The Illegal Alien Swing Vote

The right to

is precious, the

politicians preach.
Our democracy hangs in the
balance, the pundits screech.

Yes, but if we
all value the

sanctity of the voting process
so highly, why is it
that I`ve never once been asked to produce
identification of any kind in the 16 years I`ve been a
voter, from

to California to

Washington State


And why is it

we can`t protect our elections
from people who have

right to vote,
no right to be here, and no right to
undermine our



While unhinged
Democrats spread

  about the alleged

discriminatory disenfranchisement

American citizens,
they have supported the
indiscriminate enfranchisement of untold numbers of
foreign outlaws—including suspected al Qaeda operatives
and terrorist sympathizers.

Last week, the
Columbus Dispatch reported that illegal alien
Nuradin Abdi—the suspected

shopping mall bomb plotter

—was registered to vote in the battleground
state of Ohio by

the Association of Community Organizations for Reform
Now (ACORN),
a left-wing activist group. Also on the
Ohio voting rolls: convicted al Qaeda agent

Iyman Faris,
who planned to sabotage the Brooklyn
Bridge and had entered the country fraudulently from
Pakistan on a student visa.[ "Long
gone but still registered Ohio`s Election Day rolls
include people who couldn`t—and shouldn`t—vote

In the
battleground state of Florida, indicted terror suspect
Sami Al-Arian

illegally cast his ballot
in a Tampa referendum in
1994 while his citizenship application was pending. He
claimed the unlawful vote was the result of a
State officials declined to

You`ve heard
about those satirical “10 out of 10 terrorists agree:
Anybody But Bush”
bumper stickers? There may be more
truth to them than you think. John Fund, author of

Stealing Elections: How Voter Fraud Threatens Our
, reports that at least

eight of the 19
Sept. 11 hijackers were

eligible to vote
in Virginia or Florida while they

plotted to kill Americans.

What`s to stop
the next foreign terrorist plotter from casting a
tainted ballot in the nation he has sworn to destroy?
Not much. According to the Franklin County Board of
Elections, the Dispatch reports, the office
simply “takes a person`s word, that they`re (sic)
a U.S. citizen."

In the
battleground state of Wisconsin, the story is the same
for those who are responsible for registering other
people to vote. Not only do we regularly do nothing to
verify the citizenship of people voting, but we also
shrug our shoulders at the citizenship status of
election workers.  I recently obtained a disturbing set
of investigative reports from the

Federation for American Immigration Reform
outlining how the city of Racine neglects to ask deputy
registrar applicants for identification or proof of

FAIR`s investigation also alleges
that a deputy registrar in Racine registered two
individuals—one posing as an admitted illegal alien—and
reportedly advised them to lie on their forms. The
report notes that the deputy registrar—working
the open borders lobbying group, Voces de la
Frontera—then gave the couple information on other

illegal alien benefits,

employment rights

bank accounts.

Law enforcement
officials in Wisconsin—which has been swamped with voter
fraud shenanigans—have copies of the report, affidavits
from the couple who dealt with the registrar, and
recordings of their conversations. But no action, if
any, is likely until after the Nov. 2 election.

Democrats at the
state and federal levels have aggressively courted the
illegal alien swing vote. The most-egregious

, of course, was the taxpayer-funded

Citizenship USA program
under the

Clinton-Gore administration,
which abandoned
criminal background checks to naturalize 1.3 million
immigrants (including scores of criminal alien felons)

time for the 1996 elections.

Ethnic and racial grievance groups,
with backing
from the likes of

Hillary Clinton

Ted Kennedy
, have forcefully opposed

basic ID requirements
at the polls. And they have
armies of lawyers standing by to assist them.
Responsible election officials who ask for proof of
citizenship will be

of harassment
and intimidation.”
They will be accused of causing a “chilling
never mind the corrosive effect of unchecked
illegal alien

voter fraud
on law, order, and the integrity of our
electoral system.
