The Constitution mandates a decennial census – though only a flat head count. Over the years a host of invasive questions have been added to census forms. One that has appeared in the past is slated to return in two years. It inquires about citizenship.
The Commerce Secretary says this is aimed at enforcing the Voting Rights Act. California, already suing, says it’s aimed at deporting illegals. (California stands for criminals, BTW). The story raises other questions about the issue. Originally, in addition to counting bodies, the census was to assist in apportioning Congress Critters. It still does that but, now, its main purpose is the doling welfare from the federal trough.
