No Photo ID Abbott v. veasey, no. 16-393

In most places it is perfectly naturally to ask for Photo ID when buying alcohol, working a job, getting food assistance benefits, opening a bank account, into health club or bulk supermarket, and Drivers License IDs are required to drive, VA ID Cards are required to go into a VA Hospital or Clinic. Passports are necessary in order to board international flights. We live in a nation where a photo ID is necessary. Then why do some feel the need to water down the Presidential Election process by saying IDs are unconstitutional (especially when different states have different requirements)??

Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos of Corpus Christi cited that 600,000 registered voters don't have a Photo ID for voting purposes. And these people are African Americans and Hispanics therefore this is discriminatory of a protected class of individuals. That's all well and good, but I find it hard to believe that these US citizens are so far off the grid as to not work, drive, drink, bank or receive food assistance and yet at the same time register to vote. It raises other questions for me. But ultimately I am wondering what is being done to help these individuals grant an acceptable photo ID. Such matters are taken care of in places like Miami and San Francisco. Maybe Corpus Christi doesn't really care for their people like that.
