  • Deborah Freedman says:

    Census data is not supposed to be used against us, but during WWII it was used to round up Japanese and German citizens and residents. I can see why households with illegal aliens would be justifiably afraid to answer the census. This would definitely suppress the count in states like California and Texas.

  • Trump as Commander in Chief can legally declare a state of emergency, thus freezing all elections, and stopping the census. With our great military 100% behind him, what could you do? Technically, this could happen. With Trump, you never know!

  • Trump has never read the Constitution.
    He does not care if it is in the Constitution, he believes that he is king and his desires override everything else.
    When he said he was the candidate of law and order he meant his made up laws and whatever he orders.

    I stated in previous posts that having the question included will defeat the purpose of the census. It will skew the data because a lot of people will avoid being included.
    Some ignorant people went into a rant that they didn't mind illegals having to answer the question.
    Unfortunately, racist, xenophobic Trump supporters still do not get the point.

  • Drake Koefoed says:

    the census was first misused to round up japanese americans in wwii and has been misused no one knows how many times since.

  • Halina Bemben says:

    Why don't you expose who really is in power. Elites ! !!!!!!!!! the f…….c king evil that has inslaved the humanity for hundreds of years. people don't want to see , hear . the real problem is the elites . all the riches company .

  • TYPICAL REPUBLICANS ALL THE CAN DO IS FLIP FLOP ON EVERY POSITION UNTIL HEY FIND SOMETHING THAT STICKS! THERE IS NOTHING MORE PATHETIC THAN RIGHT WING REPUBLICANS!

  • Eugene Setiawan says:

    There are no secret that donald and Don the con enablers are traitors by their deliberate and consciously treasonous acts and culture of lying in the White House. First donald defending the enemy Russia. Second donald colluding with Russia to cheat on the 2016 election. Third dona;d giving sensitive information's to Russian. Fourth donald undermining FBI and CIA counter intelligent. Donald, his enablers are compromise and Russian assets. The whole world known donald is a traitor from the start of his tenure in the White House

  • Thought fraud's ( convicted frauds btw) were not allowed to spread their lies on national t.v.
    Like he got charged and sentenced on multiple occations for fraud and campaign finance violations. So i ask again , y is this fraud allowed on news any more?

  • We not only have a president who makes up things in a daily basis but we also have a president that doesn’t read documents and therefore doesn’t understand why from a legal basis his arguments aren’t valid. Maybe he needs to be quarantined for his own stupidity?

  • Shawn E. Hays says:

    More fake news, there's going to be a war breakout here,Trump isn't the president of the U.S. anymore, the U.S. Army had to administer and enforce the law and make Trump not the president and Pence not the vice, Mary Stanley's gang bribed most of the federal government workers in Washington D.C. to quit their jobs that's why the U.S. Army had to do it, Trump's gang probably murdered some people in Washington D.C., probably those 6in9 ones went into nursing homes and murdered some people or else they murdered some U.S. Marine's or U.S. Senator's, I believe that Trump doesn't like the U.S. Military or the U.S. government and that it was his idea to murder some U.S. Marine's or U.S. Senator's and to have some of his gang people do it, the 6in9 ones.
    It's time to declare a war against those gangs, Trump's gang, Mary Stanley's gang, Pence's gang, Obama's gang, Bill and Hillary Clinton's gang, and Pelosi's gang, raid Trump's tower in New York City, there will probably be a wild shootout there the U.S. Military against Trump's gang inside of that tower, probably a bunch of those 6in9 gang criminals inside of there and the 6in9's that murdered some U.S. Marine's in Washington D.C., and some Russians, Trump and his wife, a lot of those people will be arrested and shot and killed there or wherever, there's probably a lot of illegal money inside of that tower, that will be seized, Trump's gang probably embezzled that money out of the federal tax accounts in Washington D.C..
    All of the federal courts and the FBI have been shutdown since about 2014 after Mary Stanley's gang and Pence's gang murdered an FBI agent from the Indianapolis Indiana FBI office, and Mary Stanley's gang murdered a U.S. Supreme Court judge or a U.S. Senator, Mary Stanley's gang bribed most of the FBI agent's and Federal court judges to quit their jobs, Mary Stanley's gang and Pence's gang also bribed a lot of police officers in the state of Indiana and West Virginia to quit their jobs, the White House will be seized, searched and destroyed by the real U.S. Army, there's going to be a war breakout against Trump's gang, Mary Stanley's gang, Pence's gang, Bill and Hillary Clinton's gang, Obama's gang, and Pelosi's gang, they've committed a lot of devilworshipping murders, embezzled billions of dollars, racketeered various crimes murders, labor, etc., fake police officer's all over the place, there will be a lot of real estate to seize that Mary Stanley's gang owns, a lot of homes and buildings to destroy. I want the job or contract tearing those homes down Cat 336 excavator and a Cat 973 track loader, there's some homes right here in Jefferson county Indiana that Mary Stanley's gang owns, there's probably fake names on the real estate deeds.
    The U.S. Army needs to go to Jefferson county Indiana, to get the fake police officer's out of the police department's and court house, the schools here have been shutdown for about six weeks now because of the fake police officer's people are concerned about their safety and security, and those gangs embezzling money from the state and federal government. Some of those gang criminals will have to be shot and killed, gang criminals that have did those devilworshipping murders, Mary Stanley and Pence's gang have bought funeral homes to try to cover up murders, those funeral homes will have to be seized, searched, and destroyed by the real U.S. Army.
    There needs to be real news, I believe that the real U.S. Army will probably have to make those public announcements.

