Illegal Aliens Have More Incentive Than Ever to Vote in U.S. Elections
As for those illegal aliens who fall within the president’s amnesty programs, they now have an increased ability to register and vote due to their newfound eligibility for federal ID, including driver’s licenses and Social Security numbers.
Individuals with a driver’s license or a Social Security number may register to vote by simply attesting that they are a U.S. citizen. According to the Social Security Administration, already 541,000 DACA-recipients have been allotted Social Security numbers. But most have them anyway.
The SSA also estimates that 75 percent of all illegal aliens use either fake Social Security numbers or legitimate numbers stolen from legal residents. If a candidate or a ballot measure offered to create new amnesty benefits or to make permanent DACA or DAPA-beneficiaries' “temporary” status, is it crazy to think a large number of them would come out to vote?
The left already encourages them to and under the president’s new “priorities” memo, and most would probably never be charged or deported anyway.
So what are Republicans afraid of? As the Supreme Court has told us:
Confidence in the integrity of our electoral processes is essential to the functioning of our participatory democracy … Voters who fear their legitimate votes will be outweighed by fraudulent ones will feel disenfranchised.
Disenfranchisement. That’s what we’re afraid of, Mrs. Clinton.
