Come to find out, Texas is wanting to check our voter rolls against a federal immigrant database to try to weed out non-citizens from the Texas voter rolls.
Texas Secretary of State officials were drafting a letter Wednesday formally requesting access to the Department of Homeland Security database, which contains more than 100 million immigration records, said Rich Parsons, an agency spokesman.
Texas Secretary of State Esperanza “Hope” Andrade, an appointee of Republican Texas Gov. Rick Perry, is the latest GOP elections leader to request access to the database since Homeland Security officials last week granted Florida permission to use the database.
Due to a mix-up in the Things a Mother Should Know guidebook, there are actually some people in the world with the same name. I know, it’s hard to believe that we haven’t fixed that yet.
So, if your name is Carlos Garcia, odds are better than average that there’s one or two other Carlos Garcias in the world and one of them might be on the immigration database.
In fact, if your name is Esperanza Andrade, like Rick Perry’s appointed Secretary of State who is requesting these records, you might he crusin’ for a brusin’ on voting day. I had a friend find out exactly how many Esperanza Andrades there are on the Texas voting records.
More than two or three. There are 8 Esperanza Andrades registered to vote in Texas. So, if there is even one Esperanza Andrade on the federal immigration list, do all 8 of these nice ladies get their voter registration card revoked?
Since Hispanics in Texas vote overwhelming Democratic, your thinking mechanism wouldn’t kink-up by supposing that this is just another attempt to deny minorities the right to vote.
By the way, there are 84 Alberto Gonzales’s registered to vote in Texas, but only one Karl Rove.
Thanks to Kyle for the heads-up.
