Democrats killed a Senate effort to stop illegal immigrants and other noncitizens from being counted in the U.S. Census in which new congressional seats are created in states with growing populations.

With so many Americans fleeing blue states rotting under weak leadership to more affordable and thriving red states, the counting of non-citizens will allow cities like Denver to keep their congressional representatives, and maybe even grow an additional seat by 2030.

Senate Republicans voted to attach the measure to the $460 billion spending package that passed on Friday, but it failed in a mostly party line vote of 51-45.

PeakNation™ will recall that Denver Mayor Johnston is making budget cuts and staff layoffs zeroing out staff hours to make up for the millions it’s spending to house and feed upwards of 40,000 border crossers.

And despite the impact on local taxpayers, Johnson is plotting to spend more than $100 million to establish an intake empire to continue housing and feeding open border crossers for the next several years.

Democrats have every intention of counting those non-citizens as voting Americans and using them to create more Democrat congressional Districts.

And anyone who dares to try and exclude them from the census will be called anti-migrant. Isn’t that right, Kyle Clark?

U.S. Sen. Bill Hagerty of Tennessee who sponsored the measure told Fox News Digital that Democrat mayors in sanctuary cities have been accepting of the migrants surge in the hopes of gaining more representatives in the U.S. House and Electoral College when redistricting rolls around.

“They are seeing people leave their state. They’re seeing the potential of the next census to lose congressional districts and electoral votes. I think most people in America are shocked to find out that we count the presence of illegal immigrants in determining the allocation of congressional districts and electoral votes,” Hagerty said.

Colorado’s Democrat U.S. Sens. Michael Bennet and John Hickenlooper voted to kill the measure.

So, without a Republican Congress and Republican president, nearly eight million of Biden’s border crossers will be counted in the next census with the expectation that sanctuary cities with significant non-citizen populations will get more votes in Congress.
