The Justice Department’s civil rights division shot down new voter ID law requirement for voters in Texas because many Hispanic voters lack state-issued identification. A similar edict from the Justice Department was leveled against South Carolina.
When I saw the doctor yesterday to be treated for a sinus infection, I had to show my driver’s license and insurance card. Two days ago, the police set up a road block to check proof of insurance and a valid driver’s license. I wonder if the Hispanics didn’t have to stop to show whether they had a license. (Of course, I’m not in favor of random ID checks. I only mention this to make a point.)
Early last month I flew to Las Vegas for a speaking engagement. I had to show my ID two times before I could board the plane. When I checked into the hotel, I was asked for my ID and a valid credit card. While in Las Vegas, I set up two business bank accounts. They wanted a whole lot of IDs. Last week I went to a different bank branch to cash a check, and the teller asked for my ID and wrote my license number on the check.
Here’s a convenient list of where you will need an ID:
- Donating Blood
- Gun Shop
- Cashing a Check
- Adoption Agency
- Social Security Office
- Pawn Shops
- Using a Credit Card
- Union Elections
Here’s where you won’t need an ID in Texas and South Carolina:
- Voting Booth
Are we to conclude that these ID-less Hispanics don’t ever need to show identification for anything? One would let people vote in elections who may not be citizens? We need a voter ID law to keep people who have no stake in America from voting.
Here’s what this is all about. Democrats know that Hispanics generally vote Democrat, especially Hispanics that are in the United States illegally. Of course, they don’t have valid IDs, so they would be denied voting rights. This would dilute the voting pool for Democrats. It’s that simple.
