How a enforced border keeps us healthy

Border Patrol struggles with flood of sick migrantsSick migrant

The Washington Examiner reports in a 27 January 2019 article how the Border Patrol has started to feel overwhelmed by sick illegal aliens.

Border Patrol agents have spent nearly 20,000 hours since October driving asylum seekers to and from hospitals for medical evaluations, according to newly released Department of Homeland Security data.

Since Oct. 1, 2018, the Border Patrol, which works in rural areas between border crossings, has “seen an increase in the numbers of apprehended individuals requiring medical assistance.”

A total of 2,224 migrants, primarily from Guatemala and Honduras, have been hospitalized due to health issues that could not be treated on site in the last month alone, according to a CBP statement.

With a small (but significant) minority of our population not trusting vaccinations, we don’t need the added burden of a sick population coming into the nation. In the past, America quarantined sick immigrants.

With flesh-eating bacteria and Ebola causing problems in certain sectors of the globe, is there a reason to open up a portion of our border by not having a barrier?

Los Angeles typhus epidemic

Typhus Epidemic Worsens in Los Angeles

According to a 31 January 2019 article from the local affiliate of NBC, a typhus epidemic has worsened.

A veteran Los Angeles City Hall official is one of the latest victims of an epidemic of the infectious disease typhus that continues to worsen across LA County.

For months, LA County public health officials have said typhus is mainly hitting the homeless population.

But Deputy City Attorney Liz Greenwood, a veteran prosecutor, tells NBC4 she was diagnosed with typhus in November, after experiencing high fevers and excruciating headaches.

“It felt like somebody was driving railroad stakes through my eyes and out the back of my neck,” Greenwood told the I-Team. “Who gets typhus? It’s a medieval disease that’s caused by trash.”

Admittedly, the typhus epidemic in LA likely stems from the weather, drug use, and cleanliness issues of the homeless community.

Still, do we need to make this worse by keeping our Southern border open?

Migrant with flesh-eating bacteria detained at US border

Migrant with flesh-eating bacteria detained at US border

We read in a 25 January 2019 Associated Press article that an illegal alien with flesh-eating bacteria has been turned over by Border Patrol to a US hospital.

A man among a group of migrants detained in a desolate part of New Mexico near the border with Mexico has been diagnosed as infected with flesh-eating bacteria, the U.S. Border Patrol said Friday.

The man was taken to a hospital in recent days after telling a federal agent that he had a growing rash on his leg, U.S. Border Patrol spokesman Carlos Antunez said.

Flesh-eating bacteria are a rare condition called necrotizing fasciitis that spreads quickly and can be fatal. The bacteria usually gets into the body through a minor cut or scrape and can cause a serious infection that can destroy muscle, skin and other tissue.

Another 300 migrants, mostly Central Americans, were detained Thursday south of Lordsburg near an official U.S.-Mexico border crossing, Antunez said. Some had illnesses and injuries and were taken to hospitals for treatment.

The sparsely populated, desert area has experienced a significant influx of large migrant groups recently.

Nearly 10,000 migrants have been detained at New Mexico’s three Border Patrol stations since Oct. 1, officials said.
There were 12,800 detentions at the three stations from October 2017 through September 2018.

Since this bacteria generally comes from open wounds contacting sewage in warm water, this might underscore the magnitude of the numbers coming to the US. Shouldn’t we be securing our Southern border?

Texas says it found 95,000 non-citizens on voter rolls

The importance of a border shown in elections

Texas says it found 95,000 non-citizens on voter rolls; 58,000 have voted

According to a 26 January 2019 Fox News article, over 58,000 fraudulent voters have been identified in Texas.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced Friday that the state has discovered 95,000 non-citizens on the voter rolls going back to 1996, 58,000 of whom have voted in at least one Texas election — an announcement likely to raise fresh concerns about the prospect of voter fraud.

Texas has some of the toughest voter ID laws in the nation and has been one of the main battlegrounds in the Republican-led fight against alleged voter fraud. The office, in a statement, said that 33 people were prosecuted for voter fraud last year, and 97 were prosecuted between 2005-17. There are 16 million people in Texas registered to vote.

“Every single instance of illegal voting threatens democracy in our state and deprives individual Texans of their voice,” Paxton said in a statement.

The New York Times reported that the findings were a result of of an 11-month investigation into records at the Texas Department of Public Safety. Gov. Greg Abbott praised the findings and hinted at future legislation to crack down on voter fraud.

If we do not secure our voting, then we do not have verifiable elections. This needs to be fixed.

We need to prosecute those who voted illegally. Additionally, we need to take steps to ensure this does not happen again. That includes building a wall.

Migrant Caravan Swells to 12,000

Migrant Caravan Swells to 12,000 at Mexico’s Southern Border

Breitbart tells us in a 26 January 2019 article how another 12,000 potential illegal aliens have aimed at the the US Southern border.

The ranks of a new Central American migrant caravan reportedly grew in size to more than 12,000 as of Friday. The caravan is now heading to Mexico’s southern border.

Mexican immigration officials in the city of Ciudad Hidalgo, which borders Guatemala, are establishing procedures to expedite the process in which to approve one-year humanitarian visas for members of the Central American migrant caravan who are arriving daily. The one-year humanitarian visas, promised by Mexico’s new President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, is a newly adopted policy which allows migrants to legally travel and work during their stay in Mexico.

