Trump Says Census Without Citizenship is ‘Meaningless’

In preparing the 2020 Census, President Trump wanted to make sure that it included a question on citizenship.

That alarmed Democrats who challenged the inclusion of a citizenship question and got an Obama appointed federal judge to block the inclusion of the question, saying it was unconstitutional.

With somewhere between 15 million to 20 million illegal aliens living in the US, it’s important for our government to learn just how many there really is, providing the tell the truth when filling out the Census.

Yesterday, President Trump tweeted that excluding the citizenship question makes the Census ‘meaningless’.

Fox News – Trump rips ‘radical’ Democrats, says census ‘meaningless’ without citizenship question – President Trump blasted “radical” Democrats who have pushed back against his administration’s bid to include a citizenship question on the 2020 census.

“Can you believe that the Radical Left Democrats want to do our new and very important Census Report without the all important Citizenship Question. Report would be meaningless and a waste of the $Billions (ridiculous) that it costs to put together!” the president tweeted Monday morning.

The Trump administration moved to add the question to the 2020 census. But it’s faced opposition from Democrats who argue it would make immigrants less likely to respond to the constitutionally mandated tally and therefore render it less accurate…

Why is a citizenship question suddenly unconstitutional when it has been done for years?

I have copies of pages from various Census taken many years ago that had a question about race and citizenship.

From what I’ve been able to ascertain, I can find nothing unconstitutional about including a question on citizenship on the Census.

The real truth is that Democrats don’t want the government to know who is not a citizen and found a federal judge who would rule based on political agenda instead of ruling on the Constitution and law and they did – US District Judge Jesse Furman.
