If the congressional districts were drawn to look at only the population of U.S Citizens in each state then we could see a power shift from the coasts to Middle America.
For example, California has an estimated three million illegal aliens,Â a total of about 5.3 million noncitizens, and a total population of about 39.5 million residents. Currently, California has 53 congressional seats, the most in the country.
If Californiaâ€™s congressional districtsÂ were set by the number of citizens in the state, it would potentially lose three to five congressional seats, leaving the state with about 48 to 50 seats.
Likewise, Florida â€” which has a noncitizen population of about 2.2 million people â€” would not gain any congressional seats if only citizens were counted. Under the current standards, they are expected to gain two seats.
Currently, congressional districts are set by the total number of residents. Each district cannot have less than 711,000 unless they are the only district in the state, like Wyoming.
If congressional districts were set by the number of citizens,Â the overall average population needed per congressional seat could decrease to about 670,000 citizens per district. This would give a stronger advantage for states with small illegal alien populations to gain and keep their current number of congressional seats.
For instance, if by counting citizens, a state like Ohio with few illegal aliens, could possibly gain a congressional seat, increasing the stateâ€™s totalÂ number of representatives to 17. Current projections suggest Ohio will lose a congressional seat.
In West Virginia, which is also slated to lose a congressional seat, the state could keep their three districts if the redistricting is counted by citizens.
Indiana, as well, â€” with less than 180,000 noncitizenÂ residents â€” would potentially increase its congressional seats from nine to ten if apportionment is based on the number of citizens in the state.
This is an important step to retake America. Illegal aliens should not have any influence on the elections in our country. By making sure only U.S Citizens are counted and only U.S Citizens can vote we can get back to having truly fraud-free elections.