The new policy of handing out humanitarian visas began on January 17 in response to the new caravan of primarily Honduran migrants who left their home country and headed towards the Mexican border on January 15. Officials originally estimated the caravan’s size at about 2,000. Mexico now claims the caravan’s population swelled to over 12,000 migrants, according to local media and Breitbart Texas sources.

Officials put the new visa policy from President López Obrador in place to deal with caravan migrants as an attempt to prevent them from traveling unaccounted for throughout Mexico. Officials say it will also prevent the caravan members from having to illegally enter Mexico from Guatemala by crossing the Suchiate river.

As long as there is a better economy in the US than in Central America, it looks like this will keep up. One news source even said that one country was paying caravan members to come to the US. For this reason alone, we need a wall.

Mortality on the border: it’s a dangerous trek

Nearly 400 Migrants Died Crossing Unsecured U.S. Border in 2018

In a 1 January 2019 Breitbart article, the deadliness of the trek to America comes into focus.

Nearly 400 migrants lost their lives while or shortly after crossing the U.S. border with Mexico. More than half died in Texas.

In 2018, at least 376 died while crossing the border from Mexico into the U.S. or shortly thereafter, according to the International Organization for Migration’s Missing Migrant Project. Due to the partial shutdown of the U.S. government, the organization has not updated the numbers since December 21.

The organization reported the deaths of 214 men, 20 women, and four children. In addition, 138 sets of remains could not be identified by age or sex.

Of the reported 376 migrant deaths, more than 230 occurred in Texas, Breitbart News reported. Forty-eight of those occurred in Brooks County alone, which is located about 80 miles north of the Texas-Mexico border.

An exact number of migrant deaths is not known because many deceased migrants are never found.

With the exception of the two Guatemalan children who died recently after crossing the border into New Mexico, the deaths of the other 374 migrants drew little attention from U.S. media.

Democrats provide ammunition against themselves

human-trafficking-41514115

Democrats Offer Plan to Release All Child Traffickers at Border into U.S.

Brietbart reports in a 3 February 2019 article how Democrats have plans to release child traffickers at the US border.

The House Democrats’ first offer to President Trump in negotiations to fund his proposed United States-Mexico border wall includes a provision that would end all immigration enforcement for migrants trafficking children across the southern border.

The draft budget provides the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency with $7.4 billion, nearly $850 million less than requested by the Trump administration, and funds only 1,250 beds for adults and migrant children coming across the border this year, a decrease in detention space.

Attached to that funding, though, is an immigration enforcement ban first introduced by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and supported by every Senate Democrat. The Democrats’ offer demands that all immigration enforcement end for any adult crossing the border with a child by the end of Fiscal Year 2019.

Rather than being held in detention for a period of time, those adults and the migrant children they trafficked across the U.S.-Mexico border would be released immediately into the interior of the country.

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) previously called the plan the “Child Trafficking Encouragement Act” as it ensures that adults bringing children to the southern border would gain immediate access into the U.S. without fear of being deported or turned away.

Thirteen cases of potential midterm Democrat fraud


So far, the Democrats have or may have provided the following instances of potential voter fraud:

  1. The 15,000 uncounted ballots in Florida are blamed on a broken machine according to Republican Supervisor of Elections, Mike Hogan (Duval County).
    Is there any possibility that Democrats attempted sabotage of the count in this heavily Republican county by damaging the machine?
  2. Georgia Secretary of State Kemp investigates the Georgia Democrat party on suspicion of hacking. Although no details were provided, this act does reflect Georgians’ uneasiness concerning the security of the vote, as reflected by a Atlanta Journal & Constitution poll.

7 stories showing that Democrats cheat


Lawsuit alleges Texas Democrats are registering non-citizens to vote

The Political Insider writes in a 19 October 2018 article how Texas Democrats have registered non-citizens to vote.

Texas Democrats have been accused of asking non-citizens to register and vote according to complaints filed with state and federal officials, even going so far as to send out applications with the citizenship box pre-marked ‘Yes.’

District attorneys and the Justice Department were notified about the applications by the Public Interest Legal Foundation. The group also forwarded a signed affidavit from one individual who said a number of people, who are non-citizens, received the mailing.

Logan Churchwell, a spokesman for the group dedicated to securing the integrity of elections, told the Washington Times, “This is how the Texas Democratic Party is inviting foreign influence in an election in a federal election cycle.”

The mailings, which feature a return address for the State Democratic Executive Committee and a “paid for by the Texas Democratic Party,” were distributed around the Rio Grande Valley region of south Texas.

Four Democrat women steal mail-in ballots from elderly and vote for their favorite candidates

Four women harvest ballots for 2016 Democrat candidates

In an 18 October 2018 Fort Worth Star-Telegram article, a scheme that four women had to harvest ballots for their favorite candidates.

State authorities now allege Sanchez, also known as Leticia Sanchez Pierce, was among four women being paid to target elderly voters in north Fort Worth in a scheme to harvest their ballots for specific 2016 candidates.

Sanchez, a teacher assistant at Como Elementary, is on leave but still employed by the Fort Worth school district, according to Clint Bond, a spokesman for the district.

Sanchez, 57, was indicted last week on 17 counts in connection with the alleged voter fraud operation. Among the accusations were that she marked Garcia’s ballot without his consent and provided false information on applications for mail-in ballots for Garcia and Barela.

