Rick Hasen and Reuters on What to Do If the Roberts Court Strikes Down Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act

As the Republican and Tea Party struggle to find new ways to keep unwanted voters from voting, the Roberts Court has agreed to hear arguments on the constitutionality of a pillar of the legislative achievements of the civil rights movement, long a despised group of Americans whom the Republican Party wish would just go away.

Rick Hasen offers If the Court Strikes Down Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act: An Online Reuters Symposium.

Damn blacks and browns.

We should just build a damn fence and put this bunch away from proper American society; not to worry about their passing themselves off surreptitiously as good Americans though.

I mean no need to mark their clothes with a 'B' for Brown or Black. Or, a 'UV' cloth patch designating Undesirable Voter.

Just look at 'em and you can tell. Maybe make them carry papers if they insist on travelling.

As the National Review editors write (in an outrageous editorial even for this guys) as they attempt desperately to keep them away:
And, if we are to take Hispanics at their word, conservative attitudes toward illegal immigration are a minor reason for their voting preferences. While many are in business for themselves, they express hostile attitudes toward free enterprise in polls. They are disproportionately low-income and disproportionately likely to receive some form of government support. More than half of Hispanic births are out of wedlock. Take away the Spanish surname and Latino voters look a great deal like many other Democratic constituencies. Low-income households headed by single mothers and dependent upon some form of welfare are not looking for an excuse to join forces with Paul Ryan and Pat Toomey.
