The Trump administration is preparing a new executive order that would prohibit illegal aliens from filling out the U.S. Census in a manner similar to that of citizens and legal residents, according to reports sourced from an anonymous administration official on Friday.
The order, which could be signed as early as Friday this week, will institute a ban on illegal alien census participation. It’s unclear how this ban would penalize or forbid illegal alien census data. Currently, there are no penalties or legal mechanisms to restrict such data from being submitted, allowing free reign for unlawful immigrants to utilize the census.
One of the decennial Census’ primary implications is the allocation of seats in the House of Representatives to states. Currently, Census data that includes the filings of illegal aliens gives unlawful residents of the country a form of de facto representation in Congress, serving to provide seats in Congress to areas of the country highly populated by illegal immigrants. It’s been said that California could potentially lose three seats in the House or more if illegal immigrants were excluded from the census.
The Trump administration has previously sought to implement a census provision that would ask respondents to state whether or not they are citizens. The citizenship question was ultimately tossed as a regulation by the Supreme Court, with nominal conservative John Roberts joining judicial liberals in rejecting the requirement.
Census data that excludes illegal immigrants from participating could also be used to accurately discern the number of unlawful residents of the country, a figure which some have argued could be up to 20 million people.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Rebuffed From Democratic Convention, While RINO John Kasich Will Speak
Kasich’s more of a Democrat than AOC.
Reports for plans for the Democratic National Convention indicate that progressive New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will not be giving a speech for the program of events, while former Ohio Governor John Kasich- a nominal Republican- will be speaking in a primetime slot in support of Joe Biden for President.
The prioritization of Kasich over Ocasio-Cortez shows Biden’s interest in appealing to suburban affluent Republican voters, even if it comes at a detriment to turning out the Democratic base of urban millennials. The strategy could backfire significantly, especially if Ocasio-Cortez herself chooses to respond in kind and only provide lukewarm support for Biden.
Initial reports suggested that AOC would be given a primetime speaking role, only for sources close to the Bronx Democrat to correct such an assertion. It appears that AOC will instead speak in a limited capacity, in a function reflecting her role as a leader of Biden’s climate working task force.
Joe Biden may be the only individual to speak personally from the convention hall in which the event is principally located, on account of coronavirus social distancing measures. Biden campaign operatives are reportedly making “ruthless cuts” to accommodate for the digital nature of the event, forcing out many Democrats who would otherwise speak at the convention in person.
Kasich will speak on the same night as Vermont Independent socialist Senator Bernie Sanders, in a gesture that’s intended to highlight the range of Biden’s base of support.
