Starting on April 1, 2018, illegal aliens in California who have recently obtained state driver's licenses legally, or obtained them previously by lying about their immigration status, will automatically be registered to vote.  Since January 2015, according to the California DMV, A.B. 60, a law passed by the California Assembly, "allows illegal immigrants to the United States to apply for a California driver's license with the CA Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV)" [emphasis original].

As of December 2016, more than 800,000 California driver's licenses were issued to illegal aliens under the A.B. 60 law. Additional thousands of illegals may have been granted licenses prior to 2015 because they lied on their driver's license application forms and claimed they were in the country legally.  (No proof of legal residence has been required by the California DMV in recent years.)...

The move to legalize non-citizen – including "undocumented" residents' – voting is slowly spreading nationwide. In 2016, immigrant activists [illegal alien activists] in New York City endorsed a legislative proposal to allow immigrants residing in the city – legal or not – the right to vote in local elections.  In reporting the story, the New York Post estimated that 500,000 illegal aliens reside in New York City. This change has not yet been formally approved, however. Meanwhile, according to Newsweek (September 13, 2017), "Immigrants [illegal aliens] Are Getting the Right to Vote in Cities Across America."...

The complementary impact of millions of them potentially voting legally in U.S. elections in the near term is less apparent, but it deserves our serious attention for what it portends.

 


CAIRCO Note

Illegal alien voting portends the demise of the Republican party. Immigrants and illegal aliens vote overwhelmingly for the Democrat party which gives them the most taxpayer-paid public benefits.
