EXCLUSIVE: Hundreds of Illegals Have Registered to Vote in Bexar County [Texas]
WOAI am radio ^ | May 16, 2007 | By Jim Forsyth

Posted on 05/17/2007 9:55:01 AM PDT by Islander7

Hundreds of illegal immigrants have registered to vote in Bexar County in recent years and dozens of them have actually cast ballots, canceling out the votes of U.S. citizens, 1200 WOAI news will report Thursday morning.

Figures obtained by 1200 WOAI news shows 303 illegals successfully registered to vote, and at least 41 cast ballots in various elections.

Bexar County Elections Administrator Jackie Callanan confirmed the figures, but she says a new form of voter registration card, which requires people to swear they are citizens when they register, should help cut the problem, because people who vote illegally can be charged with perjury.

And the county has some sly ways to catch them.

"...While not taking a position on the legislation, Callanan warned that any law that required that people present ID at the polling place might actually discourage people from voting.

"It will be cumbersome to have them presented at the polls," she said. "The lines will be longer. It will require an additional check."

Some Democrats in the Legislature have fought the proposal, saying it would keep the poor and minorities, who generally vote Democratic, away from the polls. A key Democratic Senator and Dewhurst got into an argument on the floor of the Senate over the emotional issue..."

Anyone wonder why the dems are wanting the 'fairness' doctrine? You won't see this in the MSM; only on local AM radio.

Gosh, it's not as if they are not already breaking the law.

Remember, by then they will all be legal, all 22 million.

Do we need to say more? So much for what the natural born Americans want.

If it can be proven, isn’t the strategy for registered voters to sue, claiming disenfrancisement under the Constitution due to the dilution of their vote at the ballot box by the illegals? The settlement would not be monetary but rather by injunction, demanding that the voter registration office ensure eligibility of the registration base.

CNBC is reporting that the Senate negotiators have a “deal.” Scant details, but it sounds like a pathway to citizenship,some chain migration, must return home within 8 years (laugh), pay a fine in exchange for some alleged toughening of enforcement at the border.

"Why would any Texan oppose legislation that ensures only U.S. citizens vote in elections?"

Because they stand to benefit from the illegal votes.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but Virginia has some of the worst voter fraud by illegals. What they show at the polls are illegally acquired drivers licenses (ironically, gotten at the same time as the motor-voter form on the back of the license application registers them).

Groups like LaRaza sign them up at fairs and outside supermarkets with no checks on citizenship - they just tell them to check off the block that says they are US citizen and resident of Virginia.

Webb beat Allen for Senator last year by 9000 votes - there are thousands more illegals on the voter rolls than that, and they all voted for Webb. Now that the illegals in the shadows will become citizens, once Red Virginia will be solidly back in the Democrat camp like it was for a hundred years after the Civil War.

All those Freepers who want amnesty and open borders so that they don't have to cut their lawns or clean their toilets, stand by. In a few dozen years and after you are unemployed by these former illegals and the millions of new illegals to come now that the gates are open and perpetual amnesties will follow, your kids will be cleaning the toilets of the kids of the illegals who took your jobs.

One saving grace - some reporters' jobs are now being outsourced to India. How wonderfully ironic.

Isn't WOAI management guilty of committing a hate crime? Their FCC license should be suspended, and the owners and management should be tried and sent to prison.

I suppose that veteran election integrity inspector Jimmy Carter will give his blessing to the illegal immigrant voting registration, because it helps the ‘Rats rig elections.

The Democrats want to import as many illegals as they can, and make them legal so they can pander welfare to them in exchange for votes.

...people who vote illegally can be charged with perjury.

But they won't be. If the local DA tries, the ACLU, MeChaChaCha, LaRacist, and all the Illegal Alien protection groups will sue.

LOL!

Here and in other states illegal aliens merely phone in and are sent a voter registration application card - that they simply self-certify and sign that they are a US citizen and send it in


Walk in applicants are required to show proof of US citizenship IDs here

Then phone in prior to the election and request an mail-in absentee vote!

Representation without taxation or citizenship!

Then simply vote by mail for a democrat


Now President Bush, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, and the US Congress will have to deal with the legal American citizens who may now start to pay federal, state, local income taxes, Social Security, Medicare deductions like illegal aliens do and the Clintons did while in Arkansas and were caught by the IRS after he was elected - but they never paid one penny in penalties!

