Appeals Court Overrides Judge’s Ruling, Texas Law Can Stay
Posted by Georgette Walrath | Sep 6, 2017 | Breaking News


In a victory for the nation, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a previous ruling against Texas Senate Bill 5 that would require identification to vote. The ruling yesterday stayed Obama-appointed Judge Ramos’ decision to thwart the legislation that ensures voters are citizens.

In a victory for American honor and truth, the New Orleans-based 5th Circuit Court of Appeals voted to allow Texas to use the revised voter ID legislation known as Senate Bill 5. The court not only explained that the law was constitutional, they blasted U.S. District Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos’s ruling a few weeks ago, saying she “went beyond the scope” of what she was requested to do.

The 2-1 victory for the Texas electoral system illuminates another issue that isn’t always clear to voters. Instead of legislation being the law of the land, the courts now have the power to issue law—something the founders never intended. In this case, Ramos overstepped her authority and used a biased mindset to enact her own personal will on the people of Texas. However, justice has prevailed and her ruling was stayed.

It often seems that liberals work toward establishing policies that pander to a minuscule portion of the population, while ignoring the desires of the mandated majority. If America was a democracy, these special interests groups would have absolutely no power, but because the framers were geniuses, they created a republic that would protect individual freedoms.

Liberals often employ those protections in order to work toward destroying them. Many leftist also have a skewed idea of minorities. Many support racist ideas that they believe are progressive, such as opposing voter ID laws. Their logic is flawed, but no one really expects rational behavior from leftists.

Essentially, Ramos said that SB 5, which was duly passed by the state’s senate, house, and signed by Governor Abbott, was racist. The argument was that people of color have a hard time getting a photo ID. However, that argument is prejudicial and by grouping all minorities into one lump, racist.

Anyone in Texas who has documents that verify citizenship, social security number, and some proof of residency are able to obtain a photo ID. The cost is $16 and the process can be done through the mail if a photo is already on file. Saying that those conditions are racist is insulting. There are no Jim Crow laws happening here, it’s a simple matter of citizenship. Perhaps to liberals, that is what’s racist?



Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton brought the suit to appeals court after Ramos’ decision.

In fact, if someone just can’t get a photo ID, the law makes provision for them. All a person has to do is execute a declaration that he or she has an impediment to obtaining a photo ID. The statement is made under the penalty of perjury, which shouldn’t be a problem as long as the person is telling the truth.

Fortunately, the 5th Circuit Court recognizes reality. Judges Jerry Smith and Jennifer Elrod wrote in a joint order Tuesday, “The State has made a strong showing that this reasonable-impediment procedure remedies plaintiffs’ alleged harm and thus forecloses plaintiffs’ injunctive relief.”

The two judges also said that Barack Hussein Obama-appointed Ramos went beyond her authority when she said SB 5 didn’t prove the new law would not discriminate against Latino and African American voters. The issue under question was whether the new legislation was better than the one passed in 2011.


It is highly racist to say that black and Latino Americans can’t get a photo ID. The new law just ensures that illegals can’t vote.

Ramos sided with the minority groups who asked that the new bill be scrapped because it didn’t solve the problems under SB 14, without much regard to her actual responsibility. Smith and Elrod wrote, “The district court went beyond the scope of the mandate on remand. Simply put, whether SB 5 should be enjoined — as opposed to whether it remedies SB 14’s ills — was not an issue before the district court on remand.”

The other judge on the panel, Judge James Graves Jr. was divided. He agreed that Ramos’ decision should be stayed, but thought that the legislation should be stopped too. “If a stay is granted at all, then it should be comprehensive. In other words, the correct approach would be to stay both the district court’s order and the new legislation,” Graves wrote.

The question really boils down to two elements. Is it reasonable and lawful to demand that only citizens vote in Unites States elections? And, is it racist to think that with all of the options available for everyone to obtain the means to legally vote that minorities would have problems?

Should be minimum 1 year hard labor for non citizens who vote in the USA. Plus automatic expulsion from the USA at the end of the sentence.
