Federal court says Texas voter ID violates Voting Rights Act


AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — A federal appeals court ruled Wednesday that Texas' voter ID law has a "discriminatory" effect on minorities in a victory for President Barack Obama, whose administration took the unusual step of bringing the weight of the U.S. Justice Department to fight a wave of new ballot-box restrictions passed in conservative statehouses ...

A federal trial opens Tuesday, Sept. 2, 2014, that will decide the fate of one of the nation’s most stringent voter ID laws. A judge will hear arguments on whether the law safeguards ballot integrity or discriminates against minorities by imposing a mandate that suppresses turnout. (AP Photo/Eric Gay)

Yeah, especially when they invalidate the maun part of the voting rights act last year. Looking back now, that seemed to be a prelude to what is going on today with these cops. It seems they want to bring back the old days.

Peace!

I see your already on top of this story.
Those crooks were at it again. They never quit.. what's Next... they will attempt redraw states lines. lol

The Wednesday decision was a victory for the president, who has directed the Justice Department to try to beat back a movement in several Republican-led state governments to implement ballot-box restrictions.

Democrats and civil rights advocates have been fighting the Texas law since it was passed in 2011. After early success, opponents of the law had to change tactics when the U.S. Supreme Court in 2013 struck down a key provision of the landmark Voting Rights Act.

That decision invalidated a section of the law that forced certain state and local governments to get clearance from the federal government before it changed voting laws.
========
Texas was then free to enforce its law, which requires one of seven forms of approved identification, a list that included concealed carry licenses but not a college student's university ID. Proponents said would reduce ballot fraud.

The Justice Department and its allies then turned to another section of the Voting Rights Act, arguing that the Texas law discriminated against minority voters.

A lower court ruled the Texas law was discriminatory, but the decision came so close to the 2014 mid-term elections that the state was allowed to keep the law in place.

On Wednesday — a day before the 50th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act — the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, in New Orleans, agreed with the lower court.

"Today's ruling is a victory for every Texas voter. Once again, the rule of law agrees with Democrats. The Republican voter ID law is discriminatory," Texas Democratic Party Chairman Gilberto Hinojosa said in a statement.
