    As an American Citizen I am so tired of FEDERAL #FBI #DEA #CIA #ATF ETC… & LOCAL POLICE LAW ENFORCEMENT that does NOT uphold the United States CONSTITUTION 4th Amendment as they pretty much VIOLATE LAWS and ruin the Rule of Law in this country. There are examples of MURDER by BAD COPS, as well as the systematic beating of the DISABLED for not producing IDENTIFICATION. I personally have been beaten by COPS in Washington state. I believe PIERCE COUNTY WASHINGTON STATE to be RACIST and CROOKED to the BONE.

    Not if you live in California… we have no legal representational people left… You need to be illegal to make it here… DO NOT SEND FEDERAL MONEY… it just feeds the crimes of Jerry Brown and his illegal crew.

    Democrats HATE this because it limits their ability to CHEAT via exaggerated representation in Congress.
    If it wasn't for this and the MANY other ways Democrats cheat – the Party wouldn't exist at all.

    Of course!! No way to know if will tell the truth or even fill one out! Criminals, like the mayors, governors, representitives, illegal entrance to this country. The census only needs to know how many in house, male or female, new born or older, race claimed, income. All other questions are snooping!! Too much snooping with the aforementioned.

    Of course, the citizen question should be asked. Illegals should not count in a census other than determining how many illegals need to be deported.

    It sure would be nice to get a US citizenship… I'd like to support Trump…. it's just impossible to enter.
    You should ask. It should be illegal for illegals to vote in BOTH state and federal elections.

    Yes it is legal because the number of representatives in Congress is given by the number of people living there and illegal aliens don't get representation in Congress.

    There only needs to be ONE question on the census. "How many US CITIZENS reside at this residence?" It's the only question that matters, since it is supposed to be a census of the population of US citizens, not foreign invaders. Illegals have no right whatsoever to representation in congress, which is the entire purpose of the census.

    Yes it is legal. It was asked in census' from 2000 and earlier. Here's the 2000 census long form.. please see question #13. It was common in the past to ask citizenship. Illegals could always opt for the short form and avoid it however.

    Yes, it might impact services, BUT congressional mapping decisions and number of reps/senators should be based upon number of citizens. So, only those who answer the question in the affirmative should be counted for representative determinations. The larger total including illegals can still be used for social services funding, etc.

    How can it be illegal to ask illegals this? THEY HAVE NO RIGHTS THEY ARE ILLEGAL!!!! The constitution outlines and protects the citizens rights. You’re not a citizen, you’re not protected! There are international rights people have outlined by bodies like the UN, but this doesn’t violate them.

    State elections are the problem, once special interest groups get who they want in State office, like for example Jerry Brown, then that person fills their pockets doing the special interests dirty deeds and Secretly push through laws that the majority of the American people don't want. Look, do you think Jerry brown would have been voted in office if he had told people from the Get go that he planned on turning Ca. into a sanctuary state for illegals and fight to have open borders ? NO!!! So i say , change the law that non-US citizens are barred from voting in any election inside the USA. It's impossible to have a country without borders.

    Is it legal to be here illegal? Is it honest to ask for more Federal funds and seats counting on their presence?

  52. Post

    If the aim is to determine LEGAL inhabitants in the USA, for policy planning etc, then the question(s) should be:  are you a Citizen or a LEGAL resident. It would also be interesting to try to compare which states, counties, etc are against the citizenship question. Perhaps these are the constituencies which have traditionally been suspected of voter fraud?????

    I got a census in the mail and i am not sure if it is real or fake but I did answer some of the questions to the best of my ability. Here are some of the questions; 1. Are you a citizen or not? 2. Do you have any objection to collecting food stamps, welfare, ebpt , section eight and free handouts? 3. Do you mind the liberal elites to continue to use illegal immigrants to bolsters their power in Congress? 4. Do you mind getting an accurate count on how many non citizens live in this country?. 5. Do you think that illegals should be allowed to vote? 6. Do you think that California and Massachusetts should have an honest count to see how many illegals are living in those states? Do you think tht America should be first and that Democrats want Illegal aliens to get drivers license and get them to vote? 7. Should the second amendment be abolished? 8. Should 60 minutes show reruns of Stormy Daniels? 9. Do you like to smoke pot while waching pornography? 10. Do you think that the President is misreated and should be shown more respect?
    Show less

    That legaleeze judge Napolitano may have the correct interpretation of the constitution, but like all fat cats, he can laugh that those illegal criminals in Mexifornia can skirt our laws because he's part of the elites that, no doubt, hire those illegals to do his gardening, cooking, etc., and will not have his opulent lifestyle affected by it. He should be doing all he can to change the law through our elected officials to close that loophole, and not adveritising how learned he is and thinking this is a some kind of joke on the american people.

