Executive Privilege asserted over Census documents

Executive Privilege asserted over Census documents

President Trump has asserted executive privilege over background documents detailing the decision to include questions about citizenship in the 2020 census. The White House asserts that they have taken this step due to a House motion to hold AG Barr in contempt of Congress. Democrats in the House claim that the documents conceal racist motivations behind the inclusion of the questions.

I don't think Democrats know what Racism means...I think they're thinking Nationalism....You can't just redefine race every time it suits your fancy. Race is just a made up word used to deplatform whoever the real bigots don't like. Race is not the same as Culture, its not the same as Ethnicity, and its not the same as Genetics. Its just a socially significant physical feature. It has no relevence in civilized society or medicine or science in general. Ethnicity is real, Culture is very real, Genetics are real, Race is not. A White person who keeps out White and Brown and Black and freaking Purple humans because they're breaking the law is not a racist, he's just a comander in chief doing his job.

So tired of everything common sense (like knowing how many citizens to determine representation) being labeled racist. The left has lost the plot. Too bad they already run the country. Say goodbye to our beautiful experiment with freedom.

Racist to have a census that asks the question on if you are a Citizen. A new one for me

Yeah its been proven the question was added because of racism and gerrymandering. It was all in the files of a dead Republican strategist.

I think what happens with the left is that 25% are bad shit crazy and influence the others to do stupid stuff. Come on they can’t all be like the sjws.

What does the Barr contempt vote have to do with the census issue? They're completely unrelated

This makes no sense Barr being contempt has absolutely no connection with the Census documents.

Stepping away from illegals don’t people with work visas also get included in the census? Wouldn’t it be nice to know how many actual citizens of the United States there are vs noncitizen who live here, which can be people with visas to asylum seekers to squatters to illegals

So they ask the question. Does anyone e think the illegals will answer truthfully?

Failure of an administration to conduct itself with the law, in regard to ensuring the Congress' requests IS impossible. Do it on these grounds, not flimsy Russia hype.
