The Texas Democratic Party asked non-citizens to register to vote, sending out applications to immigrants with the box citizenship already checked “Yes,” according to new complaints filed Thursday asking prosecutors to see what laws may have been broken.
The Public Interest Legal Foundation alerted district attorneys and the federal Justice Department to the pre-checked applications, and also included a signed affidavit from a man who said some of his relatives, who aren’t citizens, received the mailing.
“This is how the Texas Democratic Party is inviting foreign influence in an election in a federal election cycle,” said Logan Churchwell, spokesman for the PILF, a group that’s made its mark policing states’ voter registration practices.
The Texas secretary of state’s office said it, too, had gotten complaints both from immigrants and from relatives of dead people who said they got mailings asking them to register.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott vowed to investigate.
“If true there will be serious consequences,” he said.
Ann Coulter: ‘Dems Have No Right to Bring In Millions of People’ for Votes
New York Times best-selling author and populist conservative columnist Ann Coulter says Democrats “have no right” to use the United States immigration system to import new voters to replace Americans.
In a new profile by The Guardian, Coulter explains how the country’s legal immigration system — importing more than 1.5 million immigrants every year — is beneficial to the wealthiest of Americans while driving down the wages of the poor and working class.
Immigrants are great if you’re rich. You live in New York or LA, you get your pool cleaned. Rosa the maid cleans everything, serves, picks up the kids, makes the beds. Life is grand. But I go out to America. And I knew that immigration was an enormous effing issue that our political class – Republicans for the donor money, Democrats for the votes – was ignoring. [Emphasis added]
Marsha Blackburn up 14 percent despite Taylor Swift urging her followers to register and vote for opponent Phil Bredesen in Tennessee midterms
Taylor Swift’s “End Game” may be to keep Marsha Blackburn from being elected to the Senate, but Tennessee voters appear to be shaking off the pop star’s endorsement of her opponent.
On Sunday, Swift urged her 112 million Instagram followers to register to vote and cast their ballot for Blackburn’s opponent, former governor Phil Bredesen. After her post, voter registration in Tennessee went up to 65,000 registrations in a 24-hour period. However, a new New York Times poll on Friday shows Blackburn is ahead of Bredesen by 14 points.
