A 2nd federal court judge says a question on census about citizenship is illegal, even though there is past precedence. The reasoning was because some people that are here illegally might be reluctant to take part in the census. In that case a lower population number could reduce federal funds to states with large illegal populations. Also the number of representatives each state is entitled too based on population could be reduced.
So, it’s okay for sanctuary states like CA to receive federal funds for education, welfare and highways based on the number of illegal aliens living here? This makes no sense to me, they are here illegally, they are not entitled to representation or federal funding for anything except perhaps deportation.
Rep. Joaquin Castro-D TX, Chair of the Hispanic Caucus, said asking such a question is racist and intolerant! He says Trump is politicizing the census. So, he agrees with the judges decision. In effect illegals are coming closer to getting the vote. Non-citizens would be able to shape our future? If it was up to CA they would have the vote already and so would 17 year old kids. But, that’s nutty CA.
Rep. Castro-D is a clown. He should have excused himself from comment because of his obvious conflict of interest. He’s an advocate for Hispanics, legal or otherwise, even though he took an oath to represent ALL the citizens, not just some and certainly not non-citizens.
The last time a citizenship question was asked on the census was in the 1940’s, according to Castro. Oddly, he tried to connect this 2020 census citizenship question to the segregation issue back in the 40’s. Segregation was illegal and a completely separate issue. It also involved democrat controlled southern states, which is ironic.
