This week, the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina prosecutors
announced voter fraud charges against 19 non-citizens, from a variety of countries, whom they allege cast votes in the 2016 election after a years-long federal investigation.
Seven of the 19 non-citizens were charged with falsely claiming American citizenship or making false statements on voter registration applications. The seven were also charged with a misdemeanor for unlawfully casting ballots in the 2016 presidential election.
The seven include:
Francisco Antonio-Aguirre, 64-years-old, of Guatemala
Roob Kaur Atar-Singh, 57-years-old, of Malaysia
Rosalva Negrete-Toledo, 65-years-old, of Mexico
Dave Delano Virgil, 57-years-old, of Tobago
Eloy Alberto Zayas-Berrier, 70-years-old, of Cuba
Emmanuel Olakunle Atoyebi, 31-years-old, of Nigeria
Mokhtar Qaid Ahmed Gulaimid, 48-years-old, of Yemen
Another 12 non-citizens were hit with misdemeanor charges for unlawfully casting ballots in the 2016 presidential election. Those 12 include:
Ismay Prudence Kathleen James, 54-years-old, of Bermuda
Donald Christian Martyn, 44-years-old, of Sierra Leone
Chaim Pinto, 68-years-old, of Israel
John Andrew Rapsky, 54-years-old, of Canada
Baijoo Pottakulath Thomas, 58-years-old, of India
Shuqin Yin, 54-years-old, of China
Chirong Yin Billings, 56-years-old, of China
Henry Alberto Araya-Vega, 52-years-old, of Costa Rica
Rufina Concho-Locklear, 82-years-old, of Mexico
Alberto Damaize-Job, 73-years-old, of Nicaragua
Armando Nava-Juarez, 51-years-old, of Mexico
Manuel Efrain Valladares, 48-years-old, of El Salvador
If convicted, the 19 non-citizens face anywhere from one year to six years in federal prison and fines of $100,000 to $350,000. It is unclear if convictions will make the non-citizens eligible for deportation.
President Trump won North Carolina against Democrat Hillary Clinton in 2016 by
a margin of fewer than 174,000 votes. In Mecklenburg County, home to the state’s largest city of Charlotte, Clinton won by a huge margin with more than 62 percent of the vote.
In this year’s presidential election, Democrats are fighting to implement universal mail-in voting that would deliver every registered voter a ballot to fill out, unsolicited. Government Accountability Insititute (GAI) research director Eric Eggers has told Breitbart News that such a plan could see about
24 million ineligible or inaccurate voter registrants receiving mail-in ballots.
