Are they legally supposed to be counted?
Counted in the census or counted toward apportionment of representatives etc?

Either way I don't know the answer.  I think they probably shouldn't be for the latter.

Yes, hence my question.
If you want to vote Democrat, you are being very disloyal to Jewish people and very disloyal to Israel, Mr. Trump said.

Similar to being against voter ID laws. They want to be sure they can count the illegals.
I guess I should have expected a political answer from you.

So you were expecting a non-political answer to a political question?

They are supposed to be counted in the census and (at least the way things are now), they are counted regarding allocation of representatives. Neither of those things would change by adding the question.

The claim against the question is that it might lead to fewer illegal residents responding to the survey, and therefore fewer representatives in areas that have a lot of illegal residents.

No need to make it a political question. You can make "When is next Tuesday" a political question if you want to.

Why?
I don't make the law.
Why (rhetorical) is Trump president when more people voted for HRC?

Because if you take away all the illegals' votes Trump would have more than her?

No need to make it a political question.
So if your original question was "can someone give a non-political explanation for why the opposition party is opposing this action taken by the administration?" I believe the answer to that is no.

You basically can't take politics out of anything. That is why this country is so screwed up.

Can someone explain what the big deal is with wanting the citizenship question on the census?

Because the Census is supposed to count how many ppl live in the US of A. Regardless whether they are here legally or not.



Are you asking why someone would be against it?

Similar to being against voter ID laws. They want to be sure they can count the illegals.

-1

Only US citizens have the right to vote

Are they legally supposed to be counted?

Yes. Trump agrees that they need to be counted. He just wants to point it out to everyone what the situation is...

They are supposed to be counted in the census and (at least the way things are now), they are counted regarding allocation of representatives. Neither of those things would change by adding the question.

The claim against the question is that it might lead to fewer illegal residents responding to the survey, and therefore fewer representatives in areas that have a lot of illegal residents.

+1

It's also in sync with where the Democratic partys position on immigration overall.
