Asking U.S. Residents If They’re American Citizens Is a ‘White Supremacist Agenda’??
An Islamic group, Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), is claiming that the thought of the Census Bureau asking if you are a US citizen is just a ‘White Supremacist Agenda’. Forgive me as I take a few moments to laugh.
The US Census Bureau is charged, in the Constitution, every ten years to take a census of the US as a means to apportion the House of Representatives based on citizen population. That is simple, really. How many US citizens are there, and in which State do they live? Only citizens can vote (or so the law says) so we need to know where they live.
Is asking a black man, or an ethnic Chinese woman, or a white person, for that matter, if they are citizens a matter of a White Supremacist Agenda? Of course not. We need to apportion the House of Representatives per the Constitution. But then again, Far Left groups have no use for the Constitution except for when it benefits them.
I have issues with the Census, as they have no business asking all kinds of personal questions, for which they have no Constitutional authority, but to ask if you are a citizen is right there in the Constitution.
I get tired of this victimhood mentality. It is promoted by the globalists to destroy the US, and many Western nations, while its “victims” are treated as children who have been spoiled rotten and deserve something for nothing. Sorry, but that is not how reality works. Bringing others down does not raise you up.
The open borders lobby, though, is blasting the decision, as it threatens states with large illegal alien populations like California, New York, and Florida. Those states are at risk of losing congressional seats if redistricting is based upon counting citizens rather than the current model, which counts all residents, including illegal aliens.
This is what the objection is based on. The claim of it being a White Supremacist Agenda is merely a smokescreen to mask the real agenda. The globalists want illegals and non-citizens to be counted (and be allowed to vote), so they can garner, or maintain power. It is about power, pure and simple.