Considering the times that Democrats have lectured via Twitter regarding the President’s moral failings, will they admit the moral depravity of stealing elderly citizens’ ballots in order to fraudulently cast votes?

In 2015, Jerry Brown automatically registered illegal aliens

As reported by a 12 October 2015 Breitbart article, California passed the New Motor Voter Act.

On Saturday, California Governor Jerry Brown signed Assembly Bill 1461, the New Motor Voter Act, which will automatically register people to vote through the DMV, and could result in illegal aliens voting.

Any person who renewed or secured a driver’s license through the DMV may now register to vote, or choose to opt out of doing so. Because illegal immigrants are now eligible for obtaining driver’s licenses, they could be allowed to vote in elections if the Secretary of State’s office fails to verify their eligibility properly.

Brown and the California Democratic party know exactly what they are doing; as a Public Policy Institute survey showed, among unregistered adults, 49% lean toward the Democratic Party and 22% toward the Republican Party. Any bill permitting illegal immigrants to vote would cement the Democratic Party’s hold on California.

Although this and the following story do not specifically cover intentional acts of voter fraud, they do open up the possibility of non-citizens illegally voting in a federal election (since it is against federal law for a non-citizen to vote in a federal election). This also opens up the possibility of having swaths of the election results being thrown out due to widespread improprieties.

Michael Rameriz cartoon centers on San Francisco allows non-citizens to register to vote.

San Francisco began registering illegal aliens to vote in July 2018

San Francisco began registering illegal aliens during July 2018 according to a 17 July 2018 Daily Wire article.

The Department of Elections in San Francisco on Monday issued voter registration for illegal aliens to allow them to vote for members of the city’s Board of Education in the Nov. 6 election.

Becoming California’s first city to allow non-American citizens to vote in local elections, Supervisor Norman Yee said, “We want to give immigrants the right to vote.”

[For the record, “immigrants” are people who come to America through the legal process, while “illegal aliens” sneak into the country.]

In order to vote, the illegal aliens must live in the city, be at least 18 years old and be the “parents, legal guardians or caregivers of children under the age of 19 who also reside in San Francisco,” ABC-7 reported.

In light of the fact that California allows illegal aliens to vote, should the House and Senate refuse to seat members from California? There will be no way to tell whether those elected were elected by American citizens.

Two groups investigated in connection to voter fraud in Georgia

Voter fraud in Georgia: Two groups tied to Democrats are under investigation for forged voter applications

A 10 September 2018 post at United Liberty reveals that two Democrat-connected groups have come under investigation.

There’s some big news is coming out of the Peach State that implicates organizations tied to state House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams (D-Atlanta), a supporter of Michelle Nunn and Jason Carter, the Democratic Party of Georgia’s nominees for U.S. Senate and Governor.

Third Sector Development, founded by Abrams, and its subsidiary, the New Georgia Project, have allegedly forged voter registration applications, forged signatures, and told voters that they have to re-register. The two organizations focus their efforts on minority engagement. According to WSB-TV, the Georgia Secretary of State’s office subpoenaed records from the two investigations after receiving numerous complaints:

In a memo sent to county elections officials, Secretary of State Brian Kemp said in recent weeks his office has “received numerous complaints about voter applications submitted by the New Georgia Project.”

Kemp wrote, “Preliminary investigation has revealed significant illegal activities’ including forged voter registration applications, forged signatures on releases, and applications with false or inaccurate information.”

A spokesman confirmed Kemp’s office was contacted by officials in DeKalb, Gwinnett, Henry, Bartow, Butts and Muscogee counties.

“We’re just not going to put up with fraud. I mean, we have zero tolerance for that in Georgia so we’ve opened an investigation and served some subpoenas,” Kemp told Channel 2 political reporter Lori Geary. “At the end of the day this is not going to be about politics. This is about potential fraud which we think happened.”

This has to end. There needs to be a point where illegal votes do not detract from our legal votes. If a party cannot convince the voters to support it with votes, it must not be allowed to cheat its way back into the pocketbook of America.

Georgia

670 ballots in a precinct with 276 voters, and other tales from Georgia’s primary

in a 12 August 2018 article by McClatchy, we find about the fraud that occurred during the 2018 primaries.

Habersham County’s Mud Creek precinct in northeastern Georgia had 276 registered voters ahead of the state’s primary elections in May.

But 670 ballots were cast, according to the Georgia secretary of state’s office, indicating a 243 percent turnout.

The discrepancy, included in a number of sworn statements and exhibits filed as part of a federal lawsuit against the state by election security activists, comes amid swelling public concern for the security of Georgia’s voting systems. Georgia is one of four states that uses voting machines statewide that produce no paper record for voters to verify, making them difficult to audit, experts say.

And cybersecurity experts have warned that there were security flaws on the state election website leading up to the 2016 contest that permitted the download and manipulation of voter information.

The court filings highlight various issues with Georgia’s 16-year-old voting machines, as well as the system that runs them and handles voter registration information.

In one sworn statement, a voter explains that she and her husband, who were registered to vote at the same address, were assigned different polling places and different city council districts. In another, a voting machine froze on Election Day.

In several instances, voters showed up at their polling places as listed on the secretary of state’s website, only to be told they were supposed to vote elsewhere.

An Atlanta Democrat’s voting machine provided him a ballot including the 5th Congressional District, for which longtime Rep. John Lewis ran unopposed, instead of his 6th Congressional District ballot, which featured a competitive Democratic race.

