Worst Bill of Week—AB 1461—Allows Illegal Aliens to Register to Vote at DMV

This is what they say AB 1461 would do:

“Authored by California State Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez (D-San Diego) and sponsored by California Secretary of State Alex Padilla, the California New Motor Voter Act would register every eligible resident who goes to a Department of Motor Vehicles to get a license or renew one, with the ability to opt out, potentially adding millions of new registered voters to California’s voter rolls.”

What it does is register anybody getting a license, period. Yes, illegal aliens can legally get a license, but it is noted it is an illegal alien. In the past illegal aliens were getting licenses by lying about their status. Seriously, illegal aliens LIE every day about their status to get benefits and to stay out of jail or deal with those pesky ICE folks that treat them like catch and release fish.

Do you think an illegal alien, automatically registered to vote will tell the authorities they are not qualified to vote? They lie about everything else, why not this? AB 1461 assures corruption of our elections—our elections will look like those of Mexico and other corrupt nations—and honest people will stop voting since illegal aliens will out vote them.

California New Motor Voter Act Clears Second Senate Committee

Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez, 7/15/15

AB 1461 Would Streamline Registration to Help Bring Millions of Eligible, Unregistered Voters Into the System

SACRAMENTOAssembly Bill 1461, also known as the California New Motor Voter Act, was approved today by the Senate Committee on Transportation and Housing on a 8-3 vote. The bill will now be considered by Senate Committee on Appropriations.

Authored by California State Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez (D-San Diego) and sponsored by California Secretary of State Alex Padilla, the California New Motor Voter Act would register every eligible resident who goes to a Department of Motor Vehicles to get a license or renew one, with the ability to opt out, potentially adding millions of new registered voters to California’s voter rolls.

“After record low voter participation last year, it’s our responsibility as elected leaders to take whatever steps we can to make casting a ballot as easy as possible for voters,” said Gonzalez. “This is a critical opportunity to bring millions of eligible voters into the election process by streamlining the registration process and continuing to modernize our entire voting system.”

The California New Motor Voter Act calls for data already being collected by the DMV to be provided to local election officials to expand voter registration while protecting the public’s right to privacy and to decline registration. Data collected by the DMV would be provided to the California Secretary of State’s Office after verifying a resident’s legal eligibility to vote. The Secretary of State then provides the information to county Registrars of Voters who maintain each county’s voter rolls. The bill would continue to protect those covered by existing confidentiality policies, such as peace officers, and voters would retain their right to cancel their voter registration at any time.

An estimated 6.6 million Californians are eligible to vote but unregistered, ranking the state 38th among the 50 states in voter registration.

In 2014, Gonzalez authored the VOTE Act (AB 1873), creating a pilot program in San Diego County to provide all voters with mail ballots in special legislative elections. Assemblymembers Kevin McCarty (D-Sacramento) and Luis Alejo (D-Watsonville) are joint authors of the California New Motor Voter Act, which last month was approved by the full Assembly and by the Senate Committee on Elections and Constitutional Amendments.

Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez represents California’s 80th Assembly District, which includes portions of the cities of San Diego, Chula Vista and National City. She serves as Chair of the Assembly Select Committee on Women in the Workplace and is a single mom.

  1. There is a really good fix for this.

    1. Throw California out of the Union, and into “Territory” status.
    2. Cut off all federal funds to the state of and every city and county. Only provide military funds for defense purposes for the rest of the nation.

    That’s it, that’s all. They need to be gone, like the worst child ever, kicked out.

    • John Steele says

      Folks , this is pure insanity on the part of the democraps. They are planning to just have the illegals out vote the America voters and these illegal criminals will ALWAYS vote more taxes as they rarely pay them. If they do pay it, they suck on the tax payers tit and get way more back than they put in. When is the insanity going to be stopped. Leave this lousy state or move up into the hill counties. VOTE TRUMP folks as the rest of the repubs are ALL in with illegals being here and voting.
      Note that PROP 14 IS RESPONSIBLE for the huge decline in voting. They are never going to address the real cause. Just sign up everyone , including illegals..DEMOCRACY IS DEAD IN KALYFORNIA

      • Can this really be true? How come all this corruption is so endemic to this state? How come? My family is moving or has moved away but I’m not too sure all these problems won’t follow them. I feel too tainted by my native California status to move anywhere else in the country. What fools these hispanic surname people are.

