Statement on Redistricting

Today Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito, acting on his own and without referral to the full Court or awaiting a response from any of the Plaintiffs, issued a stay in the Texas redistricting case.  Lone Star Project Director Matt Angle released the following statement:

“The evidence of discriminatory effect and intent in the Texas redistricting case is overwhelming. Any fair review by the Supreme Court should result in the San Antonio District Court’s decision being upheld. If the discrimination that has occurred in Texas is not turned back, it will spread across the entire country. Greg Abbott and Texas Republicans are the point of the spear for discrimination, vote suppression and violations of basic voting rights."
