Posted on 02/10/2019 10:59:56 AM PST by E. Pluribus Unum
A federal judge ruled on Friday the US government can include citizenship question on the US Census. It makes complete sense so Democrats are against it.
It also affects how much federal funding the sanctuary communities will receive from American taxpayers. So, of course, Democrats are against this.
A federal judge ruled late Friday she is unconvinced of an immediate need to block a citizenship question from the 2020 census over privacy concerns.
US District Judge Dabney Friedrich declined to issue a preliminary injunction requested by a privacy and civil liberties nonprofit group, the Electronic Privacy Information Center.
The group argued that the US Census Bureau was required to complete a privacy impact assessment before Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross announced the addition of the question.
In response, the government acknowledged it is required to update its privacy impact assessments, but must do so before collecting census responses, rather than before deciding what questions would appear.

This is only one judge. Apparently a whole bunch jumped on the bandwagon and it is headed for the USSC.
This would be great news if it were the last word. I doubt it will be.
The far left has been “triggered”. Now they start their Nazi style death threats. It appears the “democrats” don’t want their “11 million” number going in the toilet and the true numbers of illegals aliens coming out.
I'm going over to Twitter to watch the splodey heads...
AAARRRRRGGGHHHHH let's go overturn some cars and s--t!

“SPLODY HEADS” Alert
a census which counts citizens! What is the world coming to?
I would not be surprised if its up around 50 million
The Question was there and Obongo removed it. Trump puts it back
and it turns into this big controversy. Ridiculous but it’s where we are.
What happens if people either refuse to fill out the census or just check the box saying they are citizens when they are not? Is it enforceable, and even if it is, will they have the manpower to do so?
Best news of the day!
Any sightings of RGB?
Will Ruthie be opining on the matter?
I have heard that if only citizens are counted, the reapportionment of Congressional seats will shift about 20 seats out of blue states and into red states.
Where Roberts will join his leftist comrades in derailing it..
Well. Obama was the emporer. They view trump as the deposed. Voters are clueless now congress is led by clueless people making up the rules as they go
On the other side of the same coin, there is certain and identifiable damage to US citizens if this question is NOT asked. It is the census numbers that determines the number of representatives in the House of Representatives.
Every region with a collective of illegal, foreign invaders being counted will be assigned more House of Reps. Screw the rest of the stable numbered citizen regions without invaders being counted as their representation votes in congress will be watered down by the towering increase of rep votes by those sanctuary invader district.
This entire illegals thing is ONLY and ALL ABOUT POWER. It has zero decimal zero to do with race, ethnicity, children or any of the emotional trigger lines put out by the MSM and Democrats.
