Illegal Immigrant Voters

Trump alleged a lot of non-citizens voted in the 2016 election; most pundits pooh-poohed that claim, especially Democrats who benefitted therefrom. A new study suggests he may have been more right than they.

The Washington Times reports as follows:
A research group in New Jersey has taken a fresh look at postelection polling data and concluded that the number of noncitizens voting illegally in U.S. elections is likely far greater than previous estimates. As many as 5.7 million noncitizens may have voted in the 2008 election, which put Barack Obama in the White House.

For 2012, Just Facts said, 3.2 million to 5.6 million noncitizens were registered to vote and 1.2 million to 3.6 million of them voted.

There is hard evidence outside of polling that noncitizens do vote. Conservative activists have conducted limited investigations in Maryland and Virginia that found thousands of aliens were registered.
This nefarious practice needs to end, soonest. Noncitizen registration itself has to be a crime, not to mention voting.
