Democrats Unanimously Vote To Have Illegal Aliens Included In Census

Democrats in the United States Senate unanimously took down Tennessee Senator Bill Hagerty’s legislative proposal to prevent illegal aliens from being counted in the US census. Hagerty believes that illegal aliens’ numbers could go towards the apportioning of House seats and the Electoral College, thereby favoring Democrats. 

Soon after President Joe Biden was installed in office in 2021, he signed an executive order mandating the Census Bureau to figure out the population of each state in the US without concern to whether residents have legal immigration status.

The amendment, which would be tacked on to the Equal Representation Act that Senator Hagerty proposed in February, would mandate the Census Bureau to feature  a citizenship question  in any future census. Any individual who isn’t a US citizen, which includes individuals with temporary visas and green cards, would subsequently be excluded from the ballot for congressional district and Electoral College apportionments. Census data is generally gathered every 10 years.

The proposal was tacked on to the $460 billion government spending package that was passed on March 9, 2024.

The measure was killed on a  45-51 vote after failing to acquire a single Democratic vote. Hagerty published a statement on March 8 blaming Democrats for obstructing the passage of the amendment for political reasons, while also vowing to keep bringing this issue up in the Senate.

“Democrats’ unanimous opposition to this commonsense measure confirms that they’re using illegal aliens and sanctuary cities to increase their political power,” he stated.

“With this vote, Senate Democrats chose to trample on the rights of each American’s voice. I will continue to fight and press this issue in the Senate,” Hagerty continued.

Hagerty has previously launched this accusation, contending that Democrat leaders in sanctuary cities are letting illegal aliens into their regions in an effort to acquire more votes and greater representation in the House of Representatives and Electoral College.

In sanctuary cities, political leaders limit cooperation with the federal government’s attempts to enforce immigration law, deport, or prosecute illegal aliens. Currently, there are about 200 cities, counties, and states that are deemed sanctuary jurisdictions in the US. New Orleans, New York City, and Washington, D.C., are the most prominent among them.

Louisiana Senator Bill Cassidy, Alabama Senator Tommy Tuberville, and several other Republican leaders also sponsored the Equal Representation Act introduced by Hagerty in February. Per the press release from Senator Cassidy, the legislation came as a response to a video that showed a Democrat Congresswoman openly pushing for additional  illegal immigration to her New York congressional district due to how she “needs more people in her district for redistricting purposes.”

Per the Republican senators, the large number of illegal aliens in a state such as California have helped the state acquire more congressional seats and Electoral College votes than the population of citizens would otherwise allow. They blame California and other sanctuary states for being more lax towards illegal aliens so that they can increase the power of their residents’ votes relative to those living in states not being artificially boosted by illegal immigration.

Mass migration is more than just a movement of people. It’s a concerted effort by the ruling class to fundamentally alter the country’s demographics, thereby transforming the country’s political environment in a way that would be unrecognizable to the founding generation.

The only way to prevent this nightmare scenario is by bringing a new ruling class into power who will pass immigration restriction measures.
