Fairness in Representation Act will ensure fair congressional apportionment (Rep. Virginia Foxx)



That is not fair and equal representation in Congress.

Congress should not ignore the way that illegal immigration is altering how many seats each state has in Congress.  This legislation will help equip the country with the necessary data to distribute seats among the states without the process being unfairly affected by the inclusion of illegal immigrants.

The census is a lynchpin in the proper functioning of America’s democratic and legislative process.  Ensuring that the final tally is accurate and fair will mean everyone’s vote counts equally when congressional districts are re-distributed and redrawn every ten years.
