Federal appeals court orders changes to Texas voter ID law | Fox News

According to the US Constitution, one MUST be a US Citizen to vote....Texas has offered 7 different ways for legal ID to be obtained and the state has offered to absorb the costs.
STILL....the Obama administration took the unusual step of having the Department of Justice intervene in a matter the state should have handled.

What Democrats are doing is ensuring that the Constitution does not get in the way of their stealing elections from American citizens.

This is an outrage and Americans should be ashamed to sit back and do nothing as this obvious ploy to destroy our nation unfolds.

The GOP could have been productive in stopping this sort of thing... they nominated Trump instead. Who gives a **** anymore?

Awwww...gee, does it hurt? You do know that this decision was made in the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals - the most conservative of all the circuits nationwide.

So you gotta ask yourself - since it was the most conservative of all the courts of appeals, is there even the slightest possibility that maybe, just maybe Texas' law WAS unconstitutional, and DID create an undue burden on the voters, hm?

The article clearly says 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

This has nothing to do with Trump. It is a cancer that is owned by Democrats / Progressives and has been a long time in the making.

Ah. So I was wrong, stupidly wrong, about which Circuit Court of Appeals it was. Thanks for correcting me - I do appreciate it.

That said, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals is still considered a conservative court. For example:

National advocacy groups sometimes target certain federal circuits with track records favorable to their positions in a process called “forum shopping,” Pidot said. Groups funding lawsuits for liberal causes are more likely to file in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals based in San Francisco, while conservative groups are more inclined to take their business to the more conservative 5th Circuit Court of Appeals encompassing Texas, Mississippi and Louisiana, he said.

And where would the judges for that circuit be drawn from? Probably Texas, Mississippi, and Louisiana...which means they're probably going to be conservative.

Voter ID laws were meant to help Republicans steal elections because that's the only way they can win.
