Throughout the entire campaign cycle, officials with Hillary Clinton’s campaign have repeatedly encouraged illegal aliens and liberal activists to influence the election through various means. While technically not election fraud, employing illegal aliens to canvass potential voters is certainly a new low for the Clintons.

As the Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton found herself in hot water after the FBI announced in late October that agents were re-opening their investigation into her use of a private email server and potential criminal mishandling of classified information. To deflect these new charges, Mrs. Clinton again accused the Russian government of interfering with the 2016 presidential election. But what has gone largely unreported—at least by the controlled corporate news media—is the fact that it is the Clinton campaign that has repeatedly encouraged illegal actors to influence the 2016 presidential election—namely illegal immigrants.
Although illegal immigrants cannot legally vote, many have been out canvassing for Clinton, encouraging their friends, neighbors, and others to cast ballots for the Democratic candidate, who has promised “a path to citizenship”—amnesty—to the millions of illegal aliens residing in the United States.
According to a report published by The Washington Post, many of the illegal immigrant activists canvassing for Clinton have received temporary legal status in the wake of the Obama administration’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which was enacted in 2012.
“All DACA recipients should take this on as an added responsibility, to change the power structure,” Luis Angel Aguilar, 28, explained to the Post. “Our voices need to be heard.”
Illegal immigrants, especially DACA recipients, recognized the stakes in the 2016 presidential election.
Donald Trump pledged to build a wall on the Mexican border, end birthright citizenship, and deport illegal immigrants. His Democratic rival, on the other hand, promised American citizenship to the millions of illegal aliens criminally residing in America.
It should be noted that illegal immigrants and their radical leftist supporters have also engaged in physical violence against Trump supporters at numerous rallies and events during this election cycle. Many radical leftist activists used Black Lives Matter-style tactics in an effort to protest Trump, blocking streets, tearing down and vandalizing Trump signs, and otherwise causing chaos and disruption.
Anti-Trump terrorists even fire-bombed a local GOP office in North Carolina in early October.
Meanwhile, Trump supporters largely engaged in peaceful, respectful demonstrations and rallied in massive numbers around the country at his speaking events.
Still, the hostile corporate media falsely portrayed Trump supporters as radical and potentially violent extremists, while downplaying, excusing, or even celebrating the violence and mayhem of the radical anti-Trump activists who have marauded in countless cities and communities across America. The truth came out, though. In a video published on the Internet by conservative filmmaker James O’Keefe, two Democratic Party activists, Scott Foval and Robert Creamer, can be seen admitting that their groups were the ones orchestrating the violence at pro-Trump rallies.
“The media is trying to falsely cast Trump supporters as villains while concealing our peaceful protests and most of the attacks on Trump supporters, just like they work to conceal the vast number of crimes committed against innocent U.S. citizens by illegal aliens,” William Gheen, president of the Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, recently stated. “Obama needs to come out and order his supporters in the heavily Democrat highcrime precincts to end the assault on our police officers, and Hillary Clinton needs to speak out against the disruptive, violent, property damaging civil rights violations her supporters are conducting against Christians and conservatives.”
While Mrs. Clinton pointed her finger at everyone, including the Russians, the FBI, WikiLeaks, and a whole host of other individuals and organizations, accusing them of attempting to interfere in the 2016 presidential election without a shred of credible evidence, illegal immigrants and other Democratic activists openly encouraged voters to support Mrs. Clinton with the hope of obtaining permanent U.S. citizenship.
The blatant hypocrisy boggles the mind.
