    Trump has ordered federal “big data”, who writes the checks and manages the programs, to compile the data and get what is probably a more accurate count of who is here illegally.

    How can democrats advertise benefits for illegal aliens when no one has any idea how many are here?
    Mad Maxine told us six years ago how Trump is going to be able to get the information he wants. Of course, she had no idea, six years ago, that Trump would be the President. If she did, she would have demanded that Obama's database be destroyed.

    And what will this information be used for?

    We get this information every year on the ACS.. Why is this not adequate? What will be the outcome of finding out how many illegal aliens we have in the country? Intellectual curiosity?

    Except that's not what the "intent" of the Citizens question was EVER about; and the SC slapped his wrist and told him his stated reason was UN-Constitutional.
    A GREAT America is an America that makes the MOST AmeriCANs ... GREAT!!
    I will not entertain the notion that Donald Trump's vision of the world can ever prevail, that one evil man can erase thousands of years of the evolution of civilized society.

    Yeah I keep hearing that Democrats are overplaying the Nazi angle.
    Maybe some of us just have long memories.

    They called themselves "America Firsters" but lots of folks knew them as The Bund.

    It might be a WTF moment. Or maybe it won’t, the only thing that will have changed is that now we have some idea of how many illegals are in the country.
    Antifa’s job is to do the democrats dirty work.

    We have a pretty good idea every year based on the American Community Survey... What exactly would be accomplished having this information?

    Why play their game?

    It was already revealed who, and why, the quesiton was suggested as something to put on the Census. There is no question what they want it for, there is no need to ask someone...anyone. To ask someone is to ignore the fact that it's already known, fits motive, fits the facts, etc.
