New report: Voter fraud by non-citizens virtually non-existent

The Immigration Policy Center is out with a new report (“Chicken Little in the Voting Booth: The Non-Existent Problem of Non-Citizen Voter Fraud“) that summarizes the findings of a number of nonprofits and government agencies over the past several years on the question of voter fraud by non-citizens. The central conclusion: It ain’t a problem for several reasons, but one very obvious one stands out. 

“Fighting Phantoms: No Evidence of Widespread or Systematic Vote Fraud by Non-Citizens

Election experts tend to agree that modern-day voter fraud is a very rare occurrence in the United States, primarily because it is so irrational. The potential payoff (a vote) is not worth the risk of jail time, thousands of dollars in fines, and—in the case of non-citizens—possibly deportation.”
