Ted Cruz responds to judges bad decision on voter ID
Yesterday's decision to strike down Texas' commonsense Voter ID law undermines the rule of law and frustrates Texas’s responsibility to preserve the integrity of its elections.This looks like another bad faith example by the left to thwart voter integrity and facilitate Democrat cheating.
As the Supreme Court explained in Crawford v Marion County, "flagrant examples of [voter] fraud . . . have been documented throughout this Nation’s history by respected historians and journalists [and] demonstrate that not only is the risk of voter fraud real but that it could affect the outcome of a close election."
Voter fraud diminishes confidence in our democratic process, and minority voters are far too frequently the victims of that fraud. The Voter ID law is a commonsense protection to safeguard the rights of every Texan and to prevent illegal voter fraud.
The district judge's opinion to the contrary violates Supreme Court precedent, and I trust that the Fifth Circuit will reverse it on appeal.
