Is the citizen citizenship question Trump wants to add to the census just a ploy to not count legal residents?

I'm afraid that they will only count those with citizenship and not include lawful and legal permanent residents (Green Card) holders for redistricting purposes. They might want to make it easier to gerrymander in favor of Republicans.

    It was a ploy. And it's not going to happen. Trump finally threw in the towel.

    They can not come up with any legitimate reason to include the question so the court will not allow it

    He probably wants to add it in order to smoke out illegal residents and have them threatened with deportation.

    They have to count everyone. Gerrymandering is a state issue PER the Supreme Court last week, it will have nothing to do with the national census.

    WHY are we not allowed to know what percentage of our nation are non-citizens, legal or no?

    We are entitled to know who is in our country. Period. The fact the Democrats do not want us to know who is in our country shows their treason.
