Latinos fair better with judges' redistricting maps
That's no surprise. republicans don't believe in Democracy, just holding onto power. Why else would they disenfranchise voters with repressed voter drivers and the odious voter id laws? Why else slice and dice Democrats out of existence?
The new maps do better than the republicans.A new Texas House map drawn by federal judges Orlando Garcia and Xavier Rodriguez in San Antonio creates a new, additional, open seat in the Ro Grande Valley.
The new seat, known as District 35, includes the western Hidalgo County cities of La Joya, Penitas and Sullivan City, the rural north of Hidalgo County and the Delta towns of Edcouch and La Villa. It also includes the northwestern part of Cameron County, including half of Harlingen, and all of La Feria, Santa Rosa, Combes and Primera.
Fortunately, the Voting Rights Act saved the day. A latino voting republican is like a chicken supporting Colonel Sanders.
