Radical Adminsitration Blocks Voter ID Law in Texas… It Might Be Racist

Is it November yet?
The Obama Administration blocked the new voter ID law in Texas, saying the law may be racist.
FOX News reported:

The Justice Department is objecting to a new photo ID law in Texas for voters, saying the state has failed to demonstrate that the the law is not discriminatory by design against Hispanic voters.

The department’s head of the civil rights division, Tom Perez, wrote a a six-page letter to Texas’ director of elections saying that Texas has not “sustained its burden” under Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act to show that the new law will not have a discriminatory effect on minority voters. About 11 percent of Hispanic voters reportedly lack state-issued identification.

Perez wrote that while the state says the new photo ID requirement is to “ensure electoral integrity and deter ineligible voters from voting” the state “did not include evidence of significant in-person voter impersonation not already addressed by the state’s existing laws.”

Perez added that the number of people lacking any personal ID or driver’s license issued by
the state ranges from from 603,892 to 795,955, but of that span, 29-38 percent of them are Hispanic.

“According to the state’s own data, a Hispanic registered voter is at least 46.5 percent, and potentially 120.0 percent, more likely than a non-Hispanic registered voter to lack this identification,” Perez wrote.

“Even using the data most favorable to the state … that disparity is statistically significant,” he said.

    = = = = = = =

    Is that because the “Hispanic registered voter” is more likely to *NOT* be a citizen, and possibly *NOT* even a legal resident? Inquiring minds want this followed up….

    They need illegal votes, dead people, double voting, Mickey mouse politics. What galls me is that the years of voting and the years of fraud and one judge, a liberal or whatever can deny ID’s they have been in our state and seem to be giving me some relief, but in other states I fear this election will be riveted with fraud.

    Just a real embarrassment for the Nation. Where is the Justice. Our founding fathers are rolling over in their graves for the umteeth time.

    Ummmm. I live in Texas, and when I go to Blockbuster I see no shortage of Hispanics renting movies there. Odd, considering that in order to open a Blockbuster account, I had to provide a photo I.D. AND A VALID CREDIT CARD. Is Blockbuster a racist group now? How about HEB that requires a photo I.D. when you pay for your groceries with a check? Or the fact that to apply for any social services in Texas, you must have a valid I.D.?

    Good luck with that goal, Mr. Perez. Perhaps you can show all those poor Hispanic voters in Texas without some form of I.D., i.e. driver’s licenses, state welfare cards, etc. that can all be tracked through state agencies. Getting an I.D. is Texas is hard only if you are an illegal.

    No voter fraud in Texas? Hell, you can go on YouTube and watch a woman tell how she mined votes for a Democrat in South Texas.

    My guess is that this law suit (along with the Democrats push to prevent Texans from voting in the GOP primaries until June, just 5 days before the TxGOP convention) is right up the King Street Patriots alley. The KSP has documentation of voter fraud that was massive in Shiela Jackson Lee’s district, along with districts in South Texas.

    Eric Holder, meet Katherine Englebright.

    The voting laws after 08 should have been their first clue and here we are another election of fraudulence and it is preposterous and unthinkable this is happening again.

    Disgusting. Voting laws must be changed but with Democrats in Washington and states taking marching orders I suppose here we are again, feeling we just can’t win.

  • 2klbofun

    Well, if you look at the law through the lens of Critical Race Theory, its obviously racist. Just ask Soledad.

    Hopefully, Perry will make them enforce it. Just continue business as usual. There is a proven 3 year history from this communist cabal of ignoring laws they do not want to enforce. Or openly violating the ones they can’t ignore. Gonna be a long, hot summer folks. All part of the plan to TRY and wear you down.

  • Therese

    I know for a fact that a woman from the Democrap party went into Retirement homes and
    forged signatures of people who were incapable of voting. I know this because I have a few friends who work at the Election Board. This crap goes on all over the Country.
    Also, You can begin voting 42 Days BEFORE the Nov. 6 Election.
    The Democraps lined up to vote Day after Day after Day after Day after Day after Day
    Leading up to the 2008 Election. It will be the same this year. Do Not convince yourselves that You are WAY Too Busy on Nov. 6 Please Vote. (Obummer out) !

    The irony here is most of the states that come under the VRA were because of administrations run by Dems at the time of the infractions.

