Dems Spuriously Claim Census Citizenship Question Is 'Illegal'

After a 70-year hiatus, the census — a constitutionally mandated national survey commissioned by the federal government every 10 years — is officially set to renew a query of U.S. residents’ citizenship status.

In a Monday letter, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross “determined that re-instatement of a citizenship question on the 2020 decennial census is necessary to provide complete and accurate data.” He reasoned that “for the approximately 90 percent of the population who are citizens, this question is no additional imposition. And for the approximately 70 percent of non-citizens who already answer this question accurately on the [American Community Survey], the question is no additional imposition since census responses by law may only be used anonymously and for statistical purposes.”

His last point especially underscores the foolishness of the leftist-infused vitriol that quickly emerged. California’s Democrat Attorney General Xavier Becerra and Secretary of State Alex Padilla penned an op-ed in which they scorned the question as “not just a bad idea” but as “illegal.”

It’s remarkable they can even say this with a straight face considering their state perpetually breaks federal law by harboring illegal immigrants...

The Democrats are proving more every day how they are tampering with our voting process. They want the illegals voting illegally to disrupt Us citizens desires on their representation.

Rich or poor; man or woman; black, white, green or blue we are blessed to live in the USA and to be citizens of the USA.

Our franchise, the precious right as citizens to vote, is one of the cornerstones of this good fortune. We offer this special status to thousands of legal immigrants each year after they complete residency and citizenship knowledge requirements. We love and welcome legal immigrants who aspire to become naturalized citizens.

On the other hand, we have a major political party, the SocialistDemocrats, that does not value American citizenship, and is willing to lie, cheat, steal in order to manufacture votes to fraudulently elect and install its operatives in office to follow their party line in lockstep. They oppose an accurate count for partisan reasons.

We will necessarily have more people residing in the USA than are citizens, legally and illegally. An accurate census of citizens is necessary to redistribute seats in the House of Representatives, just as we have done since the first one over 200 years ago.
