The ruling went 6-3. The Court referred to the challenge led by the state of New York and immigrant rights groups (which are really about illegal aliens getting de facto amnesty) “premature” because the way they described the the consequences of the president’s arguments are still considered “conjecture.”
“At present, this case is riddled with contingencies and speculation that impede judicial review,” the high court said.
“The President, to be sure, has made clear his desire to exclude aliens without lawful status from the apportionment base.”
“But the President qualified his directive by providing that the Secretary should gather information ‘to the extent practicable’ and that aliens should be excluded ‘to the extent feasible,’” they added.
The Court ruled that it was too early to rule on the legality of Trump’s plan, saying that it isn’t clear how many illegal aliens who don’t belong here the president is asking to exclude and whether the number of House seats would be affected. I don’t know why those considerations are even a part of the equation. The people Trump wants to exclude from the US Census are not living here legally. It shouldn’t even be up for discussion.
“Consistent with our determination that standing has not been shown and that the case is not ripe, we express no view on the merits of the constitutional and related statutory claims presented. We hold only that they are not suitable for adjudication at this time,” the court said.
Three America-hating leftist justices dissented, making the ridiculous claim that the attempt to removed illegal aliens in the country from the US Census is unlawful. These justices see it in a political sense of Democrats vs Republicans, instead of how Trump see it as illegal aliens are not lawfully here. They cost the American taxpayers billion of dollars each year, and a portion of them commit crimes against American citizens.
“I believe this Court should say so,” Justice Stephen Breyer wrote, joined by the other two Justices who want to destroy our Constitution, Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor. They rarely ever rule for the Constitution.
How is it unlawful to counting illegal aliens as illegal aliens and now US citizens? Does Bozo Breyer not know the difference? Does he not value US citizenship? Honest to God, how can a Supreme Court justice believe that illegal aliens should be counted as citizens? It just boggles the mind and it frightens me to no end for the future of the republic.
The Trump administration wants to remove non-citizens from the census count. The Democrats are upset that it could alter the representation some states receive in the House of Representatives, which is based on population. But these non citizens should never have been counted in the first place.
Is it the height of bullschtein to believe that our Founding Fathers wanted non citizens counted as American citizens.
If Trump was to win this case, then big Democratic states with large illegal alien populations like New York, California which has the large population of illegal aliens who are protected by sanctuary cities like New York City and Los Angeles who help illegal aliens evade federal law enforcement from deporting them, they would be disproportionately impacted. Well Boo hoo. They should have thought of that before they counted illegal aliens in the first place.
Think about this. The state of California alone could up to three seats if illegal aliens are no longer counted as citizens. The average congressman represents about 700,000 people. That’s up to two million one-hundred thousand illegal aliens that we know of illegally living in just one state alone. There are probably three times as many that have never been counted.
The census has already been completed. Officials at the Commerce Department that overseas the US Census Bureau are trying to figure out the number of illegal aliens in the country. Not an easy task since they are as untrustworthy as a Democrat.
Trump and the attorneys representing the effort have argued that their case is both Constitutional and within his Constitutionally lawful authority as president. But since when has that ever mattered to the leftists on courts? For example, President Barack Obama created the DACA program out of thin air, something that a president is not allowed to do. The constitution’s Article I gives sole authority of creating laws to the Congress. Obama did DACA through an executive order with zero powers behind it. Ever since George Washington, any president can rescind any past president’s executive order, except when it’s President Donald Trump, because the Supreme Court told President Trump that he was not allowed to shut down the unconstitutional DACA executive order.
