House Speaker Nancy Pelosi slammed President Trump on Monday for his renewed push to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census, claiming it is an effort to “Make America White Again.”
Last week, the President indicated he would consider using an executive order to insert the citizenship question into the census.
Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross originally announced in 2017 that the next census would add a question about citizenship, explaining it is “necessary to provide complete and accurate Census block level data.”
Pelosi, no fan of legal immigrants or American citizens being accurately represented so they can receive government services, believes the notion of asking about citizenship is racist.
At a press conference in San Francisco, Pelosi declared that the Trump administration “want[s] to make sure that people, certain people, are counted.”
“Just their people vote and not the general population. That’s why they’re fighting the census,” she added. “This is about keeping – you know … his hat – Make America White Again.”
