In a report released by the Virginia Voters Alliance based on findings from the Public Interest Legal Foundation, more than 1,000 aliens have been free to vote illegally in Virginia.
The report found that The 1,046 Virginia voters may just be the “tip of the iceberg”, since this number is only from eight Virginia localities, and there are likely to be more in others. The report found that the most illegal votes were cast in 2012, and 2008, both years when Obama won a presidential election in the state.
Although it is a felony for non-citizens to vote in Virginia, the state doesn’t require proof of citizenship when people register to vote which has led to these 1,046 illegals being able to cast votes.
According to Christian Adams, general counsel for the foundation, this relaxed law leads aliens and permanent residents to register to vote and either admit on the form they are not citizens, or they will mislead authorities on their status. Illegals are then able to slip through the cracks and have the ability to vote.
Although 1000 votes may not seem like much, these votes are critical in swing states and usually favor the Democrat who is running for the office.
The Virginia Voters Alliance first exposed the voter fraud in Alexandria, Virginia, and found that the city had more people registered to vote than eligible voters who lived there.
According to the foundation, they have promised to expose more information statewide about non-citizens voting and continue to find more issues of illegal voter fraud.
These findings also further provide support for states and politicians in favor of Voter ID laws to cut down fraud.
