Figures. Anything that dilutes the votes of eligible citizens is gold to the Marxists.
So if you run a sanctuary city you get more seats in congress? Is that what this means?
Bit of picking and choosing in the article.
The people also included children, non-registered, people not eligible even though citizens. Quite frankly, that was not the “big count”.
This wasn’t a “let’s give illegals power” case. It was a ridiculous premise from the get go and was, properly, slammed from the Dist Ct through SCOTUS.
In other words, shift the balance in state legislatures to the democrats.
Are we there yet?
I notice how cavalier they are about throwing the Constitution and rule of law down the sewer.
I guess without judge Scalia gone, the way is clear to finish off what’s left of this once great Republic.
I'm a resident of Idaho. I had to work in San Diego for a while, but was not a "resident of California". I was subjected to income taxation by California (and Idaho and Nebraska), yet my only valid call on an elected official was in Idaho where I own my home. It's a travesty that I'm compelled to pay income tax to 3 states, yet only allowed representation where I'm a resident. How is that persons who are not legal residents get counted for purposes of determining proportional representation in the US House of Representatives or apportionment of state representatives? If you can't vote, why is your presence a factor in determining representation? It should be apportioned based on the number of legal voters. The court screwed up this opinion.
Clear power grab by GOPe in BushCo country.
These are the people fighting Trump, so what do you expect?
Supreme Court was UNANIMOUS! Very rare, indeed. Read it.
Current voters should be the only standard, but it won’t be.
US Citizens should be the next fallback standard.
When stationed in Germany, I didn’t expect their local representatives to my advocate in their government.
This is the same system used to destroy South Africa and install a communist regime.
Flood the country with outsiders and bus them in to vote.
This is a recipe, nay, encouragement for abuse and corruption. We are finished.
A unanimous Supreme Court ruled Monday that illegal immigrants and other non-citizens can be counted when states draw their legislative districts,
So why not everyone in China, too?
Unanimous decision? Clarence Thomas voted for this? Ouch.
“A unanimous ....”
This issue has been debated for 200 years. Remember that a compromise allocated each slave as 3/5 of a person for purposes of redistricting and representation in Congress. This gave the South more representatives compared with an allocation to citizens or all free persons.
I don’t think that this decision is unexpected, but it may not end up favoring the Democrats. The city cores are already dominated by the Democrats, now both blacks and illegal immigrants will be counted, making those districts even more concentrated toward the Democrat Party, But, since these districts must continue to be minority (black) majority districts, the result may be even more Democrat leaning with less ability to expand those districts into the suburbs.
