Battle lines about voting practices have been drawn, and Democrats are trying to leverage the COVID-19 crisis by opening a veritable Pandora’s Box of mail-in fraud.
Democrats and Republicans have seemingly never been on the same page when it comes to legitimate voting practices. During the Jim Crow era, Southern Democrats threw up procedural roadblocks to prevent African-Americans from voting in elections. Having successfully courted inner-city black voters, Democrats turned their attention to illegal immigrants.
Ironically, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her radical progressives seek to undermine African-American political interests by pulling in illegals into the mix. These are the same undocumented Central Americans that undercut working-class job opportunity and suppress hourly wages. If the likes of Pelosi and New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) get their way, mail-in votes will open the floodgates for non-citizens to vote in the November elections.
“You want to hold up the bill because you want to change election law for November, because you think that gives you some political benefit?” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy fired off at Pelosi via the media. “That’s disgusting to me. Stop worrying about politics. Worry about what’s in front of us. And that’s the health of the nation and our economy.”
During the 2016 election, widespread voter fraud surfaced in primarily Democrat strongholds. When President Donald Trump formed a committee to review state-by-state voting practices, Democrat-held states refused to hand over voting data for analysis.
“The probability of 45,000 illegal duplicate votes is the low end of the spectrum, and it does not even account for other types of fraud such as ineligible voting by non-citizens and felons and absentee ballot fraud,” the Heritage Foundation reported. “To put this number of fraudulent votes in perspective, Hillary Clinton won New Hampshire by fewer than 3,000 votes out of over 700,000 cast. Just this number of duplicate votes alone has the power to swing state results and, in turn, elections.”
Given the power lust and seething angry festering in the Democratic Party since losing the White House in 2016, it should come as no surprise they are pushing hard for new ways to inflate their ballots. President Trump enjoys exceeding high approval ratings, and has followed through on his 2016 campaign promises. On the other side, Joe Biden appears to be a more flawed candidate than Hillary. For all of the former First Lady’s flaws, she was at least able to construct a sentence in real time.
Early data on a potential mail-in scheme that Pelosi is trying to include on COVID-19 stimulus packages would reportedly result in states such as New Mexico sending out upwards of 1,700 ballots to dead people. There is currently no check in place to automatically knock deceased voters off the rolls.
“We know from our data that New Mexico’s voter roll is not maintained to the standard needed for an automatic, all-mail election,” Public Interest Legal Foundation President J. Christian Adams reportedly said. “There are concrete solutions. But, rushing headlong to vote-by-mail is not one of them.”
If the election were mail-in, nothing prevents Democrats from enticing non-citizens from filling out these ballots. The only consequence illegals face is deportation, and that would occur if Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) discovered their presence anyway. The persuasive argument would be that if Democrats win the White House, policy reverts to open borders, and they would defund ICE. That’s a keen incentive for illegal immigrants to conspire with Democrats on mail-in voter fraud.
