American Airlines opposes the proposed Texas Voting Rights Act for the following reasons
Gary Leff at 1. April 2021.
After being pressured to oppose the new Texas election law, American Airlines has released a statement.
They strongly oppose a bill passed by the Texas Senate that they say limits people’s ability to exercise their right to vote. They do not cite specific provisions in the bill or suggest which ones they do not think they can vote for. And give a little nod to the good people on both sides, despite the opposition’s strong statement,
We know how difficult this is for many people who have struggled to obtain and exercise their constitutional right to vote. Any legislation that affects the conduct of elections should ensure the integrity and security of the vote while facilitating rather than hindering voting.
You’d think the people of Skyview 8 would have liked to see Delta open their mouths about voting rights in Georgia, then they wouldn’t have been scolded for trivial proposals. American’s explanation does not explain what the bill actually does or why it reaches a level that requires explanation.
Here’s the American’s full statement,
This morning, the Texas Senate passed a bill restricting access to the ballot. To clarify the American position: We strongly oppose this and similar bills. As a Texas-based company, we must stand up for the rights of our team members and customers who live in Texas, and honor the sacrifices generations of Americans have made to protect and expand voting rights.
The vote is the hallmark of our democracy, the foundation of our great country. We value the democratic process and believe that every eligible American should be able to exercise his or her right to vote, regardless of the political party or candidate he or she supports.
We know how difficult this is for many people who have struggled to obtain and exercise their constitutional right to vote. Any legislation that affects the conduct of elections should ensure the integrity and security of the vote while facilitating rather than hindering voting. In American Society, we believe in breaking down, rather than creating, barriers to diversity, equality and inclusion in our society.
And while Delta has made it clear that it is committed to the bill, Americans One Way or Another isn’t saying whether it will push for Texas legislation on the issue – or whether it wants it to disappear altogether.