You are absolutely correct. The only reason they don’t vote now is that they are afraid of being caught and deported. Once they no longer have to fear exposure as an illegal alien, you can be sure they’ll all be at the polls.

How do they KNOW illegals registered?
Who allowed the illegals to register and why is it just now coming out? Who blew the whistle?

Who allowed illegals to vote?
Who blew the whistle about that?
If they KNOW illegals registered, do they know WHO the illegals are? IF they don’t know who they are, how do they know they are illegal? If they DO know who they are, why aren’t they trying to arrest them? What is the punishment for registering to vote if you are an illegal alien?

Isn’t it illegal to vote when you are not a citizen? Wait, I forgot, they are already breaking the law by being here illegally and are not being punished for that. What harm will illegal voting do?

I believe that 2008 will be the first time that the illegal vote will be known.

Is there nothing we can do about it?

Not really, but the American people just are no longer up for any fight.

INTERVIEW WITH HOUSTON ILLEGAL
Rochester Democrat and Chronical
May 7, 2007
Jim Moore, for Houston TV station
FR Posted on 05/13/2007 11:18:54 AM PDT by momf

This seems to be the rational and plan for Mexico...no wonder they think the SPP and TransTexasCorridor are such good ideas! Apparently the people of Mexico think they have the "right" to cross anytime they want, and that, since they think we stole Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California, they have the right to free health care, schooling, and social security. At least until they take back what we've stolen!

Jim: Juan, I see that you and thousands of other protesters are marching in the streets to demonstrate for your cause. Exactly what is your cause and what do you expect to accomplish by this protest?
Juan: We want our rights. We will show you how powerful we are. We will bring Houston to its knees!

Jim: What rights?
Juan: Our right to live here...legally. Our right to get all the benefits you get.

Jim: Why did you come?
Juan: For work. I can earn as much in a month as I could in a year in Mexico. Besides, I get free health care, our Mexican children can go to school free, if I lose my job I will get Welfare, and someday I will have the Social Security. Nothing like that in Mexico!

Jim: Did you feel badly about breaking our immigration laws when you came?
Juan: No! Why should I feel bad? I have a right to be here. I have a right to amnesty. I paid lots of money for my Social Security and Green Cards.

Jim: How did you acquire those documents?
Juan: From a guy in Dallas. He charged me a lot of money too.

Jim: Did you know that those documents were forged?
Juan: It is of no matter. I have a right to be here and work.

Jim: What is the “right” you speak of?
Juan: The right of all Aliens. It is found in your Constitution. Read it!

Jim: I have read it, but I do not remember it saying anything about rights for Aliens.
Juan: It is in that part where it says that all men have Alien rights, like the right to pursue happiness. I wasn’t happy in Mexico, so I came here.

Jim: I think you are referring to the declaration of Independence and that document speaks to unalienable rights. Not Alien rights.
Juan: Whatever.

Jim: Since you are demanding to become an American citizen, why then are you carrying a Mexican Flag?
Juan: Because I am Mexican.

Jim: But you said you want to be given amnesty. To become a US citizen.
Juan: No. This is not what we want. This is our country, a part of Mexico that you Gringos stole from us. We want it returned to its rightful owner.

Jim: Juan, you are standing in Texas. After wining the war with Mexico, Texas became a Republic, and later Texans voted to join the USA. It was not stolen from Mexico.

Juan: That is a Gringo lie. Texas was stolen. So was California, New Mexico and Arizona. It is just like all the other stuff you Gringos steal, like oil and babies. You are a country of thieves.

I can attest to that. I used to work as an chief of precinct and we have been told repeatedly that the DMV has a horrible track record of screening motor-voter applications.

More over, the ID you show doesn’t even have to be a picture ID and they can just sign a form if they forget it.

The solution I think is to purge the voter roles annually (or at least every Presidential Election) and require people to renew their registration. This doesn’t mean an online form, or a motor-voter form, but actually going to the voter registration office, and proving your address, residency and citizen status.

This proposal shouldn’t be inconvenient for anyone who takes voting seriously, but it will allow people who are deceased or no longer in the area to expire from the voter rolls.
