NEW: Georgia Democrats Introduce Bill That Could Allow Illegals and Other Non-Citizens to Vote

Democrats in the state look to expand their voter base.

After gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams’ bitter loss to Republican Gov. Brian Kemp in Georgia, six Democrats in the state legislature are sponsoring a bill that would allow non-citizens to vote.

“Each elector shall present proper identification to a poll worker at or prior to completion of a voter’s certificate at any polling place and prior to such person’s admission to the enclosed space at such polling place,” the bill says.

The bill then lists proper forms of identification. Most of them are fairly standard, including drivers licenses, valid U.S. passports, and military ID’s. But two of the valid forms of identification are troublesome, and could allow illegal aliens and other non-citizens to vote.

“A valid employee identification card containing a photograph of the elector and issued by any branch, department, agency, or entity of the United States government, this state, or any county, municipality, board, authority, or other entity of this state,” is the fourth form of acceptable identification.

Georgia has the seventh-highest illegal alien population in America, with an estimated 400,000 illegal residents. An untold number of these people work for the federal or state government.

Likewise, student ID’s from Georgia universities would be considered a valid form of identification under the bill.

“A valid student identification card containing a photograph of the elector issued by a public or private college or university in this state” is the final form of valid identification listed in the bill.

Georgia State University and Augusta University – both public colleges – allow illegals to enroll. Other state universities in Georgia bar illegals from enrollment, a rule which Democrats are working to reverse. Private colleges can enroll whomever they want.

Not only could illegals possibly possess student ID’s, but so could international or exchange students, adding to the pool of potential non-citizens that this bill could enable to vote.

BLP reached out to State Representatives Roger Bruce and Donna McLeod, both of whom co-sponsored the bill, to address these questions. Neither immediately returned a comment request.

Joe Biden Surges in South Carolina, Florida, Throwing Wrench into Sanders’ Easy Victory

Biden might actually consolidate the ‘moderate’ lane after all.

Published

on

Joe Biden appears to be surging in the forthcoming Democratic primary state of South Carolina, throwing a wrench into what some have called an easy path to victory for frontrunner Bernie Sanders.

Biden has looked to South Carolina as a redoubt for his campaign after struggling mightily in the first three primary and caucus states. After Sanders’ resounding Nevada victory, he appeared set to challenge the former Vice President in the first southern state to vote, but the latest rounds of polling reveal that Biden has the state on lock.

A Monmouth University poll released Thursday showed Biden with a blowout lead of twenty percentage points in the Palmetto state. Biden has made appeal to African American voters a crucial element of his primary strategy, and the South Carolina polling suggests he’s retained strong support from black voters, even after his early campaign mishaps. African American voters form a majority of the state’s Democratic primary electorate.

Sanders languishes in a distant second in the poll, trailing Biden by a margin of 36% to 16%. Other polling recently conducted shows Biden with a smaller lead, but Sanders is yet to take the lead in a South Carolina poll with two days before the election.

New polling also shows the former Vice President retaking the lead in the Super Tuesday state of Florida, leading second-place Michael Bloomberg by a strong margin of nine percent. Sanders is all the way in third place in the Florida St. Pete poll, and such a finish in one of the first big states to vote after Super Tuesday would likely ensure that the Democratic Primary remains wide open.

Biden’s polling suggests that the career politician might actually have a chance to consolidate support from self-identifying ‘moderate’ Democrats, after competitors like Pete Buttigieg and Michael Bloomberg appeared set to eat his lunch.
