      *Obama�s Army of Illegal Election Workers*

      Posted By *Matthew Vadum* On November 5, 2012 ****

      Democrats have enlisted thousands of young illegal immigrants to drag their
      supporters to the polls on Election Day tomorrow.****

      These get-out-the-vote workers may or may not be breaking the law by
      helping with voter mobilization. Because the workers are already unlawfully
      present in the United States, presumably all employment they engage in
      �including electioneering� already violates laws against unauthorized
      employment.****

      It�s not like their patron, President Obama, would do anything about it
      anyway. This past summer Obama swept
      aside<http://frontpagemag.com/2012/matthew-vadum/obamas-gift-to-illegal-aliens/>federal
      law in order to pander to this growing constituency. In a move more
      imperial than presidential, Obama bypassed Congress and partially
      implemented the so-called proposed DREAM Act which would have offered a
      path to U.S. citizenship for youthful illegals who served in the armed
      forces or attended college. Up to 1.4 million illegal aliens could benefit
      from the move.****

      Using undocumented aliens as election workers is a new low for the activist
      Left.****

      �For people who aren�t supposed to be in the country in the first place to
      be deployed for partisan advantage is the last straw,� said Dan Stein,
      president of the Federation for American Immigration Reform, a group that
      favors limits on immigration levels.****

      ��The strategic deployment� of illegal immigrants who benefit from the
      Obama administration program is a �corruption of the political process,��
      he said.****

      And there can be little doubt that some of the Obama supporters these
      election workers cajole into voting booths will themselves be illegal
      immigrants ineligible to vote in the national election. Lax, and in some
      cases non-existent ID requirements, at the state level will allow people to
      vote who have no legal right to vote.****

      In the battleground state of Nevada, Culinary Workers Union Local 226 is
      strong-arming union members who are bona fide U.S. permanent residents into
      unlawfully casting ballots. (Permanent residents, or green card holders,
      are allowed to reside and work in the U.S. permanently but are not allowed
      to vote unless they become naturalized as U.S. citizens.) The union is
      affiliated with the UNITE HERE labor federation.****

      Union members who have a shaky grasp of the English language told Glenn
      Cook of the *Las Vegas
      Review-Journal<http://www.lvrj.com/opinion/how-many-noncitizens-are-registered-to-vote-177141441.html>
      * that they were tricked into signing voter registration forms and are now
      being pressured to vote. President Obama and Democrats are counting on the
      unions in Nevada to help get them across the finish line tomorrow.****

      �One of the immigrants was visited at home by a Culinary representative and
      said the operative made threats of deportation if no ballot was cast,� Cook
      writes. He notes that in Nevada no proof of citizenship is required in
      order to register to vote or to vote. �One would establish identity and one
      would establish residence,� Clark County Registrar of Voters Larry Lomax
      said. �Just like every other voter in Nevada, they will not be asked to
      prove citizenship.�****

      In the swing states of Colorado, Florida, and Ohio, the young illegal
      aliens doing the voter-mobilization work are �often referred to as Dreamers
      after the failed DREAM Act legislation that would have offered them a path
      to citizenship.� They are knocking on doors, working in telephone banks,
      and asking students on college campuses to vote, the *Wall Street
      Journal<http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970204789304578089363129186472.html>
      * reports. They are also active in solid-blue California and in
      Republican-dominated Texas.****

      The illegal campaign workers are targeting Latinos, a fast-growing
      demographic that President Obama has urged to �punish� its �enemies.� Obama
      is reportedly running ahead among Latino voters so the efforts of the
      so-called Dreamers could help down-ticket candidates in congressional and
      state races.****

      One of the leading groups exploiting the free labor of undocumented workers
      is the Colorado Immigrants Rights Coalition (CIRC). Illegal campaign
      workers �are winning the hearts and minds of Coloradans through their
      efforts,� said CIRC executive director Julien Ross.****

      CIRC pushed the Obama administration to enact a policy, now called Deferred
      Action for Childhood Arrivals, that lets those under the age of 31 who
      arrived in this country by age 16 and have lived here for the last five
      years to seek a renewable two-year reprieve from deportation and a work
      permit.****

      CIRC has some unsavory friends. It is a �partner� with the far-left Center
      for Community Change (CCC) and the National Day Laborers Organizing Network
      (NDLON).****

      CCC is headed by Deepak
      Bhargava<http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/individualProfile.asp?indid=2423>,
      who worked for a decade at ACORN. CCC
      sponsored<http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/printgroupProfile.asp?grpid=6434>a
      December 2007 forum for thousands of community organizers from across
      America. Bhargava introduced speaker Barack Obama at the event and said
      America was �a society that is still deeply structured by racism and
      sexism.� He elicited a pledge from Obama that if elected the president in
      2008 he would invite CCC and other Saul Alinsky-inspired community
      organizing groups to �help [the new administration] shape the agenda.�****

      NDLON�s mission is to
      interfere<https://www.capitalresearch.org/pubs/pdf/v1283448758.pdf>with
      the enforcement of immigration laws and its �strategy is to make legal
      everything about the illegal immigrant *except *his immigration status.�
      The group pressures local governments to set up day laborer centers and
      works with labor unions to unionize day laborers.****

      Felipe Sousa-Rodriguez from Brazil thinks illegal aliens getting involved
      in electoral politics is a great idea.****

      �We can�t vote but we can get people to vote who support our issues. It�s
      our way to participate in this democracy,� said Sousa-Rodriguez, who is
      supervising a get-out-the-vote drive in Florida and Ohio that is
      co-sponsored by United We Dream, a national undocumented youth network.****

      United We Dream�s stated mission is to create �meaningful alliances with
      other national immigrant and education rights organizations and making sure
      there is a voice for immigrant youth in these organizations.�****

      One of the group�s more high profile board members is Josh Bernstein.
      Bernstein is �director of immigration� at the radical labor union SEIU.
      (Who knew labor unions had directors of immigration?) Back in the 1980s he
      was director of Californians for a Fair Share, a group created to fight
      welfare cuts.****

      Take a guess which political party will benefit from all this unpaid labor
      performed by Bernstein�s illegal election workers and all the other illegal
      election workers mentioned in this article.****
