Former President Trump often claims that big waves of immigrants who aren't U.S. citizens are voting in our elections -- and influencing outcomes -- with Democrats' blessing. They're not.

...Why it matters: There's no evidence such voting has ever happened on any significant scale. But the conspiracy theories live on, fueled by Trump, Elon Musk and others who keep injecting hard-to-imagine scenarios into the debate over border security.

- - - "They are allowing these people to come in ... they are signing them up to vote," Trump told a crowd at a campaign stop in Iowa in January.

- - - "That's why you are having millions of people pour into our country, and it could very well affect the next election."

Reality check: Non-citizen immigrants are barred by law from voting in federal elections.

The very few who try it typically do so by accident, and are caught.

The penalties can be severe, and include prison time or deportation. ...

It is republicans that keep getting caught voting illegally. Trying to make a point or not, they keep proving the system catches up with them.

The US right wing and left wing are both pretty dumb on the issue of who the Venezuelans will vote for when they perhaps have the right in five to seven years. They will 'not' vote in mass for the left like the dummies in the American right think but will vote in mass, just like the Cubans Americans, do for right wing politicians. We have a million of them here in Chile and I have yet to meet one of them that does not wish to kill all the socialists and communists anywhere they meet them. In fact, they become violent towards you if they think you are anyway shape or form a leftist. I have had several female friends tossed out of taxis driven by migrants from Venezuela that were ease dropping on their conversations and told them, "Get you nasty communist ass out of my taxi!". Funny thing is that taxi was no street legal yet there they are assaulting Chileans for thinking different then them.

There never have been waves of illegal immigrants voting.

Those getting caught for voting illegally have been Republicans.

Facts don't matter.

This is a religion.

Which is why it's believed by the same morons who think the earth is 6000 years old.

No surprises there. Our actual citizens can barely work up the energy to vote.
