Texas says it found 95,000 non-citizens on voter rolls; 58,000 have voted

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced Friday that the state has discovered 95,000 non-citizens on the voter rolls going back to 1996, 58,000 of whom have voted in at least one Texas election – an announcement likely to raise fresh concerns about the prospect of voter fraud.

Texas has some of the toughest voter ID laws in the nation and has been one of the main battlegrounds in the Republican-led fight against alleged voter fraud. The office, in a statement, said that 33 people were prosecuted for voter fraud last year, and 97 were prosecuted between 2005-17. There are 16 million people in Texas registered to vote.

You will, however, continue to hear from liberals how this does not happen. Heaven forbid you have to prove who you are in order to vote or that you are indeed a citizen and eligible to vote.

Why aren’t the 95,000 that voted locked up?

Now we know how “Beto” got so many votes in Texas.

Strange I didn’t hear the Progressive Socialist MSM report on this Texas Story. Isn’t it important that 58,000 illegals voted in Texas? They must have not been Russian illegals or they’d blamed Trump.

As far as they are concerned this kind of stuff never happens and conservatives are just making it up.

There should be zero tolerance and stiff sentence for this or else we will lose American to foreigners trying to take over our country. Only American citizens should decide the fate of America. It’s as simple as that.

Haven’t you heard, illegal aliens and resident aliens don’t vote. Ever. Except when they do. In every election. What, you think they actually check to see if they’re eligible before counting their votes? That only happens if they vote for Republicans. Or Bernie in the primaries.

Been hearing it for years haven’t we? Every time it’s shown to happen they go about their business ignoring what is right before their eyes.

And call you a racist for pointing it out.

I suspect a large percentage probably used false documents to get registered which will make it very hard to prosecute any of them but I hope he goes whole hog in trying to prosecute every single one that can be found and refers them to the DOJ for federal charges as well.

Keep in mind our “tough voter ID laws” have only been in effect for a few years which is of course what enabled them to do so with ease prior.

Now there’s an actual real risk of being caught and prosecuted but only in select jurisdictions.

I don’t care how they voted, everyone who even attempts to vote illegally should do significant jail or prison time and those that enable them should spend long terms in the State System.

Prosecutions take time and significant resources and the older cases no doubt are beyond statutory limitations.

Add to that those illegals with false documents many of whom have probably left the country willingly or otherwise long ago.

One of the biggest murder cases in the state in the last 25 years involved an illegal who had been living here for more than a decade on false documents who only admitted to being a Mexican Citizen/Illegal after being convicted in an attempt to get the death penalty lifted.

A big part of that was a lame campaign by Cruz. He almost acted like he really didn’t want to be reelected and put very little effort into the campaign until it became a big national issue.

He’s not the same man he was in 2016, the way Trump went after he and his family I think really hurt him deeply and took away much of his desire to continue serving in any elected office on the national stage.

Why don’t you guys have voter ID at the polling station?

We cannot vote unless proof of identity is brought with us in the UK.

Because our “representatives” who no longer actually represent us keep fighting it. We’re behind the curve in a few areas and most of the blame rests squarely with Congress. The Democrat party here doesn’t want to actually fix the problem either. They want illegals to vote because they tend to vote for Democrats.

Don’t let facts get in your way…

“In fact, The Texas Tribune reported that the Texas secretary of state’s office announced Friday it had flagged 95,000 registered voters who it said should be reviewed to determine whether they are U.S. citizens

So they didn’t say that they’re were 95,000 who registered illegally. They said that they needed to be reviewed to see if they are valid.

“Of that group, 58,000 cast a ballot in at least one election from 1996 to 2018, The Texas Tribune reported.”

The sample size is almost 20 years. So in 20 years they suspect 95,000 registered to vote illegally and 58,000 MAY HAVE casted a vote. What’s the percentage of that verse the number of votes casted?

Here is the Texas Tribune shedding more light on this subject:

But please don’t let me get in the way of the rampant voter fraud circle jerk.

So is yours.

From Texas Public Radio:

And “may have been naturalized” isn’t very convincing. According to who exactly? Certainly not the DPS who generated the list of non citizens who it turns out were voting.

This is why “sanctuary states” make it illegal for agencies to share this information. They don’t want these people caught.

How does your link contradict the information I posted?

They do not know if anyone voted illegally. Also this was over a 20 year period. Millions of votes where casted and this is what they SUSPECT for POTENTIAL illegal voting.

Doesn’t seem like a smoking gun for rampant illegal voting.

You keep making the same bogus claims over and over. The Department of Public Safety provided the list. Take it up with them.

What bogus claims? Show me the information that says with certainty that 58,000 illegals voted, in total, over 20 years?

I wonder if they voted for Robbie O’Rourke?
