The Justice Department's civil rights division has objected to the new photo ID requirement for voters in Texas, saying many Hispanic voters lack state-issued identification.The Justice Department would have no authority over Texas elections if it wasn't for the Voting Rights Act. But 47 years after it was enacted the civil rights activists still operate as though Texas is a hellhole of discrimination, thus enabling them to use this bad law to control Texas elections (and elections in a number of other Southern states).
The department says the state has failed to show that the newly enacted law has neither a discriminatory purpose nor effect.
In a letter to Texas officials, the Justice Department says Hispanic voters in Texas are as much as 120 percent more likely than non-Hispanic voters to lack a driver's license or personal state-issued photo ID.
The repeal of the Voting Rights Act is long overdue. It's nothing but a tool of the left to promote election fraud and especially voting by illegal aliens.
