilities for disseminating to states various methods for insuring that only legitimate voters cast votes. It tests, certifies and monitors voting equipment oversees mail-in voter registration forms. Because it is answerable to the Administration in power, the EAC has been criticized openly in the press during Republican administrations for applying immigration guidelines strictly. But Democratic administrations the effort goes in the opposite direction.

The EAC's guidelines offer States alternatives to enforcing citizenship requirements without asking for additional information from Federal Form applicants. One alternative
is coordinating with driver licensing agencies suggesting careful examination of records presented when someone votes. Thus, the EAC places the burden of possible fraudulent voting on election officials. But often Election Officials do not scrutinize records carefully. Some temporary non-citizen driver's licenses look very much like official driver's licenses making the problem worse.

Other "alternative means" of enforcing citizenship requirements include the threat of criminal prosecution as a "deterrent" to unlawful registration or voting by non-citizens, but this is hardly an alternative when election officials do not
look up criminal records. Ironically, to many illegals, threat of imprisonment is absurd, since jail is better than conditions in some of their native countries.

One step in resolving the voter fraud being deliberately created by the Obama Administration is to rescind the National Voter Registration Act of 1993, also known as The Motor Voter Act. This legislation originated when legitimate voters were prohibited from voting based on race or origin, a civil rights violation. It was thought that making it easier to register to vote would also stop these violations. NVRA requires state governments to offer voter registration to any eligible person who applies for or renews a driver's license, through use of a federal voter registration form. The law also prohibits states from removing registered voters from the voter rolls unless certain criteria are met.

This seems reasonable on the surface, but it has limited effect if ineligible voters are not recognized. In the US, non-citizens are forbidden to vote or even to register to vote, under severe legal penalties that include deportation. But the Federal government removed the check box asking about citizenship from its form. This combination effectively enables non-citizens to register to vote automatically when they get driver's licenses. Moreover, there is an effort by the Federal government to prevent officials at voting booths from asking for IDs. Effectively, the government encourages voter fraud by way of Motor Voter.

This law should be rescinded and proof of citizenship required when voting. This would protect the integrity of the vote to qualified US citizens by eliminating deliberate fraud by the US government against legal US citizens. Moreover, states should be allowed to purge voter files of all illegal voters, including dead persons and non-citizens. Whether these changes will take place in future administrations is unknown, but the wisdom of vigilantly guarding the integrity of US votes and restoring control over elections to the people of the US cannot be argued against.
