Groups sue to block Trump's order for citizenship data collection

Immigrant rights groups sued the Trump administration Friday over the president’s plan to collect citizenship data through federal agencies, which will then share that information to states, arguing the move is unlawful and discriminatory.

The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Maryland, asks the judge to block President Trump’s executive order issued in July.

The groups say the data is going to disadvantage minorities and non-citizens when lawmakers draw new congressional district maps. They charge the move is motivated by racial animus, upending federal law and violating constitutional rights.

“Voters will be denied their constitutionally guaranteed rights to equitable political representation based on actual population,” read the complaint.

They are not citizens and they have no constitutional rights. They do not have constitutionally guaranteed rights or entitled to government benefits.

Tomorrow is Constitution Day. All lawmakers should be forced to read it and attend classes taught by Ted Cruz and Newt Gingrich.

Northwest Woodsman: Seems to me that president Trump is trying to prevent voter fraud and obviously, that does not sit well with Marxist democrats. If it were not for fraudulent voting, they would be out of office permanently. That would be a very good thing.
