    AOC Asks Commerce Secretary Why Feds Are ‘Violating the Law’ to Include Citizenship Question on 2020 Census

    During a House Oversight Committee hearing on Thursday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) grilled Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross on his involvement in the decision to include the citizenship question on the 2020 Census.


    Ocasio-Cortez asked Ross about whether he discussed including the question on the Census with Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach.


    “Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach mentioned by my colleague was noted by the New York Times as laboring long and hard in his career, notably in the areas of voter suppression and nativism. He stated last year that he encouraged President Trump to add a question about citizenship during the Census during the early weeks of Trump’s presidency,” Ocasio-Cortez said.


    “Kobach said ‘I raised the issue with the president shortly after he was inaugurated,’ and ‘he was absolutely interested in this.’ Shortly thereafter in April of 2017, Steve Bannon asked you to speak to Mr. Kobach about his ‘ideas about including a citizenship question on the 2020 decennial Census. Did you speak with Mr. Kobach about his ideas on the citizenship question?” she asked.



    Ross noted that Kobach discussed the issue with the secretary, saying, “Kris Kobach did have a conversation with me. He said he had a question he would like us to ask.”


    “I’m sorry. I must reclaim my time. Mr. Kobach later sent an email to you on July 14th writing that the lack of the citizenship question ‘leads to the problem that aliens who do not actually reside in the United States are still counted for congressional apportionment services.’ Of course, they do reside in the United States. They reside in my district. They’re my constituents, but he then wrote ‘it is essential that one simple question be added to the upcoming 2020 Census,” Ocasio-Cortez said.


    “It’s all there in black and white,” she said. “Kobach is clear about his reason for adding the citizenship question in his correspondence to you. It has nothing to do with the DOJ. It has nothing to do with the Voting Rights Act. It is about congressional apportionment to immigrants, but following that email and its concerning contents, did you cut off all contact with Mr. Kobach or did you speak with him again?”

    They are in violation of the law, plus Ross has lied about this repeatedly.

    I guess that's funny somehow

    Oh.

    I did not know the United States government signed a law forbidding asking citizens answering the Census if they were citizens of the United States.

    But they can ask how many refrigerators we have, because every refrigerator's vote matters

    I'm wondering if the question was added for nefarious purposes, like finding out how many people in the country are citizens.

    It is such an awful thing to ask, isn't it?

    Especially when it's a felony to lie on the Census?

    How about if some Rodents explain what is so awful about asking citizenship?

    To make things worse for the Rodents, how about if you post an answer that makes sense?

    What if another question was "Are you registered to vote? If yes, in how many places?"

    How can illegal aliens be her "constituents"? Can they vote for her? Do they vote for her? Does she understand the difference between a citizen and a non citizen?
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    The census should NOT include illegals in the redistricting formulas.

    If by "can" do you mean "have the physical ability to", then yes, they can.

    And somehow that witch Hillary claimed to have more votes than the American...how? Illegally, of course.
