It seems so obvious that you would want to know the count of citizens in your country when you are taking a census. At least it seems obvious if your goal is to run a nation for the good of your citizens and not for those who are intentional law breakers. A nation such as the United States can only exist because the citizens voluntarily adhere to the laws of the land. If every citizen of any country determined they would not comply with the laws of their country, a chaotic situation would occur, and the country would no longer function. Those individuals who voluntarily break the laws of the United States by willfully and knowingly violate our immigration laws are actually bringing about the chaotic situation that destroys a nation.
Perhaps the most critical and thus confrontational element of asking if you are a citizen on our census form is that the representation within the House of Representatives is based on the census count. Those who are criminally living within our borders should not be counted when representation and other such matters are considered. The Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party will disagree with me, not because they have the good of the United States at heart, but because they place their insatiable appetite for power and the need to transform the United States to a Marxist totalitarian state above the American principles of freedom and independence.
This is a quick take on the arguments made before the Supreme Court concerning this question of whether or not we should know how many citizens we have.
The Supreme Court appeared willing to allow the Trump administration to add a question asking every American household to identify citizens and non citizens on the 2020 census.
The court appeared split along ideological lines during oral arguments Tuesday. The court’s more conservative justices, including Chief Justice John Roberts, noted that the census asks many questions beyond simply counting people and that it didn’t appear unreasonable to add a citizenship question. The court’s more liberal justices noted that Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross had failed to ever articulate a rationale for why adding the citizenship question was the best way to go about getting the data the Trump administration wanted.
The Census Bureau’s own experts estimate that an additional 5.8% of households with a non citizen are unlikely to respond on their own to the census, which goes out to every American household just once each decade. That translates to approximately 6.5 million people.
