We are off to a good start…
Understand that this lady is a criminal invader of our nation. She’s a thief, and her vote cancelled out the vote of a U.S. citizen…GOOD RIDDANCE…
The woman is an illegal alien. She broke the law just by being here and then cast a fraudulent ballot. Arrested, convicted, jailed and then deported. Law and order is finally being restored.
DALLAS (CBS11) – The family of a woman convicted of voter fraud is speaking out after a Tarrant County jury sentenced her to eight years in prison.
Prosecutors say the reason officials at the elections department in Dallas didn’t stop the voter fraud from happening is because Rosa Ortega claimed she was a citizen on her application.
Now the Tarrant County D.A.’s office is calling for those claims to be verified before handing out registration cards.
Ortega’s attorney said the mother of four will undoubtedly be deported.
“What’s going to happen to the kids? So it’s not fair,” Rosa’s uncle, Felipe Ortega said.
He points out his niece has spent almost her entire life in the U.S. Her attorney said she has a learning disability and was confused about the difference between being a citizen and a legal resident, so she thought she was allowed to vote.
“The jury didn’t believe that story. They believed that the defendant knew exactly what she was doing, and they responded accordingly,” Prosecutor Jonathan White said.
White told CBS11, when Ortega tried to register to vote in Tarrant County, she admitted she was not a citizen, so her application was rejected. When she told them she had already been voting in Dallas County, that’s when investigators started looking into her case. Defense attorney Clark Bidsall said his client’s case has been politicized and now Ortega has a difficult road ahead even after her sentence.
My Favorite Quote, From her Attorney:
In addition to the long prison sentence, Ortega is likely to be deported, her lawyer Clark Birdsall said.
“She’ll do eight years in a Texas prison,” he told the Times. “And then she’ll be deported, and wake up blinking and scratching in a country she doesn’t know.”
