The attempt to influence the American election process does not come from a Trump-Russia collusion. It comes from left-wing power grabs influenced by groups such as La Raza and funded by the deep pockets of George Soros. This is easily done through ineligible non-citizens’ votes.

The 2018 midterm elections are just around the corner. Voting is only ten weeks away – less for those who vote early.

There is one group of voters to be aware of – illegal aliens. This block should not be voting. It is wrong, illegal, and immoral. Only citizens, those who are legitimately franchised, should be allowed to vote. Some of a certain political persuasion warmly welcome illegal voters for their own benefit disregarding the integrity of our democratic system.

Many legal aliens who gained citizenship the hard way object to illegals gaining the right to vote. Regardless of President Trump’s opposition to amnesty, several groups back “comprehensive immigration reform.” Progressive organizations funded by left-wing radical liberal activist George Soros along with many Democrats and Republicans support a free pass to literally millions of illegals already in the US. If this picture were being painted by the numbers, this is what it would look like.

Several states, to ensure only American citizens vote in elections, enacted statewide voter ID laws. The Obama Justice Department on a regular basis used the federal courts to block enforcement of these state laws. To add insult to injury, a majority of state-enacted laws requiring ID checks at the polls to protect against voter fraud have been struck down by federal judges. The Trump Justice Department should immediately drop any lawsuit challenging state efforts to enact ballot integrity measures like voter ID laws.

Some (not all) states report spending as much as $3.3 billion a year on increased costs for education, healthcare, and law enforcement to directly service illegal aliens. If those people and groups who support the continued flow of illegal aliens into the US get their way, these cost can only go up as more illegals gain access to public services.

Approximately 1.5 million school children of illegal aliens living in the US avail themselves of taxpayer-funded education. As the illegal alien population grows along with their school-age children, so does the bill for educating children of illegal aliens. The combined cost for this group for all states for the last year was $7.7 billion. Concurrent with the growth of the illegal alien population are the number of citizens who balk at footing the bill for educating children of people who are not citizens and should not be in the US in the first place.

Then there are the sanctuary jurisdictions typically controlled by Democrat officials and the Democrat party. These US cities, counties, and states prohibit or limit local police from cooperating with federal immigration authorities on issues such as incarceration and deportation of criminal illegal aliens. Laws, ordinances, and other policies don’t just happen. They are enacted by elected officials. Sanctuary jurisdictions such as Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City, and Washington, DC have made clear they will not discontinue their sanctuary policies.

Needless to say, illegal aliens will vote their wallets, pocketbooks, and best interests to keep sanctuary policies in place and dollars flowing to programs from which they benefit.

This raises two questions. First, what are the sanctuary policies in your community or state? Second, who are the elected officials that enacted those sanctuary policies? The people voted officials in. The people can vote them out.

President Trump and his administration has a multi-point immigration enforcement plan including a border wall and barrier channeling the flow of persons to select points of entry, augmented deportation assets facilitating greater alien removal capability, and increase pressure on illegal alien accommodation including sanctuary cities and states. For this he has received considerable grief from Democrats, some Republicans, and a wide array of progressives. In spite of the resistance, Trump enjoys an even wider support of his immigration plan than all of the opposition combined.
