Are South Carolina’s Welfare Agencies Enrolling Illegal Aliens To Vote?

They’re trying to, at least …

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

There are numerous threats associated with the total collapse we are witnessing at the U.S.-Mexico border. First and foremost is the immediate threat the illegal alien invasion poses to public safety – which was epitomized earlier this year by the savage murder of Georgia college student Laken Riley. There’s also the ongoing threat to our fiscal solvency – namely the hundreds of billions of tax dollars spent annually to provide for all of these new, undocumented arrivals. Longer-term, we face a growing threat to the integrity of our constitutional republic – specifically, the integrity of our elections.

Ongoing efforts by uniparty politicians to enfranchise non-citizens – including efforts implemented via a maze of taxpayer-funded welfare bureaucracies – strike at the very heart of our representative form of government and must be shut down.

Is that happening, though? Or are these agencies playing starring roles in a fundamental reshaping of the American electorate?

Earlier this week, a document purportedly tied to the S.C. Election Commission ( was highlighted by S.C. Freedom Caucus chairman Adam Morgan – who is currently campaigning for the Palmetto State’s fourth congressional district.

Take a look …



To be clear: The form shared by Morgan is not an official voter registration document distributed by It is, however, reportedly part of an application package for benefits doled out by the S.C. Department of Health and Human Services (SCDHHS) – which is part of the administration of governor Henry McMaster.

Morgan’s caucus acknowledged as much in a subsequent post on X …

“Turns out it was actually the SC Medicaid office (which) was distributing voter registration forms to non-citizens,” the caucus clarified. “This will be stopped.”

Will it, though?

Multiple state agencies are required by federal law – namely the 1993 National Voting Rights Act (NVRA) – to provide citizens with voter registration services, including “all public assistance agencies.” I have no issue with them doing so, although I believe such information should be limited to educational material – not actual registration-related documents. It is not the job of a public welfare agency to engage in voter registration.

There’s a key word there, though … citizens. What’s happening across the nation is an attempt to register non-citizens to vote.



In the case cited by Morgan – which involved a non-citizen in Spartanburg County – multiple attempts were made to register the individual even after she clearly indicated (in person and later in writing) that she was not a citizen.

Still, the voter registration forms kept coming.

“(She) was confused,” Morgan told us. “She thought she was required to fill the form out.”

Morgan said lawmakers plan on introducing a budget proviso which would bar the use of state tax dollars for such voter registration propaganda.

“Stop this nonsense in your state!” he wrote on X.

Stop being a disingenuous numpty. Illegal aliens can’t vote, collect welfare (have YOU paid back your PPP “loan” Mr Welfare Queen?), can’t get Medicare or Social Security…

Google “Lowcountry Immigration Coalition, et al. v. Nikki Haley” – in fact, illegal aliens can vote, are collecting welfare in a number of ways and are utilizing Medicaid and far worse, being treated and not paying because of EMTALA.

Ok, I took you up on that and wasted my time reading that case. It has nothing to do with illegal aliens collecting welfare or voting. Have you not read this case or were you making things up assuming most MAGAs will not be capable of reading the briefs in those cases?

The Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996, explicitly prohibits noncitizens from voting in federal elections. It is not legal in any state for a noncitizen to cast a ballot in a federal election. While federal law does not prohibit noncitizens from casting a ballot in state elections, no state currently allows noncitizens to vote in statewide elections. Note, that non-citizens and illegal aliens are not the same. People here on a VISA are non-citizens and people who are here waiting on an asylum hearing are not illegal aliens. That is why we use documented and undocumented. Nonetheless, non-citizens, including documented and undocumented non-citizens are NOT voting in state or federal Elections.

Undocumented immigrants are not eligible for welfare and or general Medicaid. Medicaid for emergency treatment may be available to reimburse a hospital for its out-of-pocket costs in treating an undocumented person on an emergency basis. But what do you “Christians” propose? Putting them in the street and watching them die. Well, knowing the type of “Christians” Trump and his supporters are, probably so.

Actually illegal aliens HAVE voted. they DO collect welfare, and also enjoy monthly stipends, free housing, education, food, medical care, AND a cell phone! Take a quick look in what’s happening in New York, Chicago, Denver, LA, and other major Blue cities across the country. The ultimate goal is to turn South Carolina blue as well.
