Federal judge lets Alabama suit over Census proceed

June 6, 2019

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — A federal judge says Alabama can proceed with its lawsuit trying to block people from being counted in the 2020 Census if they’re living in the country without documentation.

U.S. District Judge David Proctor of Birmingham ruled Wednesday that the state and U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks of Huntsville have legal standing to sue.

Proctor also wrote that he isn’t expressing an opinion on claims that the state could be harmed by counting people who are living in the country illegally.

Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall says in a statement that he’s glad the judge refused to dismiss the lawsuit.

The lawsuit claims another state could gain a congressional seat at Alabama’s expense if the Census count includes large numbers of people who are living in the United States without permission.

1. States that welcome immigrants vs states that

arrest them. Arkansas cat have it both ways. If they want an additional seat to Congress they need to attract and retain new residents.

They are trying to increase their population numbers the I'd fashioned way, through forced pregnancies and banned abortions. The state has also made sure that their unlivable wage structure, poor education system, lack of healthcare, a militarized police force and lack of social services make it an undesirable place for newcomers. The are anti immigrant as well... What's not to love?

As I to make up for all their shortcomings they want to lower the bar for everyone else and drag other states down to their level rather than change a thing.
