Louisiana Senator, David Vitter, issued a press release “Vitter Offers Census Amendment to Require Questions about Illegal Aliens“. This is such a common sense thing that it has no chance. After all, we wouldn’t want to appropriately represent the people; just think of all the seats in the House the liberals would lose if California and other liberal states couldn’t count illegal aliens on the census. Senator Vitter says it right in his press release:
Illegal immigration is a very real and significant concern for our country,” said Vitter. “In the past, some states have included illegal immigrants during the census, resulting in the allocation of additional congressional seats. We shouldn’t let these states be rewarded for skirting our federal laws and this amendment would help stop this practice.
It is past time for the feds to quit diluting the citizens’ voice by counting illegal aliens; especially since they encouraged those illegals to come here in the first place through lax enforcement and government hand outs.
