Blue State Dem's Foolish Attempt To Sue Trump, How Far Will This Go?
Liberals just revealed another reason why they are constantly pandering to illegals. California made the bold move of suing Trump in order to get more congressional representation. State officials are upset that Trump is not allowing them to count illegals in order to get extra representation in Congress. They are forgetting that they are illegals, not American citizens...
"California officials are suing President Trump’s administration to ensure they can continue to inflate their power in Washington, D.C. by counting illegal aliens in congressional apportionment — giving the state more congressional seats and electoral college votes than it would otherwise have.
California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, along with other California officials, filed suit against Trump after the president signed a memorandum to exclude illegal aliens from being counted when the federal government apportions congressional representation to the states.
The lawsuit readily acknowledges that California is able to inflate its congressional representation in Washington, D.C. and electoral college votes thanks to its enormous illegal alien and foreign-born population.
“The Memorandum and the exclusion of undocumented immigrants from the census apportionment count will likely cause Plaintiffs to lose one or more seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and, consequently, one or more electors in the Electoral College,” the lawsuit admits."
"The memorandum ensures states with small illegal alien populations are not rewarded less representation in Congress than states with large illegal alien populations.
Before Trump’s memorandum, red states that disincentivize illegal immigration were set to lose congressional representation.
Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) previously estimated that if there are roughly 15 million illegal aliens living in the U.S. and if they are counted in congressional apportionment, they could help secure 20 additional congressional seats for blue states."
We should not be rewarding states that take in illegals with extra political power. By doing so it is encouraging bad behavior. People that want to live here should come here legally. California is basically admitting that they are encouraging illegal entry with this lawsuit and the case should be dismissed just on that basis alone.
