American Electoral Map

Democrats see one of their primary duties as elected officials as using their majority status to consolodate power and ensure they never wind up in the minority again.

Nowhere has this been more publicized than in Democrats push to legalize illegal immigrants. From mass legalizations just prior to the 1996 election in conjunction with motor voter, to the current push for amnesty, Democrats have been working long and hard to get illegal immigrants voting any way they can — no matter how corrupt, no matter how detrimental to actual Americans.

Now, a study by the University of Connecticut shows kharma may have come back to bite Democrats in the ass. It appears as though large populations of illegal immigrants will be giving more power to solidly Republican states and taking power away from solid Democrat states like New York and Illinois:

Illegals could cost congressional seats

WASHINGTON, Oct. 2 (UPI) — U.S. states with large numbers of undocumented immigrants could receive additional seats in Congress after the 2010 census is conducted.

A University of Connecticut study concluded Arizona, Texas and Florida could all see their House delegations increase due to rising populations that include sizable numbers of illegal immigrants.

Although they can’t vote, such aliens are included in the census. The San Jose (Calif.) Mercury News predicted Tuesday the pending 2010 headcount could be the subject of a political fight as Democrats and Republicans jockey for position before House seats are reallocated.

The Connecticut study also predicted California and New Jersey would likely keep their current number of seats while states with fewer immigrants, including New York, Illinois and Ohio, will lose a seat or two.

I think this is just one of many ways kharma is going to come back and beat the crap out of Democrats in the near future. Lord knows they have it coming.
