Expert: It’s “Fair to Assume” Illegal Aliens Will Get Mail-in Ballots in California
California grants illegal aliens driver’s licenses, allows them to pay in-state tuition, has set aside millions in stimulus money from them, and, as you’re all aware, has “sanctuary cities” to protect them from being deported.
With perks like those, it’s no wonder the State is home to roughly 20% of the nation’s illegal immigrants (and similarly, roughly 17% of California’s entire population is illegal).
Even in a world without voter fraud, such a sizable illegal population has an impact on politics because the Census lacks a citizenship question. All population is counted, legal or illegal, thus boosting representation among districts with a high concentration of illegals. If only U.S. citizens were counted as population in the Census, Republicans would have 24 more seats in the House than they currently do (and 24 more electoral votes). Granted, this isn’t entirely due to illegal immigration (as legal immigrants who are not yet citizens are also counted as population), but it does contribute.
Given all that California already gives illegals, you know that if they could allow them to vote in national elections, they would. And we may see that in November thanks to mail-in ballots.
According to Breitbart:
Government Accountability Institute Research Director Eric Eggers says it is “fair to assume” that many illegal aliens will receive mail-in ballots in California for the 2020 election thanks to a plan by Gov. Gavin Newsom. Eggers said California’s automatic voter registration coupled with providing driver’s licenses to illegal aliens opens its elections to a host of fraud.
That fraud, Eggers expects, will be exacerbated by Newsom’s statewide mail-in voting plan for the 2020 election.
“This is really where the left shows a level of hypocrisy, which they’re not regularly held to account,” Eggers said. “What if the ballots go to illegal immigrants that willingly or unwillingly ended up on the voter rolls and maybe they just don’t even know they’re not supposed to be casting ballots? Because remember, elsewhere in California and elsewhere nationally, it is legal for noncitizens to vote in certain local elections.”
“Basically, what you’ve got is this hodgepodge of a lack of oversight, lacks regulation, and confusion by the general public,” Eggers said. “And oh, by the way, there’s a global pandemic, so many people are focused on other things at the moment. And so … here come all the ballots, and yes, many of the people that will get the ballots will be legal voters, but many of those ballots will end up somewhere other than in the hands of legal [voters], and that’s exactly where the recipe for fraud can occur.”
“You’ve got this system where you know you’ve got over a million illegal immigrants in California that have driver’s licenses,” Eggers continued. “I think it’s fair to assume that a good number of those inadvertently or intentionally ended up on the voter rolls, and those people are about to be receiving a mail-in ballot.”
While this doesn’t guarantee that fraud will occur, it’s a strong possibility, and one that California’s liberal leadership has no incentive whatsoever to fight.
