As far as proof of illegal immigrants voting, Mr. Wayne Thompson's recent letter is correct. You can find assertions from various right-wing organizations online. However, if you go to the mainstream press, such as Time Magazine (Feb. 13, 2017) and ABC News (discussing 2017 study), you will find that noncitizen voting is very rare. It is calculated to be between 0.0003 and 0.001 percent of all votes cast:

For instance, in Ohio, 126 noncitizens illegally voted since 2010, out of more than 15 million total. In a North Carolina study 19 were cast out of 4.8 million.

As for Mr. George Ice's assertions that I am guilty of a dip in civil discourse, I would remind him that in his original letter he accused Democrats of favoring voting by illegal immigrants for their own political advantage.
