Statement in Support of Trump’s Decision Ending Texas Voter ID Opposition

Published On: February 27th, 2017

(ALEXANDRIA, VA.) – February 27, 2017: The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) today celebrated the Trump Administration’s decision to end the federal government’s opposition to Texas’ photo voter identification law.

“Texans are one step closer to having a common-sense voter protection that has been demanded for years,” PILF President and General Counsel J. Christian Adams said. “Since the Obama Administration’s initial filing, the federal government’s position has only grown weaker. The Texas Legislature is on its way to implementing the adjustments called for by the 5th Circuit to help voters in need, while the doomsday scenarios pitched by voter ID foes have proven to be a farce. We are seeing early reminders of what a Justice Department looks like when it drops the ideological pet projects and follows the law.”

Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) is a 501(c)(3) public interest law firm dedicated to election integrity. The Foundation exists to assist states and others to aid the cause of election integrity and fight against lawlessness in American elections. Drawing on numerous experts in the field, PILF seeks to protect the right to vote and preserve the Constitutional framework of American elections.
