Despite liberal objections, Texas just made a major 2016 announcement that could change the entire course of the presidential race. If the Supreme Court rules in favor of Texas, this would be a major blow to Democrats, especially Hillary Clinton, who oppose any voter ID law!
After a circuit court ruled that Texas’ voter ID law was unconstitutional, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed a petition for a “writ of certiorari” with the Supreme Court to reinstate its voter ID law.
SB 14 was signed into law in 2011 by then-Governor Rick Perry. The Texas Association of Hispanic County Judges and County Commissioners, Texas State Conference of NAACP Branches, Mexican American Legislative Caucus of the Texas House of Representatives, League of United Latin American Citizens, The United States of America, La Union Del Pueblo Entero, Inc., Texas League of Young Voters Education Fund, and others sued claiming the law was unconstitutionally discriminatory.
The AG argues that the court of appeals affirmed the district court finding that “Plaintiffs have not demonstrated that any particular voter . . . cannot get the necessary ID or vote by absentee ballot under [Texas’ voter-ID law].” He also argues that there is no evidence that the law affected political participation by minority voters. This would be “fatal” to a “vote-denial” or “vote-abridgement” claim under section 2 of the Voting Rights Act, he reasons.
The vast majority of Americans support voter ID laws and Texas should be allow to implement this common sense voter protection measure before the presidential election! States have the right to know who is voting in their elections!
