Non Citizen In Texas Faces Up To 20 Years In Prison For Voting Multiple Times
Rosa Maria Ortega, 35, is presently a resident of the Tarrant County Jail, where she is being held on a $10,000 bond, according to the Dallas-Fort Worth NBC affiliate Channel 5 News, which reported: Ortega is married to an American and is living legally in this country, but is not a citizen and therefore, not qualified to vote
Although Ortega never voted in Tarrant country, records indicate that she did so five times in neighboring Dallas county — the earliest in a 2004 Republican primary, the latest in the 2014 Republican primary. Her charges — illegal voting — is a second degree felony, punishable by a two to 20 year prison sentence. A running battle between Republicans and Democrats is centered on voter ID laws. More than 30 states currently have some form of voter ID requirement. Republicans claim that such laws are necessary as a protection against voter fraud.
On an individual basis, why is this happening? Is it a person’s way of doing what, they feel is helping their own party of choice? Or is it a bigger scheme, such as the paid players in BLM rioting? i’m just not sure, but the maximum is necessary to stop others from tainting our process. What do you think?
