Should illegal aliens be included in the census count?
- RobertLv 72 months agoFavourite answer
No. Criminal aliens should be rounded up and removed so there will be no need to count them. If you compassionate snowflakes want to pay their costs out of your own pocket fine, but I don't No criminal alien should be counted in a census which determines voter representation for a district because they are not legal voters A district should not be rewarded with more representation because they invite law breakers to live there.

No, because they don't don't and shouldn't be here in the first place.

The census should require reporting of status. E.g. tourists are included in the census, but they should be reported as tourists so that Congressional districts are NOT determined by non-citizens! Itemize: US citizen, legal permanent resident (with currently valid green card), temporary visa holder (e.g. student, foreign employee, tourist), and not legally present (for all visa violators & illegal entrants).

Illegal aliens, tourists, and other people in the USA either temporarily or illegally should not be counted in the census for the purpose of allocating seats in the House of Representatives.

Yes EVERY person residing in OUR country needs to be counted by the census BUT they're presence should NOT be used for calculating ANY representation in congress or ANY other part of the federal government OR used for determining ANY federal monies going to ANY state that supports ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION! If these LIEberal left demoCROOK states want to hide and support them then they need to do so WITHOUT using them to gain a larger voice in our federal government!
The question about immigration status was on the census forms from around 1820 up until around 1950 OVER 100 YEARS and just why it was removed is a mystery from my limited searching time BUT there can be NO good valid reason for it's removal other than for a political party or state(s) to politically benefit from it's removal!

In terms of sharing the financial pain amongst the states instead of overly penalizing the taxpayers of the states where migrants most congregate, yes. In terms of using Census data to determine Congressional representation, no. But we can't split hairs in this manner as we're not allowed to ask who's here legally and who's not.

Really depends on the country and if they allow/enable illegals to live/work in the country or if they are a country who enforce immigration laws, seek out and remove them.
The census was set up to enable the Government to know who lives in the country, what ages, occupations they have and so they can plan ahead for spending on housing, school, health requirements. roads/transport links etc...so if you live in a country where illegals are 'accepted or ignored' once there, given driving licenses, allowed to rent property, allowed to work and breed...then the Government needs to know as they have accept illegals are part of the future society to provide for them as well as to provide for their legal citizens.

All filthy peasants shouldn’t be counted. That way America’s population would only be 3 million.

Of course they should, they are human and humans are NOT illegal! Try tuning in to CNN every now and then to learn some honesty and TRUTH!!

I don't see any reason why they should be counted. They can't or are not supposed to vote so they are not counted for anything that counts.
