A Mexican women living in Texas has been charged with voter fraud.
However “voter fraud” is an understatement. The woman, who had been granted permanent status since her mother brought her to the U.S. as an infant (thanks, Obama!), had illegally voted at least five times.
Fox News reports the woman, Rosa Maria Ortega, 37, was found guilty on Wednesday of “two counts of illegal voting after she falsely claimed to be a United States citizen and voted at least five times between 2012 and 2014.”
Rosa Maria Ortega was sentenced to eight years in prison, and her lawyer speculates that she will be deported after her sentence. Ortega will serve her time in Texas.
Ortega’s mother had been deported since bringing her daughter to the U.S. illegally as a child. Ortega testified that she “didn’t understand the differences between the rights granted to citizens and the rights granted to legal residents.”
The judge wasn’t having any of her nonsense. Perhaps the horrible immigration practices of the Obama administration are to blame. Maybe Ortega should have been deported years ago, along with her mother.
“My mom just used us to get stamps. She never gave us love or guidance. She got deported,” she said. “All my life since I worked, I always on my knowledge thought I was a U.S. citizen because I never knew the difference of U.S. citizen and U.S. resident. And the point is if I knew, everything would’ve been the correct way.”
Ortega’s pleas are obviously lies. Number one, if you’re not sure about your immigration status you can Google it. Like most illegal immigrants, I’m sure she had an iPhone. Secondly, she knew exactly what she was doing. She wasn’t suspected of any crimes until she tried to register to vote twice in Tarrant County, Texas. She can’t claim ignorance there. Registering to vote twice shows that she was purposely committing voter fraud.
Do you think this woman should be deported to Mexico after she serves her eight years in prison? Share your thoughts in the comments section.
