There are an estimated 11 million immigrants living illegally in the U.S. This sad fact could be crucial to the presidential election. These illegal immigrants will be watching from the sidelines, their future in the hands of others. Under the U.S. Constitution, only full citizens can vote. That means green card holders also are not allowed to cast a ballot.
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has spoken of fears of election fraud or that immigrants living illegally in the country might vote. The fact is, they have been taking part in get-out-the-vote efforts among citizens. Is that right?
In places like New York, California, Arizona and Virginia, these illegals are knocking on doors and making telephone calls, registering people and urging them to go to the polls. Yet even though these people cannot vote, their pre-Election Day efforts make a difference.
It is no secret as to why the Democrats, such as Hillary Clinton who said it publicly, are for open borders. They are perceived by those entering illegally as the party providing free housing, medical care, government subsidies and all the rest; not the American taxpayer.
It is a real problem for the Republican Party now, and it may be their undoing in as little as four-years if Hillary Clinton wins. It is safe to say that the balance of those Americans receiving government checks of any kind and those that don’t will tilt toward the former before the 2020 presidential election.
