AG BARR SEES A WAY TO ASK ABOUT CITIZENSHIP IN CENSUS

Lord God, we pray for justice to prevail in the controversy about the census and the citizenship question.
453 People Prayed

Attorney General William Barr said Monday he sees a way to legally require 2020 census respondents to declare whether or not they are citizens, despite a Supreme Court ruling that forbade asking the question.

In an interview with The Associated Press, Barr said the Trump administration will take action in the coming days that he believes will allow the government to add the controversial census query. Barr would not detail the plans, though a senior official said President Donald Trump is expected to issue a memorandum to the Commerce Department instructing it to include the question on census forms. . . .

James Burnham, a top lawyer in the department’s civil division who had been leading the team, had told Barr that a number of people who had been litigating the case preferred “not to continue during this new phase,” the attorney general said.

The new team may find it easier to argue the administration’s new position, said an administration official, speaking only on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to comment for attribution.

Barr said he didn’t have details on why the attorneys didn’t want to continue, but “as far as I know, they don’t think we are legally wrong.”

Barr said he has been in regular contact with Trump over the issue of the citizenship question. “I agree with him that the Supreme Court decision was wrong,” the attorney general said. He said he believes there is “an opportunity potentially to cure the lack of clarity that was the problem and we might as well take a shot at doing that.”

The Trump administration has argued that it wanted the question included to aid in enforcing the Voting Rights Act, which protects minority voters’ access to the ballot box. But Chief Justice John Roberts joined the court’s four more liberal members in last month’s Supreme Court decision, openly skeptical about that justification. (Excerpt from AP News.)

What do you think? Should citizenship be asked on the census? Leave a comment.

  1. I totally agree that only citizens should vote. I don’t mind if the question is on the 2020 Census. However, as a Census taker in several previous decennial years, I would expect one of two things from illegals: 1) They lie and claim to be citizens when they are asked the question. 2)OR they do not participate at all; that is they find ways to evade the Census taker — such as not opening the door and pretending not to be “home,” making a point of not being “home” during the hours a Census taker works, avoiding phone calls that might be from a Census taker, going to the house of a citizen (maybe a family member who really is or who will lie) and keeping out of sight or fleeing out a back door, when a Census taker knocks on the door, etc.

  2. The people before me said it all!! all the people of America who have the right to vote should VOTE!! it should be fair not trickery by any party
    We are praying!!!

    1. I believe that many Nations have the right to Vote, but that there is many marching in the streets proclaiming their voting system is without fair play!! for the people in these Countries it is wrong their voice is not always heard!and are vote needs to count too!!!!

  3. At the last election in California, there were five Republican winners of different districts, but when the time came for them to go to the House of Representative, five Democrats took their place without letting the public know what the final count of each district was. From what I heard that in Orange County there were more than 200,000 lost Republican ballots. Funny how that happens when Nancy Pelosi is from the 12 district of California and is also Speaker of the House who declared that the Democratic would win the House back.

    For this reason alone, we need to know who is a citizen of the U.S. and who isn’t. We want the elections to be fair not manipulated. It is time that the American citizens take our country back from the Deep State.

    1. I support requiring citizenship noted in the census. The Democratic sweep in California, however, may have still prevailed since they apparently did it legally by “ballot harvesting”- going out and collecting mail in ballots. Were they all citizens? Who knows

  4. Yes I remember it always being on the census & it’s ridiculous to not have it in considering that is part of what they need to know to access how many representatives etc that they need to represent the CITIZENS of the United States.

  5. At 72 years of age, I can remember the citizenship question being asked on PREVIOUS Census forms. There are many valid & Constitutional reasons we need to know the number of eligible to vote residents, AND, those who are NOT eligible. The Democrats are totally against protecting the ballot box, to be used by Citizens ONLY. They’ve fought against every common sense measure to stop any illegal votes from being cast for years. So, NO surprise they’re fighting against this common sense measure that will affect citizens votes.

  6. Definitely the citizenship question should be on the census. The Democrats are trying to sabotage our country. Why would anyone object to asking the question unless they have a hidden agenda? I understand the question has been on the census until Obama took it off. (Is that true?).

  7. As a transplant from the UK and now a US citizen since 2015 and having come through the legal process I absolutely agree with others that the question should be added in the census.

  8. I agree that only US citizens be included in the census. The issue is whether we,the people,fund our states and country. Or line the pockets of politicians. Your grandfather, who became a Supreme Court judge, immigrated over to Ellis Island. He utilized the proper channels to become a US citizen.

  9. As a nation, we have the right to know if people living here are citizens. The only reason for NOT putting this question on the Census would be to help the Democratic voter base. If you live in any other country on the face of the earth, you cannot be there illegally; they will send you home. I am praying for wisdom for our President and our leaders, and for common sense to prevail.

  10. Only US citizens should be included in the census. The census is used to determine the number of representatives that each state gets and also the amount of federal aid each state gets. Only US citizens should be eligible for both.

  11. Only US citizens should be included in the census. The census is used to determine the number of representatives that each state gets and also the amount of federal aid each state gets. Only US citizens should be eligible for both.

  12. Absolutely! A nation to run lawfully without chaos and hints of mutiny every day needs to have like-minded Americans who will be observant to and knowledgeable about the US Constitution. From Washington’s Farewell Address, 1796: “The name of American, which belongs to you in your national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of patriotism more than any appellation derived from local discriminations. With slight shades of difference, you have the same religion, manners, habits, and political principles. You have in a common cause fought and triumphed together. The independence and liberty you possess are the work of joint councils and joint efforts, of common dangers, sufferings, and successes.” If the person is not a legal citizen, the temptation is greater to be a lawbreaker in more areas than one and contributes to the weakness in our national sovereignty. One willing to work hard to be a citizen will appreciate and want to protect their own citizenship and their fellow citizens.
