|Illinois||Margarita Del Pilar Fitzpatrick||F||2006-11||General||2008-01||Non-citizen voting||1||Margarita Del Pilar Fitzpatrick, a citizen of Peru, registered to vote in Illinois using the federal “Motor Voter” registration form in August 2005, when she applied for an Illinois driver’s license and signed a voter registration application in which she checked a box indicating she was a United States citizen. Fitzpatrick was caught when she submitted her application for naturalization in 2007 and indicated that she had registered and illegally voted in a U.S. election in November 2006. By law, voting by a non-citizen is a deportable offense, and there is no intent requirement. The Department of Justice Board of Immigration Appeals upheld a decision to deport Margarita Del Pilar Fitzpatrick for voting in a federal election.||Deportation||https://pjmedia.com/blog/non-citizen-deported-for-voting-in-american-elections||http://www.justice.gov/file/3835pdf/download||http://www.ibjonline.com/counterpoint-should-automatic-voter-registration-be-ena...|
