As many as 100,000 non-US citizens were eligible to vote in the recent Pennsylvania 18th Congressional District race—won narrowly by Democrat Conor Lamb—and it would have taken only a tiny fraction of that number to vote to have swung the election, a private think tank has claimed.
According to a study carried out by USinc, founded by Center for Immigration Studies founder John H. Tanton—although the outcome of the race might still be open, “one thing we can reasonably surmise is that there were illegal votes cast in that election, and enough to determine the outcome.”
According to USinc, the district includes parts of Greene, Washington, Westmoreland, and Allegheny Counties.
The Center for Immigration Studies’ map of sanctuary cities, counties, and states lists Westmoreland County as a sanctuary county, “which almost guarantees that illegal aliens have been registered to vote,” the report continued,
“J. Christian Adams, President of the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), presented research and information on illegal voting by noncitizens at the September, 2017 Social Contract Writers’ Workshop in Washington, D.C., and recently filed a lawsuit against the state of Pennsylvania that notes:
“A Philadelphia official added before the Assembly that early figures of noncitizen PennDOT customers and registered voters revealed more than 100,000 current matches.
“That’s 100,000 noncitizens registered to vote in Pennsylvania that their Department of Transportation knows about.”
The PILF lawsuit has exhibits that show noncitizens were registered to vote. One of the exhibits shows that Monroeville resident Devanathan Sundaramu Mudaliar’s voter registration was cancelled because of noncitizen status.
Monroeville is a suburb of Pittsburgh in Allegheny County that had a 15,000 vote disparity between the two candidates, the USinc report continued.
“And we know that Pittsburgh’s Mayor William Paduto has said, “Immigrants and refugees are welcome here, and we will do everything within our power to protect them and all our residents.”
All of this is “code for welcoming and not enforcing the law against illegal aliens. Of course, it is reasonable to expect that this attitude has bled over into the suburbs of Pittsburgh that are in the 18th Congressional District,” the USinc report continued.
USinc was careful to point out that it had no conclusive evidence that the non-citizens had affected the election, but, it concluded:
“Political parties and candidates aside, does the fact that at least 100,000 noncitizens are registered to vote in Pennsylvania warrant a serious, in-depth investigation that leads to purging the voter rolls of illegal voters? Only if you want a fair and legal election, regardless of the candidate or political party that you support.”
The Pennsylvania’s Republican Party has also asked the Pennsylvania secretary of state to look into “a number of irregularities” it says occurred during voting in the House race between Republican Rick Saccone and Lamb.
In a letter, Pennsylvania GOP general counsel Joel Frank said there had been complaints of voting machines not being calibrated, voters not appearing on voter rolls, questions over website information on polling places, and notice of overseas and military voting.
A letter addressed to the US Department of Justice from Frank also requests the appointment of federal observers “to monitor” the May 15 primary “for practices that may infringe on the ability of all duly qualified Pennsylvania voters to cast their votes in accordance with the voting protections afforded under federal laws.”
