300+ illegal aliens registered to vote in Bexar County TX

And 40+ of them actually cast ballots in election(s).

...In a review of the past six years, Callanen said 330 undocumented people had registered to vote, and that 41 of them had voted — even though they later acknowledged they were not U.S. citizens.

The 330 people had received jury duty summons cards because their names were culled from the county's voter registration rolls.

Callanen said 41 people admitted voting, some in multiple elections, between 2001 and 2007. Each one said they were unaware they could not register or vote...

... Republican legislators in a number of states, including Texas, have tried repeatedly to toughen the law by requiring voters to present one or more forms of identification. They say it is necessary to preserve the integrity of elections.

Democrats generally oppose such ballot security measures — calling them a back door effort to disenfranchise the elderly and minorities, who traditionally vote Democratic and who tend not to carry multiple forms of identification with their picture...

Of course they were "unaware". Everyone knows you can vote in any country you damn well please anytime you want. The USA is so backward about this whole citizen of the world thing.

Naturally, they were all getting jury summons too. How many convictions will be overturned on appeal now because of tainted these juries these citizens of the world sat on?
