NC Dems Seem Pretty Upset That ICE Might Want To Know If Illegals Are Registered To Vote

On one hand, Democrats say they are Very Concerned about the integrity of our voting system. On the reality hand, they want people who aren’t legally allowed to vote to vote for them

Democratic congressmen call for inquiry over DOJ, ICE voting subpoenas

A pair of North Carolina congressmen called Thursday on the U.S. Department of Justice and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to abandon subpoenas seeking millions of voting records in the state and said they will call for investigations into the “legality and motivations” of the DOJ’s demand.

Democratic 4th District Congressman David Price and 1st District Congressman G.K. Butterfield said the subpoenas sent out late last week by U.S. Attorney Robert Higdon’s office, seem “clearly designed to disenfranchise and intimidate voters and to disrupt the administration of an impending election with major state and national implications.”

They said they’ll ask the inspectors general for the DOJ and the Department of Homeland Security, which houses ICE, to probe the issue. They’ll also seek committee hearings in the U.S. House of Representatives, they said.

A Republican who lost his primary fight and has a rather mixed record on immigration jumped in, too

U.S. Rep. Robert Pittenger put out a statement on the matter as well Thursday, responding to WRAL News questions.

“While I fully support appropriate investigation into voter fraud, ICE must also remember we are just 60 days from the next election,” the 9th District Republican who lost his primary earlier this year said via email. “Proper preparation for the next election is just as vital as investigating potential fraud. ICE should have a very compelling and justifiable reason to subpoena election records at this time, or should wait until after November 6th.”

There are plenty of squishes in the GOP who yammer about getting tough but are more in line with McCain and Graham in giving amnesty for fake security.

    The ends justify the means. It clearly isn’t about ballot integrity, it is about advancing the cause of leftism. No amount of BS is too much, no amount of personal integrity is too low, as long as the cause is advanced.

  2. Jeffery says:

    Just another example of GOP voter intimidation; to make even legal immigrant voters reluctant to go to the polls.

    The GOP is ruthless. Never forget.

      We should be so lucky.

      Legals know they’re legal, moron.

      And the illegals know they’re not.

      Besides, letting illegals vote might even be against the law.

  3. Jl says:

    Legal immigrant voters will have no fear of going to the polls as long as they’re legal immigrant voters. Liberals are again upset that the law must be followed. Never forget

    LOL @ “voter intimidation”. What a joke of an argument. That’s like saying that asking for proof on insurance cards for vehicle operators is “driver intimidation”. That’s like saying that Boeing asking to show IDs to enter their building is “worker intimidation”. I just had to show my ID to check into a hotel, that was “guest intimidation”. Next week when I rent bicycle in Europe they will ask for my passport, and that is “cyclist intimidation”.

    Just another example of leftists losing an argument and diverting the issue because their real issue is advancing socialism.

    Yeah, ALL and Dems and ALL the Never Trump Republirats would just LOVE it if the DOJ waited until the next fraudulent election, aided and abetted by the meddling Mexican illegal invaders was in the books before anything was looked into vis a vis illegal voting.

    • Jeffery says:

      While there is evidence that Donald Trump illegally influenced the election by paying off ‘incovenient’ girlfriends and conspiring with the Russians, there is precious little evidence that undocumented immigrants have voted in significant numbers.

        In 2016, the Obama DOJ/FBI paid Russian intelligence through a British operative to get false information on the opposition party’s presidential candidate, then used the manufactured information to fraudulently obtain a FISA warrant in order to spy on that candidate’s campaign. When this proved unsuccessful and they lost anyway, they then orchestrated a plot to accuse the winning candidate of the very crime they committed. This scandal makes Watergate look like taking a box of paperclips home from work.

        The Obama administration makes Trump look like a choir boy.

        I don’t care if it is even ONE illegal vote but nice to know that you condone illegal behavior as long as not too many people do it.
