TDP Statement on SCOTUS Decision
January 20th, 2012
Below is a statement from TDP spokesperson Anthony Gutierrez regarding the Supreme Court’s decision on redistricting:
“The Supreme Court did not strike down the interim maps. The issues they had pertained to the process by which the court arrived at new maps, not necessarily the maps themselves.
While it is not clear what the final districts will look like at this point, what is clear is that the state’s original maps have been found to be discriminatory in some way by every court which has examined them.
The state’s maps completely ignored the demographic realities of Texas. The Supreme Court did not approve the state’s maps and we don’t expect they ever will.”
