Donald Trump signs Executive Order preventing illegal immigrants from being counted in the census

July 21, 2020

  Donald Trump has been trying to make sure that illegal aliens are not counted on the 2020 census but he suffered a major setback in his quest back in July when the Supreme Court ruled he could not add a citizenship question to the census.

  Not willing to give up so easily, today the President signed an Executive Order which will prevent illegal immigrants from being counted in the census for the purpose of apportioning representation in the House. Here is more:

President Trump on Tuesday issued an order that blocks undocumented immigrants from being counted in the 2020 census for the purpose of allocating congressional representation.

The rationale for the memo rests on the argument that the president has final say over transmitting the final census report to Congress and that the Constitution does not explicitly define which persons must be included in determining apportionment.

“The discretion delegated to the executive branch to determine who qualifies as an ‘inhabitant’ includes authority to exclude from the apportionment base aliens who are not in a lawful immigration status,” the order states. “Excluding these illegal aliens from the apportionment base is more consonant with the principles of representative democracy underpinning our system of Government.  

  According to the above-linked article Donald Trump specifically calls out California as an example, as well as the vast left wing conspiracy (my words, not his) which I think was a terrible idea because it makes it look like political revenge and I can see it coming back to haunt him when this makes it back to the Supreme Court.

  The challenges are already lining up and with the Supreme Court holding a 5-4 liberal majority and with the previous ruling on this issue I have to believe this has no chance of standing.

    There is no information on the census as to illegals. How does he think he will know which is legal and which isnt.

      I was wondering the same thing and the only conclusion I can come up with is they already know who the illegals are and where they are living. Which means they could deport them if they wanted to.

    Good question walktx. Had the Supreme Court recognized that NO foreign country has the right to skew the political system of another country by flooding a country with bodies, we wouldn’t have this delima. The radical left uses the immigration issue just as they use racism and sexism to further their cause.

    Which Judge will come out against it? They always do, just a matter of time.
