“Supreme Court to Weigh Meaning of ‘One Person One Vote’”

Adam Liptak reports for the NYT:

In the new case, the Supreme Court may decide that states can determine for themselves which standard to use. Even such a ruling could have a major impact, Professor Pildes said.

“If the court leaves it to states to decide, we could see the politics of immigration come to affect the politics of redistricting even more,” he said. “State legislatures would be given a green light to locate more power or less power in areas that have large geographic concentrations of noncitizens. Those areas would have more power if the rule is equality of residents and less power if it’s equality of eligible voters.”