    • bill fiscus says

      he i live here and i think that would be a great idea show the liberals and demostupids this is what you get iam already looking for a new place out of this screwed state let the morons like boxer brown pelosi and fienstien drive it into the ocean

  2. Really??? says

    *LMAO* (If you don’t know the phrase look it up)

    They destroy party primaries as a way to “encourage” more voters. In reality they wanted to destroy the party system. Now the quote below?

    “After record low voter participation last year, it’s our responsibility as elected leaders to take whatever steps we can to make casting a ballot as easy as possible for voters,” said Gonzalez”

    Note Gonzalez doesn’t state casting ballots should be only done by Citizens of the country, and only Citizens should be allowed to vote if they are legally registered in their city. Convenient is it?
    Where in the bill does it state it is a crime punishable by dismissal if a government official registers illegals or felons? The Dem’s don’t give a darn unless it increases their power…to heck with the rule of law.

    And yes I am a multi generational native and related original Spanish settlers.

    • John Steele says

      There’s an excllent article on DRUDGE today about the location of Sanuary cites and the power the democraps get for having illegals there. they are pucking up electoral seats in Congress using illegal alien populations. TYrump is right. Cut these cities off from the federal money and watch these cites scream and threaten.. Big deal. They are breaking ALL kinds of federal and state laws. Just 5 cities get 50% of the new immigrants. LA / SK Oakland / Chicago / NYC / Newwark. These 5 cities now control the national voting out come. This is the reason the democraps want illegals voting. They are now out voting the citizens… Again.. back Trump or Cruz to end Sanctuary cities and cut the money & democrat power to the bone.

  3. Is Gonzalez the evil-spawn of Gil Cedillo?

  4. NorCal Libertarian says

    I’m at a loss for words and for me, that is extremely difficult! Don’t these morons like Gonzalez, McCarty and Alejo in the state house READ and UNDERSTAND THE CONSTITUTION????? The ‘D’ after names must stand for DUMKOFF!!!! (sp)

  5. Gwen Zeller says

    There is absolutely disgusting

  6. It still has to be approved by voters and I give a small chance.

  7. This is just another long list of insane acts by the liberal/communist polititions to destroy the land.

  8. Priscilla says

    This is voter fraud, stuffing the ballot box. You are breaking the law if you register to vote when you are not eligible. Of course these illegals lie about everything and think that is the way of life. One told me one time, if you leave it outside that means you no longer need it, so it is mine. Go ahead, watch your votes for the upcoming federal elections be thrown out.

  9. I think you missed this point…

    (2) Except as provided in paragraph (3), the Department of Motor Vehicles shall electronically provide to the Secretary of State the records of a person who is issued an original or renewal of a driver’s license or state identification card if the proof that the applicant is required to submit to prove that his or her presence in the United States is authorized under federal law also establishes that the applicant is a citizen of the United States. The records shall include the person’s name, age, residence address, and electronic signature. electronic signature, and other voter registration information collected electronically by the Department of Motor Vehicles.

    Paragraph 3 states

    (3) The department shall not electronically provide the records of a person who is issued a driver’s license pursuant to Section 12801.9 of the Vehicle Code because he or she is unable to submit satisfactory proof that his or her presence in the United States is authorized under federal law.

    Gotta love fearmongering, but, hey, why should you speak truthfully.

    • Bernie 4 Pres. says

      The only intelligent comment to this article I’ve seen!

    • Lorena Espinoza says

      It baffles my mind how so many people are blinded by sheer willful ignorance. Glossing over the text in the law that explains why only ELIGIBLE (Citizens) will be registered and allowed to vote is completely misleading. The author of this article should be ashamed of himself. CA licenses for those who are undocumented explicitly spell out that they have Federal Limits (no voting rights). Undocumented people who apply for these licensed must disclose their legal stays, which is then stored in the DMV data base and may be shared with ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement). Moreover if an undocumented person ever registers to or actually attempts to vote, they are barred from obtaining legal status and are rendered inadmissible. Basically, it is not in their best interest to vote. False claims to US Citizenship are the nail in the coffin for the majority of immigration cases and many undocumented immigrants know this.
