As midterm elections approach, concerns around voter integrity have risen. While claims of voter fraud have been prevalent following recent elections, there has been little tangible proof of fraudulent voting. 

Although that is the case, Florida recently arrested a Jamaican illegal immigrant who was using a fake ID to vote in local elections. Along with being an illegal immigrant, he was convicted felon.

Florida Politics reported that “The state Election Crime Unit has arrested a man who investigators say voted in Broward County but is living in the country illegally.”

“Alfred Samuels voted in two Broward Special Elections this year, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE),” the report noted. “He registered to vote there in March 2021 under the alias Alford Nelson using a counterfeit birth certificate from New York City, according to police.”

“Samuels has gone by at least seven different aliases, according to the Department of Corrections, and has previously served prison time in prison for 11 felonies, including cocaine possession, selling/purchasing drugs within 1,000 feet of a school, resisting arrest with violence and trafficking cocaine,” the report continued.

“Samuels faces five years in prison and a $5,000 fine for two counts of voting as an unqualified elector.”

Because of arrests such as this one the Election Crimes Unit of Florida has come under fire as critics say their enforcement of election integrity is “racist” and is a form of “vote suppression.”

The Palm Beach Post reported on the arrests related to election crimes by Florida’s Election Crimes Unit.

“Voter intimidation? Black voters over-represented among those arrested so far for election crimes.

“The vast majority of Florida residents who have been arrested by Gov. Ron DeSantis’ new election crimes unit are Black.

“That 15 of the 19 arrested so far are Black confirms for DeSantis’ political opponents and for voting rights advocates that the new unit is functioning precisely as intended — not as a bulwark against nearly non-existent election fraud but as a means of suppressing and intimidating Black voters who are unlikely to support DeSantis or other Florida Republican Party office-seekers.”

The left is calling these arrests suppression of black voters, but as detailed in the case of Alfred Samuels, Florida’s ECU is following the rules and regulations of voting requirements to determine if a voter has broken the law.
