MURDOCK: No Need for Amnesty When HR1 Makes Illegal Voting Undetectable

'If Alejandro Gomez from Guatemala tells poll workers that he is Alexander Gordon from Galveston, who are they to judge?'

(Deroy Murdock, Headline USA) As Americans watch our southern frontier melt away, millions of citizens wonder if this is a gargantuan goof by Joe Biden or intentional public policy.

Biden’s border bedlam is not a bug. It’s a feature of this faux moderate’s far-Left agenda. Those whom conservatives call illegal aliens, Biden considers Future Democrats of America. Why fight for old voters when you can let 351,803 potential new ones invade the USA, just this first quarter?

This might seem a long-term prospect: These people are here to stay. Pre-Biden, federal officials handed illegals documents with distant dates when—wink, wink—they would plead for asylum before federal judges.

“See you then”—nudge, nudge—replied the Great Uninvited.

Now, Biden simply waves illegals through. Thousands enter America without these flimsy court summons, which some 87% reportedly have ignored anyway. So, as few expect even glancing scrutiny, often two years hence, these illegal aliens will make themselves at home.

Adults might need 10 or 12 years before enjoying amnesty, perhaps under President Stacy Abrams in 2034. After today’s unaccompanied minors turn 18, they could benefit from similar relief.

But these unbeckoned foreigners could vote here much sooner. If H.R. 1 passes, it could turn millions of foreign lawbreakers into voters as soon as 2022’s mid-term elections!

• Automatic registration: This reform would require states and cities to register people to vote when they apply for government benefits and services—whether or not citizens, foreign or domestic, so desire. Cautionary tale: Green Card holders visited Nevada’s DMV last year. Shocked, they soon found themselves on voter rolls.

• Same-day registration: Illegal aliens could reach the polls on Election Day, sign up to vote and cast ballots immediately. H.R. 1 offers no means to distinguish Americans from foreigners. Thus, secret ballots—as illegal as these aliens themselves—could not be isolated and uncounted. Each such bogus ballot would nullify a sacred American vote. Same-day registration also would let illegals, and U.S. citizens, target multiple polling places and vote, vote, vote.

• No voter ID: H.R. 1’s prohibition on voter identification makes it impossible to confirm that people are who they say they are. If Alejandro Gomez from Guatemala tells poll workers that he is Alexander Gordon from Galveston, who are they to judge? So, give Gomez/Gordon his ballot and get on with it!

• Drop boxes: H.R. 1 would proliferate unsupervised drop boxes, never mind that COVID-19 is receding and, with it, Democrats’ excuse for this “emergency” measure last fall. With few, if any, watchful eyes on them, especially overnight, these receptacles are perfect vectors for infecting clean elections with dirty ballots.

• Ballot harvesting: H.R. 1 broadens the dangerous practice of letting activists, parties, and campaigns gather and submit fistfuls or even bulging sacks of ballots. Per H.R. 1, ballot harvesters could accumulate mass-absentee ballots blasted across cities and states. Orphan ballots—tied to deceased or relocated voters—would collect dust. Crooked harvesters could reap these unclaimed ballots, let illegals complete them, and then dump them at registrars of voters or into drop boxes.

• Non-precinct polling centers: H.R. 1 would propagate huge, centralized polling centers, rather than local precincts, where Americans have voted fairly and faithfully for centuries. Vigilant poll workers at a neighborhood precinct might question an illegal alien who seemed uncharacteristic of that community. If Conchita Jimenez claimed to be Connie Jackson from Elm Street, Connie’s old friend might be a poll worker and recall that Jackson passed away weeks earlier. Jimenez could be stopped from casting a phony ballot. But if Jimenez visited a consolidated polling center, with voters and election volunteers from across town, her shenanigans likely would go undetected.

Joe Biden’s border catastrophe poses a clear and present danger to U.S. election integrity. H.R. 1 would weaponize his southern-frontier fiasco and fire it directly into America’s already wobbly voting system. The U.S.–Mexico border should be secured as urgently as the Senate should deport H.R. 1.
