Statement from Congr. Doggett on Today's SCOTUS Opinion


Congressman Doggett released the following statement to Burnt Orange Report today on the SCOTUS opinion, emphasis mine: "There is good news and bad news. The good news is that only Justice Clarence Thomas insisted on imposing the crooked Perrymandered map and rejecting the vital preclearance requirement of the Voting Rights Act. The bad news is that the Supreme Court did not affirm every aspect of the ruling by Judges Garcia and Rodriquez in San Antonio, so our primary election is not likely to proceed on April 3. Yet nothing in the Supreme Court order precludes a final congressional map ...

They found a number of young men who were willing to answer the call for dutry including, a 17 year old named, Benjamin Mendoza.

Rep. Doggett Shifts Emphasis to Latino Voters


U.S. Rep. Lloyd Dogget (D-Austin) has been serving the people of the State of Texas in some capacity or another for most of his life. As a congressman since 1995, he has represented mostly the Austin area, although with redistricting these boundaries have changed somewhat. The current redistricting snafu has forced Doggett to, at once file for Congressional District 25 (Austin), while he actively campaigns in Congressional District 35 (running from the Austin area to San Antonio.) We spoke to Doggett this week to ask him about his campaign, what he has learned about Texas’ burgeoning ...

The Truth-o-Meter says: Mostly True | Lloyd Doggett says opposition to Confederate flag limits delayed House action on spending measures A congressman told a Texas group that action on measures funding the government slowed this summer due to opposition to proposals banning Confederate flag sales. Rep. Lloyd Doggett, a Democrat whose district runs south from Austin into San Antonio, stressed at a Sept. 3, 2015, Greater San Antonio Chamber of Commerce gathering that he hoped to help resurrect the U.S. Export-Import Bank. As it was in the Republican-majority House, Doggett said, up to six federal department budget bills had been delayed because of opposition to amendments that would ban Confederate battle flag sales at federal building gift shops.

Lloyd Doggett - Lloyd Doggett says by federal law, universities don't check immigration status of students
The Truth-o-Meter says: Mostly False | Lloyd Doggett says by federal law, universities don't check immigration status of students A Democrat said Texas universities rightly don’t check on whether students are living in the country with legal authorization--in accord with federal law. U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett of Austin, whose district stretches south into San Antonio, was asked in a December 2016 interview with Austin's CBS Austin to talk about whether certain college students should be worried amid threats to take away federal funding from so-called "sanctuary campuses," presumably a reference to colleges and universities whose leaders indicate no desire to help immigration authorities pursue students who lack legal U.S. residency.

Lloyd Doggett - Lloyd Doggett says Homeland Security only federal agency not funded through 2015 fiscal year
The Truth-o-Meter says: True | Lloyd Doggett says Homeland Security only federal agency not funded through 2015 fiscal year In a commentary, U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett of Austin criticized border-security legislation advanced by a fellow U.S. House member at a time that funding for the Department of Homeland Security seems stand-alone shaky. Doggett, a Democrat, said the Border Security Results Act offered by Austin’s Michael McCaul, the Republican chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, was premised on the unattainable goal of no unauthorized border crossers, making for a border tighter than that of North Korea. Moreover, Doggett wrote in his article posted online Jan. 26, 2015, by the Austin American-Statesman: "Our border security is being further ... >> More

The Truth-o-Meter says: Half-True | Lloyd Doggett says 80 percent of Republican-sought tax cuts flow to wealthiest 1 percent A Texas Democrat told congressional colleagues that President Donald Trump’s outlined plan to cut taxes would hugely--and mostly--benefit America’s wealthiest. U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett of Austin, whose district runs south into San Antonio, said in his Sept. 30, 2017, House floor remarks: "Eighty percent of the tax breaks in this proposal go to the top 1 percent--that is, people making more than $730,000 a year." Doggett made his claim three days after Republicans issued a framework outlining a proposed tax system with just three tax brackets, at tax rates of 12 percent, 25 percent and 35 percent, ... >> More
