It’s about two things: a census question asking about citizenship status and potentially MILLIONS of illegal votes that heavily favor Democrats every election cycle.
The Trump administration wants a better idea of how many illegals are actually living in the United States while Democrats are feigning outrage that he would dare attempt to have that information while going so far as to call it racist.
…Democrats fear the question will reduce census participation in immigrant-heavy communities. They say they want specific documents to determine why Ross added the citizenship question to the 2020 census and contend the Trump administration has declined to provide them despite repeated requests.
…“The census is critical to our democracy and it is critical to every single one of our constituents,” Cummings said.
Cummings postponed a planned vote Wednesday morning to allow lawmakers time to read the Justice Department letters.
Ross told the committee the decision in March 2018 to add the question was based on a Justice Department request to help it enforce the Voting Rights Act.
Did you catch what Congressman Cummings unintentionally disclosed when he publicly claimed having a citizenship question in the census would “reduce census participation” in immigrant-heavy communities?
HE’S ADMITTING TO MILLIONS OF PEOPLE LIVING IN THE U.S. ILLEGALLY – AND LIKELY VOTING IN OUR ELECTION.
Some readers might recall the concern by some that millions of illegals voted in the 2016 Election as was outlined in this report by Investors.com:
But, in fact, it’s almost certain that illegals did vote — and in significant numbers. Whether it was three million or not is another question.
While states control the voter registration process, some states are so notoriously slipshod in their controls (California, Virginia and New York — all of which have political movements to legalize voting by noncitizens — come to mind) that it would be shocking if many illegals didn’t vote. Remember, a low-ball estimate says there are at least 11 million to 12 million illegals in the U.S., but that’s based on faulty Census data. More likely estimates put the number at 20 million to 30 million.
…A 2014 study in the online Electoral Studies Journal shows that in the 2008 and 2010 elections, illegal immigrant votes were in fact quite high.
“We find that some noncitizens participate in U.S. elections, and that this participation has been large enough to change meaningful election outcomes including Electoral College votes, and congressional elections,” wrote Jesse T. Richman, Gulshan A. Chattha, both of Old Dominion University, and David C. Earnest of George Mason University.
More specifically, they write, “Noncitizen votes likely gave Senate Democrats the pivotal 60th vote needed to overcome filibusters in order to pass health care reform and other Obama administration priorities in the 111th Congress.”
Specifically, the authors say that illegals may have cast as many as 2.8 million votes in 2008 and 2010. That’s a lot of votes. And when you consider the population of illegal inhabitants has only grown since then, it’s not unreasonable to suppose that their vote has, too.
Why else would Democrats be so concerned about a truly accurate census that helps confirm there are as many as 30 million illegals living in the United States? Assuming at least 10-20% of those are voting also indicates some 3 to 6 million illegal votes being cast in our elections.
How ironic that the political party that created the Trump-Russia collusion hoax is the very same political party that also demands nothing be done to remedy all of those illegal votes because the vast majority of those votes benefit Democrat/socialist candidates.
Elijah Cummings just now all but admitted as much which means he is advocating for millions of votes of U.S. citizens being canceled out by the votes of illegals.
What a horrible thing to have come to America LEGALLY from places like India, Iraq, Mexico, or Kenya, to go through the long and arduous process of acquiring citizenship and the right to vote, only to then have that vote rendered meaningless by the votes of those here illegally.
And shame on any politician who would support such a system.
