Video: Obama 'encourages illegals to vote'

Fox anchor erupts: 'You're not a citizen of this country!'

Published: 19 hours ago

Joe Kovacs

Did Barack Obama just encourage illegal aliens to vote on Election Day, promising no repercussions if they do?

A videotaped interview with the president has some saying yes, sparking outrage among at least one major media figure and commenters on Twitter.

In an interview with the Latin-oriented YouTube channel mitu, millennial actress Gina Rodriguez asked Obama:

“Many of the millennials, Dreamers, undocumented citizens – and I call them citizens because the contribute to this country – are fearful of voting. So if I vote, will Immigration know where I live? Will they come for my family and deport us?”

Encouraging those to break the law to subvert the government, isn’t that one definition of sedition?

Obama Appears to Condone Illegal Immigrant Voting

Critics note president declined to correct interviewer, gave purposefully confusing answer on illegal voting

by Brendan Kirby | Updated 06 Nov 2016 at 7:15 PM

Voting-integrity advocates Sunday blasted President Obama for seeming to condone voting by illegal immigrants.

Obama made his comments in an interview Thursday with millennial actress Gina Rodriguez, and the video gained widespread attention this weekend. Rodriguez told Obama that “Dreamers, undocumented citizens — and I call them citizens because they contribute to this country — are fearful of voting.” She asked if they would be deported.

“Well, it’s a felony. But it’s the completion of a multi-year effort by the Left to get aliens on the rolls … This is not a surprise at all to me.”

The law is unambiguous — only citizens may vote. It is, in fact, the most visible right of citizenship. But critics said Obama did not make that clear in his answer: “Not true. And the reason is, first of all, when you vote, you are a citizen yourself. And there is not a situation where the voting rolls somehow are transferred over and people start investigating, etc. The sanctity of the vote is strictly confidential in terms of who you voted for. If you have a family member who maybe is undocumented, then you have an even greater reason to vote.”

J. Christian Adams, president of the Public Interest Legal Foundation, told LifeZette on Sunday that Obama’s answer fits a pattern of looking the other way when it comes to the integrity of the voter rolls.

“Well, it’s a felony,” he said. “But it’s the completion of a multi-year effort by the Left to get aliens on the rolls … This is not a surprise at all to me.”

Noncitizens, Voting Violations and U.S. Elections


Download the PDF of this Backgrounder.

The United States sends election monitors around the world to help discourage fraudulent balloting. But, here at home, it has largely turned a blind eye to the possibility that fraudulent voting by noncitizens could influence the outcome of an election. Our voter registration system is susceptible to abuse by noncitizens.

In addition, noncitizens and illegal aliens are counted when apportioning congressional districts and when allocating state electors under the Electoral College. This means noncitizens play a role in determining how many congressional representatives a state has and exert an indirect influence on presidential elections.

U.S. Elections Are Vulnerable to Noncitizen Voting Fraud

Mass immigration has had a significant effect on American electoral politics. Despite the fact that it is a crime for aliens to vote in federal elections, noncitizens and illegal aliens are counted when apportioning congressional districts. 1 This means that areas with large numbers of illegal alien residents gain additional representatives in Congress.

In addition, there is evidence that both foreign nationals who are lawfully present in the United States and illegal aliens have voted in recent elections. During this election cycle, noncitizens have been discovered on voter registration rolls in both Virginia and Pennsylvania. 2 And the Office of the U.S. Attorney for the Western District of New York recently announced that it charged a Canadian woman with making a false claim to citizenship after she registered and voted in more than 20 elections.3

Several past elections – for the presidency and other offices – have been extremely close. Accordingly, ballots cast by noncitizen voters have the potential to improperly alter the outcome of elections. Consider how close the 2000 presidential election was. Could the outcome have been affected by noncitizen voting? The answer is yes.

With the 2016 election fast approaching, and candidates publicly alleging that the system is rigged, the possibility exists that voting by noncitizens could significantly influence the results. Many immigrants’ rights groups contend that noncitizen voting constitutes a harmless misunderstanding of the rules and should not cause great concern. However, this approach undermines the rule of law. It also enables individuals whose interests may not coincide with those of the American people to exert influence on our domestic politics. Given the rate at which both the legal and illegal alien populations have been allowed to grow, the United States should be concerned with ensuring that the electoral power of U.S. citizens is not undermined and with protecting the United States from foreign influence through “diaspora diplomacy.”

Noncitizen Voting Is Illegal

Elections in the United States are governed by a complicated mix of federal, state, and municipal election laws. As a rule, noncitizens are prohibited from voting and are subject to criminal penalties if they do.
State Elections
With very limited exceptions, noncitizen voting is illegal under the relevant statutes of all fifty states. 4 However, laws requiring voting registrants and voters to establish proof of citizenship have been repeatedly challenged in recent years. 5 The most frequent objections to these reasonable measures are that voter fraud is a “myth” and that voter ID requirements will unreasonably interfere with the right to vote. 6 However, these claims seem patently unreasonable given that there have been numerous reports of unlawful voting by aliens but no virtually no reports of voters being disenfranchised.7

