They send letters

"They" being the voter-suppression mob, who want to convince legal immigrants who are naturalized citizens that they aren't entitled to vote. Ezra found this one:
The state attorney general's office is investigating a letter received by some Southern California Hispanics that says it is a crime for immigrants to vote and tells them they could be jailed or deported if they go to the polls next month.[...]

The letter, written in Spanish, tells recipients: "You are advised that if your residence in this country is illegal or you are an immigrant, voting in a federal election is a crime that could result in jail time."
