The Democratic Party is just as dishonest and corrupt in its opposition to putting a citizenship question in the census as the Republicans are in proposing one. The Democrats are stuffing the ballot box by bringing in as many immigrants as they can, legally or illegally, believing that these immigrants from poor countries will be dependent on welfare for years to come, and since the Democrats are the party of welfare, they will vote Democratic.
The immigrants may not be able to vote right away, but as soon as they are in a position of power, the Democrats will pass some kind of expeditious naturalization law that will allow newly arrived immigrants to vote. Reagan signed the Immigration Reform and Control Act in 1986, legalizing illegal immigrants who had entered the US before 1982, basically legalizing them after only five years. Already the Democrats are passing legislation in several states to give the vote to felons who have served their time, believing that they will all vote Democratic. The Democrats see immigration as a much more powerful means of increasing their voters than reforming gerrymandering, for example.
The Democrats are opposed to the census citizenship question because it would reveal the enormous changes they are making to the character of the United States. They argue that lack of information is a good thing; there are facts Americans should not know. The Democrats are hiding the truth. Americans should not be permitted to know who is an American citizen. Big brother only allows you to know what he wants you to know. The Democrats are doing exactly what they accuse Trump of doing, but they are even more dishonest and devious about it.
The Democrats argue that they oppose the citizenship question because its presence would prevent Hispanics from participating in the census. First, this implies that Democrats think Hispanics are dishonest scofflaws, who routinely break laws, as illegal aliens certainly did to enter this country. Second, the Democrats want to make sure all Hispanics are counted because their plan is to give them all welfare to persuade them to vote Democratic. Thus, for them it is important to get the highest possible head count to support federal expenditures that are linked to population. It better enables them to buy Hispanic votes for Democrats.
The idea that the Democratic effort to prevent the census from counting citizens while increasing the count of non-citizen immigrants is motivated by high-minded love of the poor is balderdash. It is simply to increase the power of the Democratic Party vis-à-vis the Republican Party. Preventing the count of citizens is like hiding library books that the Democrats don’t want you to read. They want you to be ignorant. They want to manipulate the vote for all national elections.
It is unfortunate that the Supreme Court ratified this powerplay by the Democrats, but perhaps it is a payoff to them for its making George W. Bush President over Al Gore, in a similarly corrupt decision that was basically a coup. The Supreme Court has fouled its nest, but Trump is right to accept its decision because it is the final legal arbiter, although decisions like this will continue to undermine the court’s moral authority.