    Problem is that government only wants to know about the U.S. citizens who were born in a federal territory or naturalized for voting purposes, yet none will discuss the state Citizen as he is not allowed to vote, or apply for employment if he claims his correct citizenship, the state Citizenship status has been effectively swept under the rug, as most Americans are in fact state citizens born in the states of the union but they do not know that, the Census should identify the exact citizenship status of each person based on either place of birth or naturalization. But telling the truth about ones true citizenship this census is a continuation of the U.S. citizen LIE.
    the state citizen is an illegal alien within the federal sphere of influence as they are undocumented having no birth certificate from a federal territory or naturalization documents. THE STATE CITIZEN HAS NO RIGHT TO VOTE, VOTING IS LIMITED TO THE U.S. CITIZEN ALONE
    State citizenship case law
    U.S. v. Anthony 24 Fed. 829 (1873) "The term resident and citizen of the United States is distinguished from a Citizen of one of the several states, in that the former is a special class of citizen created by Congress."
    "We have in our political system a government of the United States and a government of each of the several States. Each one of these governments is distinct from the others, and each has citizens of it's own…"
    United States v. Cruikshank, 92 U.S. 542 (1875)

    "…he was not a citizen of the United States, he was a citizen and voter of the State,…" "One may be a citizen of a State an yet not a citizen of the United States".
    McDonel v. The State, 90 Ind. 320 (1883)

    "That there is a citizenship of the United States and citizenship of a state,…"
    Tashiro v. Jordan, 201 Cal. 236 (1927)

    "A citizen of the United States is a citizen of the federal government …"
    Kitchens v. Steele, 112 F.Supp 383

    "Taxpayers are not [de jure] State Citizens." Belmont v. Town of Gulfport, 122 So. 10.

    State v. Manuel, 20 NC 122: "the term 'citizen' in the United States, is analogous to the term `subject' in common law; the change of phrase has resulted from the change in government."

    Supreme Court: Jones v. Temmer, 89 F. Supp 1226:
    "The privileges and immunities clause of the 14th Amendment protects very few rights because it neither incorporates the Bill of Rights, nor protects all rights of individual citizens. Instead this provision protects only those rights peculiar to being a citizen of the federal government; it does not protect those rights which relate to state citizenship."

    Supreme Court: US vs. Valentine 288 F. Supp. 957:
    "The only absolute and unqualified right of a United States citizen is to residence within the territorial boundaries of the United States."

    The Amendment (14th) recognized that "an individual can be a Citizen of one of the several states without being a citizen of the United States," (U.S. v. Anthony, 24 Fed. Cas. 829, 830), or, "a citizen of the United States withoutbeing a Citizen of a state." (Slaughter-House Cases, supra; cf. U.S. v. Cruikshank, 92 US 542, 549 (1875)).

    A more recent case is Crosse v. Bd. of Supervisors, 221 A.2d 431 (1966) which says: "Both before and after the Fourteenth Amendment to the federal Constitution, it has not been necessary for a person to be a citizen of the United States in order to be a citizen of his state." Citing U.S. v. Cruikshank, supra.

    The courts presume you to be a federal citizen, without even telling you that there are different classes of citizens. It is up to you dispute this. Use your passport and the actual birth certificate. See…
    "Unless the defendant can prove he is not a citizen of the United States, the IRS has the right to inquire and determine a tax liability." U.S. v. Slater, 545 Fed. Supp. 179,182 (1982).

    "There are, then, under our republican form of government, two classes of citizens, one of the United States and one of the state".
    Gardina v. Board of Registrars of Jefferson County, 160 Ala. 155; 48 So. 788 (1909)

    "The governments of the United States and of each state of the several states are distinct from one another. The rights of a citizen under one may be quite different from those which he has under the other".
    Colgate v. Harvey, 296 U.S. 404; 56 S.Ct. 252 (1935)

    "…rights of national citizenship as distinct from the fundamental or natural rights inherent in state citizenship".
    Madden v. Kentucky, 309 U.S. 83: 84 L.Ed. 590 (1940)

    "There is a difference between privileges and immunities belonging to the citizens of the United States as such, and those belonging to the citizens of each state as such".
    Ruhstrat v. People, 57 N.E. 41 (1900)

    "Therefore, the U.S. citizens residing in one of the states of the union, are classified as property and franchises of the federal government as an "individual entity"", Wheeling Steel Corp. v. Fox, 298 U.S. 193, 80 L.Ed. 1143, 56 S.Ct. 773
    "…the first eight amendments have uniformly been held not to be protected from state action by the privilege and immunities clause [of the 14th Amendment]."
    Hague v. CIO, 307 US 496, 520

    The census should question how many illegal immigrants you employ, instead of if you are one. How about a question about how many firearms you own?

    There is definitely something wrong when our government who works for American's know every place we've ever lived but cares to know nothing about invaders. Census is unconstitutional .
    We are the boss of our government ,and they have no right to know everything about us.
    The government is our employee's and need reminded who they work for,and its not illegals!

    Add the question. Are you a citizen? Its not racist. Illegals voting is no different than walking into someones house and telling them what to spend money on, what there chores will be, whats for dinner. Walk into a Democrats house and start bossing they're kids around, I'm sure they will have no issue with it.
