In February 2016, the California governor and legislature did something rather outlandish. They made a law (2015 Motor Voter Law) that allows all California illegals to apply for a driver’s license. This law combined with 2013 Assembly Bill 60 (automatic voter registration when getting a driver’s license) effectively results in allowing illegals to vote, because having a license now automatically registers “eligible” voters to vote in California.
Well, perhaps. Therein lies the rub.
California created a set of laws that effectively allow illegals to vote (Oregon and others, too, but let’s stick with California). We can quibble over how DMV workers will handle whether to voter-register a license of an illegal or how mail-in registration would be handled, since cross-referencing illegals databases is discouraged. Bottom line, though, is that the loophole is now there and may cost Clinton the election. Even one illegal vote (let alone 30 million) is enough to disqualify a state’s vote…perhaps.
There are those who throw up the 15th Amendment to prove that California’s laws are unconstitutional. Put another way, a more straightforward approach is common sense. Not a citizen = no vote (unless you’d like 7 billion taxpayer dollar-hungry voters involved in the U.S. election).
Why is this important? California is a reliably blue state, but what would happen if each and every Californian vote (including its 55 Electoral College votes) were declared null and void by the courts (Trump would be the obvious plaintiff)? After all, post facto, there’s no way to untangle citizen from illegal non-citizen voting.
What are the ramifications? If – and it’s still a big if – all California votes were declared null and void by a court, that leaves 489 Electoral College votes (i.e., half or revised 245 votes to win the U.S. presidency). Using the current flawed polls within the incomplete RCP 2-way average poll weighting, Hillary Clinton is currently holding an “insurmountable” yet diminishing lead in projected electoral votes: 229 (with no toss-up states). That is not enough to clinch the deal in a non-California world. Her current “229” Electoral College votes based on dubious sources would then be 174. Whoops. That scenario might even place her in second place behind Trump (who himself may or may not have votes to reach 245).
For the sake of argument, then, to the Republican House of Representatives we go. How are Representatives in the House – even those who dislike Trump – going to vote for president? Clinton, the second-place finisher, or Trump, the first-place finisher? It would be the ultimate ratings boost for CSPAN. My betting would go for Trump.
The only question remaining is, will Trump, trailing by a little bit in electoral votes, himself sue to remove reliably blue Californian Electoral College votes post-election? Question asked and answered. California has done a potentially material disservice to Hillary.
Wouldn’t it be some form of Karmic justice for Donald Trump to win the presidency after the courts throw out California’s electoral votes – those assumed to go to Hillary? Would Trump sue if he thought that it would win him the White House?
In a New York second.
Governor Moonbeam and the Democratic-controlled state legislature have made it possible by authorizing ILLEGALS to be granted a driver’s license. Those “undocumented” aliens are in the United States illegally. What is there about that is so difficult to understand? This may turn out to be just one more “feature” of Obama’s anti-Constitutional circumvention of immigration laws.
Personally, I take great affront at the idea that someone who was captured entering the country illegally and released (as some 80% are according to the Border Patrol) is issued a California driver’s license and, at the same time, automatically registered to vote. I don’t have a problem with some form of automatic voter registration, there shouldn’t be any impediments to voter registration and we should be encouraging all CITIZENS to vote. That being said, we must still be sure of a person’s citizenship when registering them to vote. Non-citizens must NOT be allowed to vote in our elections – period.
As a senior citizen of these United States, a longtime taxpayer and a veteran, my exhaustively researched and carefully considered vote can be cancelled out by an illegal alien who may not even speak English or know refried beans about the candidates. Please tell me where the logic or fairness can be found in that?
