Nancy Pelosi, a useful idiot of the Marxist/Progressive camp since she does not have the intellectual capacity to understand any agenda, condemned the Trump Administration’s announcement that they will be reinstating the citizenship question on the 2020 census to help enforce the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
“The Trump Administration’s late-night announcement of a new citizenship question violates the clear constitutional mandate to provide an accurate count of all people living in the United States,” she said in a statement Tuesday. Of course, a citizenship question is not new but has used in some form or another on far more census questionnaires than not.
“This detrimental change will inject fear and distrust into vulnerable communities,” she added, “and cause traditionally undercounted communities to be even further under-represented, financially excluded and left behind.” First of all this is simply conjecture on her part and secondly it gives data that would indicate how many citizens live in an area so there would be some means to measure how many people are illegally registered to vote and how many non-citizens are voting. We know a large base of the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) voters are not citizens and are not eligible to vote.
She called the decision “disturbing” and said Trump “pushed this decision as a dog-whistle tactic to raise funds for his campaign committee.”
Pelosi claimed, “the Trump Administration put politics over the Constitution and, in so doing, ignored the consensus views of former Census Bureau directors of both parties and the conclusions of the Census Bureau’s own recent study, which warns of ‘an unprecedented groundswell in confidential and data sharing concerns, particularly among immigrants or those who live with immigrants.’”
This is what the Constitution states about conducting a census:
In Article 1, Section 2, the Constitution includes the phrase:
[An] Enumeration shall be made within three Years after the first Meeting of the Congress of the United States, and within every subsequent Term of ten Years, in such Manner as they shall by Law direct.
The final bill that became law as directed by the Constitution, Statute 2 of March 1, 1790, provided that census marshals and assistants be appointed. The marshals were directed to:
cause the number of the inhabitants within their respective districts to be taken; omitting in such enumeration Indians not taxed, and distinguishing free persons, including those bound to service for a term of years, from all others; distinguishing also the sexes and colours of free persons, and the free males of sixteen years and upwards from those under that age.
Indians not taxed were not counted, while slaves and indentured servants were distinguished because even though they could not vote, a proportion of each was considered for purposes of representation. The objectives of this law are in total contradiction to what Nancy and the Marxist/Progressives want which is to have the number of representatives in congress based on people who are in the country illegally and according to law should be deported. Indians not taxed were not counted and illegals should not be counted for any purpose. This is the law that was adopted as per the direction of the Constitution.
