WTF: Why Are Dem ‘Refugee Welcome’ Baskets Including VOTER REGISTRATION Forms?

Written by K. Walker on March 25, 2017

Are they pulling this crap in YOUR state?

The Nebraska Democratic Party was incensed at President Trump’s Executive Order that temporarily restricted travel from 7 high-risk nations, so they did something about it. They decided that they wanted to pander Refugees to feel welcome.

The ‘Refugee Welcome Basket Project’ was born.

The basket contains the things you would expect — toilet paper, diapers, towels, dishes, etc. — but it also includes Voter Registration Forms.

Which is odd, since Refugees aren’t permitted to vote.

Refugees to the United States are only permitted to become a citizen once they have resided in the U.S. for 5 years and obtained Permanent Residency Status also known as a ‘Green Card’.

Watch Jane Kleeb, Chair of the Nebraska Democratic Party brag about the project.

The Voter Registration Forms are mentioned at the 2:40 mark:

So, it’s kinda weird to include one in a ‘Welcome Basket’, don’t you think?

Doesn’t it seem like they should use these cards to register to vote?

Everything else in the basket is useful. Why give them something they can’t use?

Intentionally or not, the Nebraska Democratic Party is making it easier to commit voter fraud.

But, if you listen to the Media (D) and the Left, voter fraud doesn’t exist.

Reached for comment, NDP Chairwoman Kleeb categorically denied any wrongdoing, stressing that “it is not illegal to be handing out voter registration forms so folks start to get familiar with the forms.”

When asked what the NDP expects refugees will do with voter registration forms, Kleeb said “Once they become citizens, it is our hope, like back in the day you would hear these stories of the Democrats in Ellis Island welcoming the Irish with food and a voter registration form, so it’s really that same concept.”

“We also just wanted them to know – the letter is from me as chair of the Nebraska Democratic Party – that they are welcomed in our state and that they can come to our events, and that we have an active Facebook page.”

“I put in my business card in those letters, and a bumper sticker for their cars just to make sure they knew that we, as the Democratic Party, welcomed them,” she added.

According to Kleeb, the purpose of sending voter registration forms to newly arrived refugees was so “they start to get familiar with democracy and how you become a voter in our country.”

“I registered individuals from Somalia and Sudan this election cycle that have recently become citizens, and this is a very new process for them. We had to sit down with them and really help them understand how to fill out their name and where to put in their birthdate because it’s just a whole new process for them than what they had in their home country,” Kleeb said.

It’s pretty sick if you think about it.

‘Welcome Refugees! We’re Democrats™ welcoming you. We hope you appreciate what the Democrats™ have done for you. Look at all these things that the Democrats™ have given you. We’ve given you crappy Democrat™ stickers to put on your Refugee car. And here’s a form for you to vote for Democrats™.’

Is it pre-filled out with Democrat™ already checked off?

Would you be all that surprised if it did?
