Dallas Proposed Redistricting Map

“Texas is changing and Republicans in Texas – especially those in senate and congress – need to accept that they have to allow for adequate representation for our communities,” said LULAC national president and Dallas resident Domingo Garcia.

Garcia, a former state representative, called the map released Monday unconstitutional.

Garcia said the map makers broke up the North Texas metro area’s skyrocketing Latino population and “packed them into African American districts to disenfranchise Latino voters.”

Those districts are already represented by Democrats, Garcia said.
