Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said that over one million illegal immigrants cast votes for Democrat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.
During a speech hosted by The Remembrance Project, Fitton said:
"The amnesty problem is not about Hispanic votes, it's about illegal alien votes. President Trump is right, generally, about the outrage of illegal aliens votes here in the United States. ... Aliens vote in large numbers, and in large enough numbers to change elections. By my estimation, we had about one and a half million illegal alien votes in the last election, 1.4 million by my guess."
Of that 1.4 million, he estimated that 80 per cent voted for Clinton.
"1.1 million by that calculation voted for Hillary Clinton….so we really face a crisis in this regard. It’s one thing to lose your country because you have no borders, it’s another thing to lose your country because you have no vote."
Fitton argued that comprehensive immigration reform isn't necessary to fix this issue. Rather, we just need to enforce the laws on the books.
"Judicial Watch believes that the best immigration reform is in front of us. The best immigration reform would be to enforce the law."
Other studies suggest that Fitton's estimate may actually be low:
Data from a Harvard/YouGov study estimates that over 5.5 million illegals voted in 2008 and 3.6 million illegals voted in 2012.
President Trump caused a wave of left-wing outrage after he claimed that millions of votes from illegal immigrants cost him the popular vote. His statement was called a conspiracy theory.
The left doesn't like to talk about the real data about illegal immigrant voting, because they know they are the beneficiaries of it. This is likely why so many Democrats push for lax voter identification laws, and cry "racism" at any conservative who advocates for photo identification at the voting booth.
