12/30/12, "How Chicago and Obama Globalized Voter Fraud," American Thinker, Michael Bargo, Jr.
"Since 1985 Chicago has pioneered new ways to promote illegal immigration.
After 1990 the illegal immigrant population in Chicago and the nation
skyrocketed. As illegal immigrants flocked to Chicago, a method was
needed to get them on the registered voter list. Although 80,000 illegal aliens voted in 1982, the old-fashioned way, through vote fraud; by 2005 both Cook County and the state of Illinois had moved to allow photo I.D. to be given to illegal immigrants by passing matricula consular laws.
By allowing the matricula consular
to function as an official photo I.D., Illinois and Chicago can say
they are conforming to any Voter ID requirement. But the Cook County law
(most Illinois illegal immigrants live in Cook County) also allows the
consulates of Mexico and "any other Latin American country" to issue the
consular I.D.s at their discretion. In effect, Illinois has enabled
foreign countries to decide who votes in U.S. elections.
In 1983 an alien born in Belize stated to the Chicago Tribune that he and his two sisters were never required to show any identification when they registered to vote. The matricula consular
enables people to reside in Illinois, and once they reside there, they
need no ID to register to vote. This "globalization" of voting rights is
clearly a violation of the U.S. Constitution, yet has never been
challenged in any court during its ten year history.
This supports the idea that Chicago's goal is to attract large numbers of undocumented residents from all countries."...via Free Republic
