Cervantes

Hoy es el día más hermoso de nuestra vida, querido Sancho; los obstáculos más grandes, nuestras propias indecisiones; nuestro enemigo más fuerte, el miedo al poderoso y a nosotros mismos; la cosa más fácil, equivocarnos; la más destructiva, la mentira y el egoísmo; la peor derrota, el desaliento; los defectos más peligrosos, la soberbia y el rencor; las sensaciones más gratas, la buena conciencia, el esfuerzo para ser mejores sin ser perfectos, y sobretodo, la disposición para hacer el bien y combatir la injusticia dondequiera que esté.

The Real Voter Fraud Is Texas’ ID Law


Credit Hanna Barczyk
For years, voter identification laws have been sold as a sensible antidote to fraud at the polls. Many people, including Supreme Court justices, have bought that fallacious line, even though in-person fraud is essentially nonexistent.
Now, slowly but surely, such laws are being revealed for the racially discriminatory, anti-voter schemes that they are.
On Wednesday, a federal appeals court panel unanimously agreed that Texas’ voter ID law had a discriminatory effect on black and Latino voters, and therefore violates the 1965 Voting Rights Act. It was the first time a federal appeals court had ruled against such a law. It was also a sign that the Voting Rights Act remains functional, despite the 2013 Supreme Court decision that cut out a key provision requiring federal oversight of jurisdictions, like Texas, with histories of racial discrimination.
The Texas law, passed in 2011 by a Republican-dominated Legislature, is one of the strictest in the nation. It requires voters to take a government-issued photo ID to the polling place. But not all IDs will do. Student IDs and even voter registration cards are not acceptable, while a permit to carry a concealed weapon is.
Last year, after a lengthy trial, a federal judge in Corpus Christi struck down the law, finding that more than 600,000 Texans — disproportionately poor, black and Latino — lacked the necessary ID and could be barred from voting. Compare that number with instances of voter fraud: Out of 20 million votes cast during the 10 years before the law was passed, there were two convictions for voter impersonation fraud.
Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos of Federal District Court ruled that the law violated several provisions of the Constitution, including the ban on poll taxes, because it forced registered voters to track down or pay for the necessary documents. She also ruled that it was passed with the intent to discriminate against black and Latino voters, who tend to vote Democratic. This was particularly important because only a finding of intentional discrimination opens the door to the reinstatement of federal supervision over Texas’ voting laws.
For decades, that supervision had been essential in blocking thousands of discriminatory measures — as it did Texas’ voter ID law — before they could harm voters. But the Supreme Court threw out the formula in 2013 that determined which states and localities needed permission to change their laws, saying it was outdated.
