Allegation of unions putting illegal immigrants on voter rolls clouds Nevada voting

(Before It's News)

 

Just hours before voters go to the polls in the battleground state of Nevada, a national group has announced it plans to file a complaint regarding illegal immigrants purportedly being allowed to vote.

 

ALIPAC, Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, based in Raleigh, N.C., sent the Nevada secretary of state an email outlining its intention.

 

“We want to stop the felonious thefts of American elections,” says William Gheen, ALIPAC’s president.

 

Gheen points to a commentary published in Sunday’s Las Vegas Review Journal. In it, editorial writer Glenn Cook accuses the Culinary Union 226 of knowingly registering illegal immigrants and then pressured them to vote.

Cook quotes an unidentified illegal immigrant who is on the Clark County voter rolls. The person claims a union representative told them they were “in so much trouble” for refusing to vote.

 

Catherine Lu, a spokesperson for Nevada Secretary of State Ross Miller, said she could not comment on Cook’s editorial or ALIPAC’s official complaint.

 

Gheen says his group wants all non U.S. citizens removed from the voter rolls before Tuesday’s election. He suggested the state could use Homeland Security databases such as E-verify to do the job.

 

The voter in Nevada for president figures to be close. A compilation of the final polls shows President Obama with a 2.8 percent lead among likely voters. But political insiders give Obama a slightly more comfortable edge in large part because of the expected Hispanic vote.

 

In the last two elections, Hispanics made up 15 percent of the electorate and voted overwhelmingly for Democrats.

Gheen says Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, would have been ousted in 2010 if not for illegal immigrants voting. A complaint by loser Sharon Angle did not overturn the results.

 

He also says his group, which has 40,000 members, will organize a boycott of Las Vegas if action is not taken.
