U.S. Judge Nelva Ramos of Corpus Christi; one of the Good Gals

 

The state of Texas presented Nelva Gonzales Ramos with a law license in 1991 after she graduated from the University of Texas Law School.

 

In one matter, Judge Ramos presided over a case that involved claims of discrimination as it relates to the Texas Voter ID Law.

 

Texas’s clearly unconstitutional law requires voters to show one of seven approved forms of ID before entering the polls. The list of approved IDs includes gun registration ID cards but does not allow people to vote by showing college IDs.

 

The Republican state representatives and senators included the prohibition against college IDS because it is a well-known fact that the vast majority of college students are inclined to be liberal and therefore vote for Democrat candidates.

 

The legislation is also aimed at tamping down voter participation among African Americans, Latinos and low income folks who also are inclined to vote for Democrats.

 

In her latest ruling that found the Texas Voter ID law discriminatory and unconstitutional, Judge Ramos said:

  • "Proponents [GOP legislature] touted SB 14 as a remedy for voter fraud, consistent with efforts of other states.”
  • “As previously demonstrated, the evidence shows a tenuous relationship between those rationales and the actual terms of the bill."

In Deep Red Texas, it takes courage for any judge to go against any actions taken by the Texas Legislature even if they are provably discriminatory and unconstitutional.

 

Kudos to Judge Ramos for having the courage and fortitude to stand up to the bigoted Texas State Legislators who are hellbent on assuring that Texas remains Red.

 

As we speak (ca. May 2016), Judge Snow remains sitting as a U.S. District Court Judge in Corpus Christi, Texas.
