Now, it might just be me, but the whole point of an American election is so American citizens can vote. Sounds silly right?
I mean, its not like there are not people that have come to this country legally that should be allowed to vote because they put the work in. I remember when our neighbor got citizenship about six months before the last election and he was so excited because he had been working for a long time so he could become a citizen, the idea of voting made so much sense to him and he could not wait to do it.
We need to protect elections for people like that.
President Donald Trump signed a memorandum Tuesday that seeks to prevent illegal aliens from being counted in congressional reapportionment, a move that drew immediate criticism and promises of court challenges on constitutional grounds from the open border, anti-American activists.
President Trump said that including people who are in the country illegally in the apportionment process “would create perverse incentives and undermine our system of government.”
Reapportionment is the process for redistributing seats in the U.S. House of Representatives based on changes in population found in each decennial census.
Last year the Supreme Court blocked the Trump Administration’s move to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census.
Chief Justice Roberts sided with liberals — shocker!
The census is taken every 10 years and is used to allot seats to the US House of Representatives in addition to distributing almost $1 trillion in federal funds.
“There is no end to Donald Trump’s anti-immigrant agenda,” said Tom Perez, chairman of the DNC. “First, he tried to put a citizenship question on the census but got blocked by the Supreme Court. Now he’s back at it with an unconstitutional order that has no purpose other than to silence and disempower Latino voices and communities of color.”
