No matter how simple and true the point is about the importance of voter I.D. liberals in America have an obsession with demonising anyone who tries to promote voter I.D. policies.
And make no mistake: this is an almost exclusively American problem. As John Fund explains at The National Review, virtually all other modern nations, and a vast majority of everyday Americans, are in favour of voter I.D. regulations.
Polls have shown that voter-ID laws and similar measures enjoy great popular support all over the world. In the U.S., … support crossed all demographic lines — 66 percent of independents, 60 percent of Democrats, 65 percent of African-Americans, and 64 percent of Hispanics. … “I think that party leaders have tried to make this a Republican versus Democrat issue,” former Democratic state representative Jon Brien, who shepherded Rhode Island’s 2011 voter-ID law through a Democratic legislature, told the Pew Center’s Stateline news service. “It’s not. It’s simply a good-government issue.”
Think about it: a meddling woman like Jill Stein is suing for recounts in three states that Trump won just so we can confirm the “integrity” of our voting system; yet she vehemently rejects voter I.D. requirements as racist, elitist, classist, etc. It makes no sense, which is why liberals politicians have to keep it out of the public eye.
Alan Schulkin, Commissioner of Board of Elections in New York and lifelong Democrat, finally got disgusted by the rampant voter fraud he witnessed under Mayor Bill de Blasio. He resigned from the Board of Elections after this footage was posted online.
Eventually, though, the truth will out, and now De Blasio is feeling the heat for his hypocritical and massively illegal I.D. policies in New York City.
According to VDare.com, “since 2007, various States and municipalities have been issuing identification cards and driver’s licenses to illegal aliens. New York City has been doing so since 2015.”
I think the only reason NYC was so late to the game on this is because it’s usually under greater scrutiny. That, or they already had successful traditions of ‘managing’ illegal aliens (i.e., exploiting them for votes) which didn’t require I.D. After all, isn’t requiring I.D. “racist”?!
At some point, though, I.D. documents seemed like a good idea to issue “to aid and abet illegal aliens to remain in the United States,” VDare writes. The problem is that issuing I.D. to harbour illegal aliens “is a violation of Title 8 of the United States Code, Section 1324.” As a result, New York City and the elected officials, officers, and employees who administer that program–including Mayor De Blasio!–are “individually criminally liable for each and every ID card issued to an illegal alien.”
Now that their bet on Hillary’s victory has gone up in smoke, these crafty New Yorkers are trying to send the I.D.’s up in smoke, too. But this is just to open another can of worms.
As the VDare writer explains, “New York City does not have a policy of quickly destroying records in any other agency or department”. So they’re not even allowed to do this according to their own state laws.
