It's because in Texas, most of the racial minority affected and whose voting rights would be unconstitutionally suppressed, are hispanic USA citizens.

And, USA Federal Judges say the Texas requirements would racially descriminate against hispanic voters. Now, just before the Nov 2012 Elections, the DOJ should do the same to all other "Red States" that have passed photo id requirements restricting rights of US Citizens to vote in their states:

I'm confused as to why they would single out Hispanic voters as being discriminated against. Would not every race be effected to varying degrees?

Would they not have been against it if it disenfranchised voters equally across the racial spectrum? I thought depriving people of their legal right to vote was always bad.
