I lenry Bonillas district with "racially discriminatory intent” to ensure re-election of the Republican who has not fared well with Latino voters, an expert testified Tuesday during the federal redistricting trial. The map of new congressional districts approved by the Legislature this year redesigned District 23 in South Texas and others in an attempt to put more Republicans in Congress. Democrats and minority groups are challenging the new map in court. Bonilla has held the District 23 seat for 11 years but does not typically garner a high percentage of the Hispanic vote, said J. Morgan Kousser, a professor of history and social science at the California Institute of Technology. “Congressman I lenry Bonilla has faced increasing challenges in his district, which is increasingly I lispanic," he testified. “Congressman Bonilla Afr Great Gifts Been to the mall?

Kousser called the split of mostly Hispanic Laredo a “smoking gun,” of racial intent. “They adopted a racial means to their partisan ends,” Kousser said. In tile proposed map, District 23 stretches from Webb County northward, capturing part of the Hill Country and into far West Texas along the Mexican border. During cross-examination, Andy Taylor, an attorney representing the state, questioned Kousser about the 1991 round of redistricting by Democrats, who had the majority in the Legislature at the time. Taylor has argued that the main point of the COP map approved this year was to increase the number of Texas Republicans in Congress, s 11.95 Per Room Steam or Pry ('arpet/l Jpholstery Auto Cleaning Emergency Extractions HELPING HANDS SERVICES (210) 566-0238 Certificates of Deposit = Certificates of Depreciation EARN 5.25% Are you looking for higher interest rates ’ Are you looking for tax deferred’ earnings?
