Barack Obama is at it again. Now he wants automatic voter registration with driver’s license registration. That of course means any state that gives drivers’ licenses to illegal immigrants could accidentally register them all to vote.
Pres also urges lawmakers to make it easier for constituents to get out and vote. Suggests automatic registration with drivers license.

It’s already happening in California.
They don’t separate the licenses given to illegal immigrants from Americans in the database.
In October 2015, Governor Jerry Brown signed a new version of the Motor Voter Act that will register every eligible California citizen who acquires a driver’s license or renews a license at the Department of Motor Vehicles to vote.
This was after he made all illegal aliens eligible for diver’s licenses. Eleven states and the District of Columbia enacted laws to allow illegal immigrants to obtain a driver’s licenses. These state are California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, Vermont and Washington. Illinois and New Jersey legislators are pushing for it.
In California, state officials “specifically chose not to make noncitizen license holders searchable in their DMV database,” said True the Vote spokesman Logan Churchwell, who called the bill “unprecedented.”
The measure, Assembly Bill 1461, “will effectively change the form of governance in California from a Republic whose elected officials are determined by United States citizens and will guarantee that noncitizens will participate in all California elections going forward,” Election Integrity Project of California President Linda Paine said in a statement.
Catherine Engelbrecht has been exploring the issue state by state and has found that there are two issues.
One is the physical appearance of the driver’s license issued to illegals that affects the ability of the poll worker to determine an illegal voter.
The second, and the more serious, is the data underlying the issuance of the ID.
In many of the larger states, California being one, there is no distinction between the databases of citizens and non-citizens. There is nothing to prevent the illegal aliens from voting. There is no way to tell a citizen from a non-citizen. “In other words, the flood gates are open,” Engelbrecht says.
Ms. Engelbrecht points out that once it is no longer necessary to prove citizenship in order to vote, elections become little more than body counts at the polls, with no need to compete on the battlefield of ideas necessary to win, you’re “just dragging people across the finish line.”
This is what Obama wants for every state before November.
