The Trump administration announced today that they will be acquiescing to liberals by removing the citizenship question from the upcoming 2020 census, in what the fake news media is calling the “biggest defeat of his Presidency.”
“We can confirm that the decision has been made to print the 2020 Decennial Census questionnaire without a citizenship question, and that the printer has been instructed to begin the printing process,” DOJ attorney Kate Bailey told the opposing counsel in the census litigation.
Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) believes this capitulation is wholly unnecessary and is urging President Trump to re-consider.
Absolutely. It’s the lawyers advising him. @realDonaldTrump should ignore them. Completely. Print the census with the question – and issue a statement explaining why – “because we should.” Done. https://t.co/ExyvRAmzoN

Roy is fighting the liberal spin on Twitter on behalf of lawful Americans, and wants the President to show the same courage.
Lawless is the state of our border. Lawless is being ruled by Judges on matters of policy choices. Lawless is NOT rightly advising the President to follow the Constitution & include a citizenship question on the census – particularly in light of the opinion!

By capitulating on the census, Trump is going against the will of the voters. A Harvard CAPS/Harris poll that was released on Tuesday shows that a super-majority of voters, 67 percent, believe the U.S. government ought to be permitted to ask U.S. residents if they are lawful citizens on the census.
Trump has changed his tune from a series of Tweets that he issued just last week, which made it seem like he was ready to fight an incomprehensible Supreme Court decision.
“I have asked the lawyers if they can delay the Census, no matter how long, until the United States Supreme Court is given additional information from which it can make a final and decisive decision on this very critical matter,” President Trump tweeted.
“Seems totally ridiculous that our government, and indeed Country, cannot ask a basic question of Citizenship in a very expensive, detailed and important Census, in this case for 2020,” he added.
“Can anyone really believe that as a great Country, we are not able the ask whether or not someone is a Citizen,” Trump asked to highlight the ridiculousness of SCOTUS decision. “Only in America!”
A potential silver lining to the ruling in Department of Commerce v. New York was Chief Justice John Roberts’ assertion that Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross may use his discretion provided by the Constitution’s enumeration clause, the Administrative Procedure Act, and several acts of Congress governing the census to include the census question under a different pretext.
“I expect that the Trump administration’s Commerce Department and Department of Justice could well be back before the Supreme Court’s next term begins in October arguing for the question’s inclusion, and they could well win and include the question,” Richard Hasen wrote for Slate before the Trump administration’s capitulation.
Rep. Roy is hoping that he can spur Trump into reversing his decision and to continue the fight by pushing for another SCOTUS ruling before the census is issued without the crucial citizenship question in 2020.
Democrat Congressmen Introduce Term Limits Legislation for SCOTUS Justices As Trump Prepares Nominee
Three Democrat members of Congress are introducing legislation to institute term limits for Supreme Court justices, as President Trump prepares to nominate his third candidate for the court following the death of progressive liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Democrats Joe Kennedy, Ro Khanna, and Don Beyer are proposing legislation that would limit SCOTUS justice to a maximum term of eighteen years on the court.
Lifetime appointments to the highest court in our land undermine our democratic process and erode progress in our nation.
We must enact 18 year term limits on our Supreme Court justices to continue our march towards a more perfect union. https://t.co/9fCyggP686
— Rep. Joe Kennedy III (@RepJoeKennedy) September 25, 2020
Khanna has proposed an idea that would allow Presidents to appoint two judges in each term. “Senior” members of the court would be required to basically retired for every new member of the court.
When I first ran for Congress in 2014, I proposed limiting terms of Supreme Court Justice to 18-appointments.
Given the recent, dramatic politicization of the Court, it's time for real reform.
— Rep. Don Beyer (@RepDonBeyer) September 25, 2020
It’s pretty funny the Democrats are uniting behind these proposals the moment they appear primed to lose control of the Supreme Court for a generation. They weren’t complaining when Obama was trying to replace Antonin Scalia with progressive Merrick Garland, even going so far as claiming that the stealth liberal was entitled to the seat. Reports emerging Friday suggest that President Donald Trump intends to nominate Amy Coney Barrett, a mostly conservative judge with a pro-life and immigration hawk judicial record.
The judicial branch of government is arguably the most flawed element of American governance, and it’s highly questionable how institutions such as the Supreme Court are able to appoint themselves a nearly unlimited amount of political power.
A better reform proposals would be to institute term limits for justices that only go into effect after the current members of the court vacate their seats. Anything else is simply a political power grab.
