    California Would Lose Seats Under Census Change

    California Would Lose Seats Under Census Change

    By SAM ROBERTS
    Published: October 27, 2009

    A Republican senator’s proposal to count only United States citizens when reapportioning Congress would cost California five seats and New York and Illinois one each, according to an independent analysis of census data released Tuesday. Texas, which is projected to gain three seats after the 2010 census, would get only one.

    The proposed change would spare Iowa, Louisiana, Michigan and Pennsylvania the expected loss of one seat each. Indiana, Montana, North Carolina, Oregon and South Carolina would each gain a seat.

    If every resident — citizens and noncitizens alike — is counted in 2010, as the Census Bureau usually does, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Nevada and Utah would gain one seat each and Texas would get three, the analysis found.

    Losing one seat each would be Iowa, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania, according to the analysis of census data through 2008 by demographers at Queens College of the City University of New York.

    Personally, I really don't want NC to gain another seat because of the illegal population count. It takes me quite a while to email all our reps with my opinion, not to mention the state legislature.
    I am considering moving to Antarctica and hope they have internet connection. I am so sick of our laws being overrun by illegal aliens supplementing the redistrictricting of our political systems, plus everything else we hand over to them with no questions asked.
    There ought to be a law...oh, never mind. There are plenty of laws that no one seems to acknowledge or follow.

    Shouldn't the headline be

    "Iowa, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and California lose seats under census change"
    NO AMNESTY

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.

    All of this will not be an issue any longer if we allow our Congress to ratify the Copenhagen Treaty after the traitor in the White House hands over our sovereignty by signing it.
