With just weeks to go before one of the most significant presidential elections in modern history, a key county in a must-win state for President Trump is allowing non-citizens to register to vote according to a lawsuit.
“Texas’ largest county has been approving voter registrations even when people say they’re not citizens, according to a lawsuit announced Monday that found some of those people managed to cast ballots, too,” according to The Washington Times.
“The Public Interest Legal Foundation says it uncovered dozens of examples of people who registered in Harris County over the last two decades, either admitted they weren’t citizens or left the box blank, yet were registered anyway. They were removed from the rolls after they later stated, again, that they weren’t, in fact, citizens.”
“The Public Interest Legal Foundation says there are others it didn’t catch, including new applicants.”
“‘Individuals claiming to be foreign nationals should not be registered in Harris County,’ said PILF President J. Christian Adams. ‘These failures harm citizens, but they also put those immigrants into serious jeopardy with federal officials.'”
