No, and no.
Non-citizens cannot vote, and voter suppression tactics such as this have been Republican SOP for many years now, so if you're imagining that this is some kind of double reverse intended to rile up the immigrant vote, highly unlikely.
The Republicans understand that a lot of potential Democratic voters are marginalized by race or class, and that such people can be intimidated by "anonymous" mailers, flyers and robo-calls claiming that voting will trigger some kind of legal reprisal, or that voting involves dealing with hostile bureaucracies, or that if they've ever made any mistakes trying to vote will bring unwanted attention from the police. Really, it happens every election. That and things like limiting the number of voting machines in poor and black neighborhoods can make the difference in a tight election.
But, of course, in the last election Democratic operatives were "offering crack to negroes to get them to vote", so it all balances out.
