During a meeting at Trump Towers with Art Del Cueto, vice president of the the union that represents Border Patrol agents, Trump said, “They are letting people pour into this country so they can go and vote.”
According to both Holly Bailey and Reid Epstein, Trump was responding to Del Cueto’s assertion that border agents were told not to deport illegal immigrants with criminal records “so they can vote.”
While liberals like myself push for easy access to voting in America, Conservatives play the “voter fraud” game when it comes to that issue, even though there is virtually zero percent of actual voter fraud in the U.S.
Florida governor Rick Scott, a Trump supporter, just made the case for me by refusing to extend voter registrations in light of the Hurricane.
He said, ““I’m not going to extend it. Everybody’s had a lot of time to register. On top of that, we have lots of opportunities to vote, early voting and absentee voting, so I don’t intend to make any changes.”
Trump and Del Cueto should explain to us all how the names of “illegal immigrants” are put on the voting rolls to start with?
And how do they find the correct polling place?
And how do… Oh, never mind.
This is childish nonsense, again from a man who already has said the election will be rigged. He’s engaging in truly dangerous, anti-democracy rhetoric by questioning the legitimacy of our election outcome even before the final vote.
