The Trump Justice Department is not challenging laws that perpetuate voter discrimination


from the article:

“The commission said in the report that at least 23 states have enacted “newly restrictive statewide voter laws” since the Shelby County v. Holder decision, with moves like closing polling places, cutting early voting, purging voter rolls and imposing voter ID laws.
It found that 61 lawsuits have been filed challenging states’ voting laws under Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act — which bans discriminatory election laws — but only four of those were filed by the Justice Department, and none since President Donald Trump took office. “
