Skip to comments.Hispanic group, NAACP join Voter ID lawsuit
Posted on 09/17/2013 9:47:06 PM PDT by Tailgunner Joe
The Mexican American Legislative Caucus and the Texas NAACP filed a lawsuit Tuesday to overturn the states Voter ID law, joining the Justice Department in fighting the law. ....
As our states top legal official, Attorney General Abbott should be working with minority communities, not against us, to ensure that the voting process is straightforward and non-partisan, said Rep. Trey Martinez Fischer, the San Antonio Democrat who chairs the Mexican American Legislative Caucus. ....
As we all know, Texas has a voter identification law that has already been ruled to be discriminatory by a bipartisan three-judge panel in Washington, D.C., said Gary Bledsoe, president of the NAACP Texas State Conference. It is only by a technicality that the law may now be implemented.
I thought the Texas voter ID law was identical to one in a state in the Midwest that had been approved by SCOTUS?
Of course they are. They are the most likely to commit voter fraud.
All law abiding citizens should start showing up to the voting booth and show their ID anyway.
The Ku Klux Klanning against White folks continues....what this gangbanging from racist groups are
But since the states have never amended the Constitution to expressly protect the so-called right to vote without having to first present a valid photo ID, the states are free to prohibit voters from voting on that basis imo.
I don’t know any adult who doesn’t have a photo i.d.
Are they going to produce someone who as an adult is unable to get a photo i.d.???
“Discrimates” on the basis of degree of difficulty plus effort to satisfy the requirements, is the leftists’ claim.
Pales in sharp contrast from how much GREATER will be the demands of paperwork and satisfying the IRS under ObamaCare.
In the same breath, the left would have people believe that ObamaCare is within reach, but the easier task of getting a voter ID is allegedly a mountain too high?!
Zero would have lost in 2012 with national Voter ID law in force. I lived in Chicago for 37 years and I know all about voter fraud there. The democRATS will fight voter ID tooth and nail.
Up until the 1980s....I would say that only sixty percent of the US population had a photo ID of some type. The arrival of digital equipment, more state funds for ID hardware, and tens of thousands of regulation which now requires an ID....has changed things.
I’d take a humble guess that across the entire US today...there’s probably around 250,000 US citizens (not aliens), who probably have no photo ID at all. Good statistics....considering three hundred million. The chief cause? Folks in permanent facilities (mental or old folks homes), folks who live in primitive surroundings, and folks who live in the inner cities (like Memphis, Atlanta, etc) and they never ever leave their six-square block area.
Most states would readily agree to provide a state license-type ID for free....if you meant the right conditions.
So then you come to modern society. We are required to show an ID now when picking up prescription drugs, registering a car, cashing a check, buying booze, and probably forty other regular actions. You have no choice. You even need the ID now in most states to get your marriage license.
These groups (the Hispanic groups, and the NAACP)....would have a valid case in 1980. They could make this simple and the court would readily agree. Time has moved on. We live in a different age, and have made mandatory ID a requirement for a vast number of actions. To pretend we are still in the 1980s....kinda identifies your movement as “dinosaur-like”.
If I stood up in the court to face them and the judge....I’d make this awful simple. Either mandatory ID is stupid for the forty-odd actions we already require it, and thus we get rid of it entirely. Or, admit that we’ve already crossed one bridge, burnt it down....and have no choices left but to agree to an ID society. It’s a simple argument, if you think about it.
There has been an all out push in Texas to allow people to easily get a picture ID - but they have to get off of their butts and do it cause DPS isn’t going door to door.
Some people would complain if they weren’t hung with a new rope.
and folks who live in the inner cities (like Memphis, Atlanta, etc) and they never ever leave their six-square block area.
Being from Memphis, I know people who live in the ‘hood and they have photo i.d. Heck I know people who’ve been to prison and they have photo i.d.. too.
The NAACP is just pissed that its going to take more effort to commit voter fraud now.
You need a photo ID to enter a court building.
Or Cough medicine.
Waste of time by the Obamabot nutcases!!! All states should have voter ID laws, period!!! And alll voters should be allowed to vote only on Election Day. Absentee ballots should be sent to only those voters that prove that they will not be available to vote on Election Day for bonafide, legal, hardship reasons!! Stop voter fraud....now!!!!
Find it strange when the excuse is being given that while the government knows whats going on in 300 million citizens lives but because the illegals are not citizens and in “the shadows” according to Florida’s Senator Rubio the US doesn’t know who they are or where they’re comming from so we must make them citizens..
THE QUESTION IS SENATORS HOW COULD YOU PASS A 1200 PAGE BILL YOU HAVEN’T READ... THAT HAS A FINE OF $5000 FOR ANY EMPLOYER WHO HIRES A CITIZEN OVER AN ILLEGAL ...WHY ARE YOU SO SET ON IMPORTING LOW WAGE LABORERS MAINLY FROM ONE COUNTRY WHICH TAKE UP JOBS OUR YOUTH AND ESPECIALLY BLACKS COULD BE PERFORMING ?
