Guys, Hair Füror has signed a memo to prohibit the government from counting undocumented immigrants when it uses the 2020 Census to allocate political representation. And before we get too fair into his Pocket Nazi’s latest grab, let’s remember that the Prznint has no authority over the Census, this memo about scaring undocumented immigrants out of participating in this year’s census. And it is likely to work!
(Yes, I know: memos do not have the weight of law, but it will make headlines.)
The Constitution explicitly requires Census takers to count every person living in the country, regardless of their immigration status. The definition of a person was solved, oh, about 1868, so I don’t think anyone wants to go there.
Anyway, Hair Füror has instructed Commerce Secretary Wilbur ‘Zzzzzzz’ Ross to exclude undocumented immigrants from the numbers when allocating seats in Congress, which will ensure
White Power, er, Possum Hollar will hold its kung-fu grip for a while longer.
Expect law suits. Plenty of ’em.
