Why Republicans Are Exercised About Voter ID

Immigration

Contrary to popular Democratic shoe banging, Republicans are not passing voter ID laws to restrict poor and minority voters from voting.  Republicans are passing voter ID laws because Democrats want illegal aliens to vote – and those people vote for Democrats:

Are voters ready to let illegal immigrants vote? A sizable number, including most Democrats, are.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that one-out-of-three Likely U.S. Voters (35%) now believes that illegal immigrants should be allowed to vote if they can prove they live in this country and pay taxes. Sixty percent (60%) disagree, while five percent (5%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Fifty-three percent (53%) of Democrats think tax-paying illegal immigrants should have the right to vote. Twenty-one percent (21%) of Republicans and 30% of voters not affiliated with either major political party agree.

Note – this is not LEGAL immigrants, still not citizens mind you, but ILLEGAL immigrants.

Democrats want to extend this right only because illegal immigrants vote Democratic.

  1. Your post is really misleading. The Democratic party does not and would not risk massive fines and bad publicity by trying to get illegal aliens to commit felonies and vote. That is simply absolutely untrue. The fact is — and many Republicans have admitted on this in private meetings that were later publicized – voter ID laws reduce minority and poor voting, and those votes are usually Democrats. It is absolutely an attempt to limit voting. Moreover, there is NO evidence that voter fraud is at all a problem. To try to claim Democrats are going to get illegal aliens to vote is false – and it is really beneath you to suggest such a thing – especially based on a poll of people based on what they think the law ‘should’ be. That’s very, very different than saying this is happening. And a claim that “illegal aliens vote democratic” is an almost racist claim, worthy more of Trump than you – illegal aliens don’t vote, period.

    • Your post is really misleading. The Democratic party does not and would not risk massive fines and bad publicity by trying to get illegal aliens to commit felonies and vote.

      My point is that Democrats want illegal immigrants, and legal ones too, to have the *right* to vote. The point is not that Democrats want illegal aliens to vote illegally – though that is ABSOLUTELY true -.

      It is absolutely an attempt to limit voting.

      I disagree. My desire to require IDs is to prevent non-citizens from voting.

      Moreover, there is NO evidence that voter fraud is at all a problem.

      I haven’t made that claim. Yet.

      Good doctor – research your claims. And check your bias.