KNOWING THIS HOW CAN YOU HOUSE MEMBERS PASS ANY KIND OF LEGISLATION THAT MAY HAVE THAT AND AN UNSECURED BORDER COMMING OUT OF “CONFERENCE”....???HOW ABOUT REPRESENTING THE INTERESTS OF YOUR CONSTITUENTS AND THE COUNTRY NOT YOUR POLITICAL PARTY ?
FR’s ; are urged to visit their respective Congressional Representatives and let them know their feelings ... WHEN IT COMES TO AMNESTY
THIS IS THE MEXICAN PART NO ONE DARES MENTION
If you agree with the above and the following please don’t let it lay here in FR-land. Pass it on to to your favorite talk show host and to your US legislators. PUSH THE HASTERT RULE.
ONE NATIONALITY AMNESTY SKEWS QUOTAS. HURTS OTHERS FROM SOUTH AMERICA, AND SKILLED LABOR QUOTAS FROM OTHER NATIONS ...WORSE YET OFFERING AMNESTY FOR NATIONALS FROM A COUNTRY THAT HAS CLAIMS ON OUR NATIONAL TERRITORY THAT COULD AND HAS TURNED INTO PROBLEMS FOR BORDER STATES CLAIMED BY MEXICO .
In that May 3rd speech Obama gave before the Mexican Anthropological Museum in which he blamed America for the violence in Mexico I believe he went even futhur. Theres a inference but never referenced by name to the Gasden purchase and border settlements US made with Mexico where Obama hinted he seems to side with the Mexican claims. Would those in attendence share that view is a question that should be asked, because I believe they would,.he does.
SOLVING THE ‘LATINO” PROBLEM A MYTH HISPANIC IS NOT A RACE BUT A POLITICAL LINGUISTIC CONTRIVANCE ...don’t fall into the hyphenated Americans trap created by the hyphenated political party ...The DEMO-COMS
The Mexicans have been getting most favorable treatment above the rest of our neighbors both north and south. Theyre permitted to cross our borders and enter illegally and are allowed access to rights of citizenship (with the exception of voting which if the democrat party regains control over the House will happen) other nationals entering this country dont get.. Worse yet the Obama government has been working hand in glove with Mexican movements such as LaRaza supporting the Mexican claims which are also supporting “Amnesty”.
Also by allowing Mexicans to do this any quota ration for immigration from other south and central American countrys are taken up by Mexicans while that country is laying claim to a large chunk of our sovereign territory is a recipe for later serious problems which are happening now.
ARE MEXICAN ILLEGALS SQUATTERS PERPETUATING THE MEXICAN CLAIMS ?
We are already seeing the result of this in certain areas claimed by the Mexicans. Their national flag (standard) gets displayed over ours. Where there is a controlling number of Mexican nationals (illegals). Its displayed over certain institutions particularly schools accompanied by riots and disturbances. Blacks are threatend by Mexicans in certain sections of citys in those areas. Were courting trouble by not placing a value on our sovereignty and our citizenship.
MOST COINS OF THE REALM HAVE TWO FACES WHAT ABOUT HOW ARE AMERICAN CITIZENS LIVING IN MEXICO BEING TREATED ?
Worse yet if a US citizen goes into Mexico never mind illegaly but legally. Theyll get 2nd class treatment. Land ownership in title is prohibited period. And there are a slew of regulations they must comply with. Which doesnt apply to a citizen of Mexico
THE SOLUTION ASSERT OUR SOVEREIGNTY AND TALK RECIPROCITY .
By not insisting on reciprocity particularly on those who have entered this country illegally were offering no incentive for assimilation and were not easing the burden for our fellow citizens who for what ever reason decided to live in Mexico.
ENOUGH OF THE ONE WORLD SOCIALISM ...BRING BACK SOVEREIGNTY AND SANITY TO OUR COUNTRY .....BRING BACK BELIEF IN GOD ...THIS GOVERNMENT OUT OUR FACE..... OUR RELIGIONS..... AND OUR BEDROOMS..
Same for driving, air travel, liquor purchase, check cashing, motel room, etc. etc. etc.
OK UNCLE!! I give up!! You blacks and Hispanics have CONVINCED me that you are just TOO STUPID to know how to get an ID like White people do......I’m sure this makes you PROUD to be seen as TOO Helpless and Hopeless to make your way thru life.
Too damn much logic, won't work with a liberal.
Someone replied the easiest way to fix the ID card, is to put the person’s photo on the EBT cards.
Ok....You don’t need a photo ID to vote, but for security purposes you need one to enter the building.
