The Justice Department argued on Thursday that Texas's controversial voter identification law urged a federal court in the state not to take further action on the measure, arguing that it no longer discriminates against minority voters.
In a court filing, the Justice Department said that changes made to the original 2011 voter ID law remedied discrimination concerns and should be allowed to go into effect without further legal challenges from a U.S. district court.
Texas's original voter ID law, passed by the state's legislature in 2011, has faced numerous legal challenges. Courts repeatedly found that it discriminates against minority voters and the elderly.
