Up to 2.7 Million Noncitizens Could Vote Illegally in November, Study Warns

A new study has revealed that roughly 10% to 27% of noncitizens living in the U.S. are illicitly registered to vote, which could result in up to 2.7 million illegal votes being cast in the November elections.

Experts say the significant amount of potential illegal votes could be enough to alter election results.

The study, released last week by the research institute Just Facts, notes that the 2022 U.S. census recorded approximately 19 million adult noncitizens living in the country. “Given their voter registration rates, this means that about 2 million to 5 million of them are illegally registered to vote,” the report observes. “These figures are potentially high enough to overturn the will of the American people in major elections, including congressional seats and the presidency.”

On Tuesday, James Agresti, president of Just Facts, joined “Washington Watch” to discuss the scope of noncitizens casting ballots and the implications of the study’s findings.

“[T]here are very broad openings for noncitizens to vote,” he explained, adding:

In no state in the nation are they required to provide proof of U.S. citizenship in order to register to vote. Now, a couple of states like Arizona tried to enact that requirement, but they were blocked by a court ruling supported by the Obama administration.

And if you look at the federal voter-registration form, it says you can submit all different forms of ID to register. That could be a Social Security number; it could be a driver’s license number; or it could just be a utility bill.

I mean, these are things that anyone can get by living here. They do not prove you’re a U.S. citizen.

And more than that, a lot of noncitizens have faked Social Security numbers, especially illegal immigrants. That’s what they do to work. A recent estimate by the Social Security Administration tallied 2.5 million noncitizens who had Social Security numbers gained by using fake birth certificates or stealing those numbers from somebody else.

Hans von Spakovsky, a senior legal fellow at The Heritage Foundation and board member of the Public Interest Legal Foundation, concurred. (Heritage founded The Daily Signal in 2014.)

“[T]he problem is, states aren’t doing very much to verify citizenship, so it’s extremely easy for someone who’s not a citizen to register to vote and to vote in elections,” he remarked during Monday’s edition of “Washington Watch.”

“And when that is discovered, oftentimes nothing is done about it.”

Agresti went on to point out the effect that lax enforcement of citizen verification could have in November. “[B]ased on the latest available data, approximately 1 million to 2.7 million noncitizens are going to vote in the upcoming presidential election unless something changes. And that is more than enough to tip the results of congressional races, Senate races, and yes, the U.S. presidency.”

Von Spakovsky echoed Agresti’s concerns. “[I]t doesn’t matter whether they’re black or white, Asian or Hispanic. It doesn’t matter which political party they support. Every time an alien illegally votes, that alien is voiding, negating the vote of a citizen, no matter which political party they support,” he contended. “And the Democrats just don’t seem to want to understand that or to basically ignore it.”

Agresti further reflected on the motivations behind the Democrats’ opposition to efforts to improve election integrity.

“[I]t’s always hard to read people’s minds, but I can tell you this: The vast bulk of these noncitizens are voting for Democrats. According to the best data we have, about 80% of them will vote for Democrats when they vote illegally. And Democrats are fighting tooth and nail to prevent any kind of checking of people’s citizenship. It does benefit them. Is that their reasoning? It’s an obvious incentive, but I can’t read their minds.”

Earlier this month, House Republicans attempted to address the issue by introducing a bill that would require proof of citizenship to register to vote and would remove noncitizens from existing voter rolls. But Agresti expressed doubt about the bill’s chances of passage. “My guess is it will move in the House and die in the Senate, but that’s just an educated guess. And again, even if somehow it got through the Senate, there’s no way [President] Joe Biden’s signing that bill.”

“However,” he added, “I do think in the aftermath of the election, and we hate to have a repeat of 2020, that there should be some accountability, some lawsuits that demand proof that people are who they say they are in tight races. None of that was secured in the last round of election lawsuits, and it needs to be there.”

Agresti concluded by urging candidates involved in tight elections to demand verification that only citizens voted. “A candidate has to make a plea and say, ‘Hey, I want this data to prove that these people who are registered and voted actually are citizens.’”

Gotta hand it to Biden, that sneer he gave the press when asked what he thought about Donald Trump’s statement saying he was a political prisoner and that he blamed Biden himself.
Biden didn’t answer, only sneered and walked away. He hesitated a moment longer to sneer again then turned and walked away knowing the the second shoe to drop is the 2.7 million illegal votes he is guaranteed to cheat his way in again.
Many people think Satan will appear as a charismatic sure footed being, perhaps he’s just a dementia ridden old fool who’s managed to fool everyone.

This Article states an import point. The Bulk of Voting Noncitizens. 80% of them Vote for Democrats. It’s Said The Millions of ‘Illegal Immigrates’ coming through the Open Southern Border are Future Voters.
If this Activity is going to Continue. Then the 44 Million ‘Legal’ Immigrants came in Legally, and Who passed all the Historical Tests Needed to Become a Legal Immigrate Resident in the US should be aloud to Vote. Btw, US Legal Immigrants can be Drafted to Defend the Country!

This was only made possible because the Military producers of weapons of war -feared that their control of government would end with the election of Trump (> he was not “ a house player”- They had to take him out EINSENHAUER was correct– WE NEED TO BREAK THE DEEP STATE UP INTO A TRILLION PIECES- AND NEVER GIVE IN TO :”FOREVER AT WAR”–THAT PARADIGM WILL END WITH TRUMP

After reading this article I ‘m concerned that we maybe in more trouble than we were expecting and we have a big problem that could be hard to resolve.
I believe it’s time America starts praying that we don’t get a response that could destroy America. We’re seeing many negatives that are of concern.
The Chinese are buying up properties and we are seeing the infiltration of the borders.
God forsake, our young are being taught by communists teachers and professors.
We need to have voters get out and vote, staying home could be a big problem, let’s start asking those we’re talking to are you voting.
Also we have sixteen million Christians who aren’t registered to vote.
We need to stop this nonsense from happening and start to get rid of the anti republicans illegals that could vote.

Here it is, what I have said ever since the Biden Administration has allowed the invasion of America by every country outside of America. I have said that this administration is registering and filing votes of illegals in boxes for the day of election. On that day these illegal votes will be cast and counted. Anyone who believes that this is not happening is a fool. This people is the must corrupt and dishonest administration ever. They will lie,cheat and steal their way to power. Don’t for a minute think that this is not happening.

If you can’t provide proper ID and or can’t speak English you should not be able to vote. Basically this males ot so even foreign students can vote here, so tell me whats the difference. If we can’t secure our borders, we can’t set right what is wrong we no longer have a nation and without the rule of Law we are sceewed.

Well then since that’s the mindset, every American should be urged to commit crimes to their own liking. After all, fat gluttons such as DA (smirk) Alvin Bragg et al frees every criminal whose paperwork crosses his desk.

Why can’t voter ID that requires verification of US citizenship to aquire be required by the states to vote? This can be used as a verification of citizenship. So what if the are registered to vote? They won’t be able to actually vote without the verification of citizenship.

2.7 million illegals? The most accurate count I have seen on the total number of illegals in the country is north of 33 million, so I would venture to say that many more than 2.7 million could vote. Then there is the repeated voting by many to add to that. If we don’t fix 2020, the vote doesn’t matter.

And. Now you know why Biden said the fix is in and Schumer admitted they wanted all illegal aliens to have a vote.
