US Justice Department sues Texas over Republican-drawn voting maps


In the US, Latino and Black voters say they are losing their right to vote.
Non-white voters in Texas are complaining of being frozen out after Republican politicians campaigned to have electoral maps redrawn following President Donald Trump’s election loss.
The Department of Justice claims Republican lawmakers are deliberately discriminating against a growing non-white population.
And it’s not just Texas – around the US, fights are brewing about voting-district gerrymandering.
