Redistricting occurs at both the state level for state legislature seats and the federal level for U.S. House districts, known as congressional apportionment. The order would affect the latter.
Trump's memorandum, sent out by the White House Press Office on Tuesday, reads, "I have accordingly determined that respect for the law and protection of the integrity of the democratic process warrant the exclusion of illegal aliens from the apportionment base, to the extent feasible and to the maximum extent of the President's discretion under the law."...... The president signed the order on Tuesday at 1:10 p.m. ET in the Oval Office.

I thought this is what the Supreme Court case was about that Roberts ruled against. It still wouldn’t be in time for the 2020 Election.
If the founding fathers counted slaves as 3/5 of a free person for purposes of representation, then any liberal judge will allow the counting of illegal aliens for purposes of representation.
Well I can guess what the next liberal outrage is going to be .....
I’m not sure I understand this. How will they know by the census who is illegal or not? The citizenship question is not allowed on the census I thought.
Good for him. They are here illegally so our congressmen and women do not represent the illegals.
They would have to use population estimates of illegals, in order for this to work.
I expect a judge to issue an injunction. But assuming this could ever happen, they would have to use estimates of population of illegals, compared to what the actual count of population was in the census. That right there could be challenged in court as well, the idea that we do what is supposed to be an actual count of people, but then back out estimated numbers, as opposed to an actual count of certain people, for reapportionment.
