[Ed. – Oh, the humanity!]

A Mexican citizen pleaded guilty to election fraud charges on Thursday in Montgomery County for voting illegally in the 2016 presidential election, among others.

Laura Janeth Garza, a 38-year-old Mexican national, was handed a 10-year jail sentence, a $10,000 fine and will be deported after serving her jail time, according to the attorney general’s office. She pleaded guilty to charges of voter impersonation and ineligible voting, both second-degree felonies.

Garza allegedly obtained documents to steal the identity of a U.S. citizen and illegally registered to vote in Harris County, according to a joint investigation by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and the Texas Department of Public Safety. She used the alias Angie Yadira Zamora and cast ballots in 2004, 2012 and 2016.
