More Washington Swamp news…
In what appears to be one final middle finger to President Donald Trump, the bureaucrats who run the U.S. Census Bureau are slow-walking apportionment figures that are used to divide up congressional seats.
It’s the first time in four decades the Census Bureau will miss its deadline.
Why this year? Easy. Think President Trump’s ongoing effort to prevent illegal aliens from being used to decide congressional seats.
The missed deadline will likely subvert President Trump's plans to remove people living in the country without legal permission from the process.
Trump pushed to have immigrants living in the U.S. without legal permission discounted from the final census count, which is used by the U.S. House of Representatives to decide how many House members each state gets – a move that some theorized would benefit GOP lawmakers.
The 2020 census will also be used to help determine how to redraw district lines, a process that occurs every 10 years. …
The deadline on Dec. 31, has yet to be missed since first being established in 1976, though officials say they hope to have it completed shortly after the New Year. But the bureau did not specify whether or not that will be met before President-elect Joe Biden enters office on Jan. 20, 2021. …
The President then sends Congress a report of each state's population along with their allotted number of House districts. Although if the figures are not submitted by the Census Bureau until after Jan. 20, then President-elect Joe Biden would gain control over the numbers and how they are interpreted.
“This important process, which has been a part of every decennial census, is critical to produce data that can be used for apportioning seats in the House of Representatives among the states,” the Census Bureau said in a statement Wednesday. “The schedule for reporting this data is not static. Projected dates are fluid.”
This is just a blatant attempt by careerist bureaucrats who back their Democratic masters.
Anything to poke Trump in the eye one more time before he is forced to leave office after a fraudulent election.
America, we have lost control of our government. It’s time patriots stopped fighting amongst ourselves and focus our energies on taking our country back.
