Most Democrats Want Illegal Immigrants to Vote
Who would benefit?
According to a recent poll from Rasmussen, a shockingly high number of Democrats think that non-citizens should be allowed to vote in America’s elections:
Most Democrats Think Illegal Immigrants Should Vote
Are voters ready to let illegal immigrants vote? A sizable number, including most Democrats, are.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that one-out-of-three Likely U.S. Voters (35%) now believes that illegal immigrants should be allowed to vote if they can prove they live in this country and pay taxes. Sixty percent (60%) disagree, while five percent (5%) are undecided.
Fifty-three percent (53%) of Democrats think tax-paying illegal immigrants should have the right to vote. Twenty-one percent (21%) of Republicans and 30% of voters not affiliated with either major political party agree.
The reason so many Democrats support this idea is obvious. It would increase their voter ranks immensely. It’s stunning that any Republican would agree with such an idea.
Allahpundit of Hot Air has more:
Between this and the latest hate-speech polling, Democrats (especially younger ones) are brimming with good ideas these days. If you want to be charitable, you can tell yourself that maybe some Dems would insist on a lengthy residency requirement in lieu of citizenship before letting them vote — say, 10 years minimum in the U.S. to prove they’re committed to having a stake in the country’s future.
But Rasmussen’s question didn’t ask about that; the only conditions were residence of some unspecified duration and paying taxes. Presumably, in the Democratic utopia, an illegal who came across the border a year ago and is having FICA taken out of his pay before remitting a chunk of it to family in Mexico would/should have just as much influence over who controls the U.S. government as you do.
Thomas Lifson of American Thinker points out the endgame:
So, once the pendulum swings and Democrats gain control of Congress and the White House, we can expect Democrats to solidify their permanent control of government by legalizing what is already becoming a de facto reality: allowing people who manage to cross our borders without bothering to observe our laws or commit to the obligations of citizenship the right to determine our political future. Since the requirements of law mean nothing to these people, why not vote twice?
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
Of course Democrats also vehemently oppose voter identification laws. Luckily for them, many states are now issuing driver’s licenses to illegal aliens.
What happened to Real ID?
Haven’t you heard?
They want illegals to vote because that means more Democratic votes. That is the start, middle and beginning of their reasoning. All the rest is smokescreen.
This offers a perfect window into Democratic thinking. They aren’t interested in democracy or anything else so abstract. They are interested in power first, last and always. Anything that gets them there is great. Anything in the way is racist. And once they have pow2er, any limits on it are indefensible.
Dems have it all figures out that the illegals will all vote the way they want them to vote. That isn’t a given. The illegals might want some things that the rest of the dems won’t want them to have and then it will be too late. These narrow thinkers never consider that there might be alternative outcomes.
Based on some of the “man on the street” interview videos I have seen, there is a good chance many people would agree to extending the vote to all residents of Planet Earth.
Well, the Jugeared Jackass thought the whole planet was allowed to donate to his campaigns. So there’s that.
21% of Republicans believe that illegal immigrants should be allowed to vote if they can prove they live in this country and pay taxes.
The country is screwed, lol.
This is a result of the leftward lurch of the GOP over the last decade or so, but especially since 2011.
Ten more years of this and the GOP will be pushing abortion harder than Planned Parenthood, growing the federal bureaucracy under some PC derived ‘compassionate centralized government’ plan, and converting every defense dollar possible to fatten entitlements.
Think that’s nuts? Five years ago, would you have believed that very soon one in five Republicans would support giving the vote to illegal immigrants? That is de facto citizenship.
Henry, I am pretty sure that a figure like 21% GOP shows that this is a push poll. I have yet to personally hear any GOP advocate aliens to vote and I live in a state (WA) where the GOP is infested with progressives.
You probably don’t associate with Republicans liberal enough to advocate giving the vote to illegals, but I have absolutely no doubt they are out there. At first glance, 21% seems way too high, but not long ago I would have never believed that every single GOP candidate who is even hinting they might run has, at one point or another, in some form or another, endorsed amnesty for illegal aliens.
It is typical for an individual candidate to move to the left or right of an opponent depending on which remaining range holds the most voters. The entire GOP has moved to the immediate right of the Democrats – but the current Democrat Party is waaaay left. The space the GOP occupies now would’ve been considered centrist or moderate Democrat thirty years ago. Policy positions shift along with the party.
As shown with the dismal performances of GOP picks McCain and Romney, plus their current golden boy, Jeb Bush, the GOP continues the leftward push, which means the GOP continues its losing ways.
When you start from the premise of hating…HATING…you own country, why the fluck would you NOT want people from a third-world socialist paradise…that they ran from…to be able to come here and put it to us?
Most Democrats want illegal immigrants to vote.
That’s an amusing and unintentional double entendre. The straight meaning was that Democrats want illegal immigrants to be allowed to vote even though not citizens [and even though illegal]. The double entendre meaning was that Democrats want illegal immigrants to flood America, knowing that when they eventually vote, legal or illegal, they’ll vote Democrat.
Not that I already knew this, but the United States is doomed. There should have been a loyalty clause in the Constitution, so treason against it could be realistically enforced.
Allowing non-citizens to vote is a violation of citizen voting rights, as it dilutes our natural right protected by the 15th Amendment.
Furthermore, under the Golden Rule, anyone who advocates for illegal immigration is giving everyone an invitation to take up residence on his property. I want to squat in Jeb’s mansion out of love for my family.
It’s ironic that Leftists are so opposed to outsourcing given that, whether here on in Europe, it’s own immigration policy proscriptions are essentially an outsourcing of their “revolution.”
Illegal immigration voting is a means to an anti-nationalistic and a Luis Gutierrez re-election type end under the guise of ‘humanitarianism’. In other words, for the Democrats to win they will need a hoard of pro-American-food-stamp low-information voters.
We have Obama and the Dems to thank for devaluing the legal citizen’s vote with gimmickry, social-media generated lawlessness-based ‘hope’ and phone-yism.
We have the ‘popular’ fictions of the Zinns and Chomsky-ites to thank for America bashing by the safely ensconced in America cocktail party elite.
The rank stupidity of this position is really shocking to me. What kind of moron thinks it a good idea for someone who is not a citizen of this country to have a vote? Can they not think through the ramifications? Seriously, they must be retarded.
What European socialist paradise even allows this?
What kind of silly question is that? You know the dems would benefit.
Amnesty & free stuff wins everytime with them
They ( illegals) shouldnt be allowed to vote.
