Get ready to feel your heads explode, folks.
Last Friday, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced that after an 11-month investigation by the Texas Department of Public Safety perusing state records going back to 1996, 95,000 people who identified themselves as non-citizens were discovered listed on the voter rolls and an astonishing 58,000 had voted in at least one Texas election.
Feel your head exploding yet?
“Every single instance of illegal voting threatens democracy in our state and deprives individual Texans of their voice. Nothing is more vital to preserving our Constitution than the integrity of our voting process, and my office will do everything within its abilities to solidify trust in every election in the state of Texas.”
Texas Governor Greg Abbott tweeted, “Thanks to Attorney General Paxton and the Secretary of State for uncovering and investigating this illegal vote registration. I support prosecution where appropriate. The State will work on legislation to safeguard against these illegal practices.”

As Fox News reported, “President Trump created a commission in 2017 to investigate allegations of voter fraud in the 2016 election. But it was eventually dismantled by President Trump after the group faced lawsuits, opposition from states and in-fighting among its members. Trump said at the time that Democrats refused to hand over data ‘because they know that many people are voting illegally.’”
Texas voter ID laws offer a list of acceptable forms of photo ID for voting. These include: a Texas Driver License issued by the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS); a Texas Election Identification Certificate issued by DPS; a Texas Personal Identification Card issued by DPS; a Texas Handgun License issued by DPS; a United States Military Identification Card containing the person’s photograph; a United States Citizenship Certificate containing the person’s photograph, or a United States Passport (book or card.)

The fact that we even have to have this discussion is despicable. This is why the Democrats don’t want a border wall because illegal immigrants are the only thing giving them a chance to win. The majority won’t vote democrat. The left will do anything to keep getting that illegal vote. And the left knows they need all the votes they can get.
Imagine how many elections the Democrats really didn’t win. Why do we continue to allow this to happen?
Get ready for 2020, folks.
