Congresswoman Virginia Foxx introduced a bill Wednesday that requires the Census Bureau to determine the number of illegal immigrants in the United States in the upcoming census.


The motion is called the Fairness in Representation Act.

Foxx said that getting an accurate number of illegal immigrants in the country is a matter of equity and justice for American citizens and those legally present in the U.S.

Foxx said her legislation will try to prevent unfair distortions in the distribution of House of Representative seats among the 50 states caused by large populations of illegal immigrants in certain areas.
