Georgia Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp slammed his Democratic opponent Stacey Abrams on Monday for seeming to suggest illegal immigrants will cast ballots in November, as she claimed the "blue wave" includes "undocumented" people.

"It means she wants illegals to vote in Georgia," Kemp said during an interview with Fox News. "I think hard-working Georgians should decide who their governor is, not people here illegally, like my opponent wants."

Kemp, who oversees Georgia's elections as secretary of state, added Monday that it was "absolutely" unlawful for a person in the U.S. illegally to vote in their electoral contest.

"It's against the law and against the Constitution, which makes it even more shocking that she would say that," Kemp said.

Abrams made the comments at a campaign event last week, where she was joined by Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., the Washington Free Beacon reported.

“But the thing of it is, the blue wave is African-American. It’s white, it’s Latino, it’s Asian-Pacific Islander. It is disabled. It is differently-abled. It is LGBTQ. It is law enforcement. It is veterans,” Abrams said. “It is made up of those who've been told that they are not worthy of being here. It is comprised of those who are documented and undocumented."

A spokeswoman for Abrams, who is running to become the country's first black woman governor, told the Washington Examiner Kemp had taken her boss' remarks "out of context."

"Dishonesty, incompetence and voter suppression have no place in the Secretary of State’s office, and Brian Kemp should resign immediately so that Georgians can be confident the election will be administered in a fair and competent manner," Abigail Collazo said.

"Kemp is running scared because he knows that Georgians are increasingly excited to vote for Stacey Abrams, and they aren’t going to let him steal this election or their futures," Collazo said.

Early voting in Georgia starts Monday.
