Texas which has some of the tougher voter ID laws has found 95,000 non-citizens on the voter rolls of which 58,000 have voted. If Texas has that many, than I would bet states with less strict laws have a lot more. I would suggest this is a problem that should be dealt with by all states.
This report is being shredded across Texas as being far too shallow in its reporting and currently has no value with much, MUCH more in-depth investigation. The Secretary of State also has no ability to take action. Only county officials have such.
Numerous reports even included in this mornings local news are showing how invalid this report is. This report is pulling information from people with a drivers license. Texas has over 50,000 people ever year become naturalized citizens. That is over 50,000, per year! The records pulled for this report was from all ( decades) open records. There is zero correlation between obtaining a drivers license and becoming a naturalized citizen.
Needless to say, there needs to be much more investigation, plus county officials don’t use a drivers license as proof of citizenship. It is only one of the ways to identify you are the person on the official county roll before voting.
P.S. it was also reported today that the so called 58,000 were not all in the last election. This was a number from all current data which includes numerous election data going back to the 1990’s. Trash in, trash out at this point.