Some issues, such as the freezing machines, could be chalked up to the age of the polling infrastructure, said Harri Hursti, a computer programmer who studies election cybersecurity.

Voter fraud across Texas


Senator Bettencourt’s first presser on UPS Store mailboxes as residences

Democrat Voter Registrar Ann Bennett refuses to take action after four appeals

In a 30 October 2018 Facebook post at the Paul Bettencourt page, Paul points out:

84 active registered voters at just this one UPS Store – 22 have already voted! This pattern is repeating across Harris County at around 100 sites. Registering voters at commercial locations must stop now!

In an accompanying video that covers the press conference announcing the discovery of the 84 people registered at one UPS store, Paul Bettencourt points out the illegality of what has been done. He points out how people have purposely violated voter registration, drivers license, and 911 record registration law in Texas by using an UPS Store mail box as a declared residence.

During the same press conference, Stan Stanart (County Clerk for Harris County, Texas) talks about how many races come down to 7 or 24 votes. Hence, he points out the problem of having 84 people declaring mailboxes as residences.

Next, Senator Bettencourt reiterates the points made by the county clerk and underscores the illegality of people using UPS mail boxes as a residence. Additionally, he points out that “nearly 80% of those live an another state representative’s district.”

District Attorney Chris Daniels describes the problems the 84 people who have illegally registered to vote (and, therefore, to serve on juries) using the address of a UPS Store as a residence.

Harris County Treasurer Orlando Sanchez describes (first in English, then in Spanish) how close a number of his races have ended. Therefore, the 84 potential voter fraud cases (22 of which have voted before 30 October) cannot be ignored.

Finally, Senator Bettencourt describes the potential widespread nature of this type of voter fraud. He suggests that somewhere around 1,000 cases (extrapolated from the 100 institutions like this UPS Store and its 84 law breakers) may exist across the county. He points out the need for vigilance and challenges Voter Registrar Ann Bennett (D-Harris County) to take action.

As many main stream media outlets have repeatedly pointed out, the Democrats would normally gain seats in Congress just because people seem to vote for the underdog. However, since the Democrats have billed the “blue wave” as a done deal, then why do they put such an effort toward cheating?

UPS_Store1

In a similar case, 46 voters have registered their residence as another UPS Store

Again, at the Paul Bettencourt Facebook page, a second post tells of those committing voter fraud by claiming a UPS Store as a residence.

Can you believe 46 VOTERS have actual Harris County Voter Registrations at this one UPS Store? 8 have already voted in this election! REALLY!!

I’m not after the actual folks registered here in this tiny, apparently overcrowded commercial “residence” LOL, but an explanation from the Voter Registrar Ann Bennett (D-Harris County) who is making a mockery of the voter registration process by allowing voter registrations in 100+ sites like this one all over Harris County!

The integrity of the voter roll matters! We have had a State Representative race won by just 7 votes. The one UPS store pictured here at 11152 Westheimer, can be checked out at http://www.hctax.net so you can see this for yourself!

Under Texas Law you are you supposed to register at your residence, but two elected Democratic officeholders now disagree and allow this “packing of voters” into this store and other sites per my good County Clerk Stan Stanart (R-Harris County) who says it clearly. (Watch our press conference here: https://bit.ly/2zg3m9Y) Under Texas law you are required to register to vote where you live. Does anyone believe that there are 46 people living in this UPS store?!

Rather than act on a voter residency challenge that was brought by a constituent of mine in SD 7, that challenged roughly 4,000 voter registrations based upon residency, both the elected Voter Registrar Bennett and County Attorney Ryan have opted to reject this legal challenge and do nothing.

This stands in direct contrast to the opinion of the Texas Secretary of State – the highest election official in Texas who issued their first opinion in 5 years because of these nonsensical actions. Its importance is discussed at our press conference. (Read more: https://bit.ly/2qgVnVU)

All of this comes on the heels of almost 300 Baytown voters left off the voter rolls because Bennett’s Voter Registration department sat on annexation information sent by the City since July. Additionally, Bennett is in Federal Court arguing that she does not have to take self-identified non citizens off the voter roll nor release the names under the Texas Open Records Act that come from the county jury selection process.

The integrity of the voter roll is at risk! It is the bedrock of fair and transparent elections. Where in the world is Ann Harris Bennett’s (D-Harris County) own explanation!

“Share” if you agree!

I agree; therefore, I am sharing this post as much as I can.

Melanie Bell Lorant is denied her vote

In-person voter fraud alleged in Tarrant County, Texas

Empower Texans reports in a 1 November 2018 post on one woman’s experience with voter fraud and Democrats who purportedly denied her vote.

Tarrant County voter Melanie Bell Lorant was turned away at the polls Wednesday after being told someone else had voted in her place. Worse, Lorant says poll workers refused to document the problem or find a solution.

“I need HELP!” Lorant posted on Facebook after the incident:

Went to early vote today and was informed I would not be allowed to vote because someone already voted in my place.

They refused any help and refused to provide a solution. They refused to provide a print proving that this happened and refused to request permission to take a photo to prove this happened.

They allowed someone to vote in my place without verifying the ID!!!

I HAD TO LEAVE WITHOUT VOTING.

Lorant called the Tarrant County Elections office and spoke to the early voting coordinator. She learned someone had voted in her name at Southlake Town Hall on Sunday, October 28, at 11:32 a.m.

