Justice Department Sues Texas Over Redistricting

The Justice Department sues Texas over its redistricting proposal.

The Hill reports:

Attorney General Merrick Garland said the department assessed Texas’s new redistricting plans and “determined that they include districts that violate the Voting Rights Act.”

“The department’s career voting law experts have assessed Texas’s new redistricting plans and determined that they include districts that violate the Voting Rights Act,” Attorney General Merrick Garland said at a press conference announcing the lawsuit.

The new legal challenge comes after Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) in October signed into law a new congressional map that independent analysts say gives Republicans an unfair partisan advantage.

“Our complaint today alleges that the redistricting plans approved by the Texas state legislature and signed into law by the governor will deny black and Latino voters an equal opportunity to participate in the voting process and to elect representatives of their choice in violation of the Voting Rights Act,” said Associate Attorney General Vanita Gupta. “Our complaint also alleges that several of those districts were drawn with discriminatory intent.”

Republicans have blasted Merrick for the lawsuit claiming he only goes after red states while giving blue states a free pass for the same allegations.

I find that a stretch, as Texas wouldn’t do anything to prevent Lawful Citizens from voting.

All I know, is we do need to give Mitch McConnell credit for keeping Garland off the SCOTUS bench.

More crxp from a Department of Justice that is too liberal and owned by the Democrats! The same Department of Justice who labeled parents who deeply cared about their children’s education and questioned Boards of Education about the garbage being taught in schools “Domestic Terrorists.” Nothing good has come out of the Washington DC Swamp ever! And Washington has done nothing for Texas, couldn’t be bothered to help with the War against Mexico! Remember the Alamo!! Texas needs nothing from inept, incompetent, Biden or Garland!

You know nothing, but how to lie. Trump was no longer President, when Biden nominated Garland to be his Attorney General. So he couldn’t even fire him, let alone arrest him, as Garland was a sitting Judge, when Trump was President.

If Trump’s DOJ failed to clean out the swamp while he was President, you can blame Jeff Sessions (hands off AG), and William Barr (who could not see election fraud in 2020 elections, staring him in the face.

When the DOJ becomes the political arm of any political party or issue involving “Red or Blue ” States it may be time for the majority of citizens ( voters ) start a process to remove their State from the entity called The United States and form their own Nation under the guidelines of the Constitution and rules of our Founding Fathers .>> Open borders ,killing & funding the lives of babies .,imputing vat laws and regulations under “what authority ” ,Foreign Policy, destruction of our national freedom related to energy AND these are just a few of the items in which we are not onboard with…>Words & Votes are not going to change the direction of our Nation >>>

Are they looking into states that are run by Socialist/Democrats, who are also gerrymandering their districts to eliminate members of the GOP? Like Ohio and Colorado? Whoever is the governor at the time of redistricting, happens every ten years, depending on what party is in a majority, they normally change districting to favor their desired outcome.

Gerrymandering has always been about drawing Congressional districts as to give the party controlling a state the political advantage and has been done by Democrats for years. But now they lost control of the majority of states so NOW what they had been doing and still do in states they control is racist and violates voting rights according to them and they’ll shop for leftist judges that will agree with them.
