illegals used to fudge the electoral college
Yep, there is a reason why the Dems are resisting the reduction in illegals in this country. Not only do they tradidionally gather in Democratic areas, they give democratic areas more Congressional seats and then accordingly, more electoral votes. A congressional seat, by the constitution, is apportioned not by citizens, but by raw population. Roughly every 700,000 people get a congressional district. In some California districts, over haldf of the population is illegals. Some California congressional seats have fewer than 200,000 citizen voters. some rural mid west congressional districts have nearly no illegals, but around 400,000 US citizen voters. So when legislation is before congress, that midwest congressman s constitutents are getting only about half of their representative say in Congress as an L.A. Congresswoman's constituents.
Guess how numbers of electoral votes are doled out to states? By congressional districts. So a watered down number of citizen voters in L>A> have their elector count for twice what the rural Kansas citizen voter gets.
They complain that they got a technical majority of votes but lost the electoral votes. The whole time they have been using illegals to skew the results. Illegals might not be able to vote in the booth on election day but they are getting counted for purposes of electoral college votes. That should scare all of us.
Congressman Jimmy Gomez, 34th Cal district, 85% hispanic total voters 151,000
Congressman Lloyd Smucker, 11th PA district 90% white total voters 280,000
Gomez' voters count for almost twice of what Smucker's voters do.
