President Obama calls the Supreme Court’s latest ruling a “setback.”
The Voting Rights Act of 1965 was enforced by Congress during the civil rights movement which outlawed outlawed discriminatory voting practices.
Today in a 5-4 vote, justices have now limited the historic Act. According to CNN, the court struck down a part of the law that uses a federal formula to determine which states and counties must undergo U.S. oversight of their voting procedures to prevent voter discrimination.
Have we taken a step back?
