Kobach: Why the 2020 U.S. Census needs citizenship question

This makes so much sense.

KOBACH: Think of it this way. There are 710,000 people per representative in Congress. But if you live in a district like Maxine Waters’ district out in California, probably half or more of your district is illegal aliens. And so you may only have 350,000 citizens voting in your district. Those citizens’ votes count twice as much as my vote or your vote if you live in a district that doesn’t have tons of illegal aliens.

So you have vote dilution where some peoples’ vote matters more than others because they have tons of illegal aliens in their district.

KOBACH: Well, I think it’s a dirty little secret that they don’t really want to talk about. And you’re absolutely right, the 1964 decision of the Supreme Court, Westbury vs. Sanders says voting dilution is unconstitutional. You cannot have one congressional district where there are fewer voters than are another district and because of illegal immigration, we have crazy disproportional. Extraordinary numbers where in a midwestern seat you might have to get 120,000 votes to win your election, and in Waters’ district, you might only need 40,000 votes to win.

KOBACH: The only argument against [the citizenship question on the U.S. census] that I have heard is a really lame one. They say that people will be afraid to answer the census form if it has the citizenship question, which is ridiculous first of all. And secondly, we already ask the citizenship question on the American Communities Survey, which about one percent of the population gets and the Census Bureau asks that, it’s an ongoing survey. The Democrats never complained about that. Only when suddenly we talk about putting the citizenship question back on the census do the people on the Left start…

CARLSON: But why should we care if people who aren’t allowed to vote in our elections are afraid to answer a census which is designed to proportion congressional districts?

KOBACH: Well, there’s that too. If you’re illegally in this country, we shouldn’t be considering you a resident anyway because you could go home at any day, you could be deported any moment, so why in the world would we be worried about counting you.

    They definitely should not be counted. More fraud.

    So he’s assuming they wouldn’t lie about their status?

      Of course, many people may lie. It doesn’t mean the question shouldn’t be asked. Let the lie to a Federal Census be deliberate.

        I’m assuming that a lot of the illegals who would lie are also already voting, one way or another and, therefore, the inclusion of the question would do nothing to clean up the voter rolls which seems to be his argument for including it.

        Maybe there aren’t so many illegals voting as I think. It would be a very good thing if something could be done about those who lie on the census and asking the question might the way to get them on record so action could be taken.

    There are penalty’s for lies on the census. How does an illegal gain by claiming citizenship?

      That census determines a lotta things including representation in Congress and the distribution of lots of free Fedruh moniez. In 2010 New Orleans mayor and city council went ballistic over what they said was many ‘homeless residents’ not being counted.
      I don’t blame the census folk, they felt uncomfortable chasing down the mentally ill. alcoholics, druggies and the rest of the homeless brigade in dark, smelly places. There were complaints that many of the homeless were counted more than once or twice as they shifted all over the city from hidey hole to rat hole and carried no ID. They had no address other than perhaps a mail drop at a mission so how do you keep track of them?
      City was looking for another Federal rep and trying to keep the one it had and also fishing for more Federal funds. As it was still suffdering from Katrina related population loss it was desperate for each and every body that could be counted including the large numbers of Latino workers still laboring in the city – dare I say ‘illegals’?
      There were shanty cities along the Rio Grande and our Illegalville that supplies workers to the oil and ship industry and we know they were counted. If it’s run by the Feds it’;s ripe for fraud.

        A friend of mine worked on the census (on Long Island) in 2000. He said the government administration is a mess.

          I worked the 2010. We had a dork boss who was also a temp – no wonder he couldn’t get a real job. Passed himself off as a cop in a jurisdiction about 30 miles away – didn’t think there might be anyone who’d have contacts there and could check on him.
          I still have the training manuals and they show the one of THE most important functions we had was recording the GPS location of the fronty door of the house/apartment we were surveying. The Feds wanted the exact GPS coordinates of every dwelling in the US and the meter we had gave us the address and we had to stand and push the button to get and store the reading. We were instruicted to be ‘vague’ about what we were doing if asked. I did it for about a month and quit – enough was enough.

    Wanna’ come out of the shadows? Come out, Come out. Tell us you are here.

    This is our country and we have a right to know exactly who is within our borders. There should be NO QUESTION that this SHOULD BE a question!

    This is paid for by the U.S. taxpayers and we deserve answers. We deserve the truth about how many invaders there are within our systems.
