Illinois GOP Members of Congress React to Democrats Remap

A press release from all of Illinois Republican Members of Congress:

Statement of the Republican U.S. House Members from Illinois on Democrats’ Proposed Redistricting Map

The Republican members of the Illinois Congressional delegation today issued the following statement in response to the release of a proposal to re-draw the boundaries of Congressional districts in Illinois.

“Under the cover of darkness, the Democrats in Springfield proposed a new Congressional map that was drawn without any input from Republicans or any consideration for the hours of testimony offered at public hearings this spring.

The new congressional map proposed by Illinois Democrats radically alters current boundaries.

“We are very concerned that this proposal does not fairly represent the significant growth that has occurred in the Hispanic community.”The proposed map carves up towns and communities with little regard to the values and beliefs of the people who live there.

“This proposal appears to be little more than an attempt to undo the results of the elections held just six months ago and we will take whatever steps necessary to achieve a map that more fairly represents the people of Illinois – they deserve nothing less.”
