If you can’t get the votes of enough citizens to win an election, just create new ones.
Emails stemming from a sub-agency in the Department of Homeland Security shows that the Houston field office of U.S. Customs and Immigration Services is asking employees to consider working overtime in order to process as many naturalization applications as possible.
It’s widely accepted that non-citizens tend to cast their ballots for Democrats. The Obama Administration must believe that newly-minted citizens will follow suit.

Here we go again. The Indiana State Police are investigating a voter registration group that has submitted fraudulent voter registration forms in Marion and Hendricks counties, the first and tenth largest in the state, respectively.
The group under investigation calls itself the Indiana Voter Registration Project. According to investigators, the group submitted numerous complete registration forms that were missing key information, such as Social Security numbers and birth dates. When local election officials reached out to those voters, they said they never filled out the registration forms.
Although Indiana requires voters to show identification if they vote in person at their local precinct, that requirement does not apply to voters who request an absentee ballot. Fraudsters could therefore use the bogus applications to request and submit absentee ballots using others’ identities.
It remains a secret who established or funded the Indiana Voter Registration Project. However, the group released a statement through spokeswoman Christy Setzer, whose PR firm’s website says she has worked as a Democratic strategist for the presidential campaigns of Al Gore, Howard Dean and Chris Dodd.
Amid the chorus of denial from certain political segments, evidence of voter fraud consistently emerges, time after time.
The latest involves 149 cases of suspected double-voting uncovered by the North Carolina-based Voting Integrity Project. In one such case, an individual actual voted three times, in three different states. The fraudster, Pasco Parker, cast three ballots in the 2012 presidential election.
Why is voting in more than one state so easy?
Well, a 2012 Pew Center on The States study revealed that “approximately 2.75 million people have registrations in more than one state.”
The evidence uncovered by the Voting Integrity Project is clear evidence that additional safeguards are needed to prevent fraud and make elections fair.
