Federal Hearing Over Texas Redistricting Maps To Be Held Today


A federal hearing will be held in El Paso today on a request for a temporary injunction of Texas's new redistricting maps. The request was filed by Democratic State Senator Beverly Powell, who claims the maps are in violation of U-S election laws. Opponents of the maps say they dilute the voting power of people of color who fueled the state's population growth over the past decade. Powell says the new map takes away from the diversity of her district.