  • Steven Roberts says:

    Why don’t us citizens want to know who else is in this country? The 11mil number is from 2003. Yale study puts it between 22-33mil.

  • Smh. This administration really no clue what is a census data is for. When you put that kind of question in it, its shrewd the data. Immigration will lies and the data is invalid.

  • The citizenship question doesn’t preclude “persons” from answering it. It’s arguably unconstitutional for the court to usurp the discretion of the executive branch and decide what questions should be on the census. Trump should say I want to get a better idea of how many people are here illegally so I can properly allocate the resources to deport them. He can have multiple reasons so he doesn’t have to rely on just one. Alternatively, he could put the question on there anyway because time is of the essence and let the court delay the census.

  • Pulelehuanani kaai says:

    The question must be added, especially that the Territory of Hawaii from 1900, was not apart of the UNITED STATES. There was no Annexation Treaty. Foster and Thurston was unable to get any Treaty. The falsehood which in 1897, William McKinley moved the Newlands Resolution is NOT an Treaty. Now moving forward and passing the HISTORY that BRITAIN held lots of rights in Hawaii; President Sanford Dole was jailing British subjects because he was working to annexation; Thurston and Dole as traitors to Hawaii; Hawaiians were against the annexation with the PETITION which is called the KU'E; Hawaiians were banned from taking part unless they renounce their rights; The 1897 petition against annexation from Hawaiians that was submitted to Congress; 1900 a CENSUS was done, and the outcome was to find out the land mass and how much of it was crowned and public (which they were leased still not fee simple) lands; WWII Japan bombed Pearl Harbor was toward the USA, NOT HAWAIIANS in December 7 1941; The Atlantic Charter was a joint declaration released by U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill on August 14, 1941(The Charter stated the ideal goals of the war: no territorial aggrandizement; no territorial changes made against the wishes of the people (self-determination); restoration of self-government to those deprived of it; On November 23rd, 1993, President Bill Clinton signed a piece of legislation known as the "Apology Bill" because the illegal overthrow of a formed Militia was backed by the USA Navy, still OCCUPYING Pearl Harbor to this day. In general there are many like me feel we are forced to take part. We are forced to pay Federal taxes that took our country name "Hawaiian Kingdom" away. BUT we are honest people who's do diligence is to keep the PEACE. We were called during the civil war, "Slave State". I guess they are right. We are slaves. I would like to finally say that I am for the Census question. Because Hawaiians have their own country which is the Hawaiian Kingdom and many Hawaiians do not vote because of their rights to be Hawaiians are in hand.

  • KEVIN DERAMUS says:

    Mr. President, I know that I speak for 100% of the American population, every man, woman, and child, including all minorities, races, genders, colors and ethnicities when I say: THANK YOU. WE LOVE EVERYTHING YOU'VE DONE FOR US! As You Lead – We The People Will Follow! You forever will have all of America's undying allegiance! That is our promise to you forever. We are hoping and praying for your reelection next year! TO 2020 AND BEYOND! For as long as you lead. We the people will follow. That is America’s promise to you. Everyone in the country believes this in their hearts with every fiber in our being! America is so proud of you. #MAGA

  • I have a personal problem with Mr. Katyal. He is the one that rewrote the JOD rules so a sitting president can not be ideated and the special conceal report goes to the JOD instead of congress and the public.
    Neal Katyal did a lot of good in his life, lots, He is one of the leading legal minds in the USA.
    one little mistake made mainly because he had Bill Clinton and Ken Star in mind. he never thought there will be a real reason to indite, he never thought he will have an illegal president (ie, one who used illegal methods to become the president).

    unfortunately the mistake is much more damaging than any good the man has ever done, If Trump had someone like Star investigating him and releasing to the public every peace of evidence as it is found while clearly calling Trump a criminal…. Trump would have been out by now or in jail.

