Sen. Bill Hagerty accuses Democrats of plotting to use illegals to gain more congressional seats
By Laura Harris // Mar 15, 2024

Sen. Bill Hagerty (R-TN) has accused the Democrats of trying to secure additional electoral power and congressional seats using the more than 10 million illegal immigrants that entered the United States in recent years.

In 2021, President Joe Biden signed an executive order requiring the Census Bureau to determine the population of each state in the U.S. without regard for lawful residence status.

In response, Hagerty and other Republican senators proposed legislation that would exclude illegal immigrants from the census, fearing that their inclusion could impact the future apportioning of House seats and Electoral College votes.

The proposed legislation would mandate the inclusion of a citizenship question in future censuses and the disqualification of non-citizens, including legal migrants with temporary visas and green cards, from being considered in congressional apportionments.

However, the legislation failed to garner a single vote from Democrats, and the final Senate vote came out with 45 in favor and 51 against, with all members of the Democratic caucus – including independent Sens. Angus King (ME), Bernie Sanders (VT) and Kyrsten Sinema (AZ) – voting against the measure. Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) also voted with the Democrats.

In an interview, Hagerty argued that the only plausible explanation for blocking his measure is that the Democrats are aware of the electoral power they could gain in future elections by exploiting the country's massive illegal immigrant population.

"They're seeing the potential of the next census to lose congressional districts and electoral votes... But if you think about the motives for the crime that's taking place at our southern border, that is it. That's what the Democrats are trying to do," said Hagerty. "And it’s a sheer power grab. It's cynical as hell, and it's actually the most straightforward explanation of why they would tolerate this carnage and mayhem. It's in order to retain and gain power."

"I think that this proves the motive behind the crime in our border. They want these illegal migrants in here to create more electoral power for them in their blue states," he continued. "They’re basically creating sanctuary cities to be a magnet, so these people will disproportionately flow to these blue states. They’re shipping them there as rapidly as they can."

Including illegals in apportionment could have dire consequences

In February, the same month Republicans proposed the legislation, conservative experts had already warned the public about the potential effect of the immigration surge on House apportionment.

Lora Ries of the Heritage Foundation, alongside R.J. Hauman, the president of the National Immigration Center for Enforcement, warned that the crisis is "distorting the representation that states have in the House and how many electoral votes they have in presidential elections."

"Barring the Census from including non-citizens in apportionment is critical in making sure that American citizens — the only population who can and should vote in U.S. elections — are picking America’s leaders," Ries and Hauman wrote.

Mark Krikorian, the executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, shared the sentiment.

"Illegal immigration has all kinds of effects and among them is that it distorts the mechanics of democratic government. Illegal immigrants aren't even supposed to be here, so their inclusion in the census count for purposes of apportionment really is outrageous," said Krikorian in an interview with Fox News Digital in February.
