Pelosi Claims Trump Is Using Census to ‘Make America White Again’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi slammed President Trump on Monday for his renewed push to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census, claiming it is an effort to “Make America White Again.”

Last week, the President indicated he would consider using an executive order to insert the citizenship question into the census.

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross originally announced in 2017 that the next census would add a question about citizenship, explaining it is “necessary to provide complete and accurate Census block level data.”

Pelosi, no fan of legal immigrants or American citizens being accurately represented so they can receive government services, believes the notion of asking about citizenship is racist.

At a press conference in San Francisco, Pelosi declared that the Trump administration “want[s] to make sure that people, certain people, are counted.”

“Just their people vote and not the general population. That’s why they’re fighting the census,” she added. “This is about keeping – you know … his hat – Make America White Again.”

“Just their people vote”?!

Yea, you mean Americans? What a concept Madame Speaker!

The flip side to that is Democrats just want illegals to vote which would be tantamount to allowing a foreign nation to interfere in the integrity of our elections. We thought even the left viewed that as a bad thing, no?

Ocasio-Cortez Believes Trump Should Be Impeached Over Census

As extreme as Pelosi’s comments are, they pale in comparison to New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who has said the President should be impeached for asking the question of citizenship.

No really, she said that.

“Like the census, there is you know I can’t even – tax bill. It’s like what can – like there is just so much,” she sputtered when asked why she supports impeachment.

Why the Citizenship Question

In reality, the administration’s move is simply an effort to reinstate a question previously removed by the Obama Administration. Who, using Pelosi’s reasoning, apparently wanted to Make America Illegal Again … or something.

Pelosi added that an accurate census is “disgraceful and “not what our founders had in mind.”

It was the Founding Fathers who enshrined in our Constitution the importance of statistics as a vital tool for measuring people, places and economy.

“Think about it, $15-20 billion [to be spent on a census] and you’re not allowed to ask if someone’s a citizen,” President Trump lamented.

Attorney General William Barr on Monday said he has found a legal means to add the citizenship question to the census.

There is “an opportunity potentially to cure the lack of clarity that was the problem and we might as well take a shot at doing that,” Barr said, responding to a Supreme Court decision to block the question on the basis that it seemed “contrived.”

Pelosi has also complained that the President’s merit-based immigration proposal, widely viewed as a reasonable solution to overhaul the current system, was an effort to “make America white again.”

  • Pelosi is insane saying deplorables wanting to know how many illegals are here is making America white again. Come to think of it America would be better off white again.

  • I have already decided that when the census comes, I WILL WRITE ON MY CENSUS FORM: I AM A NATURAL BORN CITIZEN OF THE U.S.A. If we all do this voluntarily, it will let the Pelosi's in Congress know that we don't approve of her explanation of President Trump's reasoning. That question should be answered EVERY CENSUS so that there is an accurate account of AMERICAN CITIZENS ONLY. That's the purpose of the Census!!!

  • How would asking a question about citizenship make America white? Her argument doesn't make any sense. Why should any citizen (regardless of cultural or ethnic background) object to the question? Nancy is being deceptive. What she is concerned about is the proportion of seats in the House. "Representatives shall be apportioned among the sever States according to their respective numbers." All citizens (and only citizens) must be counted for this purpose regardless of any other consideration. This does not discriminate against or in any way harm any citizen. Any non citizen that may be concerned about the census can just ignore it.

  • We need to answer the citizen question when we get a passport. Is that unconstitutional? Employers ask if one is a citizen. People like old Nancy with no ideas on anything, always yell racism at everything they don't like. Doesn't matter if race is a issue or not. Nancy represents a area of people crapping on the sidewalks, homeless people, high crime and she lives behind a wall, and calls a wall immoral. Her lies are immoral.

  • WELCOME NEW CITIZENS! GLAD TO HAVE YOU!

    THE TERM "FUNNY FARM," TELLS YOU WHERE NANCI PELOSI IS FROM.
