Your help needed immediately to support Vitter Amendment!
Critical Issue: Ohio to be harmed by 2010 Census if illegal aliens included in count!
Background: U.S. Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) plans to submit an amendment to the Commerce, Justice, and Science appropriations bill to address the problem of illegal aliens skewing the 2010 Census results. The Vitter amendment would require the U.S. Census Bureau to add questions regarding immigration & citizenship status to the 2010 decennial census.
If the amendment fails, illegal aliens will be counted in the census and states that have large populations of illegals will unfairly gain Congressional seats and Ohio will likely loose one or more Congressional districts and therefore have less influence in Congress and in future presidential elections.
What should you do?
Please call Ohio's U.S. Senators' Sherrod Brown and George Voinovich and urge them to support Sen. Vitter's census amendment. Call the Washington DC office and or their district offices in Ohio.
What should you say when the staff answers the phone?
"Please ask the Senator to support Senator Vitter's amendment to the Commerce, Justice, and Science appropriations bill to protect Ohio from losing one or more Congressional districts. If illegal aliens are counted during the 2010 Census, states like California, Texas, and New York will likely gain Congressional districts and Ohio will lose one or more districts. Thank you."
