    The citizenship question still counts people here that are not citizens. Legal and illegal immigrants also can answer no and it still counts them. This just says how many of the people here are citizens. Let's be real, this is about political power for the Dems. If the citizenship question is not on the census, places like California get more electoral college votes and seats in the House of Representatives to represent non-citizens, which takes political power from actual US citizens. Those states typically vote blue though, which is why the Dems don't want to include the citizenship question, because it benefits them politically.

    Trump is a cheater and he has no shame about it, as long as he wins, he doesn't care how it happened. He asked for help with 2016 election and got it, and he just asked for help again…and he did it on national television, both times.
    Trump family motto: If you can't win straight, then cheat to win. They don't call me Don the Con for nothing. 😉😉👍

    We got people pouring in from all over the world with absolutely nothing. And we can’t even take care of the homeless we have here now. What’s the grand plan to take care of these people? No one can answer cause there is no plan. Just more slum communities and more crime. Someone tell me what you liberals have planned for this problem please I beg you.

    I forgot…If trump gets away with this then he has shown all of the United States that he can indeed do whatever he wants, not even the Supreme Court will stop him. If they don't then no body in the country can stop him. The only thing is at the ballot box, but personally I think he will win, he will just wipe the machines and say "I won". and all the people in the states will go Oh OK..
    If he gives the Supreme Court the finger and they do nothing, then that is as far as it can go….It won't matter about Congress because now trump has ultimate power over the country Unless voted out of power in 4 years which I doubt. trump during the next 4 years will be working his way into making sure his daughter/girlfriend becomes the next potus. That is trumps plan.

    the court should not let a litigator go back with a different excuse over and over until they come up with one that sells. we should take the truth first and not let them make a new excuse.

    Trump, give up now and leave the WH!
    Every discriminatory, prejudicial, non sensical, whacko decision that you have illegaly and criminally contrived can, should and will be reversed as soon as you walk out of the WH for the last time, in case you didn't figure out when that is, sooner than you think

    I don’t get why a citizenship question is a problem. Surely we would like to know statistics on whites, Hispanics, Indigenous Americans, blacks, browns, Asians or whatever (sorry if I left anyone out) … the point of a Consensus is it’s a snap shot, this is not a big deal, it’s data that is useful for planning. Every civilized nation does this.

    The citizen ship question is to provide programs for different nationalities living in the US. These people may be waiting for citizenship and deserve special teachers, or translators, and other special help. Not knowing who or how many of one nationality is in a district is not good.

    The GOP is the party that favors the 1% richest, and their exploitation of the other 99%. They must lie and cheat in elections — because in a clean election, with well-informed voters who know what the the two parties are really after, they would lose 99 to 1.

    Trump's doing this during his pretend national emergency. It isn't pretend anymore. Don't be intimidated, Be strong and for real strength when you need it, don't hesitate to pray and always close with, "In Jesus name." We need to be in touch with our Creator and more-so, in times like these.

    This administration, this media and America as a whole will go down in history as worse than stalin, hitler and Mussolini. These four years will be the darkest period in American history. America will be judged as shameless, weak, corrupted, coward, and a country that elected the most narcissistic, evil and inhuman moron as president!

    His condition is worsening!
    It is amazing how the Cult 45 followers keep supporting and cheerleading the wrongful acts. It is apparent that they do not understand that when a calamity hits one American citizen it will hit ALL American citizens. It will not simply hit homes of Democrats and jump over Republicans. Someone needs to inform them.

    Rather that weigh down ICE this weekend. Why not task FBI with arresting the criminals who need charging and the winner gets a selfie, riding in the tank down the avenue ( on the trailer)! That is called cropping the photo to remove unwanted distractions, like the trailer bed. They could put a cloth over that.

    Why did you jump straight from citizens to illegal immigrants Chris? Not all legal immigrants are citizens, but they're still entitled to representation, even if they're not citizens. Making it specifically citizens rather than asking immigration status is a clearly partisan political move

    boycott the census? this ain't 1776. the government already knows who and where we are, along with everything there is to know about us. demanding direct, active compliance to an antiquated head count is coercive at this point.

    the law says all census collection and info remain STRICTLY confidential and never used for any other purpose other than apportionment. CLEARLY, those days are gone, and so should be this door-to-door government intrusion.

    You mean "FAKE!" like your illegitimate presidency…Mueller found in his report that:
    1. trump broke election laws while registering as a candidate and so trump illegally ran for office in 2016- trump could never win when he ran an illegal election campaign. 2. Mueller reported that trump obstructed justice in 12 unlawful ways. 3. Mueller reported that if trump were not already in office, he would be charged with several felonies, so Congress and Senate must begin impeachment of Russian placed trump.

    So… the administration will print the census forms without the question… then swap them for the alternate census forms WITH the question, that are being printed in Russia, and charge the tax payers twice.

    Trump tweets "because of the importance of the answer to this question." The first national census took place in 1790 and the citizenship question has never been asked. The nation has survived during all this time. But now for Trump it is an absolute necessity. Why? Because the GOP needs to suppress the minority vote to survive.

    Good for Trump. The reason for the question sounded contrived to me too but all Trump needs is one honest explanation (he’s not limited to one explanation or the original explanation). The census counts everybody but that doesn’t give illegals a right to be here. All he should have to say is “I want to get a better idea of how many illegals are here so I can allocate the resources to deport them.” If the court disapproves that, then it is improperly stepping into the shoes of the president and the court’s actions are, themselves, unconstitutional.

    If Wilbur Ross had any self-respect he would resign over this debacle. A little bit of history here, the requirement to hold a census is in the Constitution which was written at a time when there where no American 'citizens' as the Revolution had yet to happen.

    The problem is that it will not only perhaps stop illegals from counting it basically may keep legal residents also not counting for the purpose of the census because there have been people being swept up to be deported even when they were born in the States.

    When I got a census form without the citizenship question, I wrote the citizenship question on the form myself and then I checked "yes". Any citizen who gets a census form which does not have the citizenship question should add the question onto the form & say "yes"!
