If you did not received a census questionaire, you are considered an illegal alien.

Some of the rural communities surrounding Bloomfield missing the forms might have had a census survey dropped off by a census worker rather than arrive by mail, potentially causing confusion among residents, said Veronica Arzate De Reyes, the Census Bureau spokeswoman in New Mexico.
What, does she think we're stupid? I receive pamphlets from religious organizations, cookies from girl scouts, flyers from neighbor kids doing fundraisers. I did NOT receive a census form. I did not think my form was a cookie or an order for fundraiser items. The form was not dropped off in the guise of a Baptist gift bag. I simply did NOT get one. Nor did my neighbors and several others I have asked.

So there's the answer...people who haven't received them had their copies given to someone else. Ha! My work here is done.

I understand they forgot a few little things, like Jails and Hospitals...oh well, it is YOUR Government. Every time one of them Census people knock on a door it cost YOU $66 bucks. Remember, every swinging dick the Government hires cost YOU money - How long are you going to put up with it? Remember, we got "America" by taking it away from the bad buys in England - with guns (they, like the people in office now) didn't want to go, so by God, we took it. We need to Take America Back from the "bad guys" in Washington DC. I want MY America back!

Does that mean I won't have to pay any taxes for the next ten years since I'm not counted as a U.S. citizen?

I sent mine off, but couldn't figure out what race/ethnicity a hispanic person puts on it, so I left it blank.
