A federal judge appointed by Barack Obama has ordered the State of Florida to provide ALL election ballots in Spanish starting with the 2020 election cycle.
The judge agreed with a group of voters born in Puerto Rico who said the lack of Spanish ballots limited their access to the polls and that the English-only ballots are a violation of the Voting Rights Act.
This despite the fact that according to the University College of San Juan, nearly 95% of Puerto Ricans speak and read English fluently.
That fact is leading many to call the order a ploy for “illegal voting” by foreign nationals, including tens of thousands of “DACA” recipients who have official IDs but are ineligible to vote.
“Compliance with this Order is not optional,” wrote Chief Judge Mark Walker of the Northern District of Florida Gainesville Division, according to Fox News. “This Court will not hesitate to use every tool the law provides to enforce this Order.”
The judge also re-affirmed that people born in Puerto Rico are U.S. citizens and English-only ballots violate the rights of those raised and educated in Spanish.
Walker ordered that all primary and general election ballots must also be printed in Spanish starting with the ballots in March of 2020.
This order follows a previous injunction in the case, which stated the counties must provide sample ballots in Spanish for the November 2018 election. Walker’s latest order called for similar sample ballots should there be any election between now and the March 2020 primary.
Walker noted that his ruling is meant to ensure that greater ballot access is applied.
For now, this order effects only the state of Florida. FOR NOW. But watch over the next weeks and months, as more Obama appointees around the nation no doubt extend the order to cover every single ballot nationwide.
By the way, according to U.S. law, in order to be approved for U.S. citizenship, one must have:
- a basic understanding of the English language, including the ability to speak, read, and write simple common words and phrases, and
- a basic knowledge and understanding of U.S. history and the U.S. form of government, also known as “civics.”
One cannot vote without being a citizen. Is this really so difficult?
Prepare yourselves, my fellow citizens, for the unprecedented electoral crimes the Democrats will commit in the 2020 election.
