Would you expect anything less from the left coast? The latest sanctuary state is pushing the envelope even farther by now registering illegal aliens to vote, when they apply for driver’s licenses.
On April 1, a new law will go into effect in California that will automatically register people to vote through the Department of Motor Vehicles, including aliens who are in the country illegally.
Back on October 10, 2015, California Governor Jerry Brown signed Assembly Bill 1461, the New Motor Voter Act, which automatically registers people to vote when they apply for a new driver’s license or new state ID through the DMV. Because this process lacks the safeguards present in traditional voter registration procedures, it could result in illegal aliens voting.
The day after the bill was signed, a reporter for the Washington Times noted that the under the new law, all Californians would automatically be registered to vote when they obtained or renewed their driver’s licenses at the DMV, instead of being required to fill out a separate form.
The Times report cited the anti-vote fraud groups True the Vote and the Election Integrity Project of California, which had urged Brown to veto the bill, saying it would lead to “‘state sanctioned’ voter fraud” and pointing out that the legislation exempts from penalties ineligible voters who wind up being registered.
Yes, it’s egregious to offer illegals voting privileges, but is anyone asking why they are giving driving privileges to illegals in the first place? And why isn’t ICE hanging out at the DMV? They could single handedly round up most of the illegals in California.
