ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the plans of the U.S. House of Representatives to count illegal aliens in the census for purposes of congressional apportionment. It was reported that recently, the U.S. Senate voted to make the U.S. Census Bureau to adjust its procedures so that apportionment figures following the 1980 census would exclude illegal aliens. In 1980, an estimated two million illegal aliens were included in the count, it was estimated today that the figure have risen to over six million. The Mexican-American Legal Defense and Education Fund has characterized the efforts to exclude illegal aliens as disastrous and unconstitutional.
