So now it's clear we count illegal aliens as citizens. So ethnocentric polticians can get a power base and money . Is this America ? This is digusting, where is the the border patrol ? Where is the enforcement of immigration laws. The census is being co opted by foreign nationals. This is treason. This is madness.

////Groves told the crowd. "If I violate that law, I can go to prison////////

This funny as hades this _______is telling Invading Illegal Aliens whom have INVADED the USA by crossing the Mexican Border Illegal, are in the USA Illegally, working in the USA Illegally, many Illegally using stolen SSN Numbers Stolen or falsify or forged Federal, State, County, City Identity Paper illegally, drive without license illegally, drive illegally drunk, and on and on that -------he--------

a very high USA GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL can go to prison if he violate that law which states he can not reveal their status to other USA Government Agencies and EXPECT them to believe it will ensure he keeps their status secret from other USA Government Authorities.

These illegal Aliens well know THERE IS A DIFFERENCE between CAN go to Prison and going to Prison for breaking USA laws.

They know because if CAN go to Prison was WILL go to Prison for VIOLATING USA Laws they would be in Prison or Immediately ARRESTED and DEPORTED instead of being suck up to by many USA Government Officials and USA Politicians

I dont know why they have to bother with "easing their fears"- seriously, if the illegals were really afraid, they wouldnt be so bold as to march over here and squat.

And let's not forget "it's their federal tax money paying for this." Ya right! Talk about a suck up.......If they think I.C.E. won't get access to their information, think again! They will and we'll all celebrate when their arzes are carted off the jail. lol

The immigration forms up to 1930 always asked country of birth, native language spoken and citizenship status. Census info after that hasn't been released yet. You're correct - subversion of our government by people who want to destroy it.

That's a good idea. Send the form back saying if you count illegals, it's not a census and i don't have to comply.

If and I stress if, they are afraid. It is because of all the lies they have told. Probably afaid they will get tripped up and lose some freebie they are collecting.

Let's find out where they are, and then ship them out. Their voices here should be stifled....they can demand all they want to in their countries of origin, especially Mexico. Why should the taxpayers of this country subsidize Mexico's corruption? The only thing illegal aliens are contributing to is the collapse of our economy and making the rich richer.

The trheat is the loss of money to each state and seats in the House.....we should let our representaives know that WE will have a far greater effect on the outcome than counting the ILLEGALS will...that will force our reps to demand that only legal citizens will be counted....LEGAL citizens still carry more clout than ILLEGALS!!!!
