Voter Probe Points to ‘Alien Invasion’ in Virginia

Virginia election officials quietly removed 5,556 voters for being noncitizens, and a new investigation suggests it’s just the tip of the iceberg.

The Public Interest Legal Foundation, partnering with the Virginia Voters Alliance, found that noncitizens in the Old Dominion voted 7,474 times between 2011 and May 2017.

“Virginia election officials routinely fail to alert law enforcement about these illegal votes or registrations,” PILF president and general counsel J. Christian Adams charged in a new report, “Alien Invasion.”

Edgardo Cortes, commissioner of the Virginia Department of Elections, discounted PILF’s concerns, saying the information on illegal voters was “readily available on our website.”

But the state site showed only 1,531 noncitizens being removed from Virginia’s voting rolls.

Adams said his group expended 100 hours rooting out illegal voters. He accused Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s administration of blocking election-integrity legislation.

McAuliffe this year vetoed SB 1581, which would have required local registrars to verify incoming voter applications against state and federal databases, including Social Security records.

The Democratic governor also vetoed SB 872, which would have applied voter-ID protocols to absentee balloting.

“The number of registered noncitizens in Virginia thus far identified by this investigation is just the tip of the iceberg,” PILF stated in its report.

According to 2016 U.S. Census estimates, some 474,000 voting-age noncitizens reside in Virginia. “Each of these individuals can make their way onto the voting rolls by simply checking the wrong box during a visit to the DMV. The true extent of the problem likely runs in the tens of thousands, if not more,” PILF asserted.

Last year, FAIR reported that America’s voter registration system is “susceptible to abuse by noncitizens.”

Reagan George, director of the nonpartisan Virginia Voters Alliance, said his group continues to scour – any may sue — counties where registered voters outnumber the voting-age population.

“The McAuliffe administration has done everything it could to drag this out. Trying to get a local Democratic prosecutor to act is next to impossible,” he said.

    I would like to make a comment about all of the hysterical people in this country who think Trump is the worst president in US history. Trump hasn’t started a pointless war like Vietnam and gotten tens of thousands of American soldiers killed for nothing, and he hasn’t done something like invade Iraq and destabilize the Middle East and get thousands of Americans killed for nothing.

    A lot people in this country need to get some perspective and get a grip. Maybe all the journalists and others in Washington should pay a visit to the Vietnam War Memorial and look at all of the names of soldiers who died for nothing to get a little perspective.

          So you think the Vietnam War and invasion of Iraq were great ideas? Whatever Trump’s flaws he still hasn’t done anything nearly as bad as starting unnecessary, catastrophic wars like Vietnam and Iraq as some of our past presidents have done.

            Welcome back. Hillary fully supported going into Iraq and she was the main proponent of giving assistance to the rebels who overthrew Quadaffi in Libya. As a result of his overthrow the country has turned into a no man’s land of jihadist groups. The Manchester bomber trained there. It’s the same belief, whether it’s Obama, Hillary, McCain, Graham, Bush 43, and others that if we just get rid of the dictators democracy and sunshine will break out all over the Middle East. Wish it could happen, but it’s a dangerous and naive idea. All it does is bring more chaos and more opportunity for radicals.

            Secborders I do agree with you and extrapolate that any War after WWII had no basis, the British intervention to re-draw the middle East countries and the Irak invasion( Senior Bush was smart not to….btw a Republican move not a democratic move ) led to what is going on in Europe n here w/refugees, etc.

            The present situation is causing unnecessary friction, his flaws are of monumental consequences so far, far worse than any other in charge. North Korea should be left alone for the Chinese & their neighbors like to take care of. He said he was not going to get involved yet he sends the carriers and provokes them, shovels the Montenegro on the side viciously, that should be of concern. I am glad to see Macron straighten him out him in his place because when that happens he represents himself not us.

            See if he can do that to Putin or Macron….picking up on the little people. Definitely a bad example of who we are……Griffin made a terrible mistake, but it was because of his own rhetoric….

            Imagine putting a picture of his with Megan’s body n head from what he said first, and then in response what griffin posted?…..he would have been the laughing stock it for a big mouth….yet he is lucky that comedian was dumb and stupid to do that;;…that tells you the limitations of Freedom of Speech…..

            We need a real politician like the Romans that raised their children to be ready. prepared an have the wisdom to deal with a country……a country is more than a business and close-minded unexpected and selfish behavior that might have long lasting consequences…..

    NWO Cowards

    Like Europe will let Hitler take them over because they won’t fight evil right, then expect America to rescue them, now they enlarge the trade deficits with us and steal our jobs…and won’t pay their NATO bills.

    The left continuously insists that having secure voter ID is somehow trying to “intimidate” voters. There is no reason that someone cannot have a secure and verified voting card. There are numerous government and private groups who can assist in obtaining identification for little or no fees. Some states let people vote if they can produce an electric bill and swear they are a citizen. Why should the votes of citizens be negated by what are no doubt people voting illegally in large numbers for Democratic candidates. A lot of races come down to less than a thousand votes.

    All states have standards on polling places. Candidates and their surrogates must remain a certain distance from the polls and with very few exceptions no one is permitted in a voting booth with voters. Last year in Florida, two Haitian-American state senate candidates were going to homes that were listed by the supervisor of elections office in Palm Beach County as having ballots mailed to them and what day they were mailed. They went into those homes and “assisted” people in filling out their ballots and collected them to be mailed. When questioned about it, both insisted that any concerns were “racism”.
