Census question might have discriminatory motive

New evidence suggests that racial discrimination may be the motive behind the push to ask everyone in the country about citizenship status, a federal judge noted Monday. ’As more puzzle pieces are placed on the mat, a disturbing picture of the decision makers’ motives takes shape’, District Judge George Hazel of Maryland ruled. The Supreme court is expected to decide on the issue this week.

IDK what their motive is, it’s a hell of a lot more valid of a question that what race or gender people are.

Of course. Its discriminating between citizens and non-citizens. Isn't that the point? I fail to see how this is a problem unless your goal is to exploit illegal immigrants for more government funding and votes.

If you still believe anything revolving around any type of moral claim (sexist racist) you are dumb as hell sorry. I can't believe they are still trying this after getting fucked so hard in 2016.

Why would illegals even fill out a census and risk putting themselves on someone's radar?

Since when is it discriminatory to ask if you are a citizen xD! It's a fucking verification method! I would however apply the census question for both citizens and U.S residents with no citizenship.

That makes no sense. American is not a race and that is what they are asking. Are you American? That is in no way racist. It would also stop anyone of any color from answering yes to that question if they are not American. People from Sweden, UK, France, any of these places would all still have to say they are not American. What is wrong in these people's head's?
