Illegal Aliens Skew Congressional Representation and Federal Dollars

Posted by Matt

The Census!

Non-Citizens are NOT supposed to be counted in the census data that is used to determine the number of Congressional seats that are given to each state. President Trump wants the question put back on the census form, but the democrats are fighting it because the large illegal population states would lose representatives in congress and also their share of Federal dollars (our tax dollars) would go down. People who are here illegally artificially inflate the states population and skew the actual citizen numbers.

I have no issue with illegals being counted in the census for the purpose of knowing how many people are inside the borders of our country and any argument about scaring illegals or disenfranchising them is empty because they violated our laws and shouldn’t be here to be counted at all. The only issue I have is why should they impact the makeup of our elected representatives for a county that they entered illegally and are not citizens. Citizens are members of the United States of America. Would you allow non-members of an organization be counted and have seats on a board of directors based on their inflated numbers? I don’t think so!
Here’s the facts:
========================

Section 2 of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution provides, “Representatives shall be apportioned among the several states according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each state, excluding Indians not taxed.” Section 1 of the same Amendment provides, “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside.” The order of these two Sections implies that the persons upon whom apportionment is to be made are persons born or naturalized in the United States.
