You might have heard a bunch of lefties whining about the proposal for a citizenship question on the census. Trumpy would like very much to know who is a citizen in ‘Murica and who isn’t. Lefties would rather us leave that stone unturned. According to Nancy Pelosi, this is a plot by the Trumpster to “make America white again.”
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) argued Monday that President Trump‘s push to include a citizenship question on the 2020 census is an effort to “make America white again” in an adaptation of his campaign slogan.
Pelosi, like other critics of adding the citizenship question to the 2020 census, argued that it could result in racial minorities being undercounted so that legislative maps can be drawn more favorably for Republicans.
“They want to make sure that people, certain people, are counted. It’s really disgraceful. And it’s not what our founders had in mind,” Pelosi said. “What they want to do is put a chilling effect so certain populations will not answer the form.”
Yep, such a query would be totally racist.
Call me crazy, but it sounds to me like Nance is worrying about not being able to pump up the Democrats’ numbers. Even though some of the people filling out those districts might be trespassers.
Here’s a crazy idea. Illegals have no right to be here. Asking someone’s citizenship status is well within the realm of reasonable inquiry. If a person who fills out the census form is here without permission, we politely give them a ride back to their country of origin. If they’re legal immigrants, they have nothing to worry about. Seems fair to me.
Contrary to the left’s beliefs, not everything is racist. An unwelcome Canuck would be in the same
boat ICE van as Hispanic illegals. The point is ensuring people play by the rules. Plain and simple.
