Illegal immigration could have major impact
on House seats, Electoral College: experts

Immigration experts are raising the alarm about how the increasing flow of migrants illegally crossing into the U.S. may significantly impact states' representation in the House of Representatives and Electoral College. Shortly after taking office in January 2021, President Biden signed an executive order requiring that the U.S. Census Bureau factor in all residents, including noncitizens, as part of its decennial calculation of the U.S. population. As a result, the apportionment of House seats and, therefore, electoral votes for presidential elections, could be swayed as migrants continue to pour over the southern border. "Illegal immigration has all kinds of effects and among them is that it distorts the mechanics of democratic

Why has this executive order not been challenged in court since 2021?

That's one of the reasons they are here. Democrats aren't welcoming them here so they can have a better life they are welcoming them so they can establish domination at the polls.

Duh. That's the point. We need more stupid Americans and since we are roughly divided down the middle, stupid Americans must be imported. It's faster than brainwashing and re-education of those who will not be converted.

Quit feeding/supporting them, and don't count them. E verify for jobs and then, hunt down and send back the ones that don't leave voluntarily! They're not citizens and don't deserve the benefits of citizenship. Of course, the benefits of actual citizenship is no benefits and high taxes while you support the crooked pols and the rest of the world's gimmedats!

That is one of many reasons we need to start sending them back as soon as Trump sits down as his desk at the White House in January. Trump has promised to do just that. WE don't need more IRS agents, we need more ICE agents.

This is the whole point of the open borders, millions of Americans have fled Blue State since the last census. So much so that it has been speculated they will lose so many congressional seats the Democrats will not have enough to control congress and so many electoral votes they would not be able to elect a POTUS. Mass illegal immigration is simply the Left replacing the millions of Americans who fled their insane tyrannical rule, the "replacement theory" is not a theory at all, its reality.

the obama/biden administration will destroy this country beyond repair unless something is done to keep diapers from a 2nd term, which will be comrade obama's 4th term in office - who started these "Executive Orders" in the first place? - they have no standing and should. at the least, be ignored but, in reality, the should never see the light of day - the Constitution doesn't give any president the right to legislate or make laws and edicts without Congressional approval - where are the republicans on this and why is it being allowed that the president make these unlawful orders?

In the headline it should read will rather than could. Biden is 101% politically partisan and he would not have issued that executive order directing the Census Bureau to be sure to count all aliens in the USA, if he and his leftist and socialist Democrat managers did not believe that counting all aliens in the USA would not favor the Democrats politically. Right now Biden and the leftist and socialist Democrats are pumping as many illegal aliens as possible into the Democrat run so-called sanctuary cities and areas. By doing that Biden and the leftist and socialist Democrats know that under current procedures millions of illegal aliens are being staged in those sanctuary cities, so that among other things those illegal aliens will be counted in the next US census by possibly by the tens of millions, thus bumping up the population census counts in those Democrat run cities and areas, causing the redistricting of a good number of congressional districts into those cities and areas, where leftist and socialist Democrat politicians are certain to win election to those redistricted congressional seats, giving the leftist and socialist Democrats a permanent majority lock in the House of Representatives on into the future. In other words foreign countries can send an unarmed army of illegal aliens (migrants) numbering in the tens of millions unlawfully into the USA, to be counted in the next US Census, causing a mass redistricting of US Congressional seats, by seeding those illegal aliens in Democrat run cities and areas, where leftist and socialist Democrats are bound to be elected to those redistricted districts and seats, causing permanent control of the House of Representatives to permanently favor the leftist and socialist Democrats. By going along with that plan Biden and his leftist and socialist Democrat managers are disrupting and limiting the future congressional representation to US Citizens residing in the old Congressional Districts for partisan political purposes. Clearly Congressional Districts should be located in areas around the country based upon the census population numbers of US citizens who are eligible to vote in US elections, and not illegal aliens who are not legal residents of the USA.

Biden’s border blackmail 8 replies

One week after Senate Republicans rejected White House-backed legislation that would have sent $3.7 billion to bail out sanctuary cities while also mandating the catch and release of all migrants arrested for illegally entering America from Mexico, Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials threatened to release thousands more migrants into the U.S. by slashing capacity to detain them at the border. This unveiled threat by President Joe Biden is despicable, but is also laughably empty, for the cuts he is threatening are to the exact levels his administration sought in his last budget. Biden’s plan to deal with budget shortfalls at ICE, caused entirely by his misgovernment of the border,

In laying the foundation for his sweeping decision against former President Donald Trump, Judge Arthur Engoron observed that “this is a venial sin, not a mortal sin.” Yet, at $355 million, one would think that Engoron had found Trump to be the source of Original Sin. The judgment against Trump (and his family and associates) was met with a level of unrestrained celebration by many in New York that bordered on the indecent. Attorney General Letitia James declared not only that Trump would be barred from doing business in New York for three years, but that the damages would come to roughly $460 million once interest was included.

