19 Illegal Aliens Charged with Voting Illegally in 2016

Liberals continue to claim that this doesn’t happen, but officials continue to find cases where illegals voted illegally and always for Democrats. The most recent example is the arrest of 19 illegal aliens charged with unlawful voting in North Carolina.

At the end of August, the Department of Homeland Security announced that 19 illegals were arrested for illegal voting in the 20916 election. According to DHS:

WILMINGTON, N.C. – Nineteen foreign nationals were charged with unlawfully voting in the 2016 elections Friday, and a U.S. citizen was charged with aiding and abetting an alien to falsely claim U.S. citizenship to register to vote. The indictments follow an investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) as part of a newly created Document and Benefit Fraud Task Force (DBFTF) in the Eastern District of North Carolina.

A federal grand jury in Wilmington charged the following foreign nationals with falsely claiming U.S. citizenship to register to vote in North Carolina, and also with unlawfully voting. If convicted, these individuals face maximum penalties of six years in federal prison, a $350,000 fine, and a term of supervised release.

Then, on August 28, the Department of Justice added a press release naming all those arrested.

According to Front Page:

The nineteen aliens who were the subject of the DOJ and DHS press releases were investigated by the Trump administration’s newly-created counter-fraud operation which hired additional attorneys and immigration officers to review the cases of aliens who had been ordered deported but then are believed to have assumed false identities to become lawful immigrants and subsequently acquire U.S. citizenship under their false identities by defrauding the naturalization process. Under the provisions of 8 U.S. Code § 1451 such alien’s naturalization can be revoked and the alien may also be criminally prosecuted for having committed such fraud.

Liberals will point to this and say, “big deal, it was just 19 illegal votes.” Sure, if that was all there was. But the problem is, until Trump began looking into this, no previous president’s administration ever bothered to try and prosecute or investigate voter fraud. And we all know it has been going on with Democrats for decades.

Democrats have a vested interest in making sure the extent of vote fraud in the U.S. goes un-investigated., because that is how they win elections. They cheat. And they don’t want that uncovered.
