NPR Reporter Assigned to Cover Posters Urging Illegals to Vote for Biden Won’t Answer Whether Aliens Voting Bothers Her:
Are your own tax dollars funding an effort to discredit news about flyers encouraging illegal aliens to vote for President Joe Biden in U.S. elections?
National Public Radio’s recent efforts to “cover” the story suggest an attempt to delegitimize it. NPR assigned a reporter with ties to left-wing groups funded by billionaire financier George Soros to write the story. That reporter refused to answer a question about whether she was concerned about illegal aliens voting in the 2024 presidential election.
Last month, The Heritage Foundation’s Oversight Project and the news site Muckraker exposed flyers posted at Resource Center Matamoros, just across the U.S.-Mexico border in Tamaulipas. (Heritage created The Daily Signal in 2014.)
The flyers, written in Spanish, urged migrants headed to the U.S. “to vote for President Biden when you are in the United States,” explaining that the resource center needs “another four years of his term to stay open.”
Gaby Zavala, the center’s founder, didn’t respond to The Daily Signal’s requests for comment, but she told other news outlets that she didn’t post the flyers. NPR told the story from Zavala’s perspective, quoting her before discussing the flyers.
“We have never encouraged people to vote for anyone,” Zavala told NPR, saying that she knows illegal aliens aren’t allowed to vote in U.S. elections.
Federal law prohibits illegal aliens from voting in federal elections. Some jurisdictions, such as Washington, D.C., allow them to vote in local elections.
The NPR article raises many questions about the vote-for-Biden flyers, suggesting that they represent a political ploy, rather than a legitimate discovery. It frames the Oversight Project’s executive director, Mike Howell, and Muckraker founder Anthony Rubin as troublemakers.
NPR’s article quotes Jared Holt, who used to write for the far-left website Right Wing Watch, warning that “claims like these … may very well be another possible avenue to try to delegitimize democratic processes in this country.”
The article also didn’t seriously address the “Vote Biden-Harris” sign found at a camp outside the center, nor a social media post showing balloons celebrating President Donald Trump’s loss to Biden in the 2020 election on Nov. 7, 2020.
A recent study estimates that 10-27% of non-citizens are registered to vote, and based on previous elections and federal data, at least 1-2.7 million non-citizens will vote in the 2024 election. --->READ MORE HERE

DC Holds Training Sessions for Noncitizens to Vote:
An agency of the District of Columbia held a training session last month to teach illegal immigrants and other noncitizens how to vote, according to documents obtained by the watchdog group Judicial Watch.
News of the training session held by the local government in the nation’s capital comes as House Republicans push a bill—with the backing of Speaker Mike Johnson, R-La.—to require proof of U.S. citizenship to register to vote.
The D.C. Board of Elections conducted the April 10 event, called “Non-Citizen Voting Education Virtual Training.”
Judicial Watch obtained 13 pages of the training session’s PowerPoint presentation through a request under the Freedom of Information Act. On one slide, the presentation says:
Non-U.S. citizen residents can vote in District elections for the offices of Mayor, Attorney General, Chairman or member(s) of the D.C. Council, member(s) of the State Board of Education, or Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner(s) Non-U.S. citizen residents cannot vote for Federal Offices.
The Heritage Foundation’s Oversight Project previously raised concerns about noncitizen voting in the District of Columbia. (Heritage established The Daily Signal in 2014.)
The District of Columbia is joined by local governments in California, Maryland, and Vermont in allowing foreign citizens to vote in local elections. Federal law allows only U.S. citizens to vote in federal elections.
State courts blocked New York City from allowing noncitizen voting there. --->READ MORE HERE
