Listen: Congress, Abbas And United States discussed on Dave Ramsey
"So let's say that you were doing a census of the United States population, wouldn't it makes some sense to ask people, whether they were here, you know, legally a house panel voted to hold attorney general William bar, and commerce secretary Wilbur Ross in contempt of congress over the administration's efforts to shield documents related to its decision to Abbas, citizenship questions in the two thousand twenty cents now, you may be asking yourself. What's so wrong with asking people if they're citizens in the census? I thought the census was all about finding out who's in the country. You're right. That is what the census is designed to do. But Democrats are really angry about this, and you should ask yourself. Why are Democrats so upset about all of this? Why are Democrats so upset about the asking about illegal immigration in the country, asking people their citizenship status? So they've filed a federal case I kid you not with the supreme court trying to suggest that if a legal immigrants don't want to answer those questions. And if associated Hispanic folks in districts with lots of illegal immigrants decide not to answer census workers questions than the senses cannot properly be done. And we ought not to ask the question, which is ridiculous. I mean, I'm sorry that is ridiculous contention. That is akin to saying that, if you ask if census workers, ask about your career your job, which they do if they ask about your career, and are offended by those questions, and are less likely to answer the census bureau question. Well, that means that the census should be barred from asking the question in the first place. The question is, what's the real rationale here? The Democrats have exposed, why exactly they love illegal immigration so much. And I really am puzzled at the contention by Democrats. They wanna stop illegal immigration when they refused to fund basic services at the border like enough beds to provide for people seeking asylum. And the reason they don't want to do that, is because they want those people not held at the border, but released into the interior of the United States. All of this could be solved with the simple act of congress Democrats do not want to pass that act of congress because they have an actual interest in ensuring that illegal immigrants, enter the country, now you're asking yourself, you know, those illegal immigrants they're not going to be able to vote. So why would Democrats want them in the country? Why is that something that is important, too? Democrats and this census bureau controversy really answers the question, so the census bureau controversy is based on Democrats, being very, very upset that there is a memo that was in a dead guys computer. Okay. And what this memo basically suggested is that the census bureau should ask these questions because it would lead to redistricting"
