Texas Secretary of State David Whitley revealed in a report Friday that a shocking number of illegal immigrants are registered to vote in The Lone Star State, many of whom actually cast votes in recent elections.

An investigation discovered that about 95,000 people identified by the Texas Department of Public Safety as non-U.S. citizens are registered to vote. Of those, records indicate 58,000 have voted at least once in elections over the past 22 years, KXAN-TV reported.

The shocking revelation was discovered during routine maintenance of the state’s voter rolls, which is mandated by state and federal law to ensure that only qualified citizens are registered to vote. Being a U.S. citizen is the primary qualification for voting.

Whitley’s office reportedly turned over the discovery to Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, who would conceivably prosecute any illegal activity.

“Every single instance of illegal voting threatens democracy in our state and deprives individual Texans of their voice. My Election Fraud Unit stands ready to investigate and prosecute crimes against the democratic process when needed,” Paxton said in a statement, according to KXAS-TV.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said he supports prosecution “where appropriate.”

While the news generated much attention, not everyone bought the statistics. State Rep. Rafael Anchia (D), chairman of the Mexican American Legislative Caucus, said if the allegations are true — which he doubts because “Texas politicians conjure the specter of voter fraud as pretext to suppress legitimate votes” — then blame falls on the shoulders of Abbott, Paxton, and other Republican state leaders.

Between 2005 and 2017, Texas officials prosecuted 97 cases of voter fraud. However, in 2018 alone, Paxton’s office prosecuted 33 individuals for election fraud.

    This is why the democrats took the house illegal voters. I believe the republicans had the house, and through voter fraud the democrats won. Hopefully they will find proof the democrats cheated, and push the democrats out of the house now and forever.

    Now we know how Texas a red state has started to turn purple. Illegal voters. You can bet there were some illegals that had false papers and voted also. And they won’t show up on the rolls as they will be under legal names. I know it happens, I worked the polls here in NM and saw it happen more than once. Wasn’t anything I could do to stop it, as the polls here in town are controlled by the Democrats. It is much like what went on in Florida this past mid term election.

    ”Rafael Anchia (D), chairman of the Mexican American Legislative Caucus, said if the allegations are true — which he doubts because Texas politicians conjure the specter of voter fraud as pretext to suppress legitimate votes” Really? Please explain how calling attention to voter fraud suppresses legitimate votes. Go ahead, enlighten us all.

      I have the same question. If you are a citizen entitled to vote, nobody is saying you can’t. But read carefully, each and every one of those identified in this investigation have identified themselves as non-citizens. There is no witch hunt. The records don’t match and there is a legitimate concern to be investigated. There are too many for this to be some mistake.

    Nothing shocking here. Voter fraud is right in front of everyone’s nose. Anyone with a brain can see that. Thank God there is one state trying to do something about it.

    If that is so in Texas, can you imagine how many “illegal” votes occurred in California?

    The votes should be pulled and a recount done. Also beings they know that they are illegal deport them for trying to infer with an American election.

      Hope Texas wakes up to the Illegal ElectionFraud that went on in last election coming from the Left Democrat Progressive George Soros Groups. Voting by Mail In Ballot in Two States. It might be a small percentage of illegal votes now but since they have seen they got by with it in last election, 2020 will be rampant with election fraud. People claiming residency in 2 states, voting by Mail In Ballot In one state then voting in person in other state. We need a better system to track voter ID.
      The Democrats almost got caught in the last Florida Election using this technique, but not enough laws to catch registered voters in multiple states. This was reflected in all the close races across the country.
      Unless Republicans stop being so gullible and refuse to openly accuse the cheating lying Democrats they will continue to Steal Elections.
