The census of 2020 will for the first time add a question that has not been asked since 1950. Are you a citizen of the United States? With the increase in immigration raids by ICE under the Trump administration this appears to be another tool that will cause stress and uncertainty in the immigrant communities across the country. The state of California with the largest population of undocumented people will be hit hardest when it comes to Federal-aid related to population totals. This one question has the potential to make millions of people both invisible and targets of deportation at the same time. The president has made statements to his base that he would like to be able to serve three terms in office. It seems that his agenda to MAGA will take a lot longer to implement fully with just the standard two terms of his predecessors.
America was first built on the backs of those who had no choice about how they got here. The slave trade supplied those first immigrants. Once the groundwork was done the country then began to flourish because of the labor of immigrants from all parts of the globe. The problem for those who seek citizenship there are many barriers set up by the government to prevent citizenship status. The coming census will cause problems for those who are not aware of one question. Are you a citizen of the United States?

I am a 64year old male. I live in California. I continute to blog as a way to give my opinion on things that I read about. I am a baby boomer and I feel that because of the life I have experienced, and the times we are living through the need to be examined with a critical eye. I feel this is my purpose in life. Live,learn, and comment. I will attempt to make this happen.
