Trump Moves To Exclude Illegal Immigrants From New Congressional Redistricting Maps — Here's How He'll Do It

The U.S. Census does not now contain any questions about respondents' citizenship or legal status.

The administration is also planning to release redistricting data that will allow states to draw their legislative maps in a way that will exclude all non-citizens, not just undocumented immigrants.

Still, the memorandum said that the constitution does not require undocumented immigrants to be counted for the goal of apportionment of the House of Representatives. In 2019, he attempted to get a question about citizenship status on the 2020 census at the Supreme Court.

Amber Heard told her mother Johnny Depp was 'violent and crazy'
Mr Holmes texted Ms Heard at around noon to say "on my way to get him", to which Ms Heard replied: "Trying to wake him now". Depp, 57, began taking the other bottles within reach and tossing them in his direction, Heard said.

They are asking a federal judge to declare the president's memo in violation of the Constitution and federal laws, as well as to block the administration from carrying it out and the clerk of the House from certifying an apportionment count delivered by the president that does not include people "on the basis of their citizenship or immigration status".

According to the Associated Press, Trump said in today's memorandum that "respect for the law and protection of the integrity of the democratic process warrant the exclusion of illegal aliens from the apportionment base, to the extent feasible and to the maximum extent of the President's discretion under the law".

Critics of the move told Reuters that counting illegal immigrants in the census is critical for determining funding levels for schools, health care facilities and other public utilities.

Dale Ho, director of the ACLU's Voting Rights Project, who successfully argued the case blocking the Trump administration from adding a citizenship question on the 2020 census, expressed certainty the new memo would suffer a similar fate.

President Trump signaled expectations that a provision to rename military bases named after Confederate leaders will not make the final version of the National Defense Authorization Act, despite the House and Senate overwhelmingly approving such defense legislation this week with veto-proof majorities. "That's why in May of 2018, I joined Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall (on behalf of the State of Alabama) in suing in Federal court to prevent illegal aliens from being included in the census apportionment count. We'll see him in court, and win, again". "This is all part of a broader left-wing effort to erode the rights of Americans citizens, and I will not stand for it".

Trump's Tuesday signing is the latest of several executive actions taken in recent months aimed at reforming the immigration system.
