Native Americans say the North Dakota law was designed to keep them from the polls and violates the Voting Rights Act, the U.S. Constitution and the state Constitution. The Supreme Court just declined to get involved.
“We saw an educated White woman with financial, legal and familial support testify about being sexually assaulted, and then face the emotionally exhausting experience of being cross-examined for hours and disbelieved by many Senators. We got the message: If they won’t listen to her, it will be even worse for us.”
Republicans in the Senate Committee on the Judiciary ignored sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh to push their party’s nominee a step closer to the Supreme Court. Now the nation’s fate lies in the hands of the full Senate.
“To each and every senator, we say: This is the civil rights vote of your career. We will be watching closely. Make no mistake—we are in the fight of our lives, and we hope you are prepared for battle.”
