    58,000 illegals in Texas voted

    AUSTIN, Texas (KWTX) A yearlong investigation involving the Texas Department of Public Safety revealed that 95,000 non-citizens are registered to vote in the state and that 58,000 of them have voted in one or more elections, Secretary of State David Whitley announced Friday.

    Perhaps this will help us better understand why Pelosi, Schumer and many Democrats are reluctant to build a Wall.

    Yeah horrific….

    Soooo 58K out of 15 MILLION registered voters in Texas MAY have not been eligible to vote and did.... rend garment and throw ashes!!!!!!

    I guess Republican't only tolerate voter fraud when it benefits them- like in North Carolina....

    But let's review the track record of Republican'ts and voter rolls- far too often the headlines ends up being more a case of administrative bungling than any true fraud. How many times have the Republican'ts purged the voter roles or attempted to deny a voter the right to vote only for it to have been in error????

    Let's wait and see how many actual cases of fraud occurred, then compare that to North Carolina before opining who embraces voter fraud....

    For the record - "non-citizen" does NOT mean illegal!

    With that said....Perhaps it's time TX got its act together and STOP sending out voter registration cards and jury duty notices to ANY person with a drivers license/SSN. You are not required to be a citizen to get a DL in this state and unfortunately this incompetent segment of our government provides the list of people that should be sent voter registration cards or jury summons. When I 1st came here and got my SSN and drivers license within in a month I was sent my 1st jury duty summons....I was only a resident not a citizen at the time! Thanks goodness I understood this was a mistake and not something I was authorized to do unless I was a citizen but I can also see how someone may not understand the process to make them eligible to vote or required to appear for jury duty.

    Doesn't help to understand it, it helps to demonstrate it. We're waaaaay past the point of wondering.

    You might be seeing headlines or tweets tonight that claim Texas says 58,000 non-citizens have voted in Texas.

    That is not true.

    Of those 95,000, 58,000 individuals cast a ballot in one or more elections from 1996 to 2018.

    That is a 22 year time period.

    Of course, we understand why you and most other liberals will try to muddy the waters when you stand to gain a good majority of those potential 11 million illegal voters.

    Yeah we know liberals could care less about 58,000 illegals voting in just one state when those votes go to them.

    Ahh... so now you know why Republicans have made voter suppression their goal for the last 10 years or so. I'm glad now you know why voter suppression laws have been struck down as unconstitutional in many states as they targeted legal Democratic votes. Thank you for being honest.
