The battle lines are being drawn now between Trump and the sanctuary cities and states. Mayor Rahm Emanuel is already vowing to defy Trump. Sanctuary cities and states are skewing the Electoral Vote toward the liberal big states…countradicting the intent of the Constitution. The proportion of total 538 electors is determined by total population (legal + illegal), that is, 1 elector for each member of the U.S. House plus 1 elector per U.S. senator. DC gets 3 electors according to 23rd Amendment, which is too many in my opinion. So, without illegals actually voting, without requiring them to be naturalized or green carded, the presence of illegal families skews both the House and the Electoral College to the left.
In other words, so-called “progressives” know they will eventually dominate the federal government unless there is a law or constitutional amendment that changes apportionment of House and Electoral College. The proportion of the 538 Electors and 438 U.S. Representatives allocated for states which are not sanctuaries for illegal aliens is progressively reduced.
I would normally favor states rights versus the federal government. But in this case, due to a unanimous Supreme Court ruling, the value of citizenship itself, the value of your vote, is being progressively diminished by control-hungry politicians and immigration policy. If federal immigration policy is not applied equally across the states and the Electoral College rules remain as they are, then the exact situation that our founders and framers designed the Electoral College to prevent will be enabled instead… the heavily populated states will dominated the nation.
