It is now apparent that the reason why Democrats don’t want to secure our border is because it would take away from their voter base. They do not want a wall because they know it would work both to stop illegal immigration but also politically for President Trump.
We knew voter fraud was rampant, but the latest report indicates it’s worst than we thought.
Texas AG Ken Paxton announced on Twitter that 58,000 non-citizens voted in Texas alone, on multiple occasions.
VOTER FRAUD ALERT: The @TXsecofstate discovered approx 95,000 individuals identified by DPS as non-U.S. citizens have a matching voter registration record in TX, approx 58,000 of whom have voted in TX elections. Any illegal vote deprives Americans of their voice.

Texas Secretary of State David Whitley announced on Friday the results of a year-long investigation into voter fraud.
Whitley said his office has identified 95,000 non-citizens who are currently registered to vote in of Texas — 58,000 of whom have voted in one or more election.
Texas Secretary of State spokesman Sam Taylor says they “are very confident” the citizenship data used is current.
Voting rights activists called the numbers suspect and expressed concerns that eligible voters will wind up being purged from voter rolls.
Texas in recent years has aggressively prosecuted voter fraud cases and has one of the nation’s toughest voter ID laws.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton issued the following statement on the matter:
“Every single instance of illegal voting threatens democracy in our state and deprives individual Texans of their voice. We’re honored to have partnered with the Texas Secretary of State’s office in the past on voter initiatives and we will spare no effort in assisting with these troubling cases. My Election Fraud Unit stands ready to investigate and prosecute crimes against the democratic process when needed. We have obtained a number of successful non-citizen voter fraud convictions, including prison sentences for Rosa Ortega in Tarrant County and Laura Garza in Montgomery County. And earlier this month, investigators from our office arrested Marites Curry, a non-citizen charged with illegal voting in Navarro County. Nothing is more vital to preserving our Constitution than the integrity of our voting process, and my office will do everything within its abilities to solidify trust in every election in the state of Texas. I applaud Secretary of State Whitley for his proactive work in safeguarding our elections.”
