Damn. The Census determines representation, not meaningless surveys. Tired of caving to the Left.

No good. The census is used to determine apportionment of the House, not a survey.

Looks like the immigration enforcement vehicle Trump uses only has three gears, all operating in reverse.

So the census taker goes door to door...."Are you a citizen?"

Hands out the Form. Or does not.

I agree, the two things we need to get under control to save the republic.

Immigration and the effect illegals have on house seats

Spending

On both issues trump as so far failed

A survey is squat compared to a census that counts everyone and determines congressional apportionment.
