They say where there is smoke, there is fire. Rosa Maria Ortega, 35, is not a citizen of the United States. Yet, she was arrested on Friday for having illegally voted in Dallas County five times! She is being held at the Tarant County Jail on a $10,000 bond–according to the Dallas-Fort Worth NBC affiliate Channel 5 News. They reported:

Ortega is married to an American and is living legally in this country, but is not a citizen and therefore, not qualified to vote, said Harry White, who supervises public integrity and white collar crime investigations for the Tarrant County District Attorney.

Ortega applied to vote in Tarrant County and acknowledged on the application form that she was not a citizen, White said. The county rejected her application and notified her she was not qualified to vote.

Despite her notification, she re-applied five months later–and, she claimed to be a U.S. citizen. She did not vote in Tarant county, but she did vote five times in a neighboring Dallas county. Illegal voting is a second degree felony; she could receive up to a 20-year-prison sentence.

She first voted in a 2004 Republican primary, then in a 2014 Republican primary. Currently, over 30 states have a voter ID requirement
