On April 1st of this year, California will execute a court order that automatically registers anyone with a state-issued driver’s license to vote in elections.
- A California law, which goes into affect on April 1, will automatically register people to vote when they apply for a new driver’s license or new state ID
- Since the state allows anyone who claims to be in the country legally, even without proof, to obtain a license the law will automatically register illegal aliens
- The law, called the California New Motor Voter Act, will send DMV applications to the Secretary of State’s Office for registration
- The California New Motor Voter Act is expected to add more than two million new registrants in the first year.
The California New Motor Voter Act was signed into law in October of 2015, the same year California began a new policy allowing illegal immigrants to obtain a driver’s license, which now accounts for nearly a million drivers, according to the Sacramento Bee.
As WND reports, the new policy, intended to energize California’s lackluster voter turn-out, raises big concerns about the potential for the nearly 1 million non-citizens who hold a driver’s license in the Golden State to vote illegally.
The California Department of Motor Vehicles now will be required by law to forward the records of all licensed drivers to California Secretary of State Alex Padilla’s office to be automatically registered to vote unless a driver purposefully opts out at the DMV.
After non-citizens were given driving privileges in 2015, concerns over their impact on voter fraud were raised, leading Padilla to insist voter fraud was “nearly nonexistent.”
Coming under scrutiny, Padilla has said illegals won’t be able to vote in California, as his office is being trusted to cross-check citizenship before issuing the vote. But the new law raises eyebrows about the potential for illegal aliens to be granted the vote either by bureaucratic mishandling or intentional malfeasance.
California is home to an approximated 2.3 million illegal immigrants and Padilla’s boss, Democratic Governor Jerry Brown, has officially declared California a “sanctuary state.” Last week, California also declared it would prosecute any private employer who aided federal immigration officials attempting to remove illegals.
Amidst accusations of voter fraud in California during the 2016 election, Padilla refused to cooperate with a commission investigating illegitimate votes. In 2017 Secretary Padilla responded to the inquiry by saying, “The President’s Commission is a waste of taxpayer money and a distraction from the real threats to the integrity of our elections today: aging voting systems and documented Russian interference in our elections.”
According to the Washington Times, at least one study suggests the 2008 general election may have had as many as 5.7 million non-citizens voting. In 2016, Virginia removed 5,556 votes in just 138 cities and counties for being non-citizens.
Pew data from 2016 suggests 2.75 million people have voter registrations in more than one state, and 1.8 million voters were deceased.
While President Donald Trump was molding his advisory team, Padilla called his appointments “a threat to diverse communities throughout our nation” and “an imminent assault on our collective voting rights and civil rights” for their critical stance against illegal immigration.
Padilla’s own parents immigrated from Mexico to California.
