Back when the Texas Legislature failed to come up with some maps that were not discriminatory, particularly toward Latinos, it was the Texas Latino Redistricting Task Force that did a mini-tour of the state to take their message to the media.
SomosTejanos.org was actually at the Houston press conference back then. So, we decided to compare the video to the outcome known as “the deal,” which is now being negotiated further in SA (as far as the interim maps go). It’s a good historical record of where things stood at that time. Did things change much from then to now?
