Sen. Doug Jones (D-Mountain Brook) Monday appeared to endorse counting illegal aliens in the 2020 Census. In a tweet, Jones said: "This is just real simple folks: we have to count everybody - EVERYBODY. To do otherwise is a disservice to Alabama and America." Congressman Mo Brooks (R-Huntsville) and state attorney general Steve Marshall are suing to require that the Census includes a citizenship question. Brooks and Marshall say including illegals in the count would cost Alabama a seat in Congress and an electoral vote. States with large numbers of illegal immigrants, like California, would be the most likely to benefit at Alabama's expense, Brooks has said.
