Should Question of Citizenship Appear on Census?

Is there anything wrong with being asked if you are a US citizen or not?

Many job applications require answering a question about citizenship, but then many employers also require drug testing, something else Democrats are against.

Not only are Democrats against asking questions about citizenship during police stops and arrests, but they also oppose the question appearing on the 2020 Census.

When the Trump administration put the question on the Census, an Obama-appointed judge blocked the question from appearing on the Census.

Trending: 16th Amendment as written: no tax on wages or salaries

So, Rasmussen Reports asked likely voters how they feel about having a question of citizenship appear on the Census.

Rasmussen Reports – 66% Favor Citizenship Question on Census – A federal judge in New York has ruled against the Trump administration’s attempt to restore a citizenship question to the 2020 census, even though it’s a question most Americans want to ask.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 66% of American Adults think the U.S. Census should ask respondents whether they are citizens of the United States. Twenty-three percent (23%) disagree, but 11% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

The question requested by the U.S. Justice Department – “Is this person a citizen of the United States?” – has not been asked as a regular U.S. Census question since 1950. Since then, it has only been asked of a sample of households. But opponents of the question say illegal immigrants would avoid the census for fear of being caught. The State of California has challenged the question in court, saying an undercount of illegal immigrants would affect the number of seats a state is allocated in the U.S. House of Representatives…

So what if illegal aliens are afraid of the question?

They should not be here in the US in the first place and the only thing they should fear id being caught, detained and deported back to their home countries.

According to the US Constitution, American citizens have the rights to say what happens in their country, not illegal aliens.

However, many Democrats, including many judges, believe that illegal aliens have MORE rights here in America than legal citizens do and I for one am tired of it.
