Republicans May NEVER Win The House Again Due To Immigration, California Set To Gain ELEVEN Seats. According to a new report from the Center for immigration studies, states that voted for Trump in 2016 are set to lose 24 house seats and electoral college votes and solidly blue states are set to gain 19 seats and EC votes.
If this trend continues Republicans as we know it may never win the house again and possibly the presidency as a disproportionate amount of power will be handed to heavily blue states.
The GOP has two choices, cater to immigrants or restrict immigration and it seems that Trump has opted for the latter. According to report form the New York Times immigration is down 70% across the board. Trump’s efforts on adding the citizenship question also show that he has been paying attention to these massive demographic changes.
This is likely why California is a “sanctuary state.” See House seats are not based on how many citizens live in your area but how many people, regardless of whether they can vote or not.
This means that blue states essentially convert non citizens into legal votes for the president and for policy through the House and electoral college.
Trump is certainly resisting and it seems that if his plans continue he may avert the rapid shift which is costing republicans representation in congress.
