Rep. Steve King says Maxine Waters wins election to Congress with fewer votes
Politifact ^ | Truth-O-Meter

Posted on 05/30/2014 5:09:42 PM PDT by ObamahatesPACoal

Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, is one of the most outspoken opponents of illegal immigration in Congress. On May 22, 2014, during a speech on the House floor, he argued that proposals to overhaul immigration laws are a Trojan horse for Republicans, since allowing illegal immigrants a path to citizenship will boost the number of Democratic voters and eventually doom the GOP.

This is not the first time King has made this argument. Just over a year ago, King said that Ronald Reagan was wrong to have signed an "amnesty" law in 1986 that "gave Barack Obama about 15 million additional Hispanic votes in 2012." We found King’s math faulty and rated the claim False.

Oh absolutely they’re right.

Make 30 million poor angry jealous did-I-say-dirt-poor Mexicans eligible to vote and....they’ll vote for the second coming of Ronald Reagan?

Ya right.

It really Commie facts.

Its a pack of far left frauds who work for the St Pete Slimes,
a radical left rag which employs all the tired old retreats from the NYSlimes.

O.K., so Steve underestimated—make it 25 million additional Hispanic votes. At least his point was correct. Therefore, I find King’s logic meritorious and rate the claim True.

Congressional districts are based on population, regardless of whether the people are legal or illegal, us citizens or green card holders or illegal immigrants. Maxine Waters district is two thirds Hispanic, but many of them can’t vote. She needs far fewer votes to win an election than a Congressman in a more competitive district where there are more legitimate voters. CA has too many bogus congressional districts. If we could allocate districts on the basis of legitimate voters, CA would have fewer seats.

They gave his claim half-true on Maxine Waters. For a conservative claim that is a good rating.

Actually if you give illegals amnesty but restrict their residences to blue states only, the electoral vote won’t change much.
