Bill Clinton's speech was a little discussed point at the DNC last week and he garnered more attention for falling asleep during Secretary Clinton's big moment than most anything he addressed. What many missed is his call for illegal aliens to vote for Hillary in November. Trump has been lambasted by the liberal media all week for stating that he believes this election will be rigged. Yet his opponent’s former President-husband asking all illegals to commit vote fraud, can you really blame him? (emphasis in the original)
Speaking directly to illegal aliens, Clinton stated to an applauding audience of delegates that “if you love this country, you’re working hard, you’re paying taxes and you’re obeying the law and you’d like to become a citizen, you should choose immigration reform over somebody that wants to send you back.” Unfortunately for Bill, illegal aliens (and non-citizens in general) aren’t supposed to be ‘choosing’ anyone. Like in every other country in the world, here in America only citizens are supposed to vote.
Despite its unprecedented foreign-born population (currently over 40 million), the US protects against illegal voter-registration by relying on an attestation system. Under federal law, provided one can show a driver’s license or social security number, all a non-citizen need to do if they really want to vote is check a box “confirming” they’re an eligible voter. In other words, it’s an honor system. This isn’t common in other arguably less important areas. Under legislation (oddly enough) signed by Bill Clinton, protective measures were put in place to ensure illegal aliens couldn’t apply for federal benefits. Rather than putting trust in the applicants themselves, the so-called Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements program was installed to help federal agencies confirm the immigration-status of all benefit-seeking applicants (illegal aliens, who by definition have no immigration records, cannot be identified on the system and are therefore blocked from receiving benefits). Despite the fact that an illegal vote casted is a citizen-vote cancelled, similar defensive measures are apparently not seen as warranted in the area of voting.
On both the state and federal levels, incentives for illegal alien-voting abound. State bills offering in-state tuition, driver’s and professional licenses, illegal alien-“sanctuary”, etc. are currently being debated in various parts of the country. For those illegal aliens who fall within President Obama’s blanket grants of deferred action (2 million for the renewable 2012 DACA program and 5 million for the currently frozen DAPA program), their incentives are obvious. With regards to DACA-recipients, they also have a newfound ability to register and vote due to their eligibility for federal identification documents, including driver’s licenses and SSNs. According to the Social Security Administration (SSA), as of FY2014, 541,000 DACA-recipients had been allotted SSNs. Immediately after the 2014 DAPA amnesty was announced, Sen. Rob Portman of the swing-state of Ohio sent a letter to the president chastising his action for “afford[ing] potentially thousands of non-citizens in Ohio the opportunity to willfully or negligently register to vote and to vote” and for making voter protection in his state “significantly more difficult.”
Common sense election reforms are being rolled back to ensure that fraud will thrive. The RNLA issued a press release yesterday discussing the attacks on Trump for questioning the process. For anyone paying attention to the unethical and deceitful actions of the Clintons over their careers, it makes sense to pay really close attention. How can a former President encourage vote fraud?
