    See: U.S. Constitution - Article 1 Section 2 - The U.S. Constitution Online - USConstitution.net
    Article 1 - The Legislative Branch
    Section 2 - The House
    <<Back | Table of Contents | Next>>
    The House of Representatives shall be composed of Members chosen every second Year by the People of the several States, and the Electors in each State shall have the Qualifications requisite for Electors of the most numerous Branch of the State Legislature.
    No Person shall be a Representative who shall not have attained to the Age of twenty five Years, and been seven Years a Citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an Inhabitant of that State in which he shall be chosen.
    (Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers, which shall be determined by adding to the whole Number of free Persons, including those bound to Service for a Term of Years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three fifths of all other Persons.) (The previous sentence in parentheses was modified by the 14th Amendment, section 2.) The actual Enumeration shall be made within three Years after the first Meeting of the Congress of the United States, and within every subsequent Term of ten Years, in such Manner as they shall by Law direct. The Number of Representatives shall not exceed one for every thirty Thousand, but each State shall have at Least one Representative; and until such enumeration shall be made, the State of New Hampshire shall be entitled to chuse three, Massachusetts eight, Rhode Island and Providence Plantations one, Connecticut five, New York six, New Jersey four, Pennsylvania eight, Delaware one, Maryland six, Virginia ten, North Carolina five, South Carolina five and Georgia three.
    And as you see, nothing in there limiting representation to citizens or on the basis of immigration status.
    Therefore, since the world has still/Much good, but much less good than ill,
    And while the sun and moon endure/Luck's a chance, but trouble's sure,
    I'd face it as a wise man would,/And train for ill and not for good.

    The Coming Democratic Meltdown: AG Barr Says He Found A Way to Get Key Citizenship Question On Census
    July 8, 2019 ~ By Matt Vespa
    Cue the meltdown because one looks like one could hit liberal America very soon. We’ve been haggling over the citizenship question in the 2020 census. It’s been asked before in past surveys. As the Department of Justice was ordered to look into ways to include the key question, AG Barr recently announced that a path might have been found (via Post and Courier ): Attorney General Barr tells SC reporters he's found a legal recourse on Census question | News | postandcourier.com
    Again, the Democrats are going to go ballistic, so grab some popcorn. We’ll see what happens.


    Comment:
    I have no problem with illegals being counted... it's nice to know where they're at so we can direct our ICE resources to the right areas. I have a problem with illegals being used for apportionment of Congressional Districts. Besides... Progressive Marxist Socialists/DSA Democrats shouldn't need the illegals with all the dead people they have voting. The Constitution demands that a citizenship question be included on the decadal census. (See: Article 1, Section 2, "The 3/5ths Compromise"). Now, this might seem a strange place to start, but bear with me because the 3/5th compromise is relevant to the constitutional amendment which articulates the need for the citizenship question. That amendment is the 14th Amendment which provided full citizenship for everyone regardless of race. Section '1' of the 14th Amendment defines the criteria for being a U.S. citizen and also states that anyone who is a U.S. citizen is a citizen in all states.
    None of this matters. The census is suppose to count permanent inhabitants. It doesn't matter if they are citizens or not, nor does it matter if they are legally in the US or not. If they are permanently living within the jurisdiction of the US, then they need to be counted for apportionment purposes. The US Constitution specifically states that we should be counting "free persons," not just citizens. Meaning all permanent inhabitants currently in the US.

    Clause 1 of the Fourteenth Amendment says anyone who is born within the jurisdiction of the US is a US citizen. US citizenship is different from State resident status. Most States require someone to reside in the State for a minimum of a year before granting them resident status. They are still US citizens, just not residents of that State yet if they haven't lived in that State long enough.

    This question and reaction to the citizen question, comes down to the ability to be truthful on the census, versus the need to be vague. People of honest intent are not afraid of the truth. Those who are afraid of the truth, fear the truth will undermine a scam they hope to run. The Democrats do not care about the immigrants. They care about the scam they hope to run.

    A better way to do this is instead of a direct citizen question, we can use a number of innocuous questions from which one can infer things. For example, how long have you been in the USA? We have the exact numbers for legal immigration. One can infer illegals from this data. This does not ask if you are a citizen, or are here legally, but still allows one to guess bulk numbers. It is less threatening.

    Wrong.... It's all about the number of U.S. Representatives to Congress. The census also depends on the funds cities and states receive by the Federal gov't. The census needs to be accurate and citizenship versus non-citizenship is at the core. We the People have a Right To Know.....

    He's using it to help his own party. That's why the SCOTUS ruled against him.

    Can you furnish a link for that. Citizens are required to file Federal and State income taxes that require the use of their Social Security number, in lieu of a SSN, an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) is required. This nine digit number is similar to the Social Security number but can only be used for filing income taxes. For example Foreigners with green cards, work visas or education visas can apply. Naturally illegal aliens do not apply for ITIN. Illegal aliens use phony SSN's and they due pay city and state taxes when purchasing taxable items. Using a phony or someone else's SSN is illegal and considered identity theft and is punishable by law.

    Former President Bill Clinton’s Department of Commerce asked about citizenship in their 2000 census. What is striking in the 2010 census form is the lack of citizenship or birthplace question. The inclusion of place of birth and citizenship has been included for more than 150 years. However the annual American Community Survey (ACS), a lesser-known tabulation conducted by the Census Bureau, asked recipients about their citizenship status every year during the Obama administration. For each person in the household, the survey asks, “Is this person a citizen of the United States?” The form offers five options for participants. The Obama administration asked ACS recipients for all relevant Census information, including citizenship status in every year of its incumbency.

    SCOTUS rejected his effort to aid his party. If the new rules are that the executive can defy the SCOTUS, then it's game on for the next Democratic administration.

    If an invalid ssn is used for tax withholding, the IRS tells the employer. That’s it. As for ITN, here is the IRS specifically saying it is for undocumented workers: https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-utl/20-I...20Taxation.pdf