    Holder also refuses to enforce Section 8 of the VRA which requires purging voter registration lists of deceased,moved or otherwise no longer valid registrations.

    If the Voter IF Law might be racist, then does it mean that Hispanics don’t have picture ID because they ‘might be’ illegal aliens and the Law would discriminate against illegal aliens? Because that is pretty much what they are saying. How come it isn’t racist against blacks or whites or anyone else? Why is it that blacks and whites can have photo ID, but Hispanics don’t? Crazy.

  • http://none tommy mc donnell

    i would bet that the majority of people in the united states are in favor of voter id. if the law requires everyone to have id it is not discriminatory. to say that is a racist lie. the only one that will be discriminated againist will be the frequent voter, the core of the democratic party vote.

    #3 Retire05,

    You must not be Mexican then. But I’ll bet if a Mexican stands up to the counter he says something or shows something and they go ahead and process the rental. The next time you’re in Blockbuster peer over and look at what it is that Mexican’s ARE showing to get the movie, that seems to require a lot more from you to do the same thing.

    I have no idea where Mr. Perez gets this “notion”, since that’s a word the left uses to describe the Constitution whenever they’re talking about our God given rights to protect our nation from “INVASION” from any enemy both foreign or DOMESTIC, this notion that illegal Mexican aliens deserve to vote in OUR country. What someone needs to tell Mr. Perez that as soon as he identify’s the illegals within the “hispanic” community and mark them where they cannot vote no matter what, then we’ll be glad to allow the American citizen’s who are of Mexican decent and have proper identification, to vote. We just don’t want criminals who have no rights in our country to be allowed to benefit from the rights that citizenship offers for all legal citizen’s of this country.

    Hey, Mr. Perez, why don’t you show us your proper identification so that we know that you are legal, and we’d like to know how many times you have to show your i.d. for your everyday things you have to prove who you are. Don’t you want things to be the way it is for you? Don’t you want things to be “fair” and “equal” just like things are for you? I think you’re the racist in this issue, Mr. Perez, not us who want I.D. voter laws in every state just for these kinds of situations where the left has taken advantage of for decades to CHEAT!!!! AND STEAL ELECTIONS!!!! when following the law or make a law that guarantees that our elections are fair and open.

    The Democrats need voter fraud to even come close to staying in power. Holder is a corrupt hack and the sooner he is out of office and in the slammer the better.

    Let’s recap:

    He allowed “his people” – the New Black Panther Party – to intimidate voters in 2008 by throwing out the charges.

    He allowed guns to be illegally shipped to Mexican drug cartels in direct violation of federal law and international law. He did so in order to create a pretext to trick America into supporting gun control.

    He decided to ORDER every public swimming pool, spa, even wading pools to retrofit and install expensive PERMANENT lifts by rewriting the ADA law.

    Calling him a “partisan hack” is an insult to every Chicago alderman that ever lived.

  • regularguy

    What this is, is the Justice Department trying to void and/or deny you and me OUR right to vote in an election with voter integrity. Where’s our class action lawsuit against the Justice Department for denying us our vote without it being voided by illegal voters, who cannot be burdened by having to produce a photo ID that’s required for hundreds of other transactions?

    “According to the state’s own data, a Hispanic registered voter is at least 46.5 percent, and potentially 120.0 percent, more likely than a non-Hispanic registered voter to lack this identification,” Perez wrote.

    This is absurd drivel. Since the registration process does not require a photo-id, statistics derived from those numbers are meaningless.

  • GP Fan

    I thought they had to prove it WAS racist in order to stop it. Now we have to prove a negative? Prove it’s NOT racist? Based on that, every law ever passed would have to be proven it’s not this, it doesn’t do that, it wont make this, it wont cause that, etc. This is not how our legal system and gov’t works! In order to stop it, you have to prove there is something wrong with it, not make the lawmakers prove there isn’t!

  • Finncrisp

    It is March, the general is not until November – are we saying no one can get a state ID over the next six months? How do they buy alcohol, get a prescription, or cash a check? This is reediculous.
    Voting and identification go together, there is no discrimination in having any individual identify who the heck they really are, really.

    Tactics to steal elections are what this is all about. Barry is a tool of the late Joe Stalin. Big government Marxists joined at the hip.
