The United States government is mandated by the United States Constitution to take a census every ten years in Article 1, Section 2 for the purpose of determining how many representatives each state will have in the US House. Only citizens can vote in the elections, so it seems to make sense that it would be a good idea to know how many citizens there are in each state.
According to the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) and one liberal judge it is discriminatory to ask on the census form if you are or are not a citizen. It is not discriminatory, apparently, to ask such questions about your sex, race, or national origin.
Lawyers tapped for the questioning process represent 18 Marxist/Progressive (Democrat)t-run cities and states who are suing the Commerce Department for reinstating a citizenship question to the 2020 census. They claim the question is a political ploy to stop non-citizens from participating in the census, which could affect government funding for those areas. I would think that would be good.
The citizen question will help determine the number of representatives each state will have as mentioned above. That number could very likely determine who controls the House. Also, by knowing how many citizens there are in the country and in different states and districts, a comparison can be made comparing votes cast to number of citizens. The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) have been arguing for years that voter fraud is a very minor problem if it exists at all. The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) have done absolutely everything they can to conceal the widespread voter fraud that actually exists. This is just another ploy and it is as critical to the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) to have illegal aliens vote as is to prohibit any proof of citizenship when registering or identification when voting.
The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) have stated they want open borders allowing anybody into our country. They have stated they do not want an accurate count of the number of citizens in the country vs the number of total people, and they have stated it is discriminatory to ask for proof of citizenship at registration and identification when voting. What the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) are really saying is that they want anybody and everybody who will vote for them to be able to vote whether they are citizens or not, alive or dead, voting once or numerous times, or a human or animal.
The Supreme Court will be making a ruling shortly. It would appear the Supreme Court will uphold the Untied States Constitution and say that yes, we should know if a person is or is not a citizen. Now you know why the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) were so willing to totally destroy the lives of Justice Kavanaugh and his family. Yes, it was for power, so they can fundamentally transform the United States into a Marxist totalitarian state.
