A bill to fund the Department of Homeland Security continues to be debated in Congress. One of the sticking points is over including appropriations to enforce President Obama’s executive amnesty plan.

There is a reported potential side-effect in Obama’s plan that might not surprise you:


President Obama’s temporary deportation amnesty will make it easier for illegal immigrants to improperly register and vote in elections, state elections officials testified to Congress on Thursday, saying that the driver’s licenses and Social Security numbers they will be granted create a major voting loophole.

While stressing that it remains illegal for noncitizens to vote, secretaries of state from Ohio and Kansas said they won’t have the tools to sniff out illegal immigrants who register anyway, ignoring stiff penalties to fill out the registration forms that are easily available at shopping malls, motor vehicle bureaus and in curbside registration drives.

Who didn’t see that coming?

The White House has said they will veto any bill that “mucks around” with Obama’s executive amnesty.
