There are millions of green card holders in the United States, and sources inside the Department of Homeland Security say a new program is urging them to become citizens in time to vote in the 2016 election.
Of the 20 states with the highest green card population, 14 are holding Senate races in 2016, so millions of new voters could dramatically impact the election.
J. Christian Adams said on “Fox and Friends Weekend” that this is a case of Democrats using the levers of power to preserve power.
“What they’re doing is doing a full-court press on getting these aliens—9,000,000 of them—registered as citizens in time for the 2016 election,” Adams said. “They’re redirecting resources of DHS to this effort, this campaign.”
Adams noted that an internal memo from Leon Rodriguez, the director and co-chair of the DHS’ “Task Force on New Americans,” said, “This report outlines an immigrant integration plan that will advance our nation’s global competitiveness and ensure that the people who live in this country can fully participate in their communities.”
“They say it nakedly in this letter that this is all about politics,” Adams stated.
Tucker Carlson pointed out that Republicans are constantly reminded that if they speak out against this, they will be branded as xenophobic bigots and will never get another Hispanic vote.
“It’s a deliberate strategy to shut up opposition,” Adams asserted. “This is a transformative campaign going on to fundamentally transform the country. And if you don’t talk about it, if you don’t confront it, you’re going to lose all the other issues you care about.”
