The Source: Voter Suppression In Texas?
The Department of Justice has joined forces with the Mexican American Legal Defense Fund in the fight against the GOP-drawn voting maps. It has also announced that it will challenge the state's voter ID law in a separate case.
We speak with University of the Incarnate Word Professor Gary Keith, who wrote the book "Rotten Boroughs, Political Thickets, and Legislative Donnybrooks: Redistricting in Texas," about the fight to redistrict in Texas.
We also check in on the case with state Rep. Trey Martinez Fischer, who is the chair of the Mexican American Legislative Caucus in the Texas House of Representatives.
