Atlanta Black Star: Federal Judge Strikes Down Texas’ Voter ID Law — Again — for Being Discriminatory
“Today’s ruling is a crucial step in the six-year journey toward justice for Texas voters since this restrictive voter ID law was passed,” Danielle Lang, deputy director of voting rights at the Campaign Legal Center, which represented disenfranchised voters in the case, said in a statement.
“Judge Ramos was absolutely correct in her judgment that this law was designed to harm minority voters and cannot stand,” Lang added. “SB 14 was expertly crafted to harm minority voters in order to minimize their voice just as their political power was growing. Legislators must respond to their electorate, not silence their voters.”
