American voters could lose the ability to hold a free election if voter fraud isn’t reversed—and two top officials in America’s reddest state say the problem is only getting worse.
Tens of thousands of illegal voters are helping turn Texas into a swing state.
Texas officials scoured state databases and flagged 95,000 non-citizens who are registered to vote — and 58,000 of them had already voted in at least one election.
Some of them have been illegally voting since 1996!
“Every single instance of illegal voting threatens democracy in our state and deprives individual Texans of their voice,” said Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton.
The very “integrity and efficiency of elections in Texas” depend on the “accuracy of our state’s voter rolls,” said Texas Secretary of State David Whitley, the state official in charge of voter registration.
President Trump also helped sound the alarm on Twitter, saying that ”these numbers are just the tip of the iceberg. All over the country, especially in California, voter fraud is rampant.”

He said this trend “must be stopped” by passing “strong voter ID” laws.

Texas’ findings could prove Trump right when he said that millions of people from coast to coast voted in the 2016 presidential election.
And that has Democrats blowing a gasket.
Reviewing whether voters are legal citizens threatens “a cornerstone of our democracy,” according to the Democrat who chairs the state’s Mexican American Legislative Caucus, State Rep. Rafael Anchia.
Another Democrat, Celia Israel of Austin, called striking illegal immigrants from the voting rolls a “sham.”
Another activist said prosecuting known illegal voters is racist.
Paxton’s plan wouldn’t even eliminate phony voting registrations immediately… but that hasn’t stopped the meltdown.
Anyone on the list will receive a Notice of Examination from the county voting board. The voter can provide proof of citizenship—like a birth certificate, passport, or a certificate proving they’ve become a naturalized citizen of the United States.

Only people who can’t do that would be taken off the voter rolls. That sounds reasonable, right?
The office even found that thousands of the people on the list had later become legal citizens — and took them off the list on its own! But that hasn’t slowed down the hysteria from Democrats.
Part of the reason is that the Republicans are putting muscle behind their efforts this time.
Ken Paxton has promised to prosecute anyone caught voting illegally. “We will spare no effort in assisting with these troubling cases,” he said.
After all, dirty elections silence U.S. citizens, or speak in his name.
Take the case of Jesse Vargas Jr., a legal citizen who left the state of Texas more than 40 years ago.
But he’s been voting in the Lone Star State for the last 25 years… or so it seemed.
Wolves on the black market had been selling copies of his birth certificate to illegal immigrants for 25 years—and they’ve allegedly been voting in his name, over and over again.
It turns out an illegal immigrant named Enrique Salazar Ortiz bought a copy in a bar for $20.
“He’s been voting”—illegally—“since at least 1994,” said Bexar County elections administrator Jacque Callanen.

The only thing that tipped off the state is when Ortiz applied for a passport, and the State Department put two and two together.
Now he’s going to be deported… but if the liberals have their way, how many more illegals will end up voting in his place?
Maybe the reason Democrats are so worked up is because they know they could end up behind bars!
Last October, the party mailed a voter registration form—with the boxes that say the person is a legal U.S. citizen over the age of 18 already checked!
Thousands upon thousands of illegals could have sent those forms in and registered as Democrat voters.
“Could this be why the Democrat party wants to flood the U.S. with millions of illegals—to tip elections?” asked Adriana Cohen in the Boston Herald.
Not only could they tip elections, they may have already.
