During the last presidential election, illegal aliens voting was a huge controversy. President Trump stated it was a real problem and millions of Americans agreed with him, including me. The biggest reason for throwing the borders wide open in my opinion is so the Democrats can pad their voter base.
Which brings me to Texas this morning. A judge there has just sentenced a Mexican citizen named Laura Janeth Garza, 38, to ten years in prison for illegally voting in the 2016 presidential election. Looks like the cold hand of justice just dropped down on her… hard. She pleaded guilty to voter impersonation and ineligible voting. Both of those crimes in Texas are second-degree felonies.
But, wait… there’s more. Garza has also won a $10,000 fine and she will be deported back to Mexico. Good freaking riddance. I’m just sad she wasn’t caught and convicted earlier.

From The Daily Caller:
“A state investigation revealed that Garza obtained her U.S. citizen documentation by theft. She assumed the identity of someone who had registered to vote in Harris County, Texas. According to investigators, Garza was known as “Angie Yadira Zamora” when she voted in the 2004, 2012 and 2016 elections.
“The deception ended when a real U.S. citizen applied for a passport, only to be told that someone with that name and address had already secured one, Texas Attorney General told the Houston Chronicle.
“Election integrity is a top priority for my office, and arrestees and convictions like this clearly demonstrate our commitment to ensuring that Texas elections remain free and fair,” said Paxton.
“The case will undoubtedly strengthen Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s legislation to enact even stiffer consequences for voter fraud.”
Gee, I seem to remember the left calling Trump supporters conspiracy theorists over voter fraud. Now, I just hear crickets. Trump was right again and now it’s being proven in court. The question is how many illegal aliens got away with voting in the 2016 presidential election?
I still believe that there are all kinds of voter fraud going on across the country and illegal aliens unlawfully voting is only part of it. Voter fraud was a huge problem in Nevada just before I left and I wager it has only gotten worse since then.
Election fraud has increasingly become a hot topic among Republicans in Texas who have called attention to cases like Garza’s to prove their point that there is more voting fraud going on than many acknowledge. Last year, Gov. Greg Abbott signed into law a bill to increase penalties for absentee ballot fraud. Good for him. I really love Gov. Greg Abbott… he has a conservative spine a mile long.
“Anyone attempting to deprive the people of Texas of their voice in either state or federal elections will be brought to justice and penalized by the full extent of the law,” said Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton. Ditto my love for Paxton and well… just Texans in general.
Breitbart Texas reported on this:
“A joint investigation conducted by the Texas AG’s office and the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) determined that Garza obtained documents to steal the identity of a U.S. citizen and illegally register to vote in Harris County, according to a press release from Paxton.
“The two state agencies continue to work together on the case. Information about this matter came to light when a female American citizen attempted to obtain a U.S. passport. However, she learned that Garza had already done so using this woman’s identity. As a result, the U.S. State Department referred Garza’s case to the Criminal Investigations Division of DPS, which, subsequently, handed it over to the Office of the Attorney General for an election fraud investigation.”

After Paxton announced Garza’s voter fraud conviction, the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), a national election integrity law firm, commended the Texas AG for prosecuting this case. “Well done,” the watchdog group tweeted. The PILF also added: “Texas can and should invest more resources into probing and prosecuting fraud.”
The PILF filed a lawsuit earlier this year against Harris County for allegedly failing to disclose noncitizen voter records as required by the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) of 1993, also known as the “Motor Voter” law.
At that time, Paxton urged a state judge in a separate lawsuit to facilitate the PILF’s request after Harris County sued over a ruling that noncitizen records should not be disclosed under the Texas Public Information Act, contrary to the Attorney General’s published opinion on the matter.
Paxton’s office also tried a Mexican national, Rosa Maria Ortega, 38, last year for voting illegally for over a decade in Texas elections. She lied and claimed she was a U.S. citizen and then voted as a Republican at least five times in Dallas County. That included 2012 and 2014. So there is voter fraud on both sides here.
Ortega claimed she thought she was an American citizen despite her legal permanent residency and was therefore ineligible to vote. A judge didn’t buy that and she was sentenced to eight years in prison.
