The President of the United States Donald Trump has found a way to learn the citizenship of US residents without adding the appropriate column in the census forms. This is evidenced by the text of the decree, distributed on the White House website.
“The Census Bureau has concluded from experience that the administrative records to which it has access can determine the citizenship status of about 90 percent of the population,” the head of state said. He ordered all offices to provide the information requested by the Ministry of Commerce [responsible for the census to the maximum extent.
In early July, the Supreme Court blocked the question of adding “citizenship” to the census, which insisted the American leader, due to insufficient grounds. According to the opponents of this idea, the inclusion of the column in the census forms will lead to the fact that millions of people will not be counted, because they will be afraid to admit the absence of American citizenship. Trump has promised to do “whatever it takes” to complete this “important initiative.”
The fight against illegal migrants is one of Trump’s main campaign promises. He has repeatedly stated that as a result of the “chain reaction when after one of the immigrants to the United States moved his relatives in the country from other countries move “the worst representatives of society.” According to him, such sponsorship should be limited to spouses and minor children.
