Lena is so dang wrong again. No it's not Lena, it's to count EVERY person. In fact, California will lose a ton of funding if it went your way and we know you love your benefits.bob wrote: ↑Mon Jun 24, 2019 3:36 pmhttp://www.orlytaitzesq.com/reminder-su ... us-census/Reminder: Supreme Court session ends this week, will they finally put back the citizenship question in the US census?
To me the most important question in the US census is whether the person is the US citizen. The whole idea behind the census was to count how many citizens live in the US, not tourists, not foreign students, who are due to go back, not illegals, who are due to get deported, but the US citizens.
For years the US census proudly featured this question at the top of the questionnaire. Globalists were able to remove this most important question from the census. This led to millions of illegals to be counted in the census, which gave the states with more illegals more federal dollars. This became an incentive for the states to become sanctuary states. Additionally, the donors of politicians wanted an unending supply of cheap foreign labor to compete with Americans and they wanted this citizenship question out of the questionnaire.
President Trump has shown himself to be a true American patriot in this and many other matters. He is fighting the globalists by placing the citizenship question back into the questionnaire. His actions were challenged in courts and the Supreme Court is scheduled to issue it’s ruling this week. I hope they will rule in favor of President Trump, in favor of us, the American citizens and will allow this question. If this question is placed back into the census questionnaire, at least 4 million people, who are not US citizens, are expected to be removed from the count. This is expected to happen in blue states, which are expected to lose a number of congressional seats

By Robert Longley Updated February 22, 2019
The millions of undocumented immigrants living and often working in the United States are counted in the decennial U.S. census. Should they be?
As currently required by law, the U.S. Census Bureau attempts to count all persons in the U.S. living in residential structures, including prisons, dormitories, and similar "group quarters" in the official decennial census. People counted in the census include citizens, legal immigrants, non-citizen long-term visitors, and illegal (or undocumented) immigrants.
Why the Census SHOULD Count Undocumented Immigrants
Not counting undocumented aliens costs cities and states federal money, resulting in a reduction of services to all residents. The census count is used by Congress in deciding how to distribute more than $400 billion annually to state, local, and tribal governments. The formula is simple: the greater the population your state or city reports, the more federal money it might get.
Cities provide the same level of services — think police, fire, and emergency medical treatment — to undocumented immigrants as they do to U.S. citizens. In some states like California, undocumented immigrants attend public schools. In 2004, the Federation for American Immigration Reform estimated the cost to California cities for education, health care, and incarceration of illegal immigrants at $10.5 billion per year.
According to one study released by the U.S. Census Monitoring Board, a total of 122,980 people went uncounted in Georgia during the 2000 census. As a result, the state lost out on some $208.8 million in federal funding through 2012, about $1,697 per uncounted person.
On the other hand, whew! Lena hadn't pooped in over a week, was worried she had a colorectal issue.
