A group fighting against illegal immigration has filed a series of formal complaints with federal, state, and local agencies following a report by the Las Vegas Journal Review that uncovered a number of cases of illegal immigrants voting in this election.
Americans for Legal Immigration Political Action Committee (ALIPAC) filed a formal complaint with the Federal Election Committee (FEC), the Nevada Secretary of State’s Office, and the Clark County Board of Elections. In their complaint, ALIPAC charges that numerous illegal immigrants and non-citizens are registering and voting in federal elections that will decide which presidential candidate or political party controls the White House and US Senate.
The complaint follows a story written by Glenn Cook of the Las Vegas Journal Review (LVJR). In that story, Cook interviewed two illegal immigrants who said to him that they were voting illegally.
“Last week, I met with two immigrant noncitizens who are not eligible to vote, but who nonetheless are active registered voters for Tuesday’s election. They said they were signed up by Culinary Local 226.
“They speak and understand enough English to get by. But they don’t read English especially well. They say the Culinary official who registered them to vote didn’t tell them what they were signing and didn’t ask whether they were citizens. The immigrants said they trusted that the union official’s request was routine, thought nothing of it and went about their work,” read the pertinent part of the story.
William Gheen, President of AlIPAC, said that the LVJR investigation is evidence that voting by illegal immigrants isn’t merely a conspiracy but a real problem.
“Illegal alien voters are not a conspiracy theory,” said Gheen. He continued, “The information we have shows mass illegal immigrant voting in Clark County.” Clark County includes the City of Las Vegas.
Gheen also pointed out that Las Vegas wasn’t the only place where the media highlighted incidents of illegal immigrants voting. A Fox 25 in Boston investigation also found a number of illegal aliens on the voter rolls.
“But FOX Undercover found out something else about Santiago-Vazquez. He’s been registered to vote from his home address in Lawrence since 2010.
“Our investigation shows he’s not the only registered voter in Lawrence who is not a citizen. By cross-checking Lawrence voter records with criminal records that included records indicating lack of citizenship, we found three others.”
Gheen said that he believes that tens of thousands of illegal aliens are voting in Nevada and he even stated that at least one high-profile election was swayed by illegal immigrants. Gheen said that he believes that Harry Reid beat Sharron Angle because thousands of illegal aliens voted for Harry Reid in 2010.
“He [Reid in 2010] lost every County but Clark County,” said Gheen of why he believes that Reid was helped by illegal aliens.
In that race, Angle filed a complaint citing voter intimidation by management at Harrah’s Casino. Gheen said that a number of illegal immigrants work at that Harrah’s.
Gheen also said that an ALIPAC supporter from Nevada who worked as a poll worker in this cycle was dismissed from that job after complaining about illegal immigrants voting.
Gheen said that the issue of illegal immigrants voting is an issue all Americans should be concerned about because it robs citizens of their own vote.
“Every illegal immigrant is skewing a legal vote.”
