Population drives how many Congressional House members are allocated for each State in Congress which comes to Washington to conduct the people’s business. These lawmakers are the ones who make and pass laws we live by. Important programs are affected in all aspects of the population count. Dollars are allocated in different parts of the country from the Federal level to the State level and ultimately to the counties and parishes of the country via the Census count. On the surface more representation appears to be a good thing, or is it?
The problem with the Census is that it counts everyone, whether legal or not – that fill out the form! By counting illegal aliens (Eligible for Welfare) the citizens of our country, in reality, are not represented fairly. Since it is a felony to be in the United States without proper authority, why are illegals counted in the first place? For example Florida’s illegal population has risen over the last decade and this does factor in the mix for increasing seats in congress.
When illegal aliens are counted in the Census you chip away at fair representation of our legal citizens and in reality their rights as citizens are diminished under unfair representation from districts with a higher number of illegals. At present, the method of taking the Census is the best we have to count legal citizens. However, it will also count illegal aliens if they fill it out. Without a doubt our States are not truly represented. Factor in voting fraud and you get the picture.
California has a heavy illegal population and has many seats in Congress, in fact California has 53 House seats in Congress of which only 14 are Republicans and the rest are Democrats. This usurps fair representation and the Will of the people within the Unites States if those illegals actually filled out the Census form.
We just may be in far better shape as a nation if we did not have illegal aliens in population counts, which are used to add more Congressional House seats and electoral votes for a particular State.
There may be a fix for this problem by changing the Census form, mandating Social Security numbers by each person who fills out the form. Then cross reference the IRS and Social Security data bases to confirm citizenship. By doing this, California for example, could lose many Congressional House seats causing them to fold in districts once held when a House seat/District is erased. And Electoral votes used in deciding our U.S. President are also lowered for the State.
