Federal funding and apportionment of seats in the U.S. House of Representatives are based on a Census of the population every 10 years. Not counting the estimated 12 million immigrants who are here illegally would send less money to states and cities that have large numbers of undocumented residents and could shift political clout elsewhere.
"We know it will hurt a lot of cities," Rivera says.
That's the bargaining chip boycott supporters are using to lobby lawmakers to issue temporary work visas for undocumented workers and give them a way to become citizens.
The call for a boycott "may be well-intended but misguided and ultimately irresponsible," says Arturo Vargas, executive director of the National Association of Latino Elected Officials and a member of a Census advisory panel.
"There is a sense of desperation and frustration among some immigrant rights leaders" that Congress has not taken action on such issues, Vargas says. They should give the new administration a chance, he says.

As soon as they cross the border, their arrogance and delusional sense of importance and entitlement ceases to take a siesta. Imagine what a decent, lawful place mexico could become if half of their illegal alien population squatting in the US had grown a pair and started demanding to be treated like human beings BEFORE crossing the border into the US.

Who cares if they boycott the census? There will only be enough federal funding for those actually counted. How stupid can they be?

Boycott our schools too, they will shoot themselves in the foot. Not attending means less money and more resentment. I hope they do it, while they are at it make sure they march in the streets and wave their old Countries flag in our faces screaming obscenities in a language we don't understand. We will have the welcome mat ready for you.
