Supreme Court reject request to bring back congressional seat
BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — The Supreme Court has rejected Louisiana's request to bring back the congressional seat taken from the state as a result of the 2010 census.
Louisiana claims the census unfairly included undocumented immigrants in each state's population count.
The lawsuit asked the highest court to order the federal government to re-calculate house seats and base it only on legal residents.
The Supreme Court isn't commenting on the decision.
