Bill Sponsored by Indiana Rep. Messer Would End ‘Illegal Immigrant Bonus’ in Grants

Federal funding based on population would exclude illegal immigrants from the count under a bill proposed by a congressman from Indiana.

The proposal drafted by Rep. Luke Messer (R-Ind.) would count only citizens and legal permanent residents for more than 130 national programs that use U.S. Census Bureau data in formulas to apportion funding to state or local governments by the federal government.
