Once again, the black hand of George Soros is tied to an initiative that helps illegals at the expense of citizens – this time, in Virginia.
What’s going on?
Election officials in the state are apparently helping illegals obtain OKs to vote via fraudulently processed registrations, Breibart reported. And the coverup is being funded by groups tied to Soros, the news outlet found.
Read the shocking story, excerpted from Breitbart:
“Virginia’s election officials are enabling illegal registration and voting by foreign citizens, according to an extensive new study, titled ‘Alien Invasion in Virginia,’ by a former Department of Justice civil rights lawyer.
“‘Virginia election officials don’t seem to care that thousands of [foreign] aliens have corrupted their voter rolls,’ by illegally registering to vote, said J. Christian Adams, the former Department of Justice lawyer, and now the president of the Public Interest Legal Foundation. ‘Even worse than doing nothing about it, they are trying to cover it up,’ he told Breitbart News.”
In eight of Virginia’s 130-plus jurisdictions, 31 non-citizens were found to have cast 186 ballots between 2005 and 2015, according to the report.
And as Adams said, that number is just “a fraction” of the number of aliens who’ve been caught. Extend that out to investigate the whole 130-plus jurisdictions in the state, and doubtless dozens more of illegal voters would be found, he said.
Breitbart went on, explaining the Soros connection:
“State-wide, ‘the problem is most certainly exponentially worse [than seen in the eight localities] because we have no data regarding aliens on the registration rolls for the other 125 Virginia localities,’ the report said. ‘When the voting history of this small sample of alien registrants is examined, nearly 200 verified ballots were cast before they were removed from the rolls. Each one of them is likely a felony.’
“The authors highlighted the role played by Edgardo Cortés, the commissioner of the commonwealth’s department of elections.
“Before his appointment by Democratic Gov. Terence McAuliffe, Cortés was a left-wing operative of Virginia Voting Rights Restoration Campaign, within the left-wing Advancement Project. The project was funded and supported by George Soros, through his Tides Foundation and Open Society Foundations.
“The report makes the direct charge: ‘At the instruction of Commissioner Cortés, local election officials refused to provide us with records showing the voting history of non-citizens removed from registration lists.
“Previous to McAuliffe taking office in 2014, state officials had used the federal Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements database, it is also known as the SAVE database, to detect and remove aliens from the voting rolls, the report said.
“One of the top priorities of the Soros’ Advancement Project is to stop the use of SAVE to purge voter lists.”
Soros, who’s been touting an open-border mindset for years and has embraced the refugees fleeing Iraq and Syria as a means of crumbling the concepts of national identity and sovereignty, has also been funding and fueling groups like the NAACP to help achieve his globalist visions for years.
But as Breitbart reported:
“For years the Left has dismissed suspicions that non-citizens are voting, Adams said. ‘Now, we know why,’ [he added].
“‘When an alien registers to vote, it is a felony,’ Adams said. ‘When an alien votes, it is multiple felonies. DOJ under Obama has stopped enforcing this law.”
