discriminates against black illegals and Hispanic illegals.

Since they are illegal and can't vote, there is no discrimination.

Please tell me again just WHY black and hispanic citizens can’t get an ID? Are there documented cases of legitimate claims that PROVE some kind of discrimination?

If it was my state (and I was Governor), I'd tell Washington to pound sand, instruct the pols to demand ID or no vote, and let the jitterbugging start.

We f### around too much accepting illegal or unconstitutional rulings in the hope of getting it straightened out later, and I hate t'tell ya' ....

but, later never comes.

We either believe this is the last election or it isn't.

If we want to take a chance and hope zero will not have done away with anything called a legitimate election after another four years of him ... I think you're nuts. This IS our last chance to save America from the book burners ... already our kids have no clue ... already too many 'adults' honestly believe America is wrong .. and have no clue.

The clock has wound done months ago, the alarm is going off and hitting the snooze button only prolongs the calm before the storm.

May as well get up, get out of bed and ... um ... go to work.

...a controversial Texas voter identification law...

It's only "controversial" for those who must violate voting laws to win elections.

Why can other states have voter ID laws, but Texas can’t?

I’m sure Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott is taking this and the re-districting ruling to the US Supreme Court.

Hopefully, SC Justice Roberts will be on his meds the day Abbott argues before the court and rule in favor of Texas.

How close is the language in comparison to Indiana’s Voter ID law?

PA was smart and cribbed their law after it. Hopefully Texas did the same thing.

There’s no obstacle to blacks and hispanics getting IDs.

It’s just the same old, tired, but still effective insinuation of racism to get your opponent to back down, or to justify some inherently unlawful policy like affirmative action.

Texas is one of many southern states that is under the post-bellum voter rights act that allows the feds to interfere with their elections.

The other states aren’t.

Why can’t people who do not have a driver license get a state photo id?

The story has been corrected to be about “redistricting maps” instead of “Voter ID”.

Newt was right. Time to clean out the corruption and liberal judges from all the courts from local to federal. This court interfered with a State right to control illegal voters.
