[Ed. – This question has appeared on all U.S. census questionnaires throughout history. It was discontinued by Barack Obama in 2010.]
It was way back in March when Twitchy first reported on the Commerce Department’s announcement that the Trump administration would be adding a question on citizenship to the 2020 census.
Progressive heads began exploding immediately, from the chair of the DNC to California’s attorney general to Eric Holder to the Atlantic’s Vann R. Newkirk II, who accused the Trump administration of “weaponizing” the U.S. census to pander to white nationalists and anti-immigrants.
We don’t know if Sen. Kamala Harris owes Newkirk royalties or at least a shout-out for stealing his line, but on Friday, she again was up in arms over the weaponization of the U.S. census by adding a question about citizenship.
Plenty have brought it up before, but the more she tweets, the more Harris really makes us wonder: does she prioritize the rights of legal U.S. citizens over illegal immigrants at all? Ever?
