The actual Enumeration shall be made within three Years after the first Meeting of the Congress of the United States, and within every subsequent Term of ten Years, in such Manner as they shall by Law direct.

Article 1 Section 2 of the United States Constitution.

Not to mention that Marbury v. Madison basically says that the Supreme Court has the power to rule on the viability of congressional or executive actions.

Of course the Trump supporters like Charlie Kirk prove once again they don’t have a clue how this stuff works.

Apparently Steve King doesn’t mind violating his oath of office by publicly encouraging the president to violate the constitution either.

Thoughts

If you think the citizenship question should be on the census that’s fine. To each his own. If you think that question will determine how many people are in the United states illegally you’re an idiot.

The Trumpers who are supporting this are only doing so because, well Trump does, but also because they are totally missing the obvious; that 13 million legal immigrants live in the United States who are not citizens. They still need to be counted, as per the constitution. They are not “illegal aliens”.

Also who in their right mind thinks an illegal alien is going to admit on a government form that they are in fact breaking the law? This entire issue is totally stupid and quite frankly, racist. It’s not about counting people it’s about trying to intimidate and scare people.

I’m sure the Trump administration thinks it will use this information to try to round people up for deportation, but the question isn’t even the right one for the task he wants to accomplish in the first place. What he should ask is are you a legal resident of the United States. But again, who would answer no?

In doing this story I was reminded of this funny SNL skit about executive orders!
