Nearly 2 million non-citizen Hispanics registered to vote
President Trump’s investigation of voter fraud in the wake of his claim that he would have won the nationwide popular vote if 3 million to 5 million illegal immigrants hadn’t voted just got a boost.
Already, an analysis by a political scientist at Old Dominion University, Jesse Richman, estimated Hillary Clinton received 834,381 net votes from noncitizens on Nov. 8.
Now, an analysis that combines a 2013 survey with U.S. Census data finds the number of illegally registered Hispanics could range from 1 million to 2.1 million.
It is derived from National Hispanic Survey, conducted in June 2013 by McLaughlin and Associates, and the number of non-citizen Hispanic adults in the U.S. Census of the same year.
The National Hispanic Survey randomly selected sample of 800 Hispanics. Fifty-six percent, or 448, said they were non-citizens, and of those, 13 percent said they were registered to vote, the Times reported.

James Agresti, director of the research nonprofit “Just Facts,” applied the 13 percent figure to the 11.8 million non-citizen Hispanic adults in the United States, which would amount to 1.5 million illegally registered Latinos.
The estimate of 1 million to 2.1 million accounts for the margin of error based on the sample size of non-citizens.
Agresti said that contrary “to the claims of many media outlets and so-called fact-checkers, this nationally representative scientific poll confirms that a sizable number of non-citizens in the U.S. are registered to vote.”
As WND reported, experts on vote fraud argue mass fraud happens at the point of registration, before a vote is cast.
Hans von Spakovsky, a senior legal fellow at the Heritage Foundation and co-author of the book “Who’s Counting? How Fraudsters and Bureaucrats Put Your Vote at Risk,” has pointed out that only seven states have strict photo ID voter laws. But even even worse, just 4 states require proof of citizenship to register.
Von Spakovsky said voter registration is based on an “honor system.”
“Nobody is checking to make sure those registering to vote are citizens,” he said.
The states that require residents to provide proof of citizenship, such as a birth certificate or passport, when they register to vote are Alabama, Arizona, Georgia and Kansas, all of which backed Trump in November.
On ABC’s “This Week” last Sunday, senior White House adviser Stephen Miller affirmed “voter fraud is something we’re going to be looking at very seriously and very hard.”
“The White House has provided enormous evidence with respect to voter fraud, with respect to people being registered in more than one state, dead people voting, non-citizens being registered to vote,” Miller said. “And as a country, we should be aghast about the fact that you have people who have no right to vote in this country, registered to vote, canceling out the franchise of lawful citizens of this country.”
Defending his estimate of up to 5 million illegal voters, Trump told the Fox News Channel’s Bill O’Reilly in his Super Bowl interview that the fraud “has to do with registration.”
“And when you look at the registration and you see dead people that have voted, when you see people that are registered in two states, that have voted in two states, when you see other things, when you see illegals, people that are not citizens and they are on the registration rolls,” Trump said.
The United States is currently bringing in a record 1.3 million legal immigrants per year, most of them on green cards and increasingly from hostile nations such as Somalia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Sudan, Saudi Arabia and Syria. A green card allows a foreign national to reside legally and permanently in the United States, as well as providing the right to work, obtain a driver’s license and social security card, purchase a gun and even serve in the U.S. military. But one of the few privileges not afforded to the green-card holder is the right to vote.
The problem is that once a foreign national with a green card is afford those other rights, there is no system in place to stop him or her from registering to vote.
In addition, an estimated 450,000 to 500,000 people illegally cross the southern border each year.
Von Spakovsky said the media is denying the obvious when insists there is no serious voter fraud in the U.S.
The Supreme Court recognized the problem in 2008 when it ruled on a case upholding a voter ID law in Louisiana.
“We have a whole file at the Heritage Foundation of convictions in courts of law, over 700 defendants convicted of voter fraud,” he said.politics, Donald Trump, Elections, Hillary Clinton, Voter Fraud, Heritage Foundation, Donald Trump , Politics , Elections , Old Dominion
