"-- In 1997, the FBI and the U.S. Attorney's office in Dallas were investigating voting by non-citizens. They sent a computerized tape of the names of individuals who had voted to the INS requesting a check against INS records, but the INS refused to cooperate with the criminal investigation. An INS official was quoted as saying that the INS bureaucracy did not "want to open a Pandora's Box…. If word got out that this is a substantial problem, it could tie up all sorts of manpower. There might be a few thou sand [illegal voters] in Dallas, for example, but there could be tens of thousands in places like New York, Chicago or Miami.""
"-Similarly, a 1996 congressional race in California may have been stolen by non-citizen voting. Republican incumbent Bob Dornan was defending himself against a spirited challenger, Democrat Lor etta Sanchez. Sanchez won the election by just 979 votes, and Dornan contested the election in the U.S. House of Representatives. His challenge was dismissed after an investigation by the House Com mittee on Oversight and Government Reform turned up only 624 invalid votes by non-citizens who were present in the U.S. Immigration and Nat uralization Service (INS) database because they had applied for citizenship, as well as another 124 improper absentee ballots. The investigation, however, could not detect illegal aliens, who were not in the INS records."

Well if that's true how do you suppose they are voting? I would assume that someone with hardly any money and scarcely any job wouldn't be voting republican. They would be living in the south or south western US and could possibly migrant workers. Yet we see a high percentage of republicans voted into office in those areas, so what does this tell us? either voting doesn't work or this isn't happening.
just my humble opinion(jmho)

OK so if they are voting how does this impact us and if it doesn;t what does it matter? Maybe we aren't monitoring people who vote well enough and if this doesn't impact an election enough again what does it matter. I think as I believe the US government believes the illegal aliens bring alot of money into the government through income taxes and do not receive any benefits so this becomes a surplus. I also believe they do jobs that people do not want, regardless if they are unemployed or not, either they are too menial or do not pay enough. If as in previous posts stated that they do not impact enough I don't understand what this thread is all about other than to bash immigrants. I would like to remind all that htis country is based upon them and I for one respect and am proud of them and the work coulture they bring into our country.
Heaven forbid any one of you have to go through what they do to try and be free. I love life, I love all and god bless everyone.
