While there may be some question of how many, a former U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent put to rest any debate over whether illegal immigrants vote in U.S. elections.
Appearing on Fox News’ “The O’Reilly Factor,” retired ICE Special-Agent-In-Charge Claude Arnold spoke of how easy it is for illegal immigrants to get forged documents in America — the popular option being a “three-pack,” which includes a counterfeit work authorization card, drivers license and Social Security card.
The going rate for a three-pack ranges from $120-$300 and can be acquired the same day as purchased, Arnold explained.
Illegal immigrants can then register to vote and many do, he added.
“I’ve worked in six locations across the United States. I’ve probably arrested more than a thousand illegal aliens in my career and I routinely encounter people in possession of voter registration cards.”
Arnold went on to say he would ask them during his interrogation if they have voted and was often told yes.
“That’s not just anecdotal, I’ve probably… closer to a hundred people I’ve encountered,” he added as host Bill O’Reilly began talking over him.
That works out to about ten percent and doing the math, with an estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in the U.S., that equates to 1.2 million potentially illegal votes.
It should be noted that True the Vote, the nation’s leading election integrity organization, agrees with President-Elect Trump’s claims that illegal votes played a significant role in the popular vote.
Perhaps they are on to something.
