Noncitizen voter hunt targets Hispanics, NPAs but not GOP, whites
Miami Herald ^ | 12 May 2012 | Marc Caputo and Patricia Mazzei

Hispanic, Democratic and independent-minded voters are the most likely to be targeted in a state hunt to remove thousands of noncitizens from Florida’s voting rolls, a Miami Herald computer analysis of elections records has found.

Whites and Republicans are disproportionately the least-likely to face the threat of removal, the analysis of a list of more than 2,600 potential noncitizens shows. The list was first compiled by the state and furnished to county election supervisors and then The Herald.

The numbers change by the day. The state’s Division of Elections says it initially identified roughly 180,000 potential noncitizens by performing a search of a computer database that doesn’t have the most-updated information.

About 58 percent of those identified as potential noncitizens are Hispanics, Florida’s largest ethnic immigrant population. They make up just 13 percent of the overall 11.3 million active registered voters.

Those who have been flagged as potential noncitizens by the state are being contacted by county election supervisors. Many legitimate voters aren’t happy with what they see as a needless hassle from a government using bad data.

“I’m upset, because if someone is an American citizen, it is his right to vote. How can they be asking for this?” said Juan Artabe, a 41-year-old Democrat from Cuba who said he became a citizen in 2009.

“Very poor job by the elections department,” Artabe said. He said he was contacted last week by the Miami-Dade elections office and sent in a copy of his citizenship papers so he wasn’t struck from the voter rolls.

About two-thirds of the potential noncitizen matches so far have been in Miami-Dade, the state’s largest county with the biggest immigrant population.

KEYWORDS: voterfraud
The election-year effort, led by a Republican-appointed secretary of state, has increasingly become a focus of concern among Democrats, liberals and civil-liberties groups. They worry that the state could wind up removing lawful voters from the rolls................What they worry about is not being able to steal the elections.

One of Alinsky’s rules must be to always pretend that things that are simply common sense must be the result of some sort of racist conspiracy.

Duh!

Whites and Republicans are the least likely to engage in crime - Period!

Not surprising they are least impacted by the voter roll investigation.

Conclusion: Culture counts.

The state’s quest to get rid of noncitizens voters this election year has turned up 180,000 hits — but it incidentally targets minorities and Democrats while giving white Republicans a pass.........................That's 180,000 illegal votes most likely for the DemocRats

This is hardly a revelation. Republicans don’t commit voter fraud, Democrats do.

When was that last time you saw a “Voter Registration Drive” in any predominantly white community, school or church anywhere in the USA? That’s cuz it bever happened.

How does the “Miami Herald” think that these fraudulant voters get registered in the first place? Magic?

Liberals want sooooo bad for it to be bias - rather than the more obvious - the obvious it's overwhelmingly democrats who cheat...

Maybe a coincidence, maybe it's just me but I've never seen a case of republican voter fraud. If it exists, it's rare indeed.

The only way they are not democratic votes is if they punch the wrong box.

“What they worry about is not being able to steal the elections. “

So they take the Herald’s ‘study’ to a Clinton or Obama judge and say “disproportionate impact”.

Everything gets ‘stayed’ until the case gets to the Supreme Court some time after the election...

What a country, what a legal system!

Of course you have to add the zombie vote to that and the altzheimer and nursing home patients that the democrats vote for. As I recall in the 2000 Florida vote fiasco a democrat party worker was caught out and about in the posession of one of their punchcard machines and couldn’t explain what he was doing with it. I think he was taking it to nursing homes where the patients had been registered and not absentee voted and was HELPING them to vote. Like the gentleman in Ohio and I forget which Pres. election, was being HELPED to vote and he started protesting that he was a Republican and had never voted democrat in his life, so the HELPER beat him up.

Duh, whites and Republicans are least likely to be illegal immigrants, who are the target of the voter fraud investigations.

How long before Holder and his Voting Rights Commission step in here?

Where have you been?
Holder already has stepped in, fighting hard against voter ID laws in states that did not have them, prior to the 2008 elections.

I have always had to show my voter registration card and/or ID to vote in Florida, for as long as I can remember.

Perhaps it is only because I am registered as a Republican?

Have my civil rights been violated for all those years?

Why are dem constituents most likely to be involved in voter fraud? Because they have community organizers who engage in it.

Are there any community organizers in white communities, with phoney-baloney registration operations and busses that shuttle people to the polls?

This assembly-line fraud has got to stop. Retail fraud might happen despite all efforts, but this wholesale fraud threatens the nation.

These guys are pulling Hugo Chavez stuff.

Did a Cuban-Cambodian found this country?

How many illegal Swedes are here vs. Mexicans?

I know, it’s profiling.

Never profiling for Affirmative Action hiring, college entry or job promotion...but look for a Muzzie at the airport or Paco at the voting station and you are a RACIST PROFILER.

This reminds me of what Rush said, if God decided to end the world tomorrow, the liberals would say, women and minorities hardest hit. The same applies here.

I suppose we'll now have to have affirmative action in our voter registration: Throw off one White for every illegally registered Hispanic?

Don't these idiot journalists realize that people get on the list due to likelihood of being illegally registered, not by skin color?

The bigger question in Juan’s case is when did he start voting?
