The Texas Democratic Party reportedly asked non-citizens to register to vote and sent applications to immigrants that pre-checked the citizenship box as “yes,” according to complaints filed on Thursday.

“The Public Interest Legal Foundation [PILF] alerted district attorneys and the federal Justice Department to the pre-checked applications, and also included a signed affidavit from a man who said some of his relatives, who aren’t citizens, received the mailing,” The Washington Times reported. “The Texas secretary of state’s office said it, too, had gotten complaints both from immigrants and from relatives of dead people who said they got mailings asking them to register.”

“This is how the Texas Democratic Party is inviting foreign influence in an election in a federal election cycle,” said PILF spokesman Logan Churchwell.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott responded to the report by saying that there will be “serious consequences” if the allegations are true.

“A complaint says the Texas Democratic Party asked noncitizens to register to vote, sending applications with citizenship box pre-checked,” Abbott said in a tweet. “This is being investigated. If true there will be serious consequences.”
