I'm not up on this but it reminds me of

the 3/5 of a person argument where slaves who couldn't vote were still part of the equation when it came to determining how many representatives a state could send to H of R. I know that's not a perfect analogy but, IMO, "one person, one vote" only makes sense only in regards to eligible voters but could be expanded to include their dependents. It should never include those here illegally or those here on temporary visas. I'd hope the court's decision doesn't do that.

Alito's statement leaves the door open

for Republicans to change the argument/wording and bring it back for review.
