Trump directed the federal government not to count undocumented immigrants in the census when allocating districts in the House of Representatives. This directive would exclude millions of people and is in conflict with the normal interpretation of the census in the Constitution. The effect of this move would very likely shift several seats from Democratic states to Republican states. However, since the citizenship question was never included on the census, it is unclear how this move would be carried out.