How could that happen with Texas’ voter ID requirement?

It’s possible a poll worker at Southlake mistakenly signed in another voter under Lorant’s name. Lorant says they did not properly verify the voter’s ID, allowing someone to steal her vote and disenfranchise her. Election officials can resolve whether it was a mistake or voter fraud by simply looking at the voter signature page.

In either case, election workers may have cost Lorant her vote and allowed a fraudulent one to be counted.

Lorant says she was told her only option now is to vote a provisional ballot, then election officials will “compare signatures and decide whose vote to accept.” But whether or not Lorant’s provisional vote is accepted, the other ballot has already been cast and will be counted—it can’t be uncast.

“This is NOT acceptable,” Lorant said.

In Dallas, mail-in ballot fraud suspected

Dallas GOP fighting in court against voter fraud

A 31 October 2018 Empower Texans post discusses problems of voter fraud in Dallas, Texas.

Dallas Republicans are once again battling local Democrats to stop voter fraud. They were in court today seeking a temporary restraining order against Dallas County’s Democrat elections administrator Toni Pippins-Poole to delay opening of suspicious mail ballots, which was scheduled to begin at 7:00 a.m.

Lawyers for the Dallas County Republican Party asked a judge to sequester about 2,400 mail ballots submitted for the November election that GOP ballot board members identified as questionable. They also flagged 20 mail ballots signed by disgraced ex-state representative Terri Hodge as an “assistant.”

Hodge, a Democrat, pleaded guilty in 2010 to felony tax evasion in a Dallas bribery scandal and spent a year in prison. Hodge is prohibited from running for public office but continues to assist mail-ballot voters.

Judge Gena Slaughter, also a Democrat, is hearing the case. Slaughter delayed today’s hearing for 24 hours to allow the DCRP to present additional evidence with its amended TRO request, and to give Pippins-Poole time to secure representation. Dallas County District Attorney Faith Johnson, a Republican, has recused herself from the proceedings.

Illegal Aliens in election news


Henry Padilla Martinez II

 

Drunken undocumented immigrant sets fire to Washington Adventist Hospital ER

ABC affiliate WJLA reports in a 24 August 2018 article that an illegal alien has set fire to a hospital.

A highly inebriated man set a fire within the Washington Adventist Hospital emergency room, putting dozens of lives at risk, the Montgomery County Fire Marshal’s Office tells ABC7.

It was 9:15 a.m. on Sunday, May 27. Hospital staff found patient Henry Padilla-Martinez, 20, of an unknown address, wandering the halls of the ER. As an employee attempted to guide Padilla-Martinez back to his room, he noticed the drunken man’s hospital bed was ablaze. Staff ran to grab a fire extinguisher and frantically sprayed down the bed to prevent the fire from spreading further.

Firefighters were called to the hospital. The visible damage included burnt linens, melted plastic framing and discolored flooring. Padilla-Martinez’s room was located directly across from the main nurse’s station.

Authorities note at the time of the fire, there were around 20 staff members and 15 patients in the ER. Fact is, the fire could have killed people – many confined to their hospital beds – had employees not noticed the blaze as quickly as they did.

The fire marshal’s office opted to charge Padilla-Martinez with first-degree malicious burning and reckless endangerment. The 20-year-old had a BIC lighter on his person, which investigators believe he used to set the fire.

Why the inebriated Mr. Martinez decided to set fire to his hospital bed, only he can tell. Maybe he thought he would cover up the fact that he had been driving while drunk. Maybe he had other motives. Nonetheless, having broken the law to enter the US, it is obvious he had no reservations against breaking the law again and possibly killing multiple Americans.

Since this falls in the district of Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC), maybe we should ask her why Democrats support illegals over law-abiding Americans.

Two men loosely associated with a brutal Mexican cartel, one of whom is an illegal immigrant, are responsible for beheading a 13-year-old girl with special needs and murdering her grandmother, Alabama law enforcement allege.

Sleeping eleven-year-old girl raped in own bed by ‘gentle’ MS-13 gang member

A 1 September 2018 New York Post article reports the rape of a girl.

A purported member of the MS-13 gang broke into the bedroom of a sleeping 11-year-old Brooklyn girl and raped her in her bed, cops said Saturday as the suspect was taken into custody.

The horrific crime happened at 11:30 p.m. Wednes­day in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens, officials said.

The suspect — identified by police sources as El Salvadoran immigrant Julio Cesar Ayala, 18, who lives nearby — had allegedly climbed onto the roof of the girl’s apartment building.

He then somehow shoved aside the girl’s window air conditioner on the second floor and crawled inside through the opening, police sources said.

The fiend raped the girl in her bed, officials said.

But he dashed back out the window as she screamed to alert her mother, who rushed to her aid, sources said.

The mother called 911 but did not catch sight of the attacker, the sources said.

Illegal immigration a ‘major problem’ for 68% of voters

OneNewsNow reports in a 2 September 2018 article that a large majority of American voters have a problem with the invasion of illegal aliens.

A new nationwide poll reveals that the overwhelming majority of voters in the United States (68 percent) view illegal immigration as a “major problem” in America and believe that not enough is being done by the federal government to remedy the situation.

According to the latest Rasmussen Reports poll – taken by 1,000 voters via phone and online surveys from August 26 to 27 with a plus or minus three percent sampling error and 95 percent level of confidence – nearly seven out of 10 Americans heading to the ballot box for November’s midterms are fed up with illegals flooding their country and taking a toll on the economy and national security … and more than four out of 10 see illegal immigration as an extremely “serious” threat.

