The Texas Miracle #5: What’s Wrong with Texas Voters?
You’ll also meet an undocumented Texan named Victor Erives, whose deaf parents brought him to Texas hoping to find a better life — only, years later, to see the state his family risked everything to call home turn its back on immigrants just like him.
In this week’s Ask A Texan segment, we’ll ask formidable Tyrant’s Foe Fred Lewis to explore a question — one often screamed, in all caps, on any given election night: Why don’t Texans vote? And be sure to stay tuned through the outtro for a special crowd-sourcing assignment involving the Texas Miracle’s Ask A Texan hotline.
