The 14th Amendment section 2 does state that apportionment shall be made in accordance with the number of persons, not citizens. Section 3 says that apportionment will be reduced for denying the right to vote to males over 21, except for Indians not taxed. That section was never enforced anyway and blacks after Reconstruction ended were denied the right to vote until the 1960s.
A new constitutional amendment is needed stating that the apportionment of Congressional seats shall be in accordance with the number of citizens eligible to vote, as recorded by the Census.