“Sixty-eight (68) percent of ‘Likely U.S. Voters’ think illegal immigration is a serious problem in America today, with 43 percent who consider it ‘Very Serious,’” Rasmussen Reports revealed in its Immigration Update Thursday.

Considering the numbers of voters worrying about illegal aliens, how can Nancy Pelosi craft the Democrat message around stomping all over these voters’ concerns?

 

Illegal alien pleads guilty to illegal voting in Harris County

A 13 September 2018 article in the Houston Chronicle explained how an illegal alien conspired to vote illegally in 2016.

A Mexican citizen pleaded guilty to election fraud charges on Thursday in Montgomery County for voting illegally in the 2016 presidential election, among others.

Laura Janeth Garza, a 38-year-old Mexican national, was handed a 10-year jail sentence, a $10,000 fine and will be deported after serving her jail time, according to the attorney general’s office. She pleaded guilty to charges of voter impersonation and ineligible voting, both second-degree felonies.

Garza allegedly obtained documents to steal the identity of a U.S. citizen and illegally registered to vote in Harris County, according to a joint investigation by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and the Texas Department of Public Safety. She used the alias Angie Yadira Zamora and cast ballots in 2004, 2012 and 2016.

How can we expect anything else when the Obama administration stopped the SSA from issuing no-match letters when E-Verify found that an applicant’s SSN was already in use? If the Obama administration would turn a blind eye to SSN fraud, why not ignore voter fraud?

 

Illegal aliens steal 39 million Social Security numbers over the past 4 years.

 

Illegal aliens have stolen as many as 39 million identities over the last 4 years

During an early-morning 10 September 2018 interview on on News Radio KTRH, Jimmy Barrett spoke with Dale Wilcox of the Immigration Reform Law Institute regarding the large number of identities stolen by illegal aliens.

Another example of the high cost of illegal immigration; Americans having their identities and social security numbers stolen by illegal aliens.

The Immigration Reform Law Institute recently revealed scores of names on W-2 tax forms did not match corresponding Social Security records.

“During the tax years of 2012 through 2016, there were more than 39 million W-2 reports that did not match, the Social Security numbers failed to match the names,” IRLI executive director Dale Wilcox told Breitbart News Tonight.

And he says U.S. children at the most at-risk of having their IDs stolen.

It stands to reason that Obama stopped the Social Security Administration from issuing no-match letters so that more DACA lawbreakers would not get caught.

Madison Wells

 

Illegal stabs and kills a 16-year-old New Jersey girl

In a New Jersey Advance Media 10 September 2018 article, we find that an illegal has killed a young girl.

Family and friends are mourning the loss of a 16-year-old high school student who was killed late Saturday night in Long Branch.

The Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office said police found 16-year-old Madison Wells suffering from stab wounds at a home a few blocks from her home, also in Long Branch. She was pronounced dead at Monmouth Medical Center shortly after.

A cousin, and authorities later Monday, identified the young woman as Madison Wells.

Wells’ cousin said she had moved back to New Jersey a few years ago from Florida to be with her father after her mother passed away.

In a statement to the school community, Long Branch Superintendent Michael Salvatore said they will make grief counselors available at the high school and recommended those struggling with the loss take advantage of the services of the Traumatic Loss Coalition for Youth.

Voter fraud from various angles (Part 3)


Kris Kobach Speaks Out

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.jsIn this tweet’s attached video clip (taken from the 19 July 2017 airing of Fox and Friends), Kris Kobach of the voter fraud commission noted a number things.

The pushback wasn’t about ballots. It was actually about the voter rolls. The commission asked “can we have the publicly-available voter rolls that any person who walks in off the street can have?” The reason you need that is so you can start somewhere when you are looking at things like, perhaps, deceased people on the voter rolls, non-citizens on the voter rolls and things like that.

Also, fortunately, there was one case where they were trying to stop our meeting today from even occurring and the judge correctly ruled against the ACLU and other organizations that were trying to stop us.

Mr. Kobach went on to make other comments about the reasons for collecting these records, the resistance he has met, and the people who would have him removed from his position.

The Heritage Foundation Speaks Out

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.jsIn this tweet’s attached commentary, the Heritage Foundation spoke out through a 1 March 2017 piece by Jason Snead in The Daily Signal.

Voter fraud is back in the news, and liberals are not happy about it.

President Donald Trump has pledged that his administration will fully investigate voter fraud in U.S. elections and recently appointed Vice President Mike Pence to lead the charge.

This is a welcome development. Free and fair elections are the foundation of our political system. If Americans are to have faith in that system, they need to be able to say with confidence that the results of these contests accurately reflect the will of the people.

But for some, the integrity of the ballot box is less important than victory. These fraudsters and thieves are not above rigging elections and stealing votes to advance their careers and their causes.

And because few states have the policies needed to detect and prevent their fraud, there is little risk of being caught. In these situations, it is all too easy to thwart the will of voters.

Snead’s piece went on to describe the Heritage Foundation’s database on voter fraud. Following that, the final paragraphs provided brief descriptions of fraud cases in Texas, Virginia, and Colorado.

The Heritage Foundation Speaks Again

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.jsIn this tweet’s attached commentary, the Heritage Foundation again spoke out. This time, a 23 February 2017 piece by Joanne Young brings out the best points in the middle of the article (which I quote immediately below).

