President Trump wanted to restore the citizenship question to the 2020 census. The question would reveal how many citizens, non-citizens, and illegal aliens actually live in this country. Obviously, Democrats fought to block him, taking it all the way to the Supreme Court. The president refuses to give up this goal and has unveiled a new plan.
It’s obvious why Democrats don’t want us to know how many citizens there are, right? The left has been encouraging illegal immigration for years. But why? Because they want these “undocumented” people counted as American citizens.
They give illegals jobs, housing, education, even government benefits. All so more will come and—although it’s illegal—vote for them. It’s why Democrats have turned major U.S. cities into sanctuaries for criminal aliens.
The more illegals flood these Democrat-controlled regions, the higher their populations rise. That means more representatives in Congress—and more electoral votes.
But what if we knew that millions of people living in liberal states weren’t Americans? Well, Democrats would lose out on quite a bit. The number of their reps in Congress would drop, they’d lose electoral votes, and they might even lose billions in federal aid.
Worse than that, it would give Trump more reason to deport illegals. And wake up more Americans to the threat illegal immigration poses to our country.
Democrats thought they won, after the Supreme Court delayed Trump’s attempt to add the question to the census. But yesterday, Trump dropped a whammy on the left, as he unveiled a more accurate method of finding out whose and American and who isn’t.
“Today, I will be issuing an executive order to put this very plan into effect immediately. I’m hereby ordering every department and agency in the federal government to provide the Department of Commerce with all requested records regarding the number of citizens and non-citizens in our country. They must furnish all legally accessible records in their possession immediately.
We will utilize these vast federal databases to gain a full, complete, and accurate count of the non-citizen population, including databases maintained by the Department of Homeland Security and the Social Security Administration.
We have great knowledge in many of our agencies. We will leave no stone unturned. The Census Bureau projected that using previously available records, it could determine citizenship for 90 percent of our population or more.” [Source: White House.gov]
Uh-oh! Democrats jumped out of the frying pan into the fire with this one.
They thought they won by using the courts to delay Trump’s agenda. But instead of adding a question to the census (where nothing stops a person from just lying about their citizenship), Trump will be harvesting the vast resources of federal agencies to get a clear number of how many U.S. citizens there actually are.
Honestly, he just has to count all the Social Security numbers that are still active. Every U.S. citizen has a valid SSN. Illegals don’t have them. Legal aliens don’t either. As long as the Social Security Administration can account for the deceased (and fraudulent cases), there is a verifiable number of real citizens.
Add to that other databases that can be used to double check the numbers, Trump has a count of American citizens that can’t be distorted by dishonest census entries.
Democrats really hurt themselves with this one. Had Obama not removed the question during his administration, they could have let the whole thing slide. Illegals could have just lied on the census, giving a fake number of citizens. But because the left so stubbornly denied Trump’s simple request, he now will get a much more accurate count.
You really didn’t think this one through, liberals. Haven’t you already learned that Trump doesn’t give up? Especially when it comes to protecting the American people? You’ve seen his track record over the last two-and-half years, right? He got Mexico to help protect our border, for goodness sake.
Did you really think he would lose this fight?
But you have to give Democrats a break. They live in a fantasy land where Trump is a Russian spy and Hillary Clinton is the rightful President of the United States. Most of their schemes fail, because they have no clue what’s going on.
Thank goodness they’re no longer in the White House.
