ELECTION BOMBSHELL: How Open Borders Will Rig the Game for Democrats



In recent times, immigration experts have sounded the alarm on the potential consequences of unchecked illegal immigration, particularly about the representation of states in the House of Representatives and the allocation of Electoral College votes. The concern stems from an executive order signed by President Joe Biden in 2021, mandating the inclusion of all residents, including non-citizens, in the U.S. Census Bureau’s population count. This move has sparked worries about the impact on the distribution of political power, prompting some conservatives to call for action.

The Numbers Game

According to a conservative estimate, a staggering 16.8 million illegal aliens currently reside in the United States, and some argue that the actual number may be even higher. With an average House seat representing 761,168 residents, this would imply that illegal immigrants could account for up to 22 House seats. In a presidential election, states receive Electoral College votes based on the number of their House seats, magnifying the potential influence of illegal immigration on the political landscape.

The Sanctuary City Factor

The concern is further amplified by the presence of sanctuary cities, with New York City being a notable example. These cities provide a safe haven for undocumented immigrants, making it more likely for them to be included in the census count. Consequently, states with sanctuary cities stand to gain additional House seats and, by extension, Electoral College votes. This dynamic raises questions about the fairness and accuracy of representation, particularly when the individuals being counted are not legally permitted to reside in the country.

Outrageous Inclusion

Mark Krikorian, executive director at the Center for Immigration Studies, expressed his dismay at the situation, stating, “Illegal immigrants aren’t even supposed to be here, so their inclusion in the census count for purposes of apportionment really is outrageous.” This sentiment reflects the frustration among conservatives who argue that the very premise of including non-citizens in the census count for political representation goes against the principles of a fair and lawful democratic system.

Potential Solutions and Roadblocks

In response to these concerns, Republican lawmakers have introduced the Equal Representation Act, which aims to rectify the issue by requiring the Census Bureau to exclude non-citizens from its counts. However, with a Democratic president and Senate, the likelihood of this act passing appears slim. This political divide underscores the challenges in finding a bipartisan solution to address the perceived threat to electoral integrity posed by illegal immigration.

Looking Ahead

While the impact of this issue won’t be felt until the next census in 2030, the urgency to address it is apparent. Without legislative action, there is a risk of providing political representation to roughly 20 million illegal immigrants, primarily concentrated in Democratic strongholds. This potential distortion of electoral power emphasizes the need for a thorough examination of immigration policies and their implications for the democratic process, ensuring that the principles of fairness and legality are upheld in the representation of the American people.
