Evers calls for automatic voter registration in Wisconsin

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Gov. Tony Evers wants to implement automatic voter registration in Wisconsin.

Evers is proposing it in his state budget released Thursday.

The budget requires state elections officials to work with the Department of Transportation to implement automatic voter registration as soon as possible.

Sixteen states have automatic voter registration.

Typically, as people apply for or renew a driver's license they're either automatically registered to vote or asked whether they would be automatically registered.

The plan would have to be approved by the Republican-controlled Legislature.

I just recently relocated from California to Wisconsin. I can tell you from experience & knowledge, California has the same law in effect. The result is illegal aliens vote in local, state, & federal elections. It is vital for the Republican state legislators to hold the line! And say no to this left wing, progressive governor & state attorney general. Furthermore, the purposes budget increases taxes from gas. Thus, putting more locks on the middle-class families. Don't California my Wisconsin!

Tony loves illegal immigrants so much I wonder if it matters to him if there citizens or not?

The Border Patrol, DHS, ICE our Military & the Army Corps of Engineers have all endorsed the need for a wall numerous times almost nightly. However, immigration experts Nancy Pelosi & Chuck Schumer disagree, saying the wall won't work, oh and they also have zero ideas. I'll go with the opinions of the border patrol not open borders crowd. Barrack Obama’s own border patrol chief, Mark Morgan, has repeatedly stated that walls work. They free up resources to focus on the points of entrances so they can detect more contraband and illegals.

Democrats view U.S. citizens as acceptable collateral damage to their future long range goals of flooding the country and taxpayers paying the bill. Democrat politicians and their voters have put families at risk of being victimized by illegal aliens as in the cases Kate Steinly (nothing done) then.... Mollie Tibbetts, (nothing done) and now, Police Cpl. Ronil Singh nothing will be done...who's next? These victims would be alive today if our border was secured

To Democrats/Progressives/Socialists (whats the difference?) programs like Temporary Protective Status (TPS) or Deferred Action For Childhood arrivals (DACA) are permanent programs....there is nothing "temporary or deferred." These programs are designed to admit refugees (usually from the third world) then Democrats fight to keep them here permanently using the charge of racism, religion, guilt against anyone opposed. Simple formula works great.

More caravans on the way. The current migration at our border is costing U.S taxpayers a Kings ransom. Fleeing persecution? or fleeing for freebies? they sure don't stay in Mexico when they reach "safety" or ask or offered political asylum in Mexico. Why? because Mexico will give them NOTHING. So they make the long journey to our border, our generous Democrats, and our tax dollars. Notice how many have made the long, difficult, dangerous journey to our country 8-9 months pregnant? Why would they do that? we all know. Give birth on American soil and the U.S. taxpayers will not only pay for the birth of you're child but will also give you state government assistance

Just a few examples of the more outrageous costs associated with illegal immigration, we will pass this burden on to our children & grand children as has been passed on to us.

*Congress debating DACA in is costing taxpayers millions of dollars. Thank the parents and Barrack Obama.

*Cost of educating illegal aliens is staggering. From K-12 it costs taxpayers on average $122,000 for EACH illegal alien student. This does not include the millions spent on bilingual ED, instructors, & day care. School class size are negatively impacted by illegal aliens and our students suffer as a result.

*Taxpayers are funding "in state college tuition" discounts for illegal aliens. (AZ voted to terminate this taxpayer expense.) Cost to taxpayers over a billion dollars annually.

*About one in five inmates in federal prison are foreign-born, and more than 90 percent of those are in the United States illegally. This does not include local jails and state prisons. At roughly $24,000 per year expense per inmate in Prison U do the math.

*$3Million Dollars a DAY is spent to incarcerate, process Illegal aliens in the Criminal justice system.

* Emergency services for city & states increase with illegal immigration (sanctuary cities). Taxpayer pay for every Police, Fire, Paramedic service calls for illegal aliens in their city's. Taxpayers pay for all Hospital emergency room treatments, ambulances, medications. Hospital wait times for citizens are negatively impacted.

*Every child birth by illegal aliens in the US is paid for with tax dollars.In the US, the average cost to have a baby without complications during delivery, is $10,808, which can increase to $30,000 when factoring in care provided before and after pregnancy (July 9, 2018 google.)

* Section 8 housing. Citizens in poverty in many cases wait behind non citizens for housing.

*$2.2 Billion dollars a year is spent on is spent on food assistance programs such as SNAP, WIC, & taxpayer funded school lunches.

* The rumor of a new directive (Public Charge.) has illegal aliens refusing taxpayer funded benefits across the country. The new directive; if illegal aliens are using public services it could negativity impact their ability to stay in the United states or gain citizenship. This is already saving taxpayers millions & millions of tax dollars.
