Trump stands by claim of 3 million illegal alien votes

The HillPresident Trump stands by his belief that millions of people voted illegally in the 2016 presidential election, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Tuesday.

The spokesman doubled down on the false claim after the president raised it Monday night during a reception with congressional leaders.

Here's the thing: without voter ID laws in place we have no way to know this isn't happening. Even the people who claim to debunk this number have to focus on the number itself; they point to small numbers of prosecutions and convictions while ignoring that fact that without voter id laws and proof of citizenship requirements (which almost no states have in place) you have no way to prove that all 30+ million illegal aliens aren't voting. You simply have no idea.
