2000 US Census Asked Citizenship Question, Obama Deleted it in 2010, Trump wants it back

On June 27th the United States Supreme Court ruled on the census citizenship question. SCOTUS sent it back to a lower court.
The decision essentially blocked the citizen question from the 2020 census.

Back in April the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments on whether the Trump administration can include a citizenship question on the high-stakes 2020 Census questionnaire. This was a regularly asked question in historical census forms from 1820-1950.

As Michelle Malkin reported at the time, open borders groups linked to George Soros are leading the movement to exclude the citizenship question from the US Census.

Mexican cartels, human smugglers, open borders Democrats and other anti-American groups also support the measure.

But it wasn’t that long ago that the US Census asked about citizenship.

This is page 4 from the 2000 US Census.

Here is a chart on when the citizenship was asked in the US Census

The citizenship was asked in 2000 on 1/6 of samples.

Obama took the question off the census in 2010 so he could help the Democrat Party to hold power.

Now President Trump wants it back on the census.
