More illegals = More Congressmen ???

You already knew that currently, under the 14th Amendment, Congressional seats are apportioned by the number of people living in each state. That means that states with large numbers of non-voting aliens, legal or not, get more votes in Congress.

"Congresswoman Candice Miller of Michigan this week introduced House Joint Resolution 53, which proposes an amendment to change the way Congressional seats are apportioned, by only counting the United States citizens of each state as measured by decennial census."

That sure sounds like a good idea to me.

Gullyborg has the whole story at Resistance is futile.
