Voter fraud is a problem. There are numerous stories from various sources about dead people being registered to vote, people being told they can fill out absentee ballots for other people, etc. I was told earlier in the year about buses of union workers brought into North Carolina and given names that they were to register to vote. On election day, people claiming to be those people would vote. It was total fraud. Unfortunately, that is a problem.

Del Cueto had reportedly told Trump that scores of border patrol agents had been advised not to deport criminal illegal immigrants and instead focus on “trying to get the people who are on the waiting list to hurry up and get them their immigration status corrected.”
“Why?” Trump asked, to which Del Cueto responded: “So they can go ahead and vote before the election.”

I have seen enough stories about voter registration fraud from reputable sources that nothing surprises me. Let’s institute voter ID laws and solve the problem.
