The Shadow People

It is significant and magnificent that the U.S. Census Bureau estimates added 30,000 people to Milwaukee's population total.

Milwaukee's population, like all large U.S. cities, has a significant number of undocumented immigrants living in the shadows, very much unwilling to be noticed by nose counters or other government agents.

Congrats and kudos to Mayor Tom Barrett's team for using demolition records and energy bills to compile the data to convince the Census Bureau to incease its Milwaukee count.

The city's population is up, and congressional representation is based on population. Can we please have another congress person now?
