We still need to keep track of illegals so we can know the numbers diminishing or growing.

Where is the issue? Of course people who have illegally invaded the country should not be counted in the census. Do you count a burglar as a family member?

All states should be doing this! When schools don't receive enough federal funding, the illegals would be turned away!

not counting the illegals is stupid. sounds like our new government. we need to know how many we, the taxpayers are having to take care of they should be counted as illegals, green cards or whatever they are considered. senator vitter of Louisiana is going to fix the deficit by cutting the welfare. does this mean he will get the illegals off medicare, medicaid. Why do all policiticans want to start making their cuts at the bottom. why not start at the top. cut salaires expense accounts. extend the bush tax cuts to the poor and middle class and tax the millionaire and the billionaires, cut out the loop holes for the manny many corportations that are not paying taxes. cut the loop holes for the rich. leave the the poor and middle class people alone. Some abuse the system, but the little money they get is nothing compared to the money made by congressment and government workers. start the cuts where the money is instead of where the money isn't and may be , just maybe you will get another term, but you won't if i have anything to do with it. enough is enough.

Many of the children of undocumented workers are citizens and should be counted.

True enough.

However, Sen. Vitter wants to cut all entitlement programs not because of illegals, but because they make up 20% of our national budget, way more than any other program in our budget. 20% translated into $$ is trillions.

And, as it just so happens, entitlement programs are where illegals get most, if not all, federal assistance, aka taxpayer money. Further, it has been proven statistically that illegals take more out of the federal pot than they pay in.

Census or not, what the feds really need to do is demand proof of legal residency of all applicants for any service. EDUCATION MOST IMPORTANTLY. Plyler vs Doe should be revisted and re-examined.

If you were an American citizen instead of an illegal alien, you would think otherwise.

I also hope we win but not counting won't stop them from coming here or get rid of them. That is the real issue

The SCOTUS will eventually rule that all "persons" shall be counted.

Here in chicago they weren't being counted anyway, as I have said many posts before they intentionaly eluded the cenus workers until they gave up! If people could have seen the slips on the doors well into the month of may mainly hispanic neighborhoods, they don't wish to be counted and that what's makes it that much harder for me to even accept them and their anchor childern. I sent my census form 1 week after I got it, I understand how important it is to keep up with americans and the potentail needs and schooling, money, programs ect... we need. Illegals do not care, here in chicago many were not counted and when they are not counted they absorb money that was meant for people that were counted! I hope this does not stand we need to count as many illegals and their childern as possiable so we know how many to kick out of the USA! Even if that means using schools and hospitals, we need to track these people dangerous or not they do not belong here, we should cut all services to them and then send them on the next bus out of here with their childern. Grandfather them in a package with the parents!

when they are counted that means the are counted as citizens,meaning they will get more reps in washington and at the local area.it will make for another power shift putting in place more traitors who support them.

as it stands the feds refuse to pay the states in full for taking up all the slack the fed made by not enforcing laws.

They shouldn't be counted. When the Fed Ed money hits the states/schools the truth as to who should be in a seat and who shouldn't will come forth. I don't owe any illegal a damned thing, as well as their ilk!
