Federal Judge Throws a Fit Over Immigration Question in the U.S. Census

Published

The Trump Administration’s decision to add a citizenship question to the 2020 U.S. census has made a federal judge to throw a fit.

On Wednesday March 7, Judge Richard Seeborg argues that adding this question “threatens the very foundation of our democratic system.”

Seeborg continued, asserting that the “commerce secretary’s decision to add the question was arbitrary and capricious and would violate a constitutional requirement that the census count everyone in the country.” According to Seeborg, evidence shows that this question would a create a significant undercount of non-citizens and Latinos.

Seeborg’s statements on Wednesday made him the second judge to declare the Trump administration’s census decision to be illegal. A federal judge in New York blocked the administration from adding the citizenship question from the census. As a result, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed last month to review that decision.

The state of California and several cities in the state sued the Trump administration over the citizenship question as well.

In the view of several state attorneys in California, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross failed to take into consideration that this citizenship question would impose heavy costs on California and also make it lose one congressional seat due to the reduced percentage of immigrants responding to the survey, thus leading to an undercount.

The distribution of congressional seats within a state and the billions of dollars in federal funding they receive are based off of census numbers.

The Justice Department defended its decision by arguing that census officials make in-person follow-up visits to get a more accurate count.

In court documents, Justice Department attorneys asserted that households that skip the citizenship question but fill out the rest of the questionnaire are still counted.

It’s rather ironic that a judge is claiming that census questions inquiring about citizenship are threats to democracy.

The fact of the matter is that mass migration under the current welfare environment we live in is a legitimate threat to our democracy and social cohesion. Across the pond, Europe offers a lurid image of what happens when mass migration takes hold in a country.

Leftist judges like Seeborg and their Democrat cronies will obviously push back against any efforts to curtail immigration, given immigrants’ propensity to vote for the party that gives them the most handout aka the Democratic party.

There is no room for bromides about democracy or virtue signaling about racism when discussing immigration matters. What’s at stake is the very cultural fabric of the United States.

If that is disrupted, we can kiss the liberties we cherish as Americans goodbye.

The real threat to our democracy is the open borders status quo we are all subject to.

Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation

Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.

If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.

Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional. 

AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.

In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.

At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”

In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.” 

Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”

According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”

When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”

Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
