President Donald Trump says thousands of noncitizens voted in Nevada during the presidential election.
His comments came in a Thursday morning tweet.
He wrote: “Just released data shows many thousands of noncitizens voted in Nevada. They are totally ineligible to vote!”
Nevada’s Republican Party noted on its website on Saturday that the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles had been registering all voters who applied for driver's licenses.
“What you may not know, is that in Nevada, legal and illegal noncitizens can hold driver’s licenses and identification cards,” it said. “Thus, unless they do their due diligence, they are prompted to register to vote.
“The DMV finally provided a list of green card holders and noncitizens who had obtained driver’s licenses. When we compared this detailed information against the county voter records in Nevada, we discovered that 6,260 noncitizens were registered to vote and 3,987 non-citizens had voted.”
