“By what authority do they “block” this law? This is a state issue.
The Voting Rights Act via the Fourteenth Amendment.”

Section 5 of the “voting rights act” which spells out particular states for discriminatory laws to be applied is in blaten violation of not only the 14th ammedments EQUAL protection clause its a violation of the Federal constitutions Equal Standing clause.

I don’t know what the democrats of the 1960’s were thinking you would think that if they were going to install a repressive mandate the least they could do is apply it equally to all the State. But instead they make it clear in this lawless act that some states are “less equal” than others.

That concept in itself is absolutism repugnant to the idea of a free republican union. But I guess their idea of the “united states” post Lincoln was that of a lawless(boundless) empire not a republican union at all.

As a Texan I find this discrimination extremely insulting.

The case is insulting. The authority is firmly grounded in the law I cited, whatever you think of its legitimacy. Certainly the ratification process of the 14th was an abomination.
