Bill Barr Takes New Approach on Counting Aliens in the Census

US Department of Justice

Bill Barr is rolling out a new strategy to make sure that the citizenship question is included in the 2020 Census. The Washington Examiner reports:

Attorney General William Barr said Monday that the Justice Department has a new legal strategy for adding a question about citizenship status onto the 2020 census, according to a new report.

“I think over the next day or two you’ll see what approach we’re taking,” Barr told reporters in South Carolina. “And I think it does provide a pathway for getting the question on the census.”

The attempt by the Justice and Commerce departments to add the question was struck down by a recent 5-4 Supreme Court decision.

The comments from Barr follow Justice Department spokeswoman Kerri Kupec announcing that the DOJ was switching up its legal team in the census case. “As will be reflected in filings tomorrow in the census-related cases, the Department of Justice is shifting these matters to a new team of Civil Division lawyers going forward,” Kupec said in a statement to the Washington Examiner.

The Supreme Court did not firmly rule on the citizenship question, only that the current rationale did not meet its stated requirements. With a new team, chances of the citizenship question being allowed on the census just rose dramatically, as that question has been asked in previous censuses.

Good this should be on all legal papers, because if your not citizen you have no right to own a house,car, or even hold a job here unless on a visa for a co. we need to get more protective of this country and anyone that comes here, we have let to many Anti-Americans in here, don’t think so go Dearborn Mi. You will see what this government has done we need that place cleared out, they celebrated 3 days when the towers went down

The thing is, it is not the Supreme Courts job to say if the reason is good enough or not. Their job is to say if it is legal and constitutional or not.

James: Hello. Yes. The Supreme Court has NO business making political calls. The “cheef justice” Roberts has been the “cheef court politician” for the last 10 years. Note the “coincidence”. 10.5 years ago the usurper obummer showed up to destroy Our Country [it is NOT his, as obummer is still an illegal. ]

And they did say it was Constititional. That should be case closed. After all, juries convict people of murder every day, based upon evidence presented and the law. No motive necessary.

it is going to take rifle fire to get the communists out of our government. since 1960 the democrats have been slowly edging in the marxist doctrine into the government operations. they killed Kennedy, then LBJ.tool over and EVERYTHING went down-hill after that.

The Democrats/Leftists/Liberals/Socialists keep pointing to Europe as an example of open borders, but what they fail to mention is that although you can freely travel between countries in Europe you cannot take up residency in the country of your choice just because you think they have the best welfare system. You must first ask permission of that country if in fact, you can take up residence. If your country of choice happens to be Mexico, god only knows why you would do that, you must Prove that you will not become a burden to the state. So why is it OK for the rest of the world to restrict access to their country and inhumane when the United States tries to do the same? The Immigration problem is just one more way the Democrats/Leftists/Liberals/Socialists try to distract the American People from seeing that they have spent the past two years Obstructing every action taken by President Trump to eliminate the Doctrine started by the obama Socialist Regime and continued by these self same Democrats/Leftists/Liberals/Socialists who are more concerned with their own power, or currently the lack of power, that they are willing to sacrafice this Constitutional Republic just to get that power back. God Bless America, if we ever needed his blessing we need it now.

Now once the Supreme court has a bitter taste in its mouth because Trump lied about why he wanted the question on the Census, I do think that it would be like appearing before a judge that has proven you lied to him about a question asked.
I may be surprised but I do think that if it comes back to the court it might be a 6 to 3 decision, from reading at least one other Justice was not fully satisfied who voted in favor the last time.

We need to get this census question on a document that is very important to the taxpayers of this country. We also need a change of Chief Justice in the Supreme Court while we are at it. I think Justice Thomas would be a great Chief Justice.

The Trump administration is trying to use the 2020 census for its own narrow political purposes. It knows the citizenship question will result in an under count in blue areas and to Trump political advantage is more important than an accurate census.

When did it change that we don’;t have to show ID to vote? I remember clearly having to show my ID to vote but then all of a sudden it was not asked for anymore.