This is yet another reason we need the wall and serious vetting of those who come here. Voting is a sacrosanct right of U.S. citizens and as the most powerful nation on earth, we should be able to get our act together and run clean, legitimate elections. Start by doing background checks and vetting on voting monitors and have others watch them as well.

Trump Just Had All 575 Of Them Arrested After Busting Them In The Act Of Taking Him Out
Thursday, on Capitol Hill in D.C., roughly two thousand women showed up to protest President Trump’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy. That included a number of Democratic politicians. At least one Senator from Seattle, Washington was arrested, processed and released on the scene. She was busted with 575 of her closest comrades who would love to take Trump out. Among them was actress Susan Sarandon as confirmed by her representative Teal Cannaday. “I was moved by the passionate, committed response to ending the separation of families seeking asylum and the incarceration of children,” Sarandon’s statement read. “This is a moral, not political question and I’m proud to have stood with the hundreds of women to say that we do not accept this. Unite families and abolish ICE.” Not so much. It is a Marxist question, not a moral one.
The protest culminated in a sit-in at the Hart Senate Office building, during which many of the protesters wrapped themselves in foil blankets, reminiscent of the silver Mylar blankets migrant children have been seen with in photos taken from detention centers. Three hours after Sarandon’s announcement that she had been arrested, she praised the protest, writing, “Powerful, beautiful action with hundreds of women saying we demand the reunification of families separated by immoral ICE policy. This is what Democracy looks like. #WomenDisobey.” There were chants of “What do we want? Free families!” and “This is what democracy looks like!”
This is the hot, new talking point for the left. They want ICE abolished and the borders wide open. It’s not really about reuniting children with their parents at all. In fact, that has already been done. It’s a faux issue. Thousands of leftist women marched through the capital and then parked themselves in the Senate office building in the atrium. They called it a “mass civil disobedience” act to protest the Trump administration’s immigration policy. The ones that squeezed into the atrium were arrested for blocking access and illegally crowding the space. In my book, they should have been hit with much more serious charges. According to the United States Capitol Police, approximately 575 protesters were charged with “unlawfully demonstrating.” Police said they were all processed on the scene and then released because there were far too many to actually throw in jail.
Arrested. Stay strong. Keep fighting. #WomenDisobey
— Susan Sarandon (@SusanSarandon) June 28, 2018
Susan Sarandon is now 71. She’s reliving her youthful hippy days and as a devout follower of Bernie Sanders, she’s going for commie gold here. She shared the news via Twitter Thursday, saying: “Arrested. Stay strong. Keep fighting” with the hashtag #WomenDisobey. Yeah, breaking the rule of law is always sound advice, not. Sarandon also tweeted out her thoughts on the issue and protest, as well as images from the sit-in, including calls-to-action. “Abolishing ICE & family separations/detention is bigger than either of us. If ur in D.C., please come out & march,” she tweeted. The march was organized by the Women’s March and the Center for Popular Democracy.
Sarandon has been very vocal in her criticism of Trump in the past, but she says that she is optimistic about America’s capacity to create a real change now that people are “awake and scared.” Fear is a such a potent weapon for the left. “I’m actually optimistic because I think we’re seeing an amazing revolution happening,” she explained in 2017. “Not by the people that claim to be political but by Americans, and I have great faith in America. You’re seeing more people running that have never run.” “If you’re acting and you’re paying attention — you have to constantly be calling your representatives,” she added. “And ultimately it could make a difference.” If you’ll remember, Sarandon can’t stand Hillary Clinton, but she loves Bernie Sanders. That tells you all you need to know right there.

A major protest is taking place today in Washington, D.C., with sister rallies across the country. Hundreds of thousands will take part in a fake cause meant to push a Marxist political agenda and Susan Sarandon will be in the thick of it. Sarandon also supported the Women’s March on Washington in January 2017. Earlier this month, she marched to end gun violence in New York as well and in March she joined Cher at the March for Our Lives rally in Washington in support of tighter gun control. She’s fully embracing her inner socialist in her twilight years.
