The results give credence to President Trump’s much-maligned claim that Hillary Clinton received more popular votes nationally in 2016 mostly because more than 3 million illegal aliens voted.
In fact, WND reported only weeks ago a new study concluded as many as 5.7 million noncitizens may have voted in the 2008 election, suggesting the problem could be even bigger than what Trump estimated.
In Massachusetts, the U.S. attorney’s office said six people, including four RMV clerks, were arrested in connection “with a scheme to produce false identification documents through the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles.”
“Some of the false identities and addresses were used to fraudulently register to vote in the city of Boston.”
The federal report said the fake paperwork was based on Puerto Rican birth certificates and was used “to fraudulently register the clients to vote in the city of Boston.”
Washington watchdog Judicial Watch pointed out it had reported more than a year ago a rise of faked Puerto Rican birth certificates to obtain authentic U.S. documents.
In the current case, Judicial Watch said “state employees sold drivers’ licenses and state identification cards to illegal immigrants who bought Puerto Rican documents on the black market.”
“The case is the latest of many illustrating that there’s an epidemic of voter fraud in the U.S. that’s seldom reported in the mainstream media,” Judicial Watch said. “It’s not clear how many false identities and addresses were used to fraudulently register to vote in Boston, but the feds indicate that it occurred in multiple cases and Judicial Watch is investigating the matter as part of a five-year-old Election Integrity Project.”
The report continued: “The scheme was operated by four taxpayer-funded employees at the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles along with two outside accomplices who sold Puerto Rican documents to illegal aliens. All six were recently arrested and charged with aggravated identity theft. They probably never would have been caught if not for an anonymous tip received by the Massachusetts State Police nearly two years ago and there’s no telling how long the illicit scheme operated.”
The government “won’t reveal the magnitude of the operation and how many authentic state documents were issued fraudulently to illegal aliens,” Judicial Watch said.
