The Texas Voter ID Law was passed in 2011 in order to prevent voter fraud in Texas.

Since its passage, liberal rights groups have called it racist and have shopped around for judge after judge who have all upheld the law… until today when they found an Obama-appointed Federal Judge in Corpus Christi who threw the law out without ceremony.

Calling it an unconstitutional poll tax on minorities, the U.S. District Judge Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos of Corpus Christi threw out the law which Texas says is important to prevent voter fraud.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said he will appeal the ruling, calling it “outrageous.”

“Safeguarding the integrity of elections in Texas is essential to preserving our democracy,” he said.

In her ruling, Ramos dismissed arguments from Paxton and officials with the Trump administration’s Department of Justice who said the changes recently adopted by the Legislature were sufficient to protect voting rights.

She also declined to craft a new voter ID law.

“The court’s finding of discriminatory intent strongly favors a wholesale injunction against the enforcement of any vestige of the voter photo ID law,” Ramos wrote. “Second, the lack of evidence of in-person voter impersonation fraud in Texas belies any urgency for an independently fashioned remedy from this court at this time.”

What do you think about this law? Should it have stood? Or is a requirement to show ID at the poll an unfair requirement.
