Is it illegal for US states to make it more difficult to vote and attempting to target a political group?

The US attorney general is preparing to sue state of Georgia as of writing. The goal of these voting laws, activists say, is to reduce Democratic turnout after Democrats won the state's electoral votes and Senate seats around the end of 2020.

I have read that attempting to make it harder for a political party's base to vote for the sake of harming them electorally is illegal. Is it illegal for a state legislature to make it harder for groups that predominantly support one political party to vote to hurt that party electorally? If so have any states ever been punished for this?
