This is NOT true. We must all stand together against people spreading falsehoods that can lead to eligible voters losing their sacred right to vote. We place full blame on state leaders like @KenPaxtonTX who have used alarmist language to advance this false narrative.
On Friday, the @TXsecofstate flagged 95,000 registered voters to county officials and asked them to consider checking to see if they are US citizens. These individuals already provided some documentation showing they were not citizens (when getting a drivers' license for example)
Of those 95,000, the Secretary said 58,000 individuals cast a ballot in one or more elections over a 22 year span from 1996 to 2008. We DO NOT know if any of these 58,000 individuals are non-citizens.
For example: A US permanent resident might have gotten their drivers' license in 2014 when they were not eligible to vote. However, a year later they may have been naturalized as a US citizen (over 50,000 are naturalized in Texas every year) and become eligible to vote in 2016.
