The mendacity of this administration knows no bounds, and is actively threatening the Constitution. Make no mistake, this is a calculated effort to subvert the Constitution to advantage the Republican party. It is a voter suppression technique that has been advocated by nefarious elements within the party. More importantly, it is intended to skew the count to disadvantage blue States in redistricting. Sabotaged Census: Citizenship question guarantees undercount - Baltimore Sun. Blue states sue Trump over census citizenship question - the Hill.

Yup, the question hasn't been asked since the 1950 census. Sarah Huckabee (Colonel)-Sanders is a damn lair. mad

Regardless, that is one census question, I will not answer nor permit it to be answered for me.

Should The Census Count Illegal Immigrants? - HuffPo. Here's why they're doing it:
Quote:
First, the numbers. By their figures (credited to the “Connecticut State Data Center”), if the 2010 U.S. Census counts illegal immigrants towards apportioning House seats (as it has been doing), five states would lose House seats. Missouri, Illinois, and Michigan would each lose one seat; and Ohio and New York would both lose two seats. Three states would gain seats. Arizona and Texas would each gain two seats, and Florida would gain three. All other states would remain the same.

But if illegal immigrants were excluded from the census count, only four states would lose seats. New York, New Jersey, and Ohio would each lose one, and (surprise) California would lose two. Four states would gain seats, with one going to each of Montana, Arizona, and Texas. Florida would pick up two seats.
Those were 2010 numbers. In 2020, the shift would be more significant.
