California has rebelled again and filed a lawsuit against the Trump Administration for putting a question about U.S. citizenship back onto the census form, stating that it “violates the U.S. Constitution.” Some are shocked that the people in Sacramento have actually heard of the Constitution.
Other Democrat-run states will follow. They say they believe that the question will reduce the response rate and undercount the population.
Well, the answer to that is: just make the question about U.S. citizenship the last question that is asked by the enumerator.
Simple. That’s solved.
Asking about citizenship is nothing new. The last year of Bill Clinton’s administration, his Department of Commerce asked about citizenship in their 2000 Census. Look at questions 11 through 14. It asks for detailed information that a government would want to have about residents in the country.
And just when you thought the shining about this could’t get any better, the Council onf American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), an organization that has repeatedly defended suspected radical Islamist terrorists, called the citizenship question a “white supremacist agenda.”
Wilber Ross, Secretary of the Commerce Department, said in his memorandum that asking the citizenship question will result in a way to better enforce Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act, which protects minority population voting rights. And asking respondents if they are citizens, will help the government gather currently unavailable data on the population of people who are eligible to vote.
Unavailable data. That is what the opponents don’t want us to discover. Because if the government gets an idea about citizenship numbers, it can deduce the number of non-citizens, including illegal aliens, which these opposing constituencies absolutely do not want us to know.
So politicians and political groups who have stated that they intend to ignore the law of the land when it comes to certain drug enforcement and all immigration enforcement, have now discovered the Constitution and are invoking it as a reason to not ask this simple, but highly important question. And to now have that chorus joined by a suspected terrorist supporting group is terrific.
It is likely that more and more Americans, regardless of political affiliation, are just plain getting tired of every darn thing being decried as “racism” or “white supremacy.” We’ll see.
You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life. [Winston Churchill.]
