The Letter That Rocked Orange County


Greetings:

You are being sent this letter because you were recently registered to vote.  If you are a citizen of the United States, we ask that you participate in the democratic process of voting.

You are advised that if your residence in this country is illegal or you are an immigrant, voting in a federal election is a crime that could result in jail time and you will be deported for voting without having a right to do so.

At the same time, you are advised that the government of the United States is installing a new computer system to verify the names of all newly registered voters who vote in the October and November elections.  Anti-immigration organizations can ask for information from this new computer system.

Unlike Mexico, here, there is no incentive to vote.  There is not a voter registration card in the United States.  Therefore, it is useless and dangerous to vote in any election if you are not a citizen of the United States.

Do not listen to any politician who tells you the opposite.  They are only looking out for their own interest.  They only want to win elections without any regard to what happens to you.

Sergio Ramirez
