Exodus from Illinois Assures the Loss Of Two Seats in Congress


An Illinois congressman said the latest census estimates pretty much solidified Illinois will be losing two congressional seats when the 2020 census is completed.

“I’m not surprised that Illinois is now looking to move from possibly losing two seats to almost assuredly losing two seats,” Rep. Rodney Davis, R-Taylorville, said.

The census estimates released Thursday showed population losses in 86 of Illinois’ 102 counties.

Overall, the report shows the state has lost more than 45,000 people in a year, resulting in the fifth straight year of a declining population.

Davis said he’s not surprised by the estimates and added it’s likely the state’s high taxes that have driven people out.

“We’ve got to make sure we do everything we can to put more money in the pockets of families instead of taking it out of their pocketbooks and otherwise, we’re going to continue to see the population leave,” Davis said.

Davis is concerned about Democrats having super-majorities in both chambers of the legislature and a Democratic governor because the state is in charge of redrawing congressional maps.

    People vote with their feet. It’s happening in New York and California too. Every state from which people are fleeing is under Democrat control.
