In January, 2012, the Sentinel posted an article about why illegal immigration is more than welcomed by Democrats; even the immigration of criminal illegals, and especially families is encouraged. If drug cartels and terrorists exploit the situation, it’s not a concern because the end goal is what matters.
One obvious reason is because they will one day vote and they support Democrats by a margin of 8 to 1, but it’s not only that.
It is a fact that the U.S. Census Bureau counts illegal aliens because the law states the census “‘is required by the U.S. Constitution to count everyone living in this country, regardless of immigration or citizenship status.’”
It’s interesting that a party that strongly advocates for a “living Constitution” wants to stick with this definition despite the rampant illegal immigration and the effect it has in making illegal aliens a strong political and economic power in the United States.
The decennial census, which counts all people regardless of immigration status, is used to allocate federal funds for education, housing, healthcare, transportation and other local needs. By some estimates, every person counted results in $1,000 in federal funds.
These statistics are used to apportion our 435 congressional districts. It also affects the number of Electoral College votes they are allotted.
As illegal immigration is promoted with our open borders policy and as millions take up residence in the United States, including criminals, the apportionment of the U.S. House of Representatives is restructured.
The Obama administration made it clear prior to the 2010 census that illegal aliens should come forward and be counted through taxpayer-funded advertisements, personal announcements, and community outreach by leftist organizations like LaRaza. Barack Obama promised they would not be deported if they reported.
Louisiana, Missouri, Montana, North Carolina, and Ohio all lost congressional seats under the counting method after 2010.
The National Review Online reported that New York, New Jersey, California, Florida, and Illinois, all liberal states, received eight additional congressional seats in the last reapportionment, with over half of those gains coming from their sanctuary cities and counties.
They also reported that data from the Migration Policy Institute show that 3.2 million of the nation’s 11 plus million illegal aliens reside in just 19 counties that include the sanctuary cities of the deep-blue states, mostly the cities of New York, Newark, LA, Chicago, and San Francisco-Oakland.
California flipped from solid red to solid blue after their open borders policies became entrenched.
It gives illegal aliens tremendous pull in deciding our elections, in protecting criminal aliens, maintaining sanctuary cities, and deciding our policies in general.
The new rules on “disparate impact” which require housing, jobs, and other pillars of society to have equal outcomes. This isn’t social justice for blacks, its social justice for the new democrat majority. Neighborhoods are being redesigned, at least that is the goal, to make the citizens disappear into the new population that votes only for Democrats.
The “dangerous” Libertarians, Tea Party people, Republicans will be effectively silenced.
Democrats will never give up this power, and the Electoral votes they’ve gained do matter in elections. The more power they get, the more illegal immigrants we get, and the less likely it is that citizens will decide their own elections in the near future.
Our vote is already greatly compromised.
By promoting open door policies, eliminating deportations, protecting sanctuary cities, by not following immigration law, Barack Obama, a red diaper baby, is rigging our future elections. His goal is a one-party Democrat-Socialist welfare state. We may not be thrilled with Republicans at times, but this administration wants them and it wants all opposition eliminated.
