Alvarado's Statement on the DOJ Response to TX House & Congressional Redistricting Plan  print page

by: Rep. Alvarado, Carol
09/19/2011

AUSTIN// State Representative Carol Alvarado responded to the preliminary court filing by U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) today regarding the Texas House & Congressional Redistricting maps:

"By not granting pre-clearance, the Department of Justice has come to the same conclusion that many of my colleagues and I reached months ago - that the maps blatantly ignored the realities of our population growth by diluting and diminishing the impact minority voters have on elections. With over 89% of Texas' growth being attributable to minority groups, the DOJ must ensure that every community has an equal opportunity to elect the candidates of their choice."

State Representative Carol Alvarado is a 2nd term and she sits on the House Redistricting Committee.
