It’s no secret that illegal immigration has had disastrous effects on the United States, but the ramifications of mass migration are more far-reaching than the mainstream media has let on. Even if illegal aliens do not explicitly vote in our elections (though many do), their presence still has a major impact on our elections — especially when it comes to the House of Representatives. Waves of illegal immigrants, which are counted in the U.S. census, are taking away the voice of legitimate American citizens, by skewing the way in which House seats are distributed among the states.
This is a problem that the mainstream media would never dare mention: If more Americans knew that illegal immigration has a direct effect on the way their states are going to be represented in Congress by simply being in the country, the Left’s real agenda to upend the United States as we know it would be revealed. The radical Left encourages illegal immigration not because they care about the plight of immigrants, but because they want to take over.
As Ammoland explains, there are only 437 seats in the House of Representatives. With an estimated 320 million people in the U.S., each seat represents approximately 800,000 people.
With at least 20 million illegal immigrants who get counted in the U.S. census, this means that an increasing number of those 437 seats do not represent American citizens, but rather illegal aliens. As Ammoland reports:
States like CA where upwards of 20% of the population are illegal aliens get a BIG boost in their representation in the House of Representatives based on population size. Traditionally Southern states with large African American populations get shorted. Just for fun let see how many house seats are represented by the 30 million illegal aliens in our country? The answer is 37.5. Now spread these around judiciously across the country. How many Democrats owe their house seat to the votes of Illegal aliens? You can spread these illegal aliens around and swing 60 or more house seats to the Democrats.
The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS.org) reported on this phenomenon more than ten years ago. In 2005, CIS Director of Research Steven A. Camarota provided testimony on the impact non-citizens have on congressional apportionment, both in the House and in the Electoral College.
“Overall we found that the presence of non-citizens caused a total of nine seats to change hands. Indiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin each lost a seat that they had prior to the 2000 Census while Montana, Kentucky and Utah each failed to gain a seat they other wise would have gained, but for the presences non-citizens in other states,” Camarota wrote in his report. At that time, it was estimated that two-thirds of the seats redistributed by non-citizens went to California.
Camarota notes that while it is popular to assume states that lose seats are declining in population, the truth is that this is not usually the case. It’s just that immigration is causing certain states to grow exponentially faster.
And it’s not just the House of Representatives people should be worried about. Illegal immigration affects the distribution of Electoral College votes as well, which ultimately means that even if illegal immigrants don’t go out and vote, they are still affecting our elections — by ensuring that our most liberal states get more influence.
Camarota states that ultimately “immigration takes away representation from states composed almost entirely of U.S. citizens so that new districts can be created in states with large numbers of non-citizens.”
Illegal immigration is just another tool being used by the radical Left to silence American citizens. Without rampant illegal immigration, radical leftists could kiss their place in our government goodbye. See more coverage of stories about elections at Libtards.news.
