State Legislatures Consider More Voter ID Law Proposals Since Sessions Did This

State legislatures have begun pushing voter identification proposals since Attorney General Jeff Sessions ordered the Justice Department to withdraw from its legal fight against Texas’s voter ID law.

The move by Sessions is a reversal of the previous administration’s DOJ six-year legal battle against the Texas law.

Officials from the Justice Department contacted liberal activist groups on board with the lawsuit against Texas, including the Brennan Center for Justice, the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), the NAACP, and the NAACP Legal Defense Fund about the change in policy at the DOJ, Salon reported.

You know what else you need to prove your identification to participate in? Welfare benefits. The only reason to oppose voter ID laws is to continue to allow fraud.
