Census, Redistricting, Immigration and Voter Suppression

Think about the coming redistricting as a result of the recent Census.

Imagine that many states that will gain a lot more Congressional weight through the Census results inevitable redistricting suddenly decided to chase a particular growing population from their state with certain targeted policies in order to achieve the goal of keeping these newly minted Congressional heavy weights in the hands of a political party that would otherwise be losing grip in the future.

And just imagine if they were already doing it to a large degree and with great success.

I guess you do not have to imagine it all, eh?
