Study Shows 5m Illegals Voted, Trump was Right

Throughout the presidential election last year, and later too, Donald Trump warned that there were millions of illegal immigrants casting votes all across the nation.

It cost him the popular vote - and he could have lost the election, the president claimed.

Meanwhile, twice failed presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and her mainstream media cronies said Trump’s warning was “without evidence.”

Well, a bombshell new study just proved Trump was right all along — and it’s been happening for over a decade.

The Washington Times reported on a study from a research group in New Jersey, JustFacts, that found up to 5.7 million illegal immigrants voted in the 2008 election that landed Barack Obama and Joe Biden in the White House.

Fox and Friends reported on the shocking revelation, recently. After examining post-election polling data, the study concluded that previous estimates of illegal voters were way off.

JustFacts President James D. Agresti and his team looked at data from Harvard/YouGov studies that are completed every two years, where they question sample sizes of voters. Their report found that as many as 7.9 million non-citizens were registered to vote in 2008 and between 594,000 and 5.7 million actually cast a vote (almost all for Obama).

Trump has claimed these illegal voters are to blame for Hillary winning the popular vote, and this study gives further weight to that assertion.

Agresti debunks claims by leftist groups that illegals did not vote in these overwhelming numbers, citing the fact that many databases don’t “verify voters who use fraudulent identities, and millions of non-citizens use them.”

Another flaw of leftist studies is they don’t consider illegal immigrants “misidentifying” themselves as legal.

In other words, the mainstream media says that anyone that doesn’t admit they committed voter fraud won’t be counted as someone who committed voter fraud.

“This is irrational,” Agresti explains, “because illegal immigrants often claim they are citizens in order to conceal the fact that they are in the U.S. illegally.”

While this massive voter fraud is devaluing our elections, Trump is taking action to bring an end to it.

In addition to ramping up the efforts of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement, he signed an executive order in May directing Vice President Mike Pence to investigate voter fraud and voter suppression.

“We can’t take for granted the integrity of the vote,” Pence said, further explaining that he will, “review ways to strengthen the integrity of elections in order to protect and preserve the principle of one person, one vote because the integrity of the vote is the foundation of our democracy.”

Not only does this study prove the necessity of the special commission led by Pence, it proves that the mainstream media was lying about Trump’s observations.

Thankfully, the president is sticking to his word and taking action to protect our democracy.
