    As much as he wanted to go “full banana republic” and add the citizenship question to the Census despite losing the SCOTUS case, Baghdad Barr must have convinced him that he would lose again for sure. So, Trump surrendered.

    Of course, Trump being Trump, he lies and pretends that he can accomplish the same thing through data reporting by other agencies - something that was in the works already to “estimate” citizenship. But, Trump lost, plain and simple.

    The ironic part is that Trump lost the SCOTUS case for one reason - he and his toadies got busted lying to the courts about the reason they wanted to add the question to the Census. Turns out that Trump’s lying sometimes carries a cost.

    Not that Trump will cease his relentless lying - it’s his lifetime M.O.

    ;-)

    Trump hates losing so much that, when he does lose, he just pretends he didn’t. He fancies himself as a tinpot dictator, but sometimes the courts remember that we’re supposed to have a system of laws. That infuriates Trump.

    I love it when Dems cheer and pat themselves on the back for cheering against our country.
    Gives me the warm fuzzies and reminds me I’m on the proper side.

    Against our fearful, racist president and against our country are two very different things.

    Accurate meaning what, to you? How many citizens live in our country? And how many non-citizens?

    That would be accurate to me..

    The census counts people. And the citizenship question was scaring off people from participating.

    Baloney. Your side was dead silent while Obama was busy locking kids in cages, deporting people hand over fist and conducting increased security measures on immigrants from predominantly Islamic countries.
    No controversy or cries of “racism!”
    Just doesn’t fly now.

    Bullshit.
    You’re doing everything in your power to get illegals accounted for so they can vote and have equal representation.

    Whether the citizenship was on there or not, they still get counted in the census. Removing the citizenship question just makes the census more accurate.

    But that’s incidental to the Democrats goal. The census gives them immediate representation and it’s a short walk to them voting. That’s the Holy Grail of the permanent Democrat majority and our clear path to being a Third World nation.
    Mission accomplished!

    I'm afraid that the damage has already been done and we'll be left with an inaccurate count of all residing in the USA in 2020.....thanks to Trump/Republican racism, xenophobia and MAWA.
    Even those blond and blue-eyed undocumented immigrants will be afraid to answer the census.

    SCOTUS called Trump's rationale to add a citizenship question CONTRIVED.
    I was impressed that a clerk took out his thesaurus to find synonyms for LIED and found a fancy word to say the same thing. :)

    There was nothing patriotic about Team Trump’s antics with the Census, that were motivated by a desire to further rig the congressional apportionment system. There was certainly nothing patriotic about their outright lying to the courts.

    as posted America was a "full banana republic" before Barry O removed question in 2010 and leftist go "winner"

    If Chicago protected their blacks as they do illegals, oh well:

    The Census question had nothing to do with giving illegal immigrants the right to vote.

    Of course Democrats are already letting illegals vote in local and school board issues. It’s a short path to allow “all taxpayers” to vote and the Democrats know it.

    By the time I’m right about this it will be far too late to stop it. The Dems are pushing this HARD and trying it on every level.

    And four SCOTUS justices - the diehard GOP hacks - would have let Trump do it despite KNOWING that they lied to the courts.

    Deplorable.
