Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller, who lately caught everyone’s attention with aan online post about throwing a bomb in the Middle East, nowadays is even more popular with his closer to home published meme in which he defends the Texas law that requires voters to present government-issued photo identification.
The meme on Miller’s Facebook page shows what looks like a voter registration card issued by Mexico under this text: “To vote in Mexico every eligible Mexican has to have a tamper-proof photo-ID card with a thumbprint and an embossed hologram.”
Right above the meme he published, Miller comments: “The federal government and the courts are fighting to overturn Texas’ voter ID laws saying they are racist. Voter ID laws seem to be working well in Mexico and they worked well in Texas. Our elections should be free from fraud and abuse. The people of Texas deserve no less.”
So, we decided to check the information by calling to the official information that Mexican Government has on its official site.
It says that: To vote in Mexico, according to Mexico’s National Electoral Institute, adult citizens must apply to the Electoral Roll by personally submitting an official form that includes their signature, fingerprint and photograph to a field office of the Federal Electoral Registry. There’s an office in every electoral district. There are some exceptions, such as for citizens who physically can’t go to the offices.
Two decades have past since the Institute has issued free photo- voting cards which is an obligatory document for exercising the control of voting. The site also states that this document contains the owner’s address, electoral district, full name, age and ID number.
Taking into consideration what Miller has previously stated, we have also checked the Institute official site, where it says that the front of each card has a hologram that changes color depending on the angle of light. The hologram is imprinted with the institute’s name, the agency says, and the agency’s Spanish initials, “INE.” Also there: an element that enables the ID to be verified by a radio frequency, the agency says.
Kenneth Greene, a University of Texas associate professor of government, stated that Miller was right about Mexico’s voting registration system that it’s a brilliant one and was created decades before just to overcome the decades of fraud happening there.
Eric Olson of the Latin American program at the Washington, D.C.-based Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, said, “Historically there has been so much electoral fraud in Mexico (not by immigrants but by the long-ruling governing party PRI) that Mexico undertook a major electoral reform in 1996 that included the creation of an electoral ID card that has become a default national ID card.” Olson said the card hasn’t ended voter fraud, “but it’s much more difficult.”
Miller said: “To vote in Mexico every eligible Mexican citizen has to have a tamper-proof photo-ID card with a thumbprint and an embossed hologram.”
But that’s not the case with United States of America.
Democrats regard the Blacks as too dump to posses an ID card and they want illegals voting so the party opposes voter ID.
But they’re not racists.
