The article on Sunday about illegals flocking to Washington and a few other states because of easy driver’s license requirements left out what is another key piece of the story.
Every one of the illegals applying for a license is given a packet of information to fill out. One of the forms included in the packet is a voter registration form. The illegal resident sometimes has an interpreter guiding them through all of the paperwork they are filling out to get a driver’s license. They don’t actually fill out the form.
The federal government under the Voter Motor Registration Act mandates that every person applying for a driver’s license must be supplied a voter registration form. In addition, under other mandates, every social service agency that is provided federal funding must also provide voter registration forms.
The only proof of citizenship and right to vote that is required is to check a box that says you are a citizen of the United States. When you are done filling out the form it is sent to the auditor in your respective county.
Yes, every single person applying for a driver’s license in Washington is handed a voter registration form and under state of Washington law is not required to provide proof of citizenship. The employee at the driver’s license office is not allowed to ask if the applicant is a citizen of the United States.
Is something wrong with this picture?
