The Texas Attorney General’s office confirms to the Todd Starnes Show they are investigating a report that illegal aliens were permitted to vote in Travis County, Texas.
“We received the Project Veritas video last night and have opened an investigation into the conduct displayed,” said Jeff Mateer, the first assistant attorney general.
Project Veritas filmed poll workers alleging that “tons” of so-called Dreamers were permitted to cast ballots in early voting.
“We got a lot of them – early voters,” the poll worker says.

The Project Veritas undercover investigator told the poll workers that her boyfriend was a Dreamer and wanted to know if he could vote.
“If he has his ID that’s all he needs. If he’s registered,” the election official said.
“Right. It doesn’t matter that he’s not a citizen, the Project Veritas journalist asked. “I saw some mess on the internet that it’s not legal for him to vote because…”
“No. Don’t pay any attention to that. Bring him up here,” the poll worker replied.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said if the video is accurate, the wrong doers will be punished.
“Illegal votes will be tossed out and wrongdoers will be prosecuted,” the governor wrote on Twitter.
I can’t verify if this is accurate. I CAN verify that it will be investigated and if it IS accurate, illegal votes will be tossed out and wrongdoers will be prosecuted. #txlege #tcot #PJNEThttps://t.co/CdrhV8YonH via @gatewaypundit
