“Mexican American Civil Rights in Texas”

This new volume, edited by Robert Brischetto and J. Richard Avena, is of particular interest given the DOJ’s new Section 2 suit against Texas alleging racial vote dilution. Jose Roberto Juarez, Jr.’s contribution, “Mexican American Voting Rights in Texas,” reviews Texas voting rights litigation over the past half century. Henry Flores discusses evidence of intentional discrimination in “Voter Discrimination in Texas.” Kevin Morris and Myrna Perez of the Brennan Center show evidence of voter suppression in “Barriers to the Ballot Box in Texas.”
