Self-serving Census question

Share or Comment

To the Editor;
I have family members who have green cards. They work, pay taxes, are productive members of their communities. Does this mean they don’t get counted, because they are not citizens? There must be millions in this status and in varying stages of becoming legal citizens. It is a slow process. Does this mean they don’t count?

President Trump’s attempt to add a citizenship question to the Census, and his manipulating — even in the face of the Supreme Court saying his reasons are contrived — show his motives were self-serving. I thought he believed in law and order? I think most folks see his contrived manipulating for what it is: “Make America White Again.” How sad.
