Well -- antagonized.
This administration occasionally finds that very easy to antagonize but -- let's go through a few things the Justice Department said -- report.
The Justice Department claiming the data from Texas showed that almost -- of -- percent of Hispanic voters just over 300000.
Do not have a valid driver's license or state issued ID card.
In the plans to mitigate the concerns are incomplete.
First -- how to they know that a and B.
What do you say it through the part about -- being incomplete.
Rival -- three things one at a they don't know that -- you recall from what you read from hope and Roddy.
Our secretary of state earlier Texas really don't have any -- data support this because we don't keep.
Race based information on who does and who doesn't have a driver's license so is content educated guesswork.
Being we wanna make sure that everyone has access -- driver's license C.
-- -- even according to the numbers the DOJ came up with.
The difference between the Hispanic voters and that Anglo voters is only five percentage points different.
And so it's roughly the same.
A but to the extent that no one has access -- know what has a driver's lessons right now taxes is going to ensure that you're gonna have a photo ID without you having to pay for -- So there is no obstacle to someone getting a photo ID in order to be what are they have -- provide but it is what do they have to provide to get that photo ID.
Well that day did did did various different things but one thing they can provide it is a birth certificate.
Of -- actually other different kinds of information they can provide an order get that photo ID.
The Texas has constructed this -- and away.
That anyone can gain access to a photo ID in order to go vote.
Without having to pay anything out of your own pocket.
What is -- what should we take away from this -- back what is going on -- this Justice Department.
And its assault on the states the tenth amendment I mean this is this is a runaway train.
-- -- full assault on on the Federalist system.
Yeah the way I would look at it -- is let's step back and look at what the Obama Justice Department has done since they took office in 2009.
Right after they took office.
They dropped a case that was already won a slam dunk voting rights case against the new Black Panther Party which had engaged in voter intimidation Philadelphia.
They drop that case and yet now they're bringing a case against Texas based on flimsy statistics based on legal theories that the Supreme Court has already rejected.
So you -- Justice Department that.
Rejects the slam dunk but now it's trying -- behind the back half court shot against Texas that tells me that they are driven not by the law.
But they are driven by pure politics in the Obama Justice Department.
And as someone who used to work in the bush Justice Department I find that offensive and really troubling.
Because the Justice Department is supposed to be above politics and this Justice Department seems to be driven purely by politics are almost purely by politics.
The report branch of discretion should we're out of time but I'm running -- -- on the last attorney general Abbott secretary -- throwback.
Have you ever seen a more politicized.
US Justice Department -- this.
-- we -- not only got proof in the putting because we have twenty lawsuits against the Obama administration in just the last two years baseball what we believed to be legal over -- under that administration.
-- -- They are taking extraordinary actions they're taking actions like the one today -- Texas.
They're suing states like Arizona and Alabama that are trying to help the federal government enforce federal laws in immigration.
These are completely unprecedented things that are happening in these months and I think -- -- American people recognize that this is not the way a US Justice Department is supposed to be operated.
And of course the the anti illegal immigration law is before the Supreme Court.
As is the overreach of the Environmental Protection Agency and -- yes.
The individual mandate of obamacare.
And now being reviewed as well but the Supreme Court.
I don't know if that's unprecedented but it seems that it's going to be very close -- it's not.
Greg -- -- back thank you so much don't want.
