    DOJ says citizenship question being dropped from 2020 Census

    DOJ says citizenship question being dropped from 2020 Census: NY attorney general's office

    By Gregg Re | Fox News


    White House 'disappointed' by Supreme Court decision on census citizenship question

    It's 'common sense' for the government to know whether or not residents are citizens, says Mercedes Schlapp, White House director of strategic communications.

    The New York attorney general’s office said Tuesday the Justice Department has decided to print the 2020 Census without the citizenship question sought by the Trump administration.

    The U.S. Supreme Court ruled last week that the question couldn't be added for now. President Trump had tweeted that he had asked lawyers if the count can be delayed until the court can reevaluate the matter.


    But experts responded that any delay could gum up the U.S. Census Bureau's finely calibrated timetable for the 10-year count.


    Monday was the deadline to start printing the 600 million documents that will be mailed to 130 million households for next April's census count.


    For months, the Trump administration had argued that the courts needed to decide quickly whether the citizenship question could be added to the 2020 census because of the looming deadline.


    "I think it's very important to find out if somebody is a citizen as opposed to an illegal," Trump told reporters Monday.

    "There's a big difference to me between being a citizen of the United States and being an illegal."


    Julie Iriondo, a bureau spokeswoman, said early Monday that she didn't know if any printing schedule changes had been decided.


    From a logistical standpoint, any delay "would be a nightmare," said John Thompson, who served as Census Bureau director during President Barack Obama's second term.

    The bureau is already in the process of signing almost 250 office leases across the U.S. and has hired 1,500 specialists who partner with community organizations to encourage people to participate in the census. More than 170,000 recruits have already filled out applications for the almost half-million positions being created for the count. The bureau has helped set up more than 1,500 committees nationwide that will work to get everyone to respond.

    Furthermore, Congress would have to change the law for the count to be delayed because Title 13 of the U.S. Code mandates that it take place on April 1, 2020, Thompson said.

    "I don't think there's any ambiguity, but I'm not a lawyer," Thompson said.

    Fewer people are expected to fill out the questionnaires using paper than in years past because the bureau for the first time is relying on most respondents to use the internet to answer questions. Still, printed postcards and letters will be sent out next March reminding residents it's time to answer the questionnaire, and those who don't respond digitally will be mailed paper questionnaires.


    As recently as last week, the Trump administration's solicitor general wrote in court papers that the Census Bureau needed to finalize the questions by June. Any changes to the paper questionnaire after June would impair the bureau's ability to conduct the count in a timely manner, wrote Noel Francisco.

    More than two dozen Democratic U.S. senators last week sent a letter urging U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross to drop any further pursuit of the citizenship question because it will delay the bureau's ability to conduct the count.

    "The 2020 Census is less than half a year away, and any unnecessary delay in operations would impact the ability of the Census Bureau to count every person in our country," the letter said.


    Thompson said the pace of the legal system may have an unintended consequence if Trump wants to delay the count until the U.S. Supreme Court makes another decision: The president may be out of office if he loses the 2020 election.

    Once again, when it comes time to fight, Trump folds like a cheap suit. He should have delayed the census.

    So what if we all do not fill it out?

    Compensate for over 25 million illegal aliens and non-citizens here that WILL be counted. They have no right to be here let alone these sanctuary cities getting MORE of our tax dollars to pay for them. More bodies on the count the more these swamp rats get!

    That why these Democrats want them counted to get more Federal Tax dollars and more seats in the White House.

    I will be throwing mine out because Juan and Juanita will be submitting theirs, including all their anchor rats. This is not fair to the American people and those who come here legally.

    Unfortunately ....

    Excerpt:

    If you refuse to give out the information or you deliberately give inaccurate information, you can be in legal trouble. According to United States Code, Title 13 (Census), Chapter 7 (Offenses and Penalties), SubChapter II, if you're over 18 and refuse to answer all or part of the Census, you can be fined up to $100. If you give false answers, you're subject to a fine of up to $500. If you offer suggestions or information with the "intent to cause inaccurate enumeration of population," you are subject to a fine of up to $1,000, up to a year in prison, or both.

    The grand finale is when Trump gives citizenship to DACA, DAPA, TPS, etc. and all of the asylum seekers.

    (And everyone who was eligible for these but didn't sign-up.)
