Perry should tell Holder and Obama to take a hike. No photo id no ballot and no vote.
If they require voter id then all voters mush show id not just some so the burden would be equally shared by everyone.
This is just more division from the executive branch.
I would dearly love for a state, any state, would tell Holder and Obama to got straight to hell. Do what is best for that state regardless.
Excuse me but how can you be “potentially 120%” less likely to have ID? Do they just pull numbers out of their backside because they think they sound impressive?
The last desperate punches of a bested man.
How is showing an ID racist..
I understand illegals but otherwise I just don’t get it.
If I didn’t know better, I’d think Obummer HATES Texas. Didn’t he just pull Millions out of a Houston Fundraiser? /s
That’s because Texas is crawling with illegals. I believe Kansas now requires a photo id. I haven’t voted recently, but it seems I’ve read that.
So nice of them to tell us the scope of the illegal alien vote. If I were Texas, I'd sample that population right away and provide the DOJ all the data it needs. Model it backwards for the consequences on prior elections. Then enforce the law and let them squeal.
“saying the state has failed to demonstrate that the the law is not discriminatory by design “
Rather than the state trying to prove a negative, shouldn’t the justice department be trying to prove that it IS discriminatory?
And, how can anyone survive without ID of any kind in the modern world? Seems impossible to me. You can’t cash a check. You can’t use a credit card. You can’t have a conversation with a police officer without being asked for ID. The idea that people don’t have ID and are actually citizens lacks credibility to me.
0bamao trampling the 9th and 10 amendments again!
I guess this means that Team Obama is banking on fraudulent voting to carry him into re-election in November.
The liberals have sure gotten away with a lot by using the race card. Now you have to prove that you’re NOT a racist. And you have to prove that a new law is NOT racist. That’s like boner proving he’s NOT going to cry.
Where does it say in the constitution that the president gets to decide which state laws are valid and which are not?
Texas should reply to Obama “We don’t care what you think”, and implement its law.
What can Obama do, other than stomping his girly feet in distress?
It’s time for Thoreau’s Civil Disobedience.
Two weeks ago, I was at a conventipon at one of the Disney hotels in Orlando. I had to show photo ID to get into the parking lot. I commented to the guard that most of my State Legislators don’t think I need this to vote, why should I have to show it to him just to park my car. Not to mention shoing it to board an airplane and get my hotel room, and rent the car.
It does discriminate against illegal Hispanic voters.
About 11 percent of Hispanic voters reportedly lack state-issued identification
Perry should shove it back and ask to show where its discrimination. What is the basis DOJs claim?
Go get an ID if they want to vote. Men and women paid the ultimate price to give and defend citizens the right to vote.
Who could’ve guessed this? (I think any of us...)
They tried the same thing in GA. We told them to kiss our grits. I just had to show ID to vote on March 6th.
