The Washington-based Center for Immigration Studies released a report last week examining the impact of legal and illegal immigration on the apportionment of seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and votes in the Electoral College. It predicts Georgia could lose a U.S. congressional seat.
The Center notes that House seats and electoral votes are based on total state populations, not citizenship. By adding significantly to the population of some states compared to others, legal and illegal immigration reduces the political power of low-immigration states, which are comprised mostly of U.S. citizens, and redistributes it to high-immigration states.
