Trump really wants to know how many illegal aliens are in the US.
The progressives don’t want us to know.
The Trump administration is directing the U.S. Census Bureau to request states hand over citizenship statistics. This comes after the Supreme Court blocked the White House from adding a citizenship question to the 2020 census.
An Associated Press report this week detailed the two methods being used to gather the data without specifically asking the question. One way is having states ask residents to provide information from their driver’s license. Another is to submit information on individuals enrolled in government-funded public programs.
The Census Bureau reiterated the information they receive is stripped of personal identities and will be used strictly for statistics.
President Trump issued an executive order earlier this year to allow the Commerce Department to ask for records to help it compile citizenship data of those living in the U.S.
“Today i will be issuing an executive order to put this very plan into effect immediately,” he stated. “I am 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.”
