President Trump intended to put a vital question on the upcoming, 2020 census. Democrats, as usual, sued to stop him. In a shocking move, the Supreme Court voted against Trump and stopped the question from being added. The president, undeterred, vows to move forward.
Democrats were terrified when they learned that President Trump wanted to put a simple question on the 2020 census: “Are you an American citizen?”
Seems like an obvious addition, right? I mean, shouldn’t that kind of question be on there already?
But it made Democrats very worried. Why? According to some reports, there are an estimated 11 million illegal aliens living in the United States. That number is big enough to have dramatic impacts on our census results.
The census determines how voting districts are laid out. It determines how many electoral votes a state gets, also how many representatives they get in the House. The census can also determine how much and what kind of federal aid is provided to states.
Clearly, you can see the left’s scheme. They wanted to use the high population of illegals in Democrat-dominated states to pump up their numbers. Democrats have encouraged illegal immigration for years, knowing that most of these aliens end up in California, New York, and other areas they want to dominate.
Those extra people numbered in the census will give them an artificial advantage. But if there was a question that exposed the truth—that many living in these areas are not Americans—it changes everything.
Everyone that fills out a census form that is not a citizen will not be counted toward our population. It would seriously hurt the left’s efforts to control our country illegally. So, they launched a lawsuit to stop Trump. Once again, the Democrats prove they are the party of lawlessness.
The case was taken all the way to the Supreme Court, where John Roberts sided with the liberal justices to knock down Trump’s question. Shocking, in my opinion. Now, the president is fighting back.
President Donald Trump proclaimed Wednesday his administration is “absolutely moving forward” with plans to add a question regarding citizenship to the 2020 census, branding statements to the contrary from administration officials as false.
“The News Reports about the Department of Commerce dropping its quest to put the Citizenship Question on the Census is incorrect or, to state it differently, FAKE!” President Trump wrote on Twitter. “We are absolutely moving forward, as we must, because of the importance of the answer to this question.”
President Donald Trump had said after the high court’s decision last week that he would ask his attorneys about possibly delaying next spring’s decennial census until the Supreme Court could revisit the matter.

The president is planning on delaying the census until the Supreme Court can look at new evidence provided by his attorneys. He is exploring all options to ensure this question remains on the census.
Only Democrats—and illegals—would not want this question on the census. We’re talking about a U.S. census. Its goal is to measure the population of our citizens—not the population of people here illegally.
Illegal aliens are a burden to our country. They jeopardize our jobs and national security. Yet Democrats want to treat them better than real citizens. It’s a crime.
President Trump refuses to let the Supreme Court’s shameful ruling give the left a win. Democrats want to undermine your will and freedom to pander to illegals. They care more about their support than yours.
But we need to let the president know we’re on his side. SHARE this story to let him know that we want the citizenship question on the census. The future of our country depends on it.
