(Liberty Bell) – The Democrats have made no secret of their support for giving undocumented immigrants all the same benefits as legal citizens and law-abiding immigrants who work hard, pay taxes, and participate in our constitutional republic.
Speaking of which, it has long been suspected on the right that the Democrats aren’t in favor of mass migration so much as eager at the potential votes they could earn were illegal aliens to venture into the voting booths.
Like most of the Democrats’ voting base, illegal immigrants are promised all sorts of government kickbacks by the party.
Amazingly, their communities, like most of those courted by progressive politicians, remain fraught with violence, crime, and poverty.
It’s almost as if the policies that Democrats are always proposing don’t actually work.
President Donald Trump has been quite blunt about this reality as well as the amazing opportunity Democrats have should illegal immigrants manage to influence elections.
He has now moved to prevent illegal immigrants from being included in an upcoming population counts that determine the number of House members each state is assigned.
“Last summer in the Rose Garden, I told the American people that I would not back down in my effort to determine the citizenship status of the United States population. Today, I am following through on that commitment,” the president said in a statement, according to Just the News.
They further explain:
Trump directed his memo to the Secretary of the Commerce Department and it will impact the state representation determinations following the 2020 Census.
In an apparent reference to California, Trump argued in the memo that counting illegal immigrants when determining states’ congressional representation would allow them to gain extra congressional seats based on its large illegal population.
“Current estimates suggest that one state is home to more than 2.2 million illegal aliens, constituting more than 6 percent of the State’s entire population. Including these illegal aliens in the population of the State for the purpose of apportionment could result in the allocation of two or three more congressional seats than would otherwise be allocated,” the memo notes.
The president said that states that are supportive of illegal immigration should not reap a boost in representation.
“Increasing congressional representation based on the presence of aliens who are not in a lawful immigration status would also create perverse incentives encouraging violations of Federal law. States adopting policies that encourage illegal aliens to enter this country and that hobble Federal efforts to enforce the immigration laws passed by the Congress should not be rewarded with greater representation in the House of Representatives,” the memo says.
