AL Attorney General Defends Lawsuit Against Illegal Alien Inclusion in 2020 Census
Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall today defended Alabama’s lawsuit challenging the federal government’s plan to include illegal aliens in the 2020 Census. Marshall made the comments today during a hearing before the U.S. House Judiciary Subcommittee.
Marshall and U.S. Representative Mo Brooks of Huntsville filed their lawsuit on May 21st challenging the U.S. Census Bureau’s counting of illegal aliens. The Attorney General explained how the state is set to lose one of its seven congressional seats and one of its electoral votes because of the illegal aliens being included in the population count.
Marshall also noted that Alabama is not alone in suffering a potential loss in federal representation if the 2020 Census count includes illegal aliens. Ohio is also predicted to lose a U.S. House seat while Montana would fail to gain a seat it would have otherwise acquired.
