President Trump on Thursday said he is no longer seeking to add a citizenship question to the 2020 Census, likely ending a contentious legal and political standoff over the decennial survey.
Instead Trump said he is ordering every federal agency to give the Commerce Department records on the numbers of citizens and noncitizens, including databases from the Homeland Security Department and the Social Security Administration.
Since the whole point of the exercise was to intimidate persons from answering the Census, so who gives a shit which agencies he asks to give him a wild-ass guess about the number of citizens. He lost, the end.
(Sorry to step on the other two posts but I wanted everyone to have a celebration thread.)
