This Is Why Sanctuary Cities Aren’t Just A Blight
They’re A Threat To Our Republic
Did you know that every single illegal alien in this country implicitly votes? They don’t necessarily vote by casting a ballot. They vote by residing in a state. For every human that goes to sleep and wakes up in a particular state, that state can measure them as a ‘resident.’ This means a state like California that has 3 million illegal aliens benefits from the presence of criminals.
Those people might not vote in an election. But they don’t have to. They rely on liberals to elect liberal congressmen and just by being present they enable their legal liberal counterparts to send more liberals to Congress. They don’t need to step near a ballot box once. That might stop soon thanks to a Constitutional Amendment, currently known as House Joint Resolution 30 (HJR#30) proposed by Representative Steve King (R-IA4).
That wasn’t Rep. King’s only announcement either. Let’s take a look at why this is so important:
There are 435 seats in the house of representatives — that’s a fact that a lot of people know and are comfortable with. But not many people understand how those seats are apportioned. There are buzzwords that get tossed about when it’s politically convenient to do so and most notably when one thinks of apportionment issues they think of “gerrymandering.” And that’s an issue, sure — Democrats and Republicans alike use the practice of gerrymandering to carve out fiefdoms that are easier to maintain. But this article is about something that isn’t as widely recognized, is hardly ever spoken about, and really needs to change.
Did you know that the number of seats granted to a state in the House of Representatives is directly related to the number of breathing bodies — legal or illegal — residing in the state?
Did you know that the number of seats apportioned to a state in the House of Representatives has NOTHING to do with the number of citizens living in the state?
If you were unaware, don’t be shocked. The elites are not exactly interested in keeping you informed these days. But here’s what you need to know: regardless of one’s status as a citizen, a resident, or even an illegal alien, people in the United States are counted the same.
Why? Because the a certain famous amendment made a glaringly obvious error and its worth taking a second to see why:
“Representatives shall be apportioned among the several States according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each State, excluding Indians not taxed,” The Fourteenth Amendment Reads.
There are two major takeaways from this excerpt. The first point is the most important: that the use of “persons” stipulates that it doesn’t matter what status said “persons” are living under, it only matters that they are living. The second point is that the architect of the 14th viewed paying taxes in some capacity as the only significant factor that should be considered when taking the count. Somehow, a Native American was effectively less an American in terms of representation in Congress than an illegal alien. In many cases, this held true until 1957.
Let’s return to the issue at hand: How many seats would change?
A state like California benefits from having 3 million illegal aliens. Have you ever stopped to consider why they love sanctuary cities so much? They have an incentive to let those people remain in a densely packed area. And while most of those illegal aliens probably aren’t voting too often in elections, just by being present within the borders of that state they are enabling the state legislators to have a heavier buying power in Congress (and also in the electoral college).
“If the apportionment of seats in the House of Representatives for the 114th Congress were to be based on the 2013 estimated citizen apportionment population rather than the 2010 total apportionment population, as required by the Constitution, it is estimated that seven seats would shift among 11 states. California would lose four seats relative to its actual distribution of seats as a result of the 2010 apportionment. Texas, Florida, and New York would each lose one seat relative to the number of seats received in the 2010 apportionment.”