The irony was that at the same time Obama’s lawyer, Bob Bauer, was leading the bipartisan commission, his own firm was suing the state of Virginia, calling the efforts to clean up voter rolls racist and purging.

It goes further. Obama nominated Myrna Perez to be on the Election Assistance Commission. Perez was an adamant opponent of voter list maintenance, declaring such efforts “purging.”

This is why it’s tough to even talk about vote fraud. Any efforts, even those with bipartisan support, are bitterly opposed by liberal activists.

Aside from the incendiary rhetoric, there are real challenges to maintaining clean voter registration rolls that liberals and conservatives need to work together to overcome.

Underfunded and understaffed state election offices do not have the resources to review voter registration records and remove dead people and other ineligible voters. States do not share information to identify double registrations and potential double voting.

Lists of noncitizens excused from jury duty are not shared with secretaries of state to be removed from voter registration rolls. Significant advances are being made in this area through the use of technology, but much remains to be done. Bipartisan cooperation, not political bickering, is needed.

There may be no better example than the requirement for a photo ID. Voter ID is overwhelmingly supported by the public. A 2016 Gallup poll last August found that 80 percent of Americans, including 63 percent of Democrats, support the requirement that a person show a photo ID at the polls before voting.

A primary recommendation of the 2005 bipartisan Commission on Federal Election Reform (the “Carter-Baker Commission”) was to require voter ID. This commission was led by Jimmy Carter, former president and noted liberal, and James Baker, secretary of state under President George H.W. Bush.

Yet, liberals oppose any efforts to enact commonsense voter ID laws, opposing them in legislatures and in the courts. Voter ID laws, which protect the integrity of the vote and thus our democracy for all citizens, are called racist and mechanisms of voter suppression.

Liberals often make ludicrous, unsubstantiated claims about voter ID, such as claiming hundreds of thousands of voters would be disenfranchised by voter ID—claims that even sympathetic liberals and courts question as based on faulty statistics and methods.

The article went on to describe both how countermeasures might have prevented voter fraud in New Hampshire and how the fraud was recognized by a number of notable liberal figures.

Maryland citizens went to court to show that noncitizens were registering
and an investigation found dozens had voted fraudulently in three years.

Lawsuit on behalf of Maryland Citizens suggests Noncitizens Voting across U.S.

In a 19 March 2017 Washington Times article by Rowan Scarborough notes that an anti-voter-fraud activist has brought suit on behalf of Maryland voters to prove that illegal voters were violating legal voters’ right to due process.

The debate over noncitizens voting was a hot topic a few years ago in Frederick County, a prosperous Maryland suburb wedged between Washington’s urban metropolis and the state’s rural western gateway to the rest of America.

Conservative activists went to court to show that noncitizens were registering fraudulently to vote. A court employee met their request by turning over pages of residents’ names disqualified from jury duty because of alien status.

When those lists were compared with voting records for just three years — 2007, 2008 and 2011 — nearly 180 noncitizens were found to have registered to vote. Of those, 63 had voted, some in multiple elections. The 180 registered votes came from 1,400 disqualified noncitizens in those three years, a rate of 12.8 percent.

The issue of noncitizen voters has taken on national importance. President Trump, who said 3 million or so voted illegally in November, plans to name a federal task force to investigate.

Frederick County’s numbers offer a limited snapshot from a handful of jury pools, but they indicate that noncitizens are registered to vote and are casting ballots in states, which administer federal, state and local elections.

“Obviously, there are people on the voting rolls who have no business being on the voter rolls,” said conservative activist Daniel M. Gray, a lawyer who filed the lawsuit. “What needs to be determined is how extensive is this. How many noncitizens weren’t summoned for jury duty and went ahead and voted?”

Census data matched to raw survey statistics indicate that as many as 2 million noncitizens could be registered to vote in the U.S.

Liberals dismiss such surveys. A group of political scientists declared that “zero” noncitizens vote in U.S. elections. Washington’s liberal news media used their analysis to pronounce studies showing otherwise as being “debunked.”

But the Frederick County court case deals with real people, not polls, and it shows aliens do indeed vote. And Frederick is not alone.

Since the courts move as slowly as they do, one disheartening thing is that this lawsuit seems not to have progressed to any conclusion after three months.

Voter fraud from various angles (Part 2)


Mexican citizen convicted of voter fraud

Mexican who voted illegally in Texas did so five times

As reported in a 10 February 2017 Independent Review Journal article, one Mexican citizen thought she could legally vote (5 times) in US elections

Rosa Maria Ortega was born in Monterrey, Mexico, and brought to the U.S. by her mother when she was just a baby.

Now, she faces eight years in prison for voter fraud in Texas. While Ortega is a legal resident of the U.S., she is not a U.S. citizen.

Ortega was found guilty Wednesday on two counts of voter fraud after having falsely claimed to be a U.S. citizen and voting at least five times between 2012 and 2014. In addition to the  eight year prison sentence, she was ordered to pay a $5,000 fine.

One question for the foreign woman who voted in Texas: if you knew that you were born in another country and your parents were citizens of that country, why would you assume that you could vote in American elections?  One question for Texas election officials: why did we allow a foreign national to vote in Texas elections 5 times before investigating the matter?

Finally, let me remind all that ignorance of the law is no excuse for breaking the law.

