Whatever happened to “States’ Rights?”
“He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public Good.”
that the measure may disproportionately harm Hispanics
No evidence, no proof...just “may”.
Proper response is “scru u”.
They need id’s to get welfare and the other freebies from the taxpayers...somehow they have id for that....
Of course it’s biased ... against people who aren’t entitled to vote.
While I’m not a Perry fan, he would get lotsa points for treating Obama/Holder like a 2YO with a tantrum, tell them “NO!”, with ho explaination, enforce it FULLY and let the cards fall where they may with the voters.
If you are a US citizen and qualified to vote you have a TX driver’s license or some other form of official ID such as SS card etc. If you don’t have that ID you are probably an illegal alien. The DOJ knows this as well.
Illegal alien = Democratic voter
“disproportionately harm Hispanics”
Menaing the law would prevent Mexican illegal aliens form voting.
I hate it when the feds mess with Texas.
The U.S. Justice Department is using its power under the Voting Rights Act to halt the Texas law, saying in a letter to the state today that the measure may disproportionately harm Hispanics.
Is the Federal Government claiming that Hispanics are incompetent? That they lack the knowledge or abilities needed to acquire the proper ID?
Are they claiming that Hispanics don’t drive, don’t work, don’t buy houses, don’t rent apartments and hundreds of other daily activities that require photo ID?
It won’t harm Hispanics, only illegals.
This has been the Obama plan all along for re-election: increase the number of illegals registered to vote and go all-out pandering to them. Tipping point has arrived.
How does it “harm” hispanics to show an I.D., you vile POS race monger Holder?
Congress passed a 25-year extension of the voting rights act, signed into law by George W. Bush in 2006. That means, unless repealed, this monstrosity will be around until 2031, and radical jackwagons like Eric Holder can set aside redistricting plans, voter ID requirements, and just about anything else they want to by declaring it might dilute minority rights.
Not to worry, though—by 2030 whites may be a minority and then could have 1 year to claim discrimnation under the law before congress would let it expire as no longer needed.
This makes no sense since the courts have already upheld the other states with voter ID laws.
Sorry Obama. Ain’t no amount of voter fraud in the world gonna win you Texas...
Maybe there needs to be men in black leather jackets holding billy clubs standing at each voting location ... Holder doesn’t seem to have a problem with that and I figure it would cut way down on the fraud.
It’s time the rubber meet the road. Every county sheriff should enforce voter ID at each poling place anyway. In places where a lefty sheriff won’t do it then send in the Rangers. Let Obama deal with that.