Marking a disturbing new trend, several municipalities in Maryland have begun allowing noncitizens to vote in town elections; and the City of Chicago now allows noncitizen voting in school advisory council elections.8 To date, no state has extended noncitizen voting beyond municipal elections. This, however, remains a major area of concern. State efforts to extend the franchise to noncitizens undermine the rule of law; blur the distinctions between citizens and noncitizens; and render U.S. elections susceptible to both fraud and foreign influence.
Federal Elections
The National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (NVRA) requires that persons registering to vote in federal elections affirm that they are United States Citizens. Failure to do so is a crime punishable under the following statutes:

Pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 611, it is a crime – punishable by a fine and up to one year in prison – for an alien to vote in a federal election.
Pursuant to 8 U.S.C. § 1227, any alien who has voted in violation of any Federal, State, or local constitutional provision, statute, ordinance, or regulation is deportable.
Pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1973gg-10(2) any false statement concerning an applicant’s citizenship status that is made on a registration form submitted to election authorities is a crime.
Pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 911 knowing and willful false assertions of United States citizenship in order to vote are punishable by up to three years in prison.
Pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 1015(f) it is a criminal offense for an individual to make a false statement or claim that he or she is a citizen of the United States in order to register or to vote.

Noncitizen Voting Is Easy..

Obama might be too dumb to notice that elections are run by the states. He can crow all he wants how he won’t prosecute the illegal voters, but he can’t stop the states from capturing and jailing them. It’s time for the states to broadcast that.

The fact that the US courts keep blocking common sense voter ID laws as exist in almost every western democracy (including us rubes up here in Canada), on the premise that such laws are “racist”, is unfathomable to me. There are hundreds of documented cases of voter fraud by illegals and/or multiple voting that justify the need for this basic protection for the democratic system. Not sure how accurate this Wik entry is, but it has a list of countries requiring voter ID. This is not some shocking plot to suppress minority CITIZENS from voting.

If Trump wins ... there are going to be a lot of “members of congress” that are going to suddenly change their ways. (And every damned one of them should be investigated!)

They can’t, they are complicit in the Kenyanesian Usurpation.

President Trump needs to do a purge of the higher ups (at least three levels) of every Federal department, agency and commission, starting with Justice, IRS and FBI. Until the rule of law is restored in America he has no chance of effecting real change. It won’t matter what laws he is able to pass unless they are enforced and upheld in the courts.

Trump Surge Freakout: More Violence Against Supporters
As Election Day nears and the GOP nominee rises, attacks on his backers, signs and buildings are escalating

by Matthew Vadum | Updated 05 Nov 2016 at 10:30 PM

Physical attacks on Donald Trump supporters and their personal property appear to be growing increasingly common as Election Day approaches and passions intensify.

As LifeZette recently reported, there was a foiled assassination attempt at a Trump rally and many Trump supporters have been beaten up or hit with flying objects throughout the course of the fall campaign.

“I think there is desperation by Democrats that Trump is actually gaining in the polls and it looks real good that he’s going to win.”

While the mainstream media has relentlessly promoted Hillary Clinton’s candidacy, it has largely ignored or downplayed these violent attacks against supporters of Donald Trump.

For example, the national media paid little attention to a Trump supporter being shot by a Trump detractor in Ohio.

In late July an unidentified 60-year-old man was shot in the leg at Winston’s Bar on Cleveland’s East Side. His assailant, Darnell Hall, 45, shot him after their discussion of presidential politics grew heated. The attacker “was enraged that anyone in the overwhelmingly African-American bar would support the GOP nominee,” the Plain Dealer reports. Hall later surrendered to police and was charged with felonious assault.

Two UCLA students told Sean Hannity on Oct. 25 they’ve seen a lot of anti-Trump violence on campus. Haley Nieves said protesters crashed one of their pro-Trump rallies. “They were stomping on the American flag during the event and even attempting to burn it afterward.” Dominique Blair said, “You face crazy leftist mobs that are not tolerant of your views whatsoever, and it turns into a lot of bad debates. Sometimes violent, sometimes hitting and fights. I’ve been all around it.” Blair added, “I am treated very poorly on my campus and other campuses. It’s very hard to be a conservative activist in Los Angeles.”

ALERT: Trump Could Destroy The Local Economies

Illegal immigrants are boycotting Arizona by the thousands and moving elsewhere - showing their outrage with Donald Trump’s proposed law of sending illegal immigrants back to their native countries.

In the small town of Guadalupe, AZ, south of Phoenix, Manuel Renaldo is one of those who are vowing to punish Arizona by leaving.

As he loaded his stolen car with his taxpayer-furnished belongings and family of ten, Renaldo told this reporter through an interpreter: “It’s a matter of principle; I refuse to be supported by a state that treats me like a criminal!”

The effects of the exodus are already being felt by some Arizona retailers, who are reporting dwindling thefts and sales of beer, tequila, spray paint, and ammunition. Also hit hard are the state hospitals, which have reported a dramatic decline in births and emergency room visits.
State welfare agencies are preparing to lay off staffs that distribute food stamps and unemployment benefits.

Tattoo parlors are in an absolute state of panic!

Renaldo told a reporter, through an interpreter, that he and his family are moving to Canada, with a new Liberal government under Justin Trudeau and new higher taxes, hardworking people will better support him and his family with dignity!

Kinda Brings A Tear To Your Eye, Don’t It?
