Trump Immigration Stance Could Cause Calif. to Lose Money, House Seat

From Politico:

Fear is rising among Democrats over the prospect that President Donald Trump’s hard line on immigration might ultimately cost California a seat in Congress during the upcoming round of reapportionment.

Top Democrats here are increasingly worried the administration’s restrictive policies — and the potential inclusion of a question about citizenship on the next U.S. census — could scare whole swaths of California’s large immigrant population away from participating in the decennial count, resulting in an undercount that could cost the state billions of dollars in federal funding over the next decade and, perhaps, the loss of one of its 53 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives.

The fears are well-founded: According to the population formula used by Congress to distribute House seats every 10 years, California is currently on the bubble in 2020, on the verge of losing a seat for the first time in its history.

Such a crime, to ask peope in a census if they are citizens.

Meantime, as some in California push for seceding from the union – not sure I’d fight the Civil War again over that one – others in the rural counties of California want to secede from the state and create “New California,” leaving the coast on its own.

California, the secessionists say, violates both the federal constitution and its own, ruling as a tyranny.

  1. California/Hollywood/homeless encampments/filthy streets/disease/rampant crime/sky-high taxes/restrictive regulations, millions of Spanish speaking illegal aliens, and the rural areas want to leave!
    Two states – California and Florida.
    Both enjoy balmy weather, ocean views, lots of amenities. The big difference – California invites the illegal aliens and budget busting taxes, while Florida invites American retirees and low taxes.
    I’d want to leave CA, too.

  2. They aren’t “immigrants” if they can’t legally vote. They are “illegal aliens.” Let’s not help the Progs blur the barrier between legal and illegal.

    Their victory in getting legitimate news and opinion sources to use the same word for illegal aliens and legal immigrants has been so effective in positioning interlopers as legitimate residents.

    No more. I just read a sob story about a guy who was deported to Mexico after 30 years. Some fool married him, so he has anchors here to tug Prog hearts. He was first order to deport in 2006!!!!!

    He said he thought this might happen, but thought he had more time.

    Did he make any moves to set up a life in Mexico for himself and his family? No. He just hung on. Now he’s living with an aunt and willing to “take any job.”

    If he had any grit, he would have planned for this event and self-deported with dignity and his family.

  3. Former homeowner in San Mateo county. (Half Moon Bay) Saw it go from the Golden State to the golden showers state. Pee and poop anywhere. The downfall of civilization as far as I’m concerned. Time to let them go (sad).

    May it please God, the courts, and come to pass.
