Just months after handing out California driver's licenses to illegals, Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a law to automatically register every driver to vote. Supposedly, it's to raise turnout. More likely, it's inviting fraud.
. . .
More to the point, illegals can do most of their paperwork over the Internet on the honor system and then obtain licenses by presenting a foreign passport or other recognized identification — including, ironically, a Mexican voting card — to a local DMV.
After that, the same-day license will follow and from there, voter registration. The California database is explicitly not searchable for non-citizens, Churchwell notes. What's more, a rider was slipped into the bill to exempt illegals who vote from prosecution.
Churchwell says that his organization found earlier that applications were being turned in with the voter applications still attached, even on illegals, until his organization got the state to stop it.
But what's disturbing is the disingenuous reason why Brown and his Democratic machine buddies such as Padilla are citing: low voter turnout.
They say that it's because too few voters are registered. After all, cities such as Huntington Park, South Gate, and Cudahy — all famous for the banana-republic-level corruption of their public officials — have voter turnout rates in the neighborhood of 11%.
Far from a lack of motivation, these low-turnout areas are strongholds of illegal immigration. Illegals can't vote now — but with everyone registered and Padilla's office not concerned about checking anyone's status, the illegals will be casting votes that cancel the ballot choice of legitimate U.S. citizens and disenfranchise Americans in their own country.
