In Vote Thieves, geographer Orlando J. Rodriguez shows how our current method of apportionment creates an incentive for illegal immigration and polarizes our political system. Historically it caused the end of the Federalist Party, bolstered slavery, disenfranchised African Americans after Reconstruction, fostered segregation in the South, denied voting rights to women, and disenfranchised voters in the presidential election of 2000. Since 1989, six congressional bills have attempted to change the population basis for apportionment; none passed.

My book, Vote Thieves: Illegal Immigration, Redistricting, and Presidential Elections, argues for changing our basis of apportionment from total population to voters. Might this provide an impetus for true immigration reform if states such as Texas and California were to lose congressional representation because illegal immigrants are excluded from apportionment?

Every ten years political representation in the U.S.House of Representatives is redistributed (reapportioned) among the fifty states. The process begins anew with the 2020 census, which will count the nation's population as the basis for representation in Congress.  The national census has a history wrought with failures and inaccurate counts. In Vote Thieves, geographer Orlando J. Rodriguez shows how our current method of apportionment creates an incentive for illegal immigration and polarizes our political system. This issue affects all U.S. residents--legal and illegal alike.  Recent history has triggered a growing suspicion among Americans that their political system is flawed. Vote Thieves explains a singular flaw that voters suspect but cannot put into words and gives them the information they need to petition for a more responsive political system.
