It didn’t take long for U.S. Senator Ted Cruz
(R-TX) respond to the Department of Justice’s decision to sue Texas over its Voter ID laws. Thursday afternoon, he fired off the following statement reminding Holder that the vast majority of Americans support voter ID laws:
Today’s decision by the U.S. Department of Justice to sue Texas is, sadly, only the latest manifestation of the DOJ’s increasing politicization under this Administration. The U.S. Supreme Court has expressly held that voter ID laws are constitutional, and DOJ’s decision today to attack Texas’ voter ID program is contrary to law.
Americans overwhelmingly support voter ID laws because they understand that voter fraud weakens our democracy, and unfortunately it is often minority voters who are the victims of that fraud. The Department of Justice should not be working to undermine the integrity of our elections.
