Abbott says Democrats discriminate against Hispanic voters

"What bothers me is the fact that Democrats use redistricting laws to discriminate against Hispanics," Abbott responded. "I'll say that again. Democrats are discriminating against Hispanics, because Republicans had elected [state Rep.] John Garza, [state Rep.] Raul Torres, [U.S. Rep.] Quico Canseco and other Hispanics across the State of Texas." 
"Because the Democrats wanted to redraw those lines, they got the courts to draw the lines in a way that pushed out Hispanic Republicans, therefore interrupting the connection that Republicans had already begun to make with the Hispanic community," said Abbott.
Democrats were trying to create Democrat districts instead of Hispanic districts.  The recent Supreme Court case will make it harder for them to get away with such abuses in the future.
