(Republican Party News) – Democrats have been quick to sling mud at attempts to pass election integrity legislation ever since the 2020 presidential election and the various controversies with it that popped up, labeling such attempts as racist, however, a recent discovery reveals just how simple and easy it really is for a person to commit voter fraud.
According to a report from Western Journal, just last week, U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents managed to get their hands on 1,200 fake driver’s licenses from more than 20 states, according to information from the agency’s website.
“The fake IDs were part of three shipments from Hong Kong declared as $20 worth of ‘Game Card,’ with one labeled for a Chicago destination and the other two headed for New York,” the report said.
Many of the identification cards that were obtained reused photographs with different names and had dates of birth for each one that was consistent with someone who is college-aged.
Last week, CBP officers working in Indianapolis detained shipments that were arriving from Hong Kong mis-manifested as “Game Card” with a value of $20. Officers inspected the shipments and found nearly 1.2K counterfeit state driver's licenses.

“They were knock-offs of licenses from states including Michigan, Pennsylvania, California, Texas, New Jersey, North Carolina, South Carolina, Illinois and Ohio,” the WJ report said.
“Counterfeit driver’s licenses have historically been used by those under 21 years of age for the illegal consumption of alcohol, but fake IDs have also been used in criminal enterprises, such as identity theft cases and immigration fraud,” Chief CBP Officer Tim Hubbard stated as he spoke of the discovery.
“Customs and Border Protection officers will continue to be vigilant during enforcement operations, and we remain committed to the safety and security of our nation,” he continued.
“Though there is no indication of the intended purpose of these fake licenses, it’s noteworthy that this discovery comes at a time when Democrats are trying to stop any and all laws that promote secure elections — including voter ID requirements,” the report said.
Just earlier this month, Joe Biden referred to such efforts as “Jim Crow 2.0,” which is a rather insulting claim that assumes black people are not able to handle such basic tasks as securing a state-issued ID card or casting a ballot on Election Day without major hardship.
This also goes to demonstrate that Biden doesn’t really understand our history very well and what actual Jim Crow laws were about.
“Jim Crow 2.0 is about two insidious things: voter suppression and election subversion,” Biden stated in comments made in Georgia on Jan. 11.
“It’s no longer about who gets to vote; it’s about making it harder to vote. It’s about who gets to count the vote and whether your vote counts at all,” Biden continued.
Some Republican legislators want “to turn the will of the voters into a mere suggestion,” President Biden says in a speech on election reform.

“Following the disputed 2020 presidential election, more than 400 bills and 34 laws were passed at state and local levels to shore up the integrity of elections with measures such as restricting who can request and cast absentee ballots, limiting ballot drop boxes and similar practices, and requiring voter identification,” WJ reported.
It’s not unreasonable to place such requirements on voting, given how critical it is to the preservation of our liberty, to ensure that every American voice is heard on election day and that our leadership is chosen fairly.
The seizure of all these fake identification cards proves that there is indeed a black market already in existence for fraudulent government issued identification, so why wouldn’t there be one for fraudulent ballots? A lot of money could be made with such a product.
“Verifying votes and matching them with real voters presents a myriad of challenges even in the best of circumstances where identification is required and in-person voting is the norm, with ballots never leaving the polling location before the vote is cast,” the report added.
This just goes to further prove that the Democratic Party’s claim that election integrity laws are racist is nothing more than insane drivel at best.
It’s the Democrats who are racist here, assuming their black constituents are too dumb to navigate the process. And yet, no one is screaming about that on the news.
