MALDEF represents the Texas Latino Redistricting Task Force and fifteen individual Latino voters in a challenge that argues the Texas redistricting plans don’t comply with the Federal Voting Rights Act and the U.S. Constitution.

Given the increase in Texas’ Latino population from 2000 to 2010, the Texas Legislature should have included additional Latino-majority congressional and Texas House districts in its redistricting plans. MALDEF will introduce alternative maps at the trial and present experts and community representatives from around the state in support of its legal challenge.
