        Federal Court Rules Texas Gerrymandering Unconstitutional | PBS NewsHour

        On March 10, 2017, a panel of federal judges ruled two to one that Texas’s Republican-led legislature gerrymandered some of the state’s congressional districts in order to inhibit the growing Democratic influence of Hispanic voters. Gerrymandering is a practice dating back to the 19th century of drawing congressional district lines to benefit one political party over another.
