Our country is gone. Let's just let the Chinese vote instead of Americans. I mean seriously who cares right?

ASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court has unanimously upheld a Texas law that counts everyone, not just eligible voters, in deciding how to draw electoral districts. The justices turned back a challenge Monday that could have dramatically altered political district boundaries and disproportionately affected the nation’s growing Latino population


We won't be able to hold onto this country if anyone can come vote weather they are citizens or not.

I'm afraid for our future. I don't think passive resistance will work anymore it's time to kick it up a notch.

You didn't properly read what is going on did you? Keep your pants on. That ruling isn't giving illegals the right to vote. it has to do with how the districts are defined based on population levels in them. Heck the text you quoted SAYS this. Yet you still lied with the thread title and are acting like it is happening with your response to the article.

Talk about a click bait thread...

I don't see how drawing electoral districts according to the actual population of an area, as opposed to the number of registered voters in a district, leads to illegal immigrants being able to vote.

Why are we counting them if this isn't a move towards voting?

I don't know if your thread title is intentional hyperbole or if you really didn't understand the article.

The decision does not give illegal aliens the right to vote. Anymore than it gives children the right to vote. It merely counts everyone in determining the size of congressional districts.

This debate goes back hundreds of years. It led to the infamous 3/5ths compromise in the Constitution.

So districts aren't partisan biased towards a partisan direction that isn't representative of the people that live there. By the way, this also applies to felons, people not registered to vote, children, and other people who don't vote. Not just immigrants. Though you spinning it to apply solely to illegals is rather sensationalist.

Civil rights groups said forcing states to change their method of constructing districts would have damaged Latino political influence.


Did you read the article?

Why do they have political influence?

Ya where do you get that illegals can now vote? There are other factors that makes them not eligible to vote besides being illegal.

just wait lol its going to get worse after the GOP gives the nom to Cruz, who can't seem to get ppl to vote for him in the primaries, instead of the popular vote of Trump. Just wait till that anger surfaces, they haven't seen the full implications from everything that's happened this year surface yet. People are not forgetting like they used to.

The biggest problem with this country is that most people don't know how to comprehend a story.

I think the op needs to take a break from the news or so called news for a bit and spend some time camping.

What is giving you the idea that illegals will soon get to vote? Did you intend to reference a different article/link, maybe? I don't see anything about foreign nationals somehow being allowed to vote in U.S. political elections. Maybe you're thinking of the MLB All-Star balloting?

It's pretty clear what's going on.

You're thread title and conclusion from this ruling is flawed.

Also, we still have the Constitution, which notes multiple times in its language about voting (including the amendments) that you must be a citizen to vote.

I feel like your alarmist way of viewing this topic is clouding your judgment.

You're right. It's clear that you missed the mark on this article and your pride is preventing you from admitting it despite every other poster coming into the thread and telling you that you read the article wrong.

Because depending on population they get more or less electors in the electoral college. Still doesn't give them the right to vote.
