Beware Soros-Funded Hijacking of US Census

George Soros tax cuts campaign US Census“Are you a U.S. citizen?”

Only in self-defeating, sovereignty-eroding America is the idea of asking whether people living in America are American citizens for the American census a matter of controversy.

On Tuesday, the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments on whether the Trump administration can include a citizenship question on the high-stakes 2020 census questionnaire. Thank goodness, the conservative majority indicated support for allowing it.

There’s already such a question on the annual American Community Survey administered by the Census Bureau. It was asked in long-form questionnaires sent to a sample of households in 2000. And it was regularly asked in historical census forms from 1820-1950.

But we live in a Trump-deranged age, so now it’s tantamount to an international human rights crime to ask anyone about citizenship status at any time for any reason. Heaven forbid we inconvenience or discomfit legal noncitizens or illegal immigrants with a question.

Open borders activists, left-wing immigration lawyers, and identity politics radicals exploded on cue:

—Former Obama Attorney General Eric Holder decried the “unconstitutional and irresponsible action” to “suppress the count in minority communities.”

—The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee fumed about the “political stunt that unfairly targets immigrant communities throughout our country in an attempt to SILENCE immigrants and benefit Republicans.”

—Histrionic social justice actress Alyssa Milano called it an “attack on immigrant communities and our democracy itself.”

—Jorge Luis Vasquez Jr. of LatinoJustice, funded by George Soros’ Open Society Foundations, vented that a citizenship question would “damage all our daily lives for decades.”

—Kristen Clarke, president of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, another Soros-funded outfit, which sued over the citizenship question, blasted the “scheme to hijack the 2020 Census.”

—The Soros-funded Asian Americans Advancing Justice lobbying group condemned President Donald Trump as “racially and politically motivated.”

Let’s all practice our deep pranayama breathing and ground ourselves in reality. It’s the radical left, much of it fueled with Soros’ money, that has hijacked the U.S. census, not Trump. “No Illegal Immigrant Left Behind” is crucial to its strategy. Why?

Remember: The census is used to divvy up seats in the House as a proportion of their population based on the head count. The redistribution of power extends to presidential elections because the Electoral College is pegged to the size of congressional delegations. More people equals more seats. More illegal immigrants equals more power.

Indeed, the Center for Immigration Studies determined that in the 2000 election cycle, the presence of noncitizens (illegal immigrants, temporary visitors, and green card holders) caused nine seats in the House to switch hands.

California added six seats it would not have had otherwise. Texas, New York, and Florida each gained a seat. Indiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin each lost a seat. Montana, Kentucky, and Utah each failed to secure a seat they would otherwise have gained.

Our Founding Fathers explicitly warned against the perils of foreigners manipulating representation by overwhelming the country. Immigration scholar and author Daniel Horowitz points to Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story’s prophetic admonition:

If aliens might be admitted indiscriminately to enjoy all the rights of citizens at the will of a single state, the Union might itself be endangered by an influx of foreigners, hostile to its institutions, ignorant of its powers, and incapable of a due estimate of its privileges.

Statesman Roger Sherman similarly emphasized the need to “guard against an improper mode of naturalization” by states adopting “easier terms.”

Too late. Multiple illegal immigrant amnesties, coupled with massive legal immigration, failure to deport visa overstayers, and the metastasis of sanctuary policies, have taken their toll.

Moreover, our constitutionally mandated decennial count has become a full-employment program for ideologically driven liberal interest groups cashing in on the census-gathering process and reshaping the electoral landscape.

During the last census under President Barack Obama, with $300 billion in federal funding at stake, social justice groups from Soros-funded ACORN to Soros-funded Voto Latino to the Soros-allied SEIU were enlisted to count heads and help noncitizens feel “safe.”

The census boondoggle has become a tax-subsidized national future Democratic voter outreach drive. Soros’ operations, along with 77 other liberal foundations, have invested $30 million to make illegal immigrants count.

The Open Society Institute’s grantees and partners on coopting the census for Democrat gains include the Southern Coalition for Social Justice, Miami Workers Center, Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Southwest Workers Union, New York Community Trust, New York Foundation, Center for American Progress, People for the American Way, and the Funders Census Initiative.

A recently leaked internal board document revealed that the Soros network has coordinated efforts for the past four years to “influence appropriations for the Census Bureau” and add new racial and ethnic categories.

The Census Bureau will need 500,000 temporary workers to conduct the count in what will already be a hyperpolarized election year. However the Supreme Court rules on the citizenship question, the Trump administration must ensure that Open Borders Inc. does not co-opt the enumerator corps.

As SorosWorld well understands: Power lies not just with who is being counted, but who’s doing the counting.

Look at who wants non-citizens counted? Democrats. Look who wants illegals to vote? Democrats. Look who want to destroy the Electoral College? Democrats. Look who always wants to gather more power FROM the people for their use? Democrats. Look who wants to put people’s medical care under government control? Democrats. Look who wants to disarm citizens? Democrats. There is NOTHING about the Democrat Party that is good for America. They are no different than Islam. Both want to destroy America. Both HATE America and everything it is and stands for in the world. Why would anyone who calls themselves a… Read more »

So…name just one other country that would tolerate this kind of nonsense, just one! As a nation we have lost our senses. Look at the group of Dems all vying to become president…not a one is interested in truly helping America. None of them is interested in balanced budgets and the national debt. All they want to power. Everyone of them are lying to Americans and promising to give them more, all with other people’s money. We need to be thinking about service and self-sacrifice so future generations of AMERICANS can enjoy and prosper from those who came before (think… Read more »

In researching my Ancestry, I have looked at many census documents. They asked citizenship, legality of presence in country, country of origin, fluency in English, level of education, employment status, and many other things that would, today, be considered by the left as politically incorrect. We should be asking ALL of these questions and perhaps more. IF illegals don’t want to answer the questions, fine, don’t answer them and don’t be counted. If California loses a couple of seats, so be it. An honest census is essential to our representative form of government. I only hope the Supreme Court can… Read more »

Why are felons in government, responsible for so many illegal actions not prosecuted? Allowing the continuous assault on the constitution and the earnings of hard working legal citizens guarantees the catastrophic failure of any nation.

SOROS is America’s number one enemy (other than Hillary, Obummer, Pelosi etc.). Soros is constantly involved in TREASON against our country. IMHO He should be caught shot or hung but I don’t see any of that happening. WHY NOT???????

In the socialists One World Order there are no borders, no citizens, no immigrants. There only exist the Central Socialist Planners and the Socialist Servants. Each and every task initiated by persons such as Soros is designed to implement the One World Order and its two tiered class system. A simple question on the census about citizenship can delay the socialist agenda. If they can control what is asked on the census then they can control the Supreme Court, Congress, and if they have their way in 2020, the President. If that occurs the Constitution will be shredded and we… Read more »

There in lies the reason for the Russian Collusion, Green New Deal, HR 1, and all the other ludicrous ideas of the Socialist Left. Keep them looking to the far left while they do an end around. These people hate our country and our way of life. Socialism is communism plain and simple. If anyone colluded with the Russians it was the Socialist Democrats for instructional purposes. The good Samaritan that stopped the carjacking on CBS news should have been arrested for being a vigilante for stopping a crime just like the militia groups stopping ILLEGAL Immigrants from crossing our… Read more »
