Possible Inaccurate Census Survey

No doubt critics, who suspect President Donald Trump’s motives for tracking the number of citizens and non-citizens living in the United States in the 2020 census, have plenty of cause for concern.

If the proposal were coming from anyone other than a hardliner who has spent much of his political career maligning immigrants, it’d be much easier to come to the defense of his administration’s decision to include a question on the massive population count about citizenship.

Democrats have accused the president of trying to scare away immigrant populations from participating, a move that should reduce the population counts in historically liberal strongholds that have high immigrant populations.

At least 12 states are suing the Trump administration to block the decision.

As a matter of fact, the Census Bureau conducts surveys every year and know about how many foreign-born residents live in the United States.

However, it is far more likely that Trump’s anti-immigrant posturing already had inflicted the necessary damage to scare some from participating in the census forms that probably will be mailed out to residents.

An accurate census count is critical four our country. If our governments at the local, state and national level are best to serve us, we need the accurate data the census provides.

As for me, I will leave the citizenship question blank.
