Trump signs memo aimed at excluding illegal migrants from redrawn districts

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump on Tuesday signed a memorandum that aims to prevent migrants who are in the United States illegally being counted when U.S. congressional voting districts are redrawn in the next round of redistricting.

A White House memo signed by Trump said it would be U.S. policy to exclude from the count used for congressional districting migrants who are not in the country legally.
