Trump: Immigrants Are Being Allowed To Enter The U.S. To Vote

Donald Trump declared Friday that it is “a disgrace” the Border Patrol is “letting people pour into the country so they can go and vote.”

The New York Post reported that the Republican presidential nominee made the allegation on the same day the National Border Patrol Council, the agents’ union, endorsed his candidacy. Trump claimed that agents are being ordered to allow undocumented immigrants to cross the border so they can vote against him.

The union’s vice president, Art Del Cueto, said at a recent roundtable event which Trump attended that although some imprisoned migrants have “criminal records,” agents are “setting them aside because at this point they’re saying immigration is so tied up with trying to get to the people that are on the waiting list, hurry up and get them their immigration status corrected, make them citizens.”

When Trump asked, “Why?” Del Cueto responded: “So they can go ahead and vote before the election.” Trump then said: “That’s a big statement, fellas. To me, that’s massive.” Del Cueto added: “That’s huge. … (They) want to hurry up and fast-track them so they can hurry up and be able to vote for these elections.”

The Associated Press reported that neither Trump nor Del Cueto gave any evidence supporting their claims. The news service pointed out that newly arrived immigrants are not permitted to take part in U.S. elections. Only U.S. citizens may register to vote.
