The Democrat argument that illegals will run and hide at the sight of the question should have to be explained now that we know Obama used it for much of his 8 years in office.
Democrats were for the Census Bureau’s “racist” citizenship question before they were against it.
The Clinton Administration’s 2000 Census included a “long form” questionnaire. It stated: “This is the official form for all the people at this address. It is quick and easy, and your answers are protected by law. Complete the Census and help your community get what it needs — today and in the future!”
On page four, Question 13 asked: “Is this person a CITIZEN of the United States?” A respondent could indicate that he was born in the U.S.A, in U.S. territories, abroad to American parents; a citizen via naturalization; or “No, not a citizen of the United States.”
This unbridled bigotry raged on under Obama’s Anglo-Saxorama. His 2010 Census did not ask the citizenship question. However, between 2010 and 2017, all eight of Obama’s annual American Community Surveys asked “three questions that cover information on place of birth, citizenship, and year of entry to better understand the composition of our nation’s changing population,” according to the ACS website.
