On Tuesday, a federal appeals court temporarily reinstated Texas’ controversial voter ID law. As a result, more than 600,000 registered voters, mostly Black and Hispanic, may be disenfranchised and denied their right to vote in the upcoming midterm elections.
Roland Martin and the “NewsOne Now” Straight Talk panel (Daniella L’eger, Wilmer Leon and Stephanie Brown James) discuss how this decision may impact voters, what types of identification are valid and the GOP’s continuous efforts to suppress the Black vote.
Be sure to listen to “NewsOne Now” with Roland Martin, weekdays at 7 a.m. EST and watch at 9 a.m. EST on TV One.
