Yesterday, Ken Paxton, the attorney general of Texas, discovered that 95,000 people who are not United States citizens are registered to vote in the state. Moreover, roughly 58,000 of those non-U.S. citizens have voted in elections, according to Townhall.
A Closer Look at Registered Non-U.S. Citizens in Texas
In light of the aforementioned events, Paxton issued the following public statement:
“Every single instance of illegal voting threatens democracy in our state and deprives individual Texans of their voice. My Election Fraud Unit stands ready to investigate and prosecute crimes against the Democratic provess when needed.”
Citizens who are not members of the United States are able to get driver’s licenses and other types of identification in Texas. However, voting in an election where one is ineligible is a second-degree felony in Texas. Paxton furthermore maintains that his office will continue doing everything in their power to maintain the sanctity of their elections.

The issue of registered non-U.S. citizens is a living testament to the fact that America needs to secure our borders and crack down on illegal immigration. We cannot have non-U.S. citizens voting in U.S. elections. This is not about hatred or bigotry, but rather about upholding the law of the land.
