Finding out who is and isn't a US citizen is difficult to do without access to confidential immigration databases. FOX Undercover found the four after checking just a few dozen names of criminal defendants facing deportation against voter databases, making it highly likely that many more non-citizens are among the nearly 36,000-thousand registered voters in Lawrence.
Lawrence mayor Willie Lantigua wouldn't return our phone calls, so FOX Undercover investigative reporter Mike Beaudet caught up with him outside City Hall.
"Wanted to talk to you about the voter list in the city," Beaudet said, but Lantigua just said "Hello" and continued walking to his truck.
"We found some problems there are people who are registered - you're not going to talk to us sir. Aren't you the mayor of the city? Sir why can't you just answer some questions?" Beaudet said as Lantigua got in his truck and drove away.
Lawrence activist Wayne Hayes said he's not surprised at FOX Undercover's findings.

"I believe 15 to 20 percent of the voters in Lawrence are non-citizen registered voters," Hayes said. "The voter list is definitely corrupt...it needs one major, full investigation."

No surprise there. I'm sure millions of them voted throughout the country.

Almost at the end of the article:

Quote:
"There must be," replied [Jessica] Vaughan [with the Center for Immigration Studies]. "Other states that have made an effort to vet their voter registration lists have found thousands of people on their voter lists and thousands of people who have voted in recent elections who are not citizens." Those non-citizens were found in Colorado and Florida after secretaries of state there sued to force federal immigration authorities to check their states' voter rolls.


Colorado:
Quote:
After [Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler's] office sent letters to 3,903 registered voters questioning their status, the number of noncitizens now stands at 141, based on checks using a federal immigration database. Of those 141, Gessler said 35 have voted in the past. The 141 are .004 percent of the state's nearly 3.5 million voters.


Florida:
Quote:
Florida eventually narrowed its list of suspected noncitizens to 2,600 and found that 207 of them weren't citizens, based on its use of the federal database called SAVE, or the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements. ...The state has more than 11.4 million registered voters, so the 207 amounts to .001 percent of the voter roll.


It appears that even CIS representatives like Jessica Vaughan can't get their "thousands" right, but FOX News will still interview her and local Lawrence, Massachusetts "activist" Wayne Hayes that estimates "15 to 20 percent of registered voters" (numbering almost 36,000) in the city are "non-citizens" (which would be 5,400 to 7,200 people, about twenty times higher in one small town than in the states of Florida and Colorado combined)...

We must be the only country in the world that makes no attempt to prevent fraud and that allows non-citizens including those who have come here illegally to vote in our elections.

The politicians obviously know illegals vote -- or they wouldn't have done so much pandering to them.

I bet if Mexico applied to become the 51st state it would happen before Puerto Rico becomes a state.

On the link for Mexican immigration:

Yeah, get rid of those damn Americans. Who would want that white trash? Of course they want to see documentation to insure that those expats won't be a burden on their government.

As far as El Presidente is concerned we're all family. We the American tax payers are their mothers and fathers and they are the kids. As long as we continue to provide welfare, WIC and Section 8 for illegals and their anchors and allow them to financially rape us annually. Add to and stir the pot with by sending tax return refunds to the kids that they file returns for that have never set foot on American soil and we have a recipe for the most dysfunctional family in the history of the free world.
