“We’ve got tons of them. Tons of DACA voters.”
Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe released an undercover sting video on Tuesday from a polling station in Texas that appears to show an election official saying that they had had ‘tons’ of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients voting in the election.
A Project Veritas’ undercover journalist posing as the girlfriend of a potential DACA voter, visited a polling station in Travis County, Texas to ask election officials if he could vote.
“If he has his ID that’s all he needs. If he’s registered,” an election worker told the undercover journalist, The Daily Wire reports.
“Right. It doesn’t matter that he’s not a citizen?” the PV journalist replied, adding that she had heard on the internet that he could not vote.advertisement - story continues below
“No, Don’t pay any attention to that. Bring him up here,” the official said.
Another woman, who appeared to be an election official, said that there was not an issue with DACA recipients voting, saying, “we got a lot of ’em.”
“You’ve got a lot of them?” the journalist asked.
“Mmhmm,” the woman replied. “From early voter. We’ve got tons of them. Tons of DACA voters. Okay.”advertisement - story continues below
