DNC TELLS PELOSI AND FEINSTEIN TO 'IGNORE THE NEGATIVES; JUST GET THE
FACT: You want to talk about foreign interference in our elections?
Illegal Aliens give California NINE extra electoral votes (because they
are counted towards a state’s number). This cancels out entire states!
not just California. Any State with a large number of Illegal Aliens is
getting extra seats in the House and extra electoral votes, which ARE
taken away from other States.
is the one and only true reason the Left wants to give Illegals everything
under the sun… VOTES!
are a couple of excerpts from 2 left leaning Mainstream Media sources
about it. I case your Liberal friends need proof!
distribution of seats in the House is referred to as apportionment, which
is based on states total population and includes illegal immigrants. A
national census is taken every 10 years to apportion seats in the House,
but as CIS reported, the Constitution offers no method for apportionment,
nor a method for compiling total population for apportionment. Currently,
the resident population includes illegal aliens.
immigration played a significant role in the redistribution of seats in
the past. In 1990, 12 seats were redistributed, and in 2000, 16 seats were
redistributed. Louisiana was one of the states adversely affected.
2000, four states either lost a seat or didnt gain a seat they otherwise
would have, and five states had one seat fewer than it otherwise would
states actually gained seats because of illegal aliens. Nine redistributed
seats went to California alone.
non-citizens also change the landscape of the electoral map because the
Electoral College is based on the size of congressional delegations.
Federation for Immigration Reform (FAIR), which twice led unsuccessful
campaigns to remove illegal immigrants from the process of apportionment,
reported the 2004 election benefitted Kerry with a net gain of two
Electoral College votes.
the results were insignificant in that particular race, the
reapportionment of seats caused by illegal aliens has affected the past
two presidential elections and will continue to do so in the future.
distribution of these 435 seats is not static: they are reapportioned
every ten years to reflect the population changes found in the census.
That reallocation math is based on the relative “whole number of persons
in each state,” as the formulation in the 14th Amendment has it. When this
language was inserted into the U.S. Constitution, the concept of an
“illegal immigrant,” as the term is defined today, had no meaning. Thus
the census counts illegal immigrants and other noncitizens equally with
citizens. Since the census is used to determine the number of House seats
apportioned to each state, those states with large populations of illegal
immigrants and other noncitizens gain extra seats in the House at the
expense of states with fewer such “whole number of persons.”
math gives strongly Democratic states an unfair edge in the Electoral
