19 People Arrested For Voting Illegally in 2016 Election


From the Washington Times:

Those charged include four Mexicans, two from Haiti, two from the Dominican Republic and one each from Italy, Grenada, Korea, Guyana, Germany, Poland, Japan, El Salvador, Panama, Nigeria and the Philippines.

In the case of the Dominican man, he was ordered deported from the U.S. in the 1980s, but obtained a false identity and continued to live here, winning citizenship in the 1990s under his bogus persona, the government charged. He then registered to vote and cast ballots under the false ID.

One of the Mexicans, meanwhile, was in the U.S. legally, having been granted a green card in 2009. In 2012 she registered to vote, claiming she was actually a citizen, the indictment says.

She later would apply for citizenship and lied on her forms, saying she had never claimed citizenship.

According to the DOJ, these are the people who were charged.

Jose Cruz Solano-Rodriguez, age 41, of Mexico
Guadalupe Espinosa-Pena, age 63, of Mexico
Sarah Emilia Silverio-Polanco, age 35, of the Dominican Republic
