Today’s Supreme Court decision regarding Arizona’s voter I.D. Law

The following statement was given by the Reverend Jesse L. Jackson Sr. concerning today’s Supreme Court decision regarding Arizona’s voter I.D. Law:  

 

“This decision is a tremendous victory for the integrity of our democracy in resisting the states’ rights agenda and the rollback of equal access. While this was aimed at Latinos, it has broad implication for seniors, African-Americans and the poor who have less access to proof of citizenship and photo identification. We herald this decision.  It is a victory for Democracy”
