President Trump append Executive directives on Tuesday not including illegal people who enter USA through the back door from being counted when drawing Congressional district maps.
"President Trunp on Tuesday signed an executive order to prevent illegal immigrants from being counted for the purposes of re-drawing congressional districts after the 2020 census,” reports Fox News“A White House official said it clarifies that those in the country illegally would not be included for the redrawing process — known as apportionment — of congressional districts after the census. Census counts are used to determine the allocation of seats in the House of Representatives, the number of electors in the Electoral College and hundreds of billion dollars of federal spending.”

The Law says, "Excluding illegal aliens for the purpose of apportionment reflects a better understanding of our Constitution and democratic principles,” said one administration official.

The decision says that the Constitution “does not specifically define which persons must be included in the apportionment base.”

"Although the Constitution requires the ‘persons in each State, excluding Indians not taxed,’ to be enumerated in the census, that requirement has never been understood to include in the apportionment base every individual physically present within a State’s boundaries at the time of the census."
