Supreme Court Upholds 10th Amendment State’s Rights
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the Supreme Court voted 5-4 to uphold redistricting lines being drawn by those elected by the people, not appointed judges. Republican Party of Texas Chairman James Dickey commented:
“We applaud the Supreme Court for its ruling today that only elected representatives of the people should be able to decide district lines. As the opinion stated, Federal Courts have no role to play in determining legislative districts and our Founding Fathers never intended for them to play a role.
“The Supreme Court not only defended voters’ right to choose who draws district lines, but upheld the 10th Amendment of the Constitution. It’s clear that the President’s appointees to the Supreme Court have done exactly what they said they would do – defend the Constitution. This is a clear victory for the voice of the people.”
