Yesterday we told you how a question intended to be included on the upcoming 2020 census has been taken before the Supreme Court by critics who say it is offensive because it asks if everyone living in your home is “a citizen of the United States.”

On today’s show, we asked whether the Supreme Court will allow this innocuous question or will it bow to those crying racism.

The Supreme Court heard oral arguments yesterday to determine whether the Trump Administration can ask of every person in every census taker’s household: “Is this person a citizen of the United States?”

The census is how we determine how our Representatives are apportioned, our voting districts, and how we know how many people are living here, among other key pieces of information for governmental planning. It does not ask “are you here illegally?” It simply asks if everyone living in your house is a citizen or not.

This same question, worded exactly the same, appeared on the census under President Bill Clinton. No one protested or publicly called it racist then. It was President Obama who removed the citizenship question.

Why are they only complaining about the citizenship question now? Why is it suddenly a constitutional crisis?

The answer, sadly, is just politics. The Left will oppose President Trump at every turn, even when he’s doing exactly what they did before.
