During the weeks leading up to the presidential election, Donald Trump and the Republican Party accused Barack Obama and the Democrats of illegal processing immigrants in order to increase the number of voters for Hillary Clinton. Recently, a new poll has confirmed that there are currently about 2 million non-citizen Hispanics who are registered to vote in the U.S.
This revelation stems from the study conducted by McLaughlin and Associates in 2013. As part of the survey, the organization conducted a survey on the number of Hispanic voters in the U.S. Out of the 800 surveyed individuals, 56 percent or 448 were non-citizens. However, the study also revealed that 13 percent of this sub-group were registered to vote.
James Agresti of the non-profit research group Just Facts then used the data collected by McLaughlin and Associates and applied it to the current population of non-citizen Hispanics in the country, which is about 11.8 million according to the U.S. Census. After applying the data, Agresti came to the conclusion that the number of non-citizen Hispanics who are registered to vote ranges from 1 to 2.1 million.
“Contrary to the claims of many media outlets and so-called fact-checkers, this nationally representative scientific poll confirms that a size able number of non-citizens in the U.S. are registered to vote,” Agresti said according to the Washington Times.
These illegally registered individuals could have swayed the results of the election if all of them voted. But whether they voted or not, federal law still considers this as a felony since it is illegal for non-citizens of a country to register for a national election.
Hopefully, Trump will be able to uncover this issue through the voter fraud task force he recently established. Under the guidance of Vice President Mike Pence, this task force will investigate the recent election to determine if votes or the profiles of voters have been tampered with.
