The Supreme Court has a no-brainer of a case before them, and we expect the court to rule 5-4 in favor of allowing the Trump administration to add a citizenship question to the 2020 U.S. Census. We say 5-4, because we know there is no hope on earth that the court’s liberal justices will abandon the #Resistance in their time of need. When it comes down to choosing between the Constitution and “what feels right,” the court’s liberals inevitably go with the latter. This is why they are such a menace to U.S. law, but that’s perhaps a topic for another day.
The topic for today is the case at hand, where liberals are trying to block the Commerce Department from adding a very simple question to the 2020 Census: Are you currently a United States citizen?
The New York Times explains why liberals think this question is so ruinous to our democracy:
The Supreme Court will hear extended arguments on Tuesday on whether the Trump administration may add a question about citizenship to the 2020 census form that will be sent to every household in the nation.
Critics say that adding the question would undermine the accuracy of the census because both legal and unauthorized immigrants might refuse to fill out the forms. By one government estimate, about 6.5 million people might decide not to participate.
That could reduce Democratic representation when congressional districts are allocated in 2021 and affect the distribution of hundreds of billions of dollars in federal spending. Courts have found that Arizona, California, Florida, Illinois, New York and Texas could risk losing seats in the House, and that several states could lose federal money.
There you have it: it could “reduce Democratic representation” in Congress. States with enormous illegal alien populations are worried that the federal government is about to find them out and strip them of representation they have no business having. Tell us: What possible sense does it make to have non-citizens…no, hold on, because that doesn’t even say it. What possible sense does it make to have people WHO DON’T BELONG IN THIS COUNTRY with representatives in Washington, D.C.? What possible sense does it make pouring millions of federal dollars into areas that are only getting that money because they refuse to enforce – or even HELP enforce – U.S. immigration law?
Furthermore, what possible sense does it make to block the U.S. government from figuring out how many of its citizens…are actually citizens?
The Supreme Court needs to get this one right. Any ruling not in favor of the Trump administration is one based on feelings, not on law and fact.