The mayor of London is under fire from critics for allegedly snubbing an art installation memorializing Queen Elizabeth II in Trafalgar Square in favor of an art piece showcasing hundreds of transgender prostitutes, local media reports show. Labour Party Mayor Sadiq Khan approved £1 million, roughly $1.2 million, to fund Fourth Plinth installations in the city’s famed Trafalgar Square for 2026 and 2028, according to Express. The plinth has long been used to showcase contemporary art installations, and Londoners had anticipated a statue of the late queen to be installed following her death in 2022.

President Biden will again be the Democratic nominee for president of the United States of America. Even after a special prosecutor in his own Department of Justice described the 46th president as a “well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory,” the only path to a replacement is Mr. Biden himself stepping down. That’s not going to happen. Sure, it’s fun to speculate. For months, pundits on social media have been promoting the theory that California Gov. Gavin Newsom would sweep in at the last minute and save his party. Those rumors seemed to die down after Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Fox News host Sean Hannity provided Mr. Newsom

President Biden's administration and liberal supporters in Washington are bracing for a possible Donald Trump victory in November by installing "roadblocks" to limit the latter's ability to fire thousands of government workers, according to a new report. The Associated Press reported that a cabal of left-leaning experts, legal advisers and others are confident Biden will be re-elected but are urging him to prepare for the worst: another Trump presidency beginning in 2025. "My impression is the Biden administration is taking very seriously that potential threat and is trying to do things now," Michael Linden, former executive associate director of the White House Office of Management and Budget

A new survey found that two-thirds of full-time American workers say their income has not kept up with the rate of inflation. Rasmussen Reports released new survey results on Feb. 15 showing that 66% of American adults with full-time jobs have incomes outpaced by the rate of inflation, which continues to increase (though allegedly at a slower rate). Less than a third, or 29%, responded that their incomes did keep pace with the inflation rate. These numbers have worsened since October, according to Rasmussen, when 55% of full-time U.S. workers reported not having the income to keep pace with inflation.

President Joe Biden’s cascading confusion means Democrats have a problem similar to the one America faces as it slides ever deeper into debt. The crisis clearly requires action. You can pretend it isn’t real in the short term, but it won’t get better and won’t go away. It will only get worse. And the longer you delay, the harder and more painful fixing it will be. Just as continued overspending means more interest payments on mounting debt, so obdurate allegiance to Biden means his blue surrogates spend more time denying what’s increasingly obvious — that the guy is going gaga. In politics, it’s understood that if you’re explaining, you’re losing.

Lately, I have written and focused on the history of Watergate because I find it helpful in understanding American politics and power today. After living through Watergate, President Donald Trump has the benefit of having watched how the establishment’s legal-political-money-media lynch mob operates — a perspective that has allowed him to navigate through its attacks in ways Nixon simply couldn’t. But Watergate is only one data point in mapping out how the establishment tries to destroy its enemies. One of the most amazing things about Watergate is that Nixon’s predecessors, Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson, had done far more illegal things. The allegations Nixon was charged with

When Ronald Reagan challenged a sitting president, he famously asked his fellow countrymen: are you better off now than you were four years ago? This perfectly illustrates what is called the referendum hypothesis, meaning that elections with an incumbent are foremost a referendum on the incumbent. Decades later, when comedian Volodymyr Zelensky challenged incumbent president Petro Poroshenko in Ukraine, he told the latter in the same spirit during the debates: I’m not your opponent, I’m your verdict. Ukrainian voters rendered the verdict, elevating the outsider and first-time candidate Zelensky to the presidency with a whopping 73%.

He told Newsweek that 77-year-old Trump's cognitive deterioration is more obvious, but Biden's 'cognitive failure' could result in him refusing to relinquish control if needed during his second term.

I'm writing about the undeniable possibility that Michelle uses her husband's notoriety to launch her own political career. Rumors that Mrs. Obama might run for president have plagued the Washington political scene for years. But she has always denied that she wants the job. 'I've never expressed any interest in politics.
