Immigration to Factor in Census and Redistricting

Here are the numbers for the census. The South and West have swelled in population, but FOX news has a front page story about something I noticed in the data- much of the gain in population has come from states with the most growth in illegal aliens. Paradoxically, districts flooded with illegal aliens get more Congressman per legal voter because apportionment is determined by the number of persons counted, not legal residents counted.

Is this the new incarnation of the 3/5ths rule?
