Texas AG arrests noncitizen for felony voter fraud

10th of November 2015

Yes, noncitizens can, and do, register and vote illegally:

“The Texas Attorney General’s Office has arrested Tarrant County resident Rosa Maria Ortega for two counts of illegal voting, a second degree felony… The case presented alleges that Rosa Ortega voted in person during the November 2012 general election and in the May 2014 primary runoff election in Dallas County. She is not a United States Citizen and thus ineligible to vote.”

How Ortega, a legal U.S. resident and citizen of Mexico, was able to illegally register and vote more than once – even after Texas began requiring a government-issued photo ID at the polls – is a question for Dallas County Elections Administrator Toni Pippins-Poole.