Hundreds May Have Voted Illegally in Texas

According to a 19 February 2017 Fox News article, hundreds of cases of voter fraud may have occurred.

Officials in Texas acknowledge that hundreds of people were able to bypass voter ID laws and improperly cast ballots in the presidential election.

Voters were able to sign a sworn statement instead of showing ID.

The chief election officers in two of Texas’ largest counties are considering whether to refer cases to prosecutors for possible charges.

Officials in many other areas say they will let the mistakes go, adding that there was widespread confusion among workers and voters.

The law requires voters to show one of seven approved forms of identification.

The affidavit process was adopted after an appeals court ruled that the voter ID law discriminated against minorities. The change was intended to help voters who could not obtain identification for a variety of reasons, including disability or illness, lack of transportation or conflicts with work schedules.

The revelations come as President Trump has made frequent claims that the nation’s voting systems are vulnerable to fraud.

An Associated Press analysis of roughly 13,500 affidavits submitted in Texas’ largest counties found at least 500 instances in which voters were allowed to get around the law by signing an affidavit and never showing a photo ID, despite indicating that they possessed one.

Questionable affidavits were identified in over 20 counties around the state.

Tarrant County alone had at least two dozen. In Bexar County, home to San Antonio, the top election official estimated that a large chunk of the nearly 600 affidavits submitted should have been declined and voters instructed to cast provisional ballots instead.

Again, why do we wait until a Republican president points to the flaws in the system before we notice that the system has been as riddled with cracks as many have been reporting? Since the days of President Johnson, Texans have known of Democrats and their ballot box tricks.

At least 385 non-citizens registered to vote in Ohio

A 28 February 2017 WCMH article reveals 385 non-citizens registered to vote in Ohio and 82 cast ballots.

Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted announced an investigation has uncovered that hundreds of non-US citizens are registered to vote in the state, and dozens of them voted illegally.

According to a release from Husted, 385 people who are not citizens of the United States are registered to vote in Ohio. Out of those, 82 voted in at least one election in the last year.

Virginia finds thousands of non-citizens on voter rolls

According to a 1 March 2017 Washington Times article, thousands of non-citizens have been found on Virginia voters rolls.

When Virginia Delegate Robert Marshall asked the state’s 133 local governments to provide numbers on noncitizens and jury pools, Loudoun County produced some hefty figures.

Between 2009 and 2014, the Washington, D.C., exurb of more than 350,000 residents had disqualified more than 9,000 of them for jury duty because they were not U.S. citizens.

Loudoun County jury pools come from two sources — voter registration lists and Department of Motor Vehicle driver’s license applications. The county’s 9,000 juror disqualifications means that a potentially significant number of noncitizens vote illegally in Virginia. It suggests a basis for President Trump’s assertion of illegal immigrants voting in November’s elections, though not necessarily by the “millions” he has claimed.

After Mr. Marshall, Prince William Republican, had collected the jury pool data in 2014, a new player entered the state last year. The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) began canvassing election clerks county by county, city by city, demanding they turn over information on noncitizens purged from voters lists and whether they had voted.

The foundation found itself in a stiff battle with Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s elections chief, who, PILF said, did not want to turn over voter information. In October PILF issued its first report, accusing the state of a “cover up” as “thousands” of noncitizens illegally remain on Virginia’s voting rolls.

Citing data from six counties and two cities, the report found that 1,000 noncitizens were registered to vote in those jurisdictions between 2011 and 2016, and that 200 of them actually voted.

Should we be surprised that Democrat Terry McAuliffe sandbagged the efforts to find voter fraud? Should we expect more voter fraud to be unearthed in the state where this governor enabled felons to vote?

Investigators show that voter fraud is simple

A 20 January 2014 National Review article explains how voter fraud can easily be accomplished.

Liberals who oppose efforts to prevent voter fraud claim that there is no fraud — or at least not any that involves voting in person at the polls.

But New York City’s watchdog Department of Investigations has just provided the latest evidence of how easy it is to commit voter fraud that is almost undetectable. DOI undercover agents showed up at 63 polling places last fall and pretended to be voters who should have been turned away by election officials; the agents assumed the names of individuals who had died or moved out of town, or who were sitting in jail. In 61 instances, or 97 percent of the time, the testers were allowed to vote. Those who did vote cast only a write-in vote for a “John Test” so as to not affect the outcome of any contest. DOI published its findings two weeks ago in a searing 70-page report accusing the city’s Board of Elections of incompetence, waste, nepotism, and lax procedures.

You’d think more media outlets would have been interested, because the sloppiness revealed in the DOI report is mind-boggling. Young undercover agents were able to vote using the names of people three times their age, people who in fact were dead. In one example, a 24-year female agent gave the name of someone who had died in 2012 at age 87; the workers at the Manhattan polling site gave her a ballot, no questions asked. Even the two cases where poll workers turned away an investigator raise eyebrows. In the first case, a poll worker on Staten Island walked outside with the undercover investigator who had just been refused a ballot; the “voter” was advised to go to the polling place near where he used to live and “play dumb” in order to vote. In the second case, the investigator was stopped from voting only because the felon whose name he was using was the son of the election official at the polling place.

Considering the demonstrated ease of voter fraud, it seems only natural that we should make it harder to do the wrong thing (commit voter fraud) than the right (make our voice known at the ballot box, through the public forums, and with our elected officials).