  • Russel Bamberry says:

    What is the problem in asking if the person filling out the census is a U.S citizen or not? Isn't the census anonymous? Isn't it important to know the population number and the amount of non U.S citizens so the government can formulate policy to allocate funds to certain areas? How can government allocate funds to ppl who are living in the U.S if they have no idea if they are there illegally or not? How can a government consider the funds it needs to start to integrate these ppl into the U.S and begin allowing them to get citizenship and be able to fully participate in U.S society?

  • Francais Lover says:

    The citizenship question was always meant to intimidate immigrant communities.Thank goodness this judge had the common sense to shut it down.

  • So without roberts’ following the law, the scotus would be partisan puppets? No legal standings whatsoever? A little surprised he didn’t just follow the thug in chief’s lead

  • Phil Kleingeld says:

    Trump lost the election but became president because the USA is not a real democracy. In a democracy it is one person one vote and the one with most votes gets the opportunity to form a government. In Europe we don't have to register to vote. When you are 18 or older, (We are even thinking of changing that soon to16 yrs. and older) you automatically receive your ballot(s) in the mail. In some countries even prisoners have the right to vote! A government cannot exclude people from voting. It is in our constitutions.

  • How dare Trump !! Trying to count only American Citizens in our Census.
    Ohhhhhh the humanity.
    Trump 2020 Landslide victory.

  • If he can’t delay the census he will scare them into not filling it out. That’s what the ICE raid announcement was all about.

  • Penboy as 'god' says:

    Go ahead, Trump ……. just try to delay the Census …. you know, just before the next presidential election. Go ahead, TRY …. I DARE YOU.

  • Trump has no idea what it is to act like a citizen. He just crossed into N.K. (no border wall to stop him) probably to ask Chairman Kim for asylum there.

  • Septembers Whisper says:

    We as a country have every right to know who is here legally and who is not, so we can accurately decide on the number of representatives each state gets and the correct amount of funding and representation.

  • DemocRats have always liked nothing better than to give out free Candy to certain 'Groups', before taking their hands and…leading them into the bushes…

    NOW those groups have developed artificially enhanced muscle from all the Candy eating but they want lots more Candy…for their…'favors',

    and the progressive Candy Eaters have grabbed hold of the DNC Candy Man and pulled the Perv into the Political Wilderness.

    Ya might say:… All liberalism starts behind 'a bush'…and ends in 'a Jungle'.

  • Charles Beaudry says:

    Proof is that US gov used census data to round up Japanese-American in WWII and supreme court even sided with government by sdmitting it was illegal yet allowed.

  • This just in: millions of Immigrant families found alive and well, and
    living comfortably in America, together, because they immigrated correctly )

  • "Trump doesn't like to read" . . . . I'm not sure that's factually correct. It's not that he doesn't like to read, it's just that it's very difficult for him. He no longer has the intellect or the mental capacity to read fluently or understand words of more than 2 syllables. Sayings he doesn't like to read is like saying a blind man doesn't like to look – as old people like Trump go downhill and lose their mental capacity, we should be sympathetic of their mental shortcomings and their increasing irrationlities, and, often, of their reversion to child-like behaviours such as temper tantrums and immature cruelty.

  • I am shocked, shocked, I tell you, to learn that the Trump Administration lied to try to get their way. This can't be true. The Trump Administration is the most honest Administration in the history of the world. I know because Sean Hannity told me so. Next they'll be telling us there's no Santa Claus, Easter Bunny, or Tooth Fairy

  • You know what I'm proud to mark I am a citizen apparently no one else is. Since when should Americans not expect to know who we are. Citizens.

  • has this MORON ever read anything?? Maybe Playboy but doubt he read the articles..This is our great leader..(not mine by the way) but his cult is as stupid as he is..

  • Sovereign Butterfly says:

    There's no anti-russian campaign! In fact I just moved from a state where many Russian immigrants were happily getting along with Americans.

    The Kazan Leviathan: Russian street gangs as agents of social order by Svetlana Stephenson explains in detail how deeply rooted Russia has an influence on our nation!

    Quoting "The period of the collapse of Soviet state socialism and the birth of a new capitalist society at the end of the 1980s and in the 1990s is often characterised in Russia as a time of bespredel [limitlessness or lawlessness] – an absence of any moral or legal regulation of social life. In the abnormality of this absence, people were at a loss as to how to navigate a world whose normative map was now torn apart, and in which previously unseen predators seemed to have surfaced and moved onto the central stage. Shady entrepreneurs, mafia groups

    and street gangs of young people represented a new frightening reality and reflected a slide into the rule of unbridled greed, violence and brute force."

    Thank you for that article it was extremely beneficial in understanding the changes we are seeing!

  • Oline Wright says:

    Thing is that it could depress numbers for the census also by legal immigrants because the government might decide to revoke their visa/residency papers.

