Dump's Census will ask about citizenship

So why is this wrong? Aside from the obvious attempt to 1) scare illegal immigrants from completing it and 2) hoping that if they do they will then face deportation? The Census is suppose to count all citizens regardless of citizenship status, because an accurate count is needed for decisions like distribution of federal funds and drawing both federal and state district voting maps. So part of the motivation is to scare illegals from participating so that those districts that typically vote Democratic will be redrawn to eliminate their fair representation.

The Attorneys General of California and New York have already filed suit to stop this blatant Repugnantan power grab. The suits are calling the question unconstitutional because that august document requires "actual enumeration" in the Census, meaning counting everyone.
