    Trump about to make an announcement from the Rose Garden

    The announcement is going to be about the citizenship question. No doubt he's going to announce that he'll sign an executive order that it be added.

    If this is about health care for immigrants, I need to beg the question one more time as I have dozens of times, why hasn't Congress moved forward on immigration reform. This has to be a bipartisan bill. Trump really needs to caucus with leaders of Central America and come up with something. Congress needs to get a bill on immigration reform passed that will satisfy both sides and that will actually work.

    Re: Trump about to make an announcement from the Rose Garden

    I'll be curious to see if the GOP leadership stays quiet on this one. It seems beyond silly to me.

    They lost in SCOTUS in a way that's arguable, but I understand there's no time to win that fight and also redo the questionnaire for this census, and that it is already being produced without this question.

    Yet another unnecessary Trump fight with no purpose.

    Because the sad truth is that both sides cynically hold immigration hostage to use it as a bargaining chip and now, for a voting bloc to replace the black vote.

    Totally true. However, we also need to say clearly, this will be a massive issue. IDK how he can executive order his way around the SCOTUS.

    I'm no lawyer, let alone a Constitutional one, but I hope he finds a way to prevail. Legally, of course.

    I hope he fails, because the constitution doesn't say anything about legal status. I want to see fair and open elections, not rule rigged elections designed for one political party to fix the game and constantly force the conversation to one side.

    Why? What does putting the citizenship question gain for you?
    The census is a head count not a citizen count.

    Ah, yes, who stands to gain? That's the real question.
    I believe that we Americans have a right to know how many non citizens are in our country and I believe with 100% certainty that the Democrats' cynical ploy to keep the question off the census is because they believe they will benefit by getting more representation in Congress.

    I hope that his attempt to undercount the census fails. If he ignores the SCOTUS, the next administration should throw out the tainted census data and conduct a new one. Since the executive branch can apparently do whatever it wants now, this should be doable.
