Trump's DOJ Has Not Filed A Single New Voting Rights Act Case

Even Republican administrations before Trump found ways to enforce the Voting Rights Act.

The apparent refusal of President Trumpís Justice Department to engage in any meaningful, public enforcement of the Voting Rights Act has taken Republicansí general hostility to the law to a whole new level.


The DOJ has not filed a single new Voting Rights Act case since the Trump administration took over ó setting it apart from the last several administrations, Republican and Democratic.

While it did some litigating of cases under other election laws in the first half of the administration, the Justice Departmentís Voting Section has not brought any new cases since 2018.

The current dry spell in DOJ voting rights enforcement is unprecedented, according to the DOJís own public record and what former voting section officials told TPM.

3. I bet Barr will bring a bullshit VRA case on behalf of white voters, like Dubya's DOJ did.

You can rest assured Barr will never sue to protect voters of color.
