Immigration and the Census
The current administration is turning the census into a political tool and a possible fraud, says that bastion of right wing opinion "The LA Times"???
"Official political innumeracy, enshrined in the census, steals our democracy. We count illegal immigrants the same as citizens and assign states congressional seats accordingly. This awards some states more representatives than they deserve. The census should, instead, count citizens separately, and Congress should reapportion representatives only on the basis of citizen populations. That would ensure that the votes of citizens in all parts of the country are as nearly equal as possible."
When President "Hope and Change" has lost the LA Times, he has lost his base. But perhaps the constant wave of illegal immigrants entering our country will be able to keep them in power. If that isn't enough, making Porto Rico the 51st state is still on the table.
