Posted on 07/11/2019 7:50:57 PM PDT by Hostage
President Donald Trump announced Thursday hell be issuing an executive order directing federal agencies to provide the Commerce Department with records pertaining to the number of citizens and noncitizens in our country. Speaking to reporters from the White House Rose Garden, Trump said his administration is not backing down on our effort to determine the citizenship status of the United States population. While Attorney General William Barr said the citizenship question would not be included on the 2020 census, Trump detailed what his administration will do instead.
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 noncitizens in our country, Trump said, as ABC News reported. They must furnish all legally accessible records in their possession immediately. We will utilize these vast federal databases to gain a full, complete, and accurate count of the noncitizen population.
Amen and amen
It makes me so happy to reflect on the apoplectic consternation of John Roberts. #chagrin
Improvise. Adapt. Overcome.
I love President Trump.
There’ll never be another like him. I’m not looking forward to the changing of the guard.
"This is the President of the Century, courageous, tireless, focused, formidable, positive to all things patriotic. Conservatives could not wish for better; it doesn't get better than this."
Beautiful to see how he keeps keeping at it for us.
He is a wonder.
This is pure genius on the part of the Trump Administration.
This information can be put together relatively quickly and well before 2020 census is even out
The number of illegals will be a shock to many
news from this afternoon, not breaking
Not enough! The census is what is used to determine representation as well as electoral vote power. It would be great to know actual counts, but knowing is only half the goal.
His speech and reasoning sounded very good to me.
There will be a fight, but Trump knows it’s a political winner for him whether he wins or loses in the courts.
“They must furnish all legally accessible records in their possession immediately. We will utilize these vast federal databases to gain a full, complete, and accurate count of the noncitizen population.”
Sounds like Trump is gathering summary statistics. It would be better to have a database of illegal alien names. I hope that is where he is going rather than just gathering stats.
Problem is, the census will be the basis for determining congressional representation stzte by state. We lose on this one since blue states full of illegals will get more representation.
God bless President Trump
Right. The ACS, which is conducted continuously, probably gives at least as good numbers as the full census, but this isn't about knowing who's a citizen, it's about shifting the political field.
His second term will be no lame duck. He remarked a year back that a successor plan was prepared. Successors are always planned for in successful corporations.
A corporate leader who inspires the workforce and leads a company to success after success is REQUIRED to have a successor that is preapproved to carry on the corporate mission.
President Trump knew going in that all the hard work would be for nothing if there wasn’t an able successor being readied in the wings
If he fails in this effort, I will burn my census form as I live in a blue shithole illegal infested shitty.
Ok. so he gets the info from other sources..
Can that info be used when it comes to who gets how many house seats?
that is part of the big battle over the census. Democrats know they will lose house seats in blue states to red states.
