Clinton-Gore Immigrant Naturalization Push Helps Gore

Monday, 06 November 2000 12:00 AM

Shockingly, in the last two years in California alone the INS has naturalized more than 1.6 million resident aliens – most with a tendency to favor Democrat candidates – making them citizens and eligible to vote.

Moreover, the incredible increase in naturalized citizens – 5.6 million nationally from 1991 to 2000 – has also taken place in other electoral toss-up states, including Washington, Illinois, Michigan and Florida, according to the Boston Globe.

"As the deadline for voter registration neared in Chicago earlier this month, the Chicago INS office was holding two swearing-in ceremonies a day to accommodate the crush of newly minted citizens. In Illinois, an estimated 85,000 new citizens have taken the oath in the last two years, most of them in heavily Democratic Chicago," the Globe reported

"In smaller but closely contested Washington state, the number of new naturalized citizens shot up from 3,289 in 1991 to more than 16,000 in the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30. As in California, Mexican-Americans dominate among new citizens."

The phenomenon is a repeat of what happened during the 1996 election year when the INS, spurred on by Vice President Al Gore, put out a dragnet for new citizen voters and added thousands of probable Democrat voters.

Even more frightening are press reports that the White House has sent out letters over Bill Clinton’s signature to noncitizens that urge ineligible noncitizens to vote for Democrat candidates and attached voter ID cards making it possible for them to go to the polls.

In 1996, the INS broke all records for swearing in new citizens. According to congressional investigators Gore's office pressured the INS to naturalize 1 million new voters by Election Day.

In memos to Gore and to President Clinton, their staffers cited the need to naturalize a million new voters for the 1996 election. In one of them, Gore was urged to put pressure on the INS to ''waive any INS rules, provided they stay within the law.'' Gore replied by e-mail: ''We'll explore it. Thanks.''

In a memo to Clinton obtained by congressional investigators an aide wrote: "You asked us to expedite the naturalization of nearly a million legal aliens who have applied to become citizens.''

It recommended, ''Lower the standards for citizenship,'' but warned, ''INS warns that if we are too aggressive at removing the roadblocks to success, we might be publicly criticized for running a pro-Democrat voter mill.''

In response to this White House pressure INS swore in 1,044,689 new citizens in the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30, 1996. As a result of the speeded-up process, INS failed to do fingerprint checks on about 180,000 of the applicants that year, 80,000 of whom had criminal records, with 6,300 having committed serious crimes.

The result of this skullduggery: Clinton beat Bob Dole among Latino voters 70 percent to 21 percent.

Observers fear a repeat and warn that it could keep George W. Bush from carrying California.
