Trump drops executive action on U.S. Census, will seek citizenship survey by other means
R ^ | 7/11/19 UPDATED AN HOUR AGO | Jeff Mason, David Shepardson

Posted on 07/11/2019 1:20:54 PM PDT by conservative98

A government official confirmed that Trump is expected to announce he will drop the legal battle to include the question on the census survey and instead direct the Commerce Department to obtain answers on citizenship through other means, but it was not clear how that would occur or how it would be funded.

The U.S. Census Bureau is part of the Commerce Department. The U.S. Constitution specifically assigns the job of overseeing the census to Congress, limiting the authority of the president over it, which complicates adding the question to the decennial survey via presidential missive.

Trump’s decision not to proceed with an executive order on adding the citizenship question to the census was first reported by ABC News.

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

Precisely. A separate accounting of illegals won’t matter as far as House Representation for the next decade.

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

I don’t need any more evidence that President Trump has very little control of the executive branch.

We are losing on demographics. The border is jammed open and the golden promises to lure more illegals by the Democrats continue. The rats are in open rebellion with all this obstruction and sanctuary cities and states. There will need to be a much more dramatic correction in America to save her.

Paying attention to a judge after the congress failed to override the emergency dec is a show he will not exercise his full power. All that cheerleading at the rallies and we get a weak ass effort.

secondly, where are the republican elders when this deleted hag opens her mouth.

I’ve decided that I won’t be participating in the Census without the citizenship question. Just to make up for the illegal citizens who answer the census.

I can take at least one of them out.

What happened to the executive order to counter Obama’s executive order. Oh never mind. How about deport the illegals? Oh, never mind.

In what reality would a question of citizenship be off limits for our government? Only in an upside down reality. It’s been on the census before.

In TX you probably want to be counted and increase the count unless you are in some liberal district.

Look. I will vote Trump. That doesn’t mean that I don’t see some hot air flowing. I just hope the rallies continue to hold.

n. In ancient Rome, a count of the citizens and an evaluation of their property for taxation purposes.

My issues were economy/jobs/stopping illegal, immigration/putting Hillary in jail/judges He’s getting a D- on immigration and an F on hillary. My vote for next year is dependent on him raising his grades in those two areas.