More than 700 events are planned today worldwide against Trump’s “zero-tolerance” approach towards immigration. Thousands of people arrived early today at Lafayette Park outside the White House in preparation for what is expected to be one of the biggest protests the country has seen against President Trump’s immigration policies, with rallies planned across all 50 states. “Throw him out,” protesters chanted as they prepared to march in the nation’s capital. It’s called the “Families Belong Together” protest. As usual, the left is calling Trump Hitler and is calling ICE facilities black sites or concentration camps. They are calling for the total abolishment of ICE during all of this and want Trump removed from office. It’s not going to happen under President Trump, thank goodness.
Heavily Armed Aliens Just Showed Up And Are Caught On Camera – This Is Just The Beginning
Jim Chilton is a fifth-generation rancher in Arizona that finds himself on the front lines of the battle of border security and illegal immigration. He and his wife, Sue live it daily.
The 79-year-old owns and tends a 50,000-acre ranch situated on the U.S.-Mexico border and his property has become a hotspot for illegal aliens crossing into the country. Unlike the heavily fortified border fence in Arizona, the only barriers separating the Chilton ranch from the Mexican border are four strands of rusty barbed wire strung along steel posts.
While tending his cattle, Chilton states he packs no less than two guns and at least 5 gallons of water. The pistol and rifle are to help him ward off the drug smugglers, mules, and human traffickers, or coyotes as they are also known, as they continuously breach the border through his land.
The water is for thirsty border crossers lured by the promise of American jobs and a better life. Chilton states that it used to be that border crossers were simply part of the normal rhythm of everyday life on their ranch. People would come and go freely between the Mexican state of Sonora and Arizona to and from work.
Chilton states: “You’d feed them and give them water and directions.”
The rancher remarked that he has noticed a recent uptick in the number of individuals attempting to use his ranch to enter the country illegally for nefarious means as well. It was not always that way he says.
The early 2000s saw a marked shift as traffic increased significantly in overwhelming numbers, both for the region itself and for its ranchers. Approximately two years ago the migrant traffic slowed to a near halt, and a massive increase in drug smugglers and human traffickers began to flood across the border onto the Chilton ranch.
Now Sue states they are much more guarded about offering any assistance, stating: “At this point, I’m not opening the door except in the rarest of cases.” The danger is simply too great.
As the national debate rages hot over border security and illegal immigration, the Chiltons are living the reality of it. As a result, they have developed a bit more of a nuanced view, attempting to balance their desire for security and protecting America’s borders with the reality of desperate people – men, women, and children alike – wandering across their land starving and parched from the unforgiving desert sun.
Chilton says he does not understand why building a wall to fortify the border is even a question.
The Los Angeles Times reports that Chilton states that:
“Although he respects the Border Patrol agents in the region, he said, he doesn’t understand why they won’t fortify and build a substantial border fence along the Arivaca region, including the five miles of international boundary alongside his ranch.
“It’s inhumane, he said, to allow border crossers to walk in easily through the border, putting their lives at risk from cold nights and hot days. Many are apprehended farther inland anyway.
“The border should be secured at the border,” he said.”
“The couple lament a recently shuttered Border Patrol outpost, the agency’s only significant presence in that area. The outpost, which operated near the ranch, was closed because of budget cuts.
“The couple have even offered to lease 20 acres of their land — about 500 yards from the border — to Border Patrol officials for $1 a year for an outpost. They said the government had not taken them up on the offer.”
The couple states they believe in some sort of guest worker program similar to the federal program previously in place in the 1940s when temporary Mexican laborers were legally allowed to work in the United States. There were no cartels to pay. No human traffickers. No dying in the desert.
At least two neighboring ranchers have chosen to leave rather than continue to fight in the last few years because of just how dangerous the border security situation has gotten. However, the Chiltons state they intend to stay on their land, though it has proven very costly for them to do so.
The cost of maintaining water lines, as well as the international fence to repair it from all the slashing and trampling it undergoes, costs them thousands of dollars in repairs.
Sue states: “We have to maintain the fence or the cattle would all go to Mexico, y no habla español.”
“She gazed out at the trails on the other side of the measly fence, which stretches 15 miles east until it hooks up with an actual border wall in Nogales. She pointed out a network of trails that scar a hill on the Mexican side. It zigzags, leading toward the international fence on the Chilton’s ranch,” reports the LA Times.
“It’s almost as though we have ceded a swath of this United States of America… It has been ceded to operational control of the cartels,” she said.”
