Is Seattle law enforcement aware of this?
When Maria Gianni is knocking on voters’ doors, she’s not bashful about telling people she is in the country illegally. She knows it’s a risk to advertise to strangers that she’s here illegally — but one worth taking in what she sees as a crucial election.
The 42-year-old is one of dozens of volunteers — many of them illegal immigrants — canvassing neighborhoods in the Seattle area trying to get naturalized citizens to cast a ballot for candidates like Democratic Sen. Patty Murray, who is in a neck-to-neck race with Republican Dino Rossi.
Pramila Jayapal, head of OneAmerica Votes, says the campaign is about empowering immigrants who may not feel like they can contribute to a campaign because they can’t vote.
“Immigrants really do matter,” Jayapal said. “If we can’t vote ourselves, we’re gonna knock on doors, or get family members to vote.”
Uh, you need to correct that statement, Jayapal. LEGAL immigrants matter. They can’t vote because they’re not legal residents or legal citizens. What about ILLEGAL don’t you understand?
So far the illegal immigrants going door-to-door aren’t meeting opposition. Craig Keller, an organizer for Respect WA, a group pushing for stricter immigration law in the Washington, said he doesn’t mind illegal immigrants volunteering for vote drives, he just wants to make sure mistakes on the voter rolls don’t allow them to vote.
“Anybody can go out and wave a sign, but when it comes to who’s making the choices, there’s no question they need to be citizens,” Keller said.
No opposition? Let an illegal alien come to MY door, and I guarantee you they’ll wish the fuck they hadn’t. Keller doesn’t mind a felon with no right to be in the United States pushing for votes? I sure as hell do.
Get the chutzpah:
……There’s always a risk,” Gianni said in Spanish about her legal status. “But if there’s a change, I would feel like I contributed, even in a small part, to a change we all need.”
Gianni arrived in the United States on a visa 13 years ago looking for work and stayed. For a while her only son lived here, but has since moved back to Mexico.
“In order for there to be a change to our broken immigration system,” she said, “I believe one has to fight.”
Radical leftwing illegal alien groups in this country are breaking the law. They harbor, aid, and abet felons in direct violation of federal statutes.
I fired this email off to the Washinton State Attorney General:
This was reported in the news yesterday:
Illegal Aliens Canvass for Votes in Wash. State
As a State Attorney General, you should be aware that the presence of illegal aliens in the United States is a violation of Title 8 of the U.S. Code, sections 1324 and 1325. In other words, it’s a felony.
Don’t you think you need to check into this? Don’t you think that you should make sure that they, and those who harbor and hire them, are prosecuted?

If I get an answer, it’ll probably be a tapdance that makes Fred Astaire look like an amateur.
There’s a reason for their “activism”. If all the illegals were deported, the Dems would lose an entire voting bloc.
