Federal Court Sides With Texas – Tosses Injunction by Liberal Judge to Block Voter ID Law
Obama-appointed Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos struck down the Texas voter ID law in August that requires ID’s to vote. Judge Ramos believes it is racist to believe blacks and Hispanics are able to fill out paperwork and purchase an ID card.
This is the second time Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos blocked the Texas Voter ID law. In October 2014 Judge Ramos voided the Texas photo ID law just weeks before the November election calling it a poll tax.
The law was then softened for the 2016 election.
Earlier this year the Trump-Sessions DOJ asked a federal court to dismiss the department’s earlier claim that the ID law was enacted with the intention of discriminating against minority voters.
Americans need ID cards to function successfully in society.
But Democrats hate voter ID laws – which should tell you something.
On Tuesday a US federal appeals court voted 2-1 and stayed an injunction that will allow Texas to use the voter ID measure.
FOX News reported:
Texas Republicans won a minor victory Tuesday in their battle to implement a voter identification law.
By a 2-1 vote, a federal appeals court panel in New Orleans stayed a permanent injunction to throw out the law, which requires voters to present an accepted photo ID card.
A previous order by U.S. District Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos allowed those without an accepted ID to vote by signing a sworn declaration stating they have a reasonable impediment to obtaining one.
The injunction will allow Texas to use a revised voter ID measure known as Senate Bill 5 (SB 5) for this November’s elections.
