CONYERS Condemns Trump DOJ Support of Regressive Voter ID Laws In Texas

Washington, Dc – House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member John Conyers, Jr. (D-MI) today released the following statement after the Department of Justice reversed its previous stance and now supports Texas officials’ attempts to target minority voters:

Dean of the U.S. House
of Representatives
John Conyers, Jr.
“With this decision, the Trump administration has officially embarked on a mission of voter suppression and proven the critics of Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ nomination to head the Department of Justice correct.  There is no question that defenders of the right to vote are on notice that we must be vigilant in protecting the civil rights of all Americans and that every vote counts.  Ultimately, this question will wind up in the Supreme Court, making the nomination and confirmation process immediately critical to the voting rights of the minority community and every voter.  The legal battle for 2018 has begun.”
