Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Alabama, said that there are roughly 15 million illegal aliens in the United States, and that it has resulted in the Democratic Party picking up 20 additional congressional seats across several Blue states. As such, he and his state are suing the federal government to exclude illegal residents from the census counts.
During an interview with Breitbart News, Brooks said states counting illegal aliens into the total population for districts when dividing electoral college votes and congressional seats is a direct violation of the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. But he warned that this has been a practice for many years, and it could have irreversible effects on the U.S. electorate.
Brooks also argued that Alabama and several other states are currently suing the federal government for counting illegal aliens — rather than legal citizens — for congressional apportionment to divide up of electoral college votes during elections.
“We’re probably in the neighborhood of about 15 million illegal aliens in America now. 15 million comes out to roughly 20 congressional seats and 20 electoral college votes. Each congressional seat has roughly 700,000 to 800,000 people in it,” Brooks said.
When asked about a solution to this catastrophic event, which has been happening for years and could dramatically reshape the U.S. electorate for decades to favor Democrats, Brooks said Congress is the problem.
The Alabama Republican said that if Congress continues dividing congressional seats and electoral college votes based on every individual in districts — including illegal aliens — the Democratic Party could easily pick up 20 congressional seats.
Here’s part of what he told Breitbart News:
“So, if you count illegal aliens in the Census for the purposes of distributing political power, that’s the number of congressmen per state or … the number of electoral college votes per state, you’re talking about … 20 electoral college votes and congressmen that are taken from states that follow our laws, that help our border patrol agents, and help our ICE agents … shifting those 20 congressional seats and 20 electoral college seats to states like California that have large numbers of illegal aliens in them.”
“I personally believe that’s wrong, on a policy level, but I also believe it violates the Equal Protection clause of the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution because it dilutes the voting power of citizens who live in states that don’t harbor an enormous number of illegal aliens”
Brooks comments should not be taken lightly, as this process obviously favors Democrats and could strip away dozens of congressional seats from the Republican Party.
In fact, many conservatives understand that the Constitution was designed to prevent salve-holding states an inordinate amount of power over the nation, and understand that the same ‘population’ tactics are being used today by democrat controlled areas.
Brooks is arguing that when Congress divides congressional seats and electoral college votes based on all persons in a district, they currently include an estimate of how many illegal aliens in with the total figure.
Given this is primarily happening in Blue states, he argues, this process has been allowing the Democrats to gain more congressional seats.
This could also play a big role in the Left’s efforts to retake the House in November’s midterm election.
Many Americans share Brooks’ concerns, and have been applauding efforts from the Trump administration to combat illegal aliens registering and casting votes in American elections.
Most Americans believe that Brooks’ dire warning is something everyone should take very seriously.
