President Issues an Executive Order with a New Approach to Citizenship

10

President Trump has a new plan to gather information about the citizenship status of people living in the United States, both legal and illegal. He made the announcement in the Rose Garden this afternoon.

The census is already printing and it’s expensive. Also, if he tries to add the citizenship question, it will be stopped in the courts. There simply isn’t enough time to add the citizenship question to the census.

Working with Attorney General Barr, the President has come up with a different plan to find out how many non-citizens we have living in the United States.

Trump said that he has directed several agencies to begin using their databases to compile relevant data.

“I am hereby ordering every department and agency in the federal government to provide the Department of Commerce with all requested records regarding the number of citizens and noncitizens in our country,” Trump said “They must furnish all legally accessible records in their possession immediately. We will utilize these vast federal databases to gain a full, complete, and accurate count of the noncitizen population.”

It will be a more complete picture of non-citizens that we have had in decades, the Attorney General said.

This new approach will give a more accurate count of who is here. Attorney General Bill Barr said the count will possibly be used to determine voting districts.

CBS News says it’s just a public relations ploy. One reason they say that is there is no direct interview of individuals. Maybe they’re right, but maybe not. The President and the Attorney General do get things done.

Democrats and some Republicans don’t want Americans to know how many non-citizens are in the country. They’re almost traitors.

  1. This could be a very smart move by Trump, if the IRS and SSA turn over the info asked for, SSA issues 3 different types of SS cards, #1 for citizens, #2 for none citizens, but have a legal right to work here (work visa’s) #3 for none citizens who do not have permission to work in the U.S.(it says that on issued card) but need the SS card for other Gov. benefits (yeah WTH is that sh*t about), people who are here illegally often use false social security numbers or ones that belong to other people. Then many file their income tax returns using a special number provided by the IRS.( ITIN, or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number) Those immigrants can file their taxes without fear of deportation as the IRS doesn’t report their illegal status to homeland security.Why doesn’t the agency report the person’s status to Homeland Security, which spends billions patrolling the border to prevent illegal immigration? Under IRS code, the agency doesn’t share citizenship information with immigration or other federal agencies , well we will see if these agencies comply with the Department of Commerce request, it would be a much more accurate map of citizens and non-citizens tan a census question that I believe most wouldn’t answer truthfully with all the immigration BS going on today!!!!!!!!

  2. Can someone tell me why they waited until the eleventh hour to get the question on the census in the first place? How long is it going to take to go through the databases before we get a solid headcount? They’ll be pouring through driver’s license records. That couldn’t come at a better time with the blue states issuing driver’s licenses to illegals….

    • From Looms to computers. This excerpt from the program Connections shows the first mechanical computer (Tabulator) for the census around 1890. It became the IBM punch cards later on.

      If the speed of this is done with mechanical systems imagine today with high speed digital computers. Querying a database is quite simple and is similar to that mechanical era. Databases have languages that facilitate such operations, which is the purpose of using them. It’s no different than typing something into Google and getting the result.

  3. I’m waiting for Nadler to Explode in a rage. When I first heard Trump was scrapping the case I was sorely disappointed. I couldn’t see any possibility to rebound from this. Then… Trump mentioned “databases”. Whoa, that’s going to cause a fury. It was during the whole DACA debate that Democrats had deep concerns about the Administration using,, “databases”. The general public probably doesn’t realize how extensive Government databases are. There have been numerous hearings regarding different databases. The Democrats and their allies would probably have been much better off letting the Census question go through. Once again their efforts have Backfired, “big league”.

      • This is strictly an administrative move so there’s nothing a court or even Congress can do about it. Nadler may “try” to do something but just as the Executive cannot interfere with Congress so it is with this. It Will be interesting to see if the House will try something or someone attempts some court action.