  • Stop protecting illegal immigrants with this bs, if they were negroes nobody would care !! Thousands are drowning in the Mediterranean and don't even make a headline. 20 to 30 million Illegals include Asians and South Americans, that no one can call the minority!

  • George Hackett says:

    If they can't fiddle it one way, they will do it another. We gave him a seat, he sees a throne. Danger.

  • achim enssle says:

    i don't quite get it? I'm a Non Citizen ( green Card holder) i'm excluded anyway from voting! Green Card explicit grants me to vote up to State level, but the State denies me a voters registration so i can't vote! If i would vote illegally i could be fined $100000 per instance! I don't think any undocumented or documented immigrant would risk it!
    So what's the point here?

  • I am a citizen, born and raised but will not particpate in the census. It is not about the citizen anyway, it is about the Democrats and illegals.

  • Neal Katyal & Lawrence O'donnell —THANK YOU…I couldn't figure out why the census was so important to Trump and the Republicans and how they can take advantage of it!! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  • Michael Dodds says:

    Trump will delay the census and his enablers will support him. Simple as that. The law means nothing anymore.

  • Juju Rellama says:

    what's bugging fake news is, Trump will never go on their channels for anything, he is ignoring them. Their source of news is twitter.

  • Noemy Quinones says:

    Deceased G.O.P. Strategist's Hard Drives Reveal New Details on the Census Citizenship Question: lookup Thomas B. Hofeller (the New York times) He wrote a study in 2015 concluding that adding a citizenship question to the census would allow Republicans to draft even more extreme gerrymandered maps to stymie Democrats. And months after urging tump's transition team to tack the question onto the census, he wrote the key portion of a draft Justice Depat letter claiming the 1965 Voting Rights Act – the rationale the administration later used to justify its decision.

  • When will you wake up? Trump will do whatever he wants. Who will stop him? The dictator is in control! Why is McConnell still there? He and the dems protect the dictator. wake up! The media just plays along. Look what is happening in Hong Kong. Americans are wusses and Trump and McConnell know it. Home of the brave? HA! Have any of you read Orwell or Huxley or Lipton or Bradbury or Marx or Chomsky? America is finished. Still reliving WW2. Your freedom has been taken by the super rich oligarchs. They are controlling all elections not the Russians! It is impossible to get the uneducated to understand. MAGA? HA! No education, No freedom, No fortitude, no freedom!

  • Talk is cheap. I spent a lot of time in Korea. What have all you people to protect liberty? Talk? Talk? McConnell is still there! Trump is still there. Look up FDR's speech called "The Big Lie" Learned what happened in the 1930s when the communists and socialists formed unions and threatened revolution and ended up saving America. Americans are so dumb now that they actually hate communists, socialists and unions after years of corporate propaganda. If you don't educate yourselves you are finished and your freedom is over. Read Jefferson!!

  • Breaking: A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 64% of American Adults think the U.S. Census should ask respondents whether they are citizens of the United States. Just 28% disagree. These findings are little changed from January.

  • I see so now states like NY and CA can claim additional representation in congress they can say we have more people and gain representatives even though the districts are flooded with illegals.

  • Is the SCOTUS planning on making Real-ID illegal?? https://www.dhs.gov/real-id

    What documents are needed for a real ID?

    A: In order to apply for a REAL ID driver license or ID card, you must visit a DMV field office and submit federally required ID documents such as a U.S. passport, passport card, an original or certified copy of a birth certificate, also proof of social security number on a W-2, or paystub.

    Seems like asking for all that info is just like asking you if you are a US citizen.. LOL!

  • Impeach Trump now. Do not wait for his next set of Murder-us tactics.Taxes and Mueller=Complete Executtive Order over the Whole case.”He cant do that”.That is exactly why he will. It is also life/ for him.Impeach, Offense.120 Dems now , 240 by the end of the Vote.McConnel has closed the case,he is corrupt and he will do anything.Block a SCJ for11/2 years

  • You, media people have to use force.Failing the Senate is The Absolute reason we cant do it.A failed Impeachment Destroyed the Republican Party,and we took everything, some people went to jail over it.Clinto got a 73% approval after it.But, McConnel in his brutality has gifted us.The corrupt Senate does not touch the Impeach Vote.He closed the case said no to democrats bill to have Mueller testify, amd he will go all the way and reject a Trial.There are no rules at all.House Impeaches, Senate tries.Thats it.There is no Senate Must Try or House must hand over the 240-0 Record. We must go straight to the Court. That is what would happen if we won the Senate Trial and we would,if we did not have a cortupted Senate.New Prosecutor( willing to try a sitting President, because he is not a King),Grand Jury, Indictment, real Trial!
