TRUE FACT: You want to talk about foreign interference in our elections? Illegal Aliens give California NINE extra electoral votes (because they are counted towards a state’s number). This cancels out entire states!

Illegal Aliens Give California NINE Extra Electoral Votes

It’s not just California. Any State with a large number of Illegal Aliens is getting extra seats in the House and extra electoral votes, which ARE taken away from other States.

This is the one and only true reason the Left wants to give Illegals everything under the sun… VOTES!

Below are a couple of excerpts from 2 left leaning Mainstream Media sources about it. I case your Liberal friends need proof!

From CBS News: Illegal Immigration Affects Electoral Votes

The distribution of seats in the House is referred to as apportionment, which is based on states total population and includes illegal immigrants. A national census is taken every 10 years to apportion seats in the House, but as CIS reported, the Constitution offers no method for apportionment, nor a method for compiling total population for apportionment. Currently, the resident population includes illegal aliens.

Illegal immigration played a significant role in the redistribution of seats in the past. In 1990, 12 seats were redistributed, and in 2000, 16 seats were redistributed. Louisiana was one of the states adversely affected.

In 2000, four states either lost a seat or didnt gain a seat they otherwise would have, and five states had one seat fewer than it otherwise would have.

Five states actually gained seats because of illegal aliens. Nine redistributed seats went to California alone.

These non-citizens also change the landscape of the electoral map because the Electoral College is based on the size of congressional delegations.

The Federation for Immigration Reform (FAIR), which twice led unsuccessful campaigns to remove illegal immigrants from the process of apportionment, reported the 2004 election benefitted Kerry with a net gain of two Electoral College votes.

Though the results were insignificant in that particular race, the reapportionment of seats caused by illegal aliens has affected the past two presidential elections and will continue to do so in the future.


The distribution of these 435 seats is not static: they are reapportioned every ten years to reflect the population changes found in the census. That reallocation math is based on the relative “whole number of persons in each state,” as the formulation in the 14th Amendment has it. When this language was inserted into the U.S. Constitution, the concept of an “illegal immigrant,” as the term is defined today, had no meaning. Thus the census counts illegal immigrants and other noncitizens equally with citizens. Since the census is used to determine the number of House seats apportioned to each state, those states with large populations of illegal immigrants and other noncitizens gain extra seats in the House at the expense of states with fewer such “whole number of persons.”

This math gives strongly Democratic states an unfair edge in the Electoral College.
