Are illegal immigrants the new Hitler? Perhaps! Are they the go-to bogeyman for whatever ails us? Probably!
Issue ONE: Apparently the Census data was released today, and crummy crazy-person states are poised to pick up like a million seats in Congress because everyone is leaving New York and moving to Utah. (What?) Maybe it’s for the warm weather or open spaces. Maybe it’s to get away from traffic or to find cheaper housing.
Louisiana Sen. David Vitter (R) blamed illegal immigrants for his state’s having lost a congressional seat in the Census Bureau’s reapportionment.
Vitter said that Louisiana had lost a seat because other states were welcoming of illegal immigrants, who were in turn counted in population totals used to determine the number of seats in Congress each state is allowed in the next 10 years.
Oh right, I’m sure it was the illegals. I’m sure it has nothing to do with the devastating hurricane that wiped out an entire massive city in Louisiana! It probably has nothing to do with all of said city’s residents picking up and moving to Houston (which, incidentally, is in one of the state’s that is gaining seats in Congress. You’re probably right, David Vitter; it’s probably because of the illegal immigrants.
