Simple question: Why would the Democrats not want you to know
how many illegals are living in this country? Hmm.
Itís time for Final Thoughts.
The left is outraged over the Trump administrationís decision to
include a citizenship question on the 2020 census. Actually,
they're outraged over nearly everything our president does. But
this is silly, even for them.
So what flimsy reason did they give this time? They claim
illegals will be deterred from participating in the headcount if
asked about their immigration status. Democrats say the question
is racist, bigoted, and claim it's intolerant to ask about
But thatís not why this really bothers them. Oh, no.
So what's the real reason?
Well, the census provides data that guides how hundreds of
billions of federal program dollars are distributed. It also
determines how many seats each state has in the House of
Representatives - and with that, the Electoral College votes for
So yep, you guessed it: They're worried about votes, elections,
and losing power where they have it.
Look, we get it Democrats: You gleefully allow your cities to be
overrun by illegal immigrants. But people who are by law not
allowed to vote should not be given any representation in
Congress. Heck, they shouldnít even be here in the first place.
Take California for example - the poster state for this
sanctuary insanity. The not-so Golden state has decided to roll
out the red carpet for illegals - giving them rights, benefits,
and protection from the law - making the state a haven for some
2.5 million illegals - about six percent of Californiaís
Think that doesnít burden the state? Think they donít receive
money from you - the legal American taxpayer? Think again.
A survey of income and program participation showed 62 percent
of households headed by illegal immigrants are receiving some
type of federal assistance. Thatís more than twice the
percentage for households headed by native-born Americans,
according to the study.
How do they get away with it? Many work the system through their
American-born children. And not only are the Democrats okay with
that; they want to maximize their gains by making sure as many
illegal immigrants participate in the census as possible. The
more people counted, the more seats in Congress.
Illegals should not determine representation or federal funding.
And sorry, Democrats, the American people deserve to know who is
in this country and who we're paying for. And if that upsets
your voting bloc, well, that's just too dang bad!
Those are my Final Thoughts. From LA, God bless and take care.
